"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:16.
So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know many people are wondering how it is for a woman to lose her hair and shave her head because she has no choice. I can say with complete honesty that this task was not hard or difficult for me at all. I am confident of who I am in the Lord and I know my husband loves me regardless. Because of these two things, along with such a supportive network of family and friends, I was not phased by it at all. I have been reading through the Psalms each morning and write down so many of the promises the Lord has given us. I cling to these and know that I am okay.
"As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him...It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect." Psalms 18:30 &32.
After leaving the hospital we were able to go by the wig place and get fitted for a wig. We ended up ordering something completely different than any of the ones posted last time. The lady had me try on a child size wig, and it fit me much better than any of the adult wigs. I don't think I will wear the wig much...I feel much more like myself in a scarf, hat, or just bald than with a wig. However, we ordered one just in case there is a point I think I need it.
Round 2 of Chemo
I love His word...it never fails to encourage me and give me hope. Yesterday was round #2 of chemo...and everything went well. We actually were finished much faster than we anticipated, so that was nice. We were only at the hospital for 2 hours this time.
Round 2 of Chemo
When we left the wig place I told Brady that I needed some more scarves and maternity clothes. So we headed to Burlington Coat Factory...he just loved this (Brady hates shopping). We found some scarves and I found clothes to try on. I was wearing a scarf, but took it off to try on all the clothes. I sent Brady out to get different sizes in a couple of things...but he came back empty handed saying there were no more. I knew there were more and that he had just not looked in the right place. So I ventured out for the first time in public with my bald head trying to find the right size. I'm not sure if I drew any eyes, but I'm sure for strangers this was a sight to see...a bald pregnant woman walking through the store. From there we went home and were provided a most delicious meal from a friend here.
We have been so blessed by so many people that all I can do is praise my Father in heaven. Please continue to lift our family up and especially our precious little one, Chloe Grace. We decided on a name, and it has been so fun to talk to her daily and call her by name. We knew from the beginning that if we had a girl that we wanted Grace in her name because of the situation. Chloe is a name we both like and we really liked the way they sounded together.
I'm hoping that I continue to feel well and will be able to make my 10 year reunion this weekend. I will leave you with one last Psalm that has spoken to my heart. Thanks again!
"I will extol the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; there faces are never covered with shame." Psalms 34:1-5
