Bending but not breaking...

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Wow, has then ever been a tough year! I got some not so great news about my Dad yesterday and it has thrown me for a loop. He has been battling liver cancer and been doing chemo treatments since last December. Yesterday, his cancer doctor said that he can continue the chemo, but that he didn't think that it would continue to shrink the tumors any more and that it would eventually stop working altogether. He is unable to have them removed surgically because of other health issues...COPD, heart problems.... It's so hard to know that he has fought so hard and now there isn't much more they can do. I do know that God is in control and has a plan for our good in all things. Even when we can't see or understand what that plan could be. I am putting my trust in the Lord.

My morning sugar readings have went from the 200s to anywhere between 105 and 140. I am very pleased with those numbers and continue to work on my eating to improve them. Exercise has been pretty good, also. I just need to keeps pushing forward.

God Bless!

    A few years ago my mother had some pains in her abdomen, after a few weeks it was determined to be cancer. I know how you feel. Just take in every moment with your Dad.

    I am happy that your sugar levels are better. However, I am so very sorry about the health of your father. emoticon
