Kristen needed blood and of course it's the 4th of July weekend so we ended up here in the hospital. As it turned out she also needed platelets. Kristen continues to have a fever so she is receiving another dose of antibiotics. The doctor came in to see her and was asking about her pain level. I really think that for the most part she has been comfortable. It is hard to tell the difference between pain and just not feeling good. Leukemia causes bone pain so the doc was concerned that maybe she is having pain. He ordered a huge bottle of pain medication for us to take home. I am not too thrilled as this is just another reminder of what is now before me. I try not to think about that. But it's hard not to. I am still trying to soak in every moment. Even though we have spent this entire day here in the hospital it still goes down as a fun filled Saturday.
I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!
