Grace in this place

I am still in the hospital.
My WBC fell low yesterday but I am getting rest and care everyday (GRACE) and hope to go home tomorrow.
My oncologist decided not to give me a shot that would boost the white cells after my first chemo. That was a mistake, and now I will receive the shot after each of the five remaining.
Thank you for praying...please continue.
~Blessings & love~ Lisa

UPDATE

My counts are normal and there are no infections anywhere, but because I had a slight temperature last night, I have to stay one more night. Doc says I have to have a normal temperature for 24 hours before they let me go home.
Thanks for all your prayers!
Jeff says Buddy has been sleeping on my pillow in bed next to him every night.

  4. Hi Lisa,
    I have been away from the computer but I have been praying for you as Father has led. Praying that your WBC comes up where it needs to be and that while you are in the hospital you will find rest, peace and love.

    Standing with you friend, covering you often. :)

  13. Hi Lisa, it is good to hear your update, it sounds as if you are getting good medical care from your doctor and hospital. It won't be long and you will be sleeping in your own bed. I am keeping you in my prayers. Thank you for sharing and being so honest about your feelings.Being honest in the face of illness is a priceless gift to give to family and friends. It is true that sometimes there may be fear in people's eyes, but those same eyes are also at the same time seeing: courage and faith under trial, and so many other things by how you are choosing to live through this experience. Your endurance in the face of illness, may be used to witness to the hearts of others about God's love in ways you may never imagine, and all you have to do is just be yourself. So many of us have had our own lives or those of our loved ones touched by cancer, so always remember that you are loved and not alone. And I so appreciate your decision to keep communicating. With Love, Delisa
