Noah and I are back home and both of us are excited about that. We have had a pretty good week - a long week - and we are realizing that even though Noah doesn't have any physical side effects from the radiation right now, he and I are both having emotional effects from the situation. Like I said, it has been a good week - it could always be worse! - but it's also been a trying week as well. I feel like Thursday will be the hardest day of each week through the rest of Noah's treatment, and Thursday afternoon/evening seems like an eternity, because I know as soon as treatment is over Friday morning we hit the road. But 12 treatments down, 18 to go! Thursday evening I was bummed, tired, and stressed. I looked around the apartment and noticed all the cards and pictures that have been sent to us, and was encouraged. I know we have people praying/interceeding for us from many different parts of the country - I have the letters to prove it! The notes of encouragement you send may only take a few minutes to write and slip into the mailbox, but I will look at them for weeks and remember that my family is loved and covered in prayer, so thank you!
It's hard for me to remember for some reason that I need to write blogs more frequently. I guess in my mind I think, this day is just like any other...nothing new to report. I appreciate those gentle reminders that you who read would like an update. Tomorrow is Noah's birthday party and our family will come over tomorrow evening to celebrate. I'm sure many pictures and videos will be made so I will post them asap, along with a few others from this past week. Hope you have a great weekend, and keep praying for Noah!
