I left off on the previous blog (#47) talking about the numbness I was feeling when sitting for longer than 20 or 30 minutes. I’m learning to take things as they come and see how I can make it better while rejoicing and living with the results. Now I know that I cannot sit for longer than approximately 25 minutes before my buttocks get numb. If I sit any longer, the numbness goes down my legs. I have finished my 4th chemo treatment (4 down 10 to go). Now, I’m having a continuous sensitivity to touching, eating or drinking anything cold. The cold sensitivity didn’t go away like it did the first two chemo treatments. I let my doctor know, he indicated that there will be some sensitivity and tingling because of the chemo treatments. Bye-Bye to ice cream. After going through chemo, radiation and multiple surgeries, I have lost about 55 pounds. I have noticed that I have gained a couple of pounds since I started chemo treatments, but I guess that is expected since I can eat out again. The first scripture that I was going to put my thought(s) to was; Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3. I thought long and hard for hours and I could not come up with a complete sentence to write. After sleeping on it and praying about it the Holy Spirit brought my sister-in-law to mind. Afterward, I was able to write the words I believe the Holy Spirit had put on my heart. Here are my response and understanding of Proverbs 16:3. My plans should never be made without God. My plans need to align with God’s plan. If I put God’s work first and do what He wants, He will provide me with what I need.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6.
