So last week officially sucked. Chemo everyday and feeling like I had the flu all week, that was definitely a blast! Although, I still wouldn't change anything one bit. God put me in this situation for a reason, and so far it has been a great. So many people helping and supporting me, it is inspiring and unbelievable. Well my family and I made a trip to Santa Barbara, I got another lumbar puncture and I ended up having to get a blood transfusion due to low hemoglobin. So that took up the rest of my day yesterday. As I sat in the hospital with all the other adults getting transfusions, I thought to myself as I studied each of them "What are their stories? What is God's plan for them? Where is their family or support group?" then I looked over at my parents and remembered how grateful I am to have them and everyone else supporting me all the time. I usually don't remember waking up after my procedures are finished. Although I do remember waking up yesterday and hearing the cry of a young child. Yet again the same questions ran through my mind. While I waited to fully recover from the anesthesia I met the young child who was crying. She was almost three years old with these beautiful big brown eyes. She too had A.L.L leukemia and was in maintenance stage. This baby didn't know what was going on, every time she was visiting the hospital or getting poked to get labs done. All she knew or could say about her situation was "I'm sick". It made me thankful to at least be aware of my situation and to know and comprehend everything. I sat there inspired and amazed thinking "If this baby can get through all of this, I definitely can too."
God made you on purpose for a purpose.
