The good and the bad of it.

Great weekend!
Today: clinic day, long day, sick day, pain day, scary day, too exhausted to think, going to bed.
Please pray:
for side effects to subside,
for a peaceful and restful night,
Elizabeth spirit to return,
for the newly diagnosed on A5 South,
God's will to always be present in our hearts.
God bless ~ Christine

Don't lose heart. Hold tight to your inner strength. You, girlfriend, are stronger than your body. Know it and believe it. Know that no matter how senseless all this seems right now that a stronger Liz is emerging. I believe in you. I believe you can overcome the suffering from these awful yet wonderful chemo drugs. One hour at a time. One day at a time. Keep your eye on the prize. Focus on the day when you'll be out on the volleyball court again and stronger than anyone else! Stronger where it counts! Believe!
Love and prayers,
Mrs. D.

I'm not sure what words of encouragement to give you all, but hope this helps...You don't know me, though we have met through sports. I want to let you know that even though I don't leave comments here, I check this blog and pray for Liz and you all daily. And I know there are many, many more that don't post but do the same.
So, keep fighting, knowing that lots of acquaintances, even total strangers, are in your corner, praying for health in body and spirit!
With much admiration,
Jamie DeMumbrum

A poem I came across that I knew you would appreciate:


Cancer I did not give you the right,
To invade my body and take a bite.
This is my body and with all my might,
I will prevail with one hell of a fight.
To the cancer inside, I will battle and kill.
For that is my body's God given will.
To my cancer, these words I do send.
Your life is short and near the end.

Thinking and praying for you.
