March 7, 2007 marked my last round of Chemotherapy. It has been difficult. I gained a total of 16 pounds
because of the steroids they gave me to fight off the side affects of the chemo. I lost my hair for the second time
with this new drug. But despite it all, I continued to work every day and maintain a positive attitude. I can't
say that I didn't ahve emotional ups and downs because I did. But I can say that I never lost my faith or my trust in
the Lord and his healing power. Many people told me how brave and courageous I was during my treatments. I don't
see myself that way. I just see myself as doing what I had to do to stay alive. I just hope I never have to do
this again in this lifetime.
I have finished my chemo. I am thankful the process is over. Now I pray for a quick recovery. Please
mend my body. Give me strength and help me to get through each day. Help me to remain positive despite how I might
feel on some days. I thank you for lifting me up in spirit. Give others out there the same strength and love that
you have given me. Help them to also remain positive. Help keep their eyes fixed on you daily.
