It’s been a few days now since I’ve come home from the hospital. Recovery from laparascopic versus full surgery has been so different. I’ve had much less pain and already yesterday took an excursion with a friend to go hunting for packing boxes. I’m only on ibuprofen at this point. I’m actually the most uncomfortable when I try to go to sleep, finding a comfortable position is difficult. I’m thinking about trying to sleep in a more upright position on my couch tonight.
My appointment for next week is scheduled for Wednesday at 11:45. I hope to get packed up and moved out by the end of next week. Packing up of the apartment is going really well. A fair amount was done before surgery and Anna has been trying to do a few boxes every night. At this point she’s thinking of heading back to Chicago on Friday night.
I already have an appointment scheduled for the chemo center in Warren for April 4. I don’t think I’ll start chemo that day, it will mostly be a meet and greet with the doctors. I still don’t have much information as far as what chemo will look like this time around, and am not sure when that will start.
I still feel a strong sense of peace about this whole thing. I’m hoping the doctors can decide on a chemo regimen that they feel confident about. But I also I covet prayers that I know are going up for me every day. I have so much confidence in the power of prayer, more confidence in that than the power of chemo. It’s been interesting to observe different types of prayers from different groups of people. I encourage everyone to continue pray BOLDLY (Ephesians 4:12, Hebrews 4:16). Don’t put God in a box, don’t expect him to work only in the ways you see as possibilities. Expect him to work in extraordinary, mysterious, miraculous ways. I’m not just saying this for what you pray for me. Make it a practice. He wants to do extraordinary things in and through you if you just open yourself up to the possibilities.
