It was over 5 years ago that we last spent time in a hospital room. There was joy for new life and a renewed sense of purpose. We came home to cards of congratulations, a newly decorated room (blue this time), new clothes, and 4 happy little girls waiting to see their new brother. It was a time we will never forget.
We will soon be coming home again. And again there will be joy for new life and a renewed sense of purpose, cards of encouragement, and 4 happy girls and a boy waiting to see their mother. Daily they ask when we will be home. Deep yearning, just like Tara and I. They all have dibs on the first cuddles with mom and are excited for the next Happy Friday most likely a week from tomorrow.
Today the first round of chemotherapy was done. I watched for several hours as the drugs dripped through the IV and entered Tara’s body. We waited in anticipation as if something were about to happen. Tara said it felt like a normal IV. But to me it felt like lighting a fuse. Things are set in motion and you cannot stop it and you are just waiting for something big to happen. It never did, at least not yet. We talked about life, faith, friends and wigs.
Thank you all for your encouragement and prayers.
“But we will bless The Lord from this time forth forevermore. Praise The Lord.” – Psalm 115:18
