When the going gets tough the tough get going. That’s the difference between doing something when it’s convenient versus real commitment. Doesn’t mean you don’t shed some tears, talk through things with family and friends who rally around you when you need it.
But you never ever quit.

On Friday morning I woke up with severe pain. Probably some of the worst pain I’ve been in during my journey. To control this new pain I was put on a PCA pump. The doctors ordered a CT scan of my abdomen to find out why my pain increased. Once the new pain medications started to work, a special visitor came! @emilia.c.thomas and her mom came to see us! While Emi was here @mgundie and @aaavalonnn FaceTimed us! At 3 my dad and sister came for the afternoon and dinner! It has been so hard with them at home and me and my mom here. We are so thankful for the time that we get together! I am so grateful for the friends and family I have supporting me! I couldn’t do it without them! At 8:30 I was taken down to CT. In the CT I was given a contrast through my IV. This did not make me nauseous, but it did cause heat flashes. We are hoping that the CT scans don’t should any new swelling in my large intestine. When I got back from CT my nurse, Annette, hung the TPN. I’m finally getting the nutrition and calories I need and we are hoping my weight stops decreasing. It was a busy day! •~•
These last few days have been very difficult. The pain and nausea have increased significantly and I am exhausted mentally and physically. However, spiritually, I am only growing stronger and stronger. God continually teaches me new things everyday through the trials that I am going through. Throughout my journey I have learned that it is okay to turn to the Lord in times of struggle. When I am in pain, praying to God for relief is okay. I like to turn on worship music and pray aloud. I have learned that it is not selfish to ask God for help. He cares for us, we are His children and He wants us to know that it is okay to cry out to Him. Philippians 4:6-7 reads, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus”. •~•
