I have seen a lot of the same people on Fridays --I've gotten attached to the care staff -- they are all extremely attentive and kind.
I recognize several patients from week to week.
Today a woman that I'd not met before, and who comes for monthly treatments, joined me in the orange section of the infusion room.
She noticed I was knitting for Teeny Baby and loved the bright colors --we chit-chatted a bit and then her treatments started.
She was so friendly and engaging.
I watched the tenderness between she and her husband -- I could tell he was preparing for a sermon -- He was so attentive to her.
They laughed about lots of things he was reading on line. He tried to keep her spirits up.
She heard me tell a nurse that Terry was a Pastor and the reason he always had his computer was he was teaching on line during my treatments -
She mentioned ministry to me and we talked about the adventure of working with people in their special times.
I was celebrating my last treatment day -- and the nurses were hugging and congratulating me all over the place.
She was getting several different meds through her port. I was finishing mine up.
We discussed our disease -- there are so many different cancers affecting women today.
Mine: breast cancer -- with strong belief for healing
Hers: liver cancer -- she'd been in treatment 3 1/2 years. Cherry said they were working with a new drug.
I'm thinking of her tonight -- adding Cherry to my list of Cancer Kickers -- please join me in praying in agreement for her for her to be healed.
HAS GOT TO GO!!!
