Long before any of us heard the word "cancer" and "treatments" and "surgeries" Mat and Bethany gave us our Christmas gift last August. It was a vacation this next week in Peurta Vijarta - at a vacation Villa they had reserved. The whole Bell/ Good Clan gets to go be together for one entire week. I had been saving my personal days -- my school has graciously allowed me to get away for the rest time and to renew my strength this close to the end of school-- the doctor has given me a "get out of jail" card from treatments next week and we're headed for Mexico in the morning - with lots of food warnings and masks.
The past few weeks the fatigue and dizziness have been more intense on days 3-5 -- but ibuprofen helps the body ache. The numbness in my feet has improved and I can use my fingers much better. Bethany and the kids dropped me off at TCI for dr. visit and treatment yesterday and I asked Sydney what she was going to do yesterday -- she shot back, "Go to Mexico" I don't think she even KNOWS what or where MX is -- but she's in! We get to celebrate Marshall's 33rd birthday with him and Katie -- Get lots of cuddle time with the kids -- Walk the beach with the kiddos exploring all God's creation and critters -- looking for sand crabs -- Make lots of memories --- REST up --and RENEW - and READY ourselves for what's ahead. Jan Good (my son-in-law's mother) is healing well from her surgery and treatments. God is in the daily and in the details. HE's the provider of everything -- HE's my healer -- HIS timing is perfect.
