On May 24th I will celebrate my 71st birthday with much celebration and joy!
It will be exactly 1 year since I was diagnosed with lung cancer (The day before my birthday) and then four months ago it was the fight of my life with Covid! Today I am still cancer free after my last four month test and getting stronger with each day over the Covid. Last night for the first time in four months I slept in my own bed and today got rid of the rented hospital bed that served me so faithfully.
I am down to 163 pounds and enjoying food is still difficult for me although lately all of my favorite restaurants keep sending me birthday wishes with free desserts!
We celebrate in fullness on Sunday when I get into the car and we drive to WaterBrooks in Vermont for two weeks to see how I do and if I do well we can return this fall.
I am no longer using oxygen during the day for which I am praising God! Now I have to work on not wearing it at night so we can go back to living in Vermont without electricity! Praising God for the healing and restoring of my life in so many details!
The only thing that I am living with as a reminder of the covid-19 is Tylenol every four hours and ongoing fatigue between my MS and Covid but I can not complain in the least but rather marvel at His divine healing in my life!
It’s so hard to believe that it all started a year ago and that I entirety missed my 70th year where I spent the equivalent of half of the year in the hospital. This week is my 71st birthday and I am going to party double ~ celebrating this year and last year and survival and new beginnings!
God is so good, thank you, my dear friends, for interceding to the good Father that I might enjoy this blessing of new beginnings…your faithful prayers made all the difference!!
Thank you, bless you, for traveling the journey with me!
Sue, Deb and Rodney
