Phoebe had a good day with her Daddy and her Grammy is staying tonight. She received her last chemotherapy infusion today and is tired, but happy. We are all wary of her sleepiness of course, since that was the first indicator last time that something was going awry, but she is still very awake and interactive when she wakes up and that is a good sign.She is now receiving a special breathing treatment that forces air into her lungs in an effort to expand her lungs more. She has it twice a day and it isn’t her favorite. She is also sleeping tonight with a bi-pap machine in hopes that the extra help with breathing will help her rest enough to be stronger. No one is quite sure why her muscles are so weak, and one of the theories is that she is worn out from the very effort of breathing and trying to adequately oxygenate her body. We’ll see.
The difficult part of the chemo cycle is coming up and we appreciate all of your prayers. I praise God tonight that her sodium levels have been so beautiful in spite of all the extra fluids these past few days with her chemotherapy. Those perfect levels are a good indicator that she will get to come home with us at the beginning of next week if she is otherwise doing well!
I hope you all have a wonderful Good Friday and resurrection weekend,
so glad to hear that things are not quite as rough as the last treatment. Will keep praying for positive results and continued improvements. May God’s glory shine through the process of going through all this with healing and the showing and living of your faith in Him. Your children are blessed to have God following faithful parents such as you. It is hard to see your child hurt and in pain but know that as this Easter season surrounds us that God our Father watched His son hurt and in pain and what wonderful blessings we have because of it.
That was beautifully written.
What a sweet, sweet girl! 🙂 Covering you in the blood of our precious Jesus. Praying and praying for Phoebe. I will spend extra time praying.
Blessed Good Friday
Good, continuing on in prayer!
Good deal! He is risen and the Fair’s are making him known.
Oh, I think she looks like her Grammy! How wonderful. 🙂 Continuing to pray fervently for sweet Phoebe. Thanks for keeping us all so informed.
Thank you Amey for your daily postings. I love the pictures of Phoebe. She looks so sweet and precious. I pray daily for Phoebe and her family.
Praying for you guys. After Bob’s mom had cancer surgery, she experienced the just-too-tired-to-move thing. It was scary. It ended up being a medication she was on that she didn’t need. Blood pressure regulator. Phoebe Girl’s situation may work itself out just like that. But we’re praying for your doctors just like we’re praying for you!
Christ is Risen. Indeed. And that makes all the difference, doesn’t it.
Amazing news!! God is good! So proud of Phoebe being so strong through this. I’ll be keeping her in my prayers.
God is love,
