Checking in to the hospital

Cancer cells begin dying today. I am headed over to the hospital to check in for chemo. They will probably be giving it to me in a couple of hours. I will be there until mid-day tomorrow. They will be keeping a close on me because based on my history, I havce a high chance of having a bad allergic reaction to one of the drugs. The chemo specialist told us that I will be getting at least three powerful premeds to avoid reaction. They are overdoing it. Sounds good to me - anything worth doing is worth overdoing. I'm not too concerned about the reaction itself, I just don't want them to discontinue giving me this chemo due to any problems. The bottom line is that I need it.

Lord, use this stuff to do shock and awe on that tumor.

May God give you the easiest chemo experience possible. I know "easy" doesn't compute with chemo but God is All Powerful. I ask this in Jesus's Holy Name.

Not a hair can fall from your head without the permission of your Heavenly Father (Heidelberg Catechism #1) You are in His capable hands AND you are being prayed for by your brothers and sisters in Christ. Praying that the process of eliminating the cancer completely will be accomplished. We want you around for a long time.
