Hunger on the rise... mindgames

This morning I was able to get up, make myself a bowl of oatmeal and eat most of it. (As well as some Apple juice) This is the most I have eaten at one time in a while. It no longer hurts as much as it used to, and I'll be diving into lunch here in a bit. Continue to pray my hunger will increase and that I'll be able to gain and keep some weight on this week.

In other news it's kind of hard feeling better now. Lisa and I are planning on going on a little mini-vacation this weekend and then after that the Chemo starts again, and then my feeling well will take a dive again. Honestly it's hard, really hard, to think that I'm going to go in for treatment next Tuesday and then have to go through this cycle again. I am praying that next time around it'll be a little easier and I'll have a better idea about how to take care of my body.

Thanks again for all your prayers. All your support has been wonderful as well. Please don't stop writing emails and sharing bible verses.

    I am joining you in your prayer that next time around won't be so rough. May God give you and Lisa a joyous weekend - with times when you truly forget your situation and just laugh out loud and enjoy each other.

    Dear Ben, I'm glad to read that you are feeling better. The Lund crew was sick this weekend and unable to come by and see you. I miss you a lot though and would love to come by and say HI and tell you about all the ways we miss you and need you back on the job at Taproot. I'm so glad that you and Lisa are getting away this weekend. Are you going to the Sandcastle? We are thinking of you and praying every day. People all over the country have you on their minds and hearts. You are loved. Feel better. Big Love, Karen
