Thursday night 6-22-06 update from Nancy
I want to thank you for your prayers yesterday. I went with Jenni to the oral surgeon to get the 2 hurting teeth pulled. I talked with him for a while and he eventually agreed that it would be a good idea to get them out before chemo starts. It took a while to get me numb enough, but eventually I did. I am on strong antibiotics and a special medicated rinse for the week. The good news is that there isn't much swelling at all yet (he said there may be tomorrow), and the one tooth didn't penetrate my sinus cavity. He thought it probably would, so we were happy when it didn't.
I stayed in bed today nauseous and very headachy, but finally was able to eat and keep my dinner down tonight. I hardly noticed my sore side today at all! Tomorrow is set aside for getting ready for the mountains and on Saturday we leave. Thank you for praying for me and us! We will get back on July 1st, so I don't plan to be writing again before I leave unless something comes up.
Josh, Allison's boyfriend, is here and we are enjoying getting to know him. He is 6'4" and helped her make some great cookies today.
I have talked to the "wig lady" and we will be able to connect in time to get what I need before I loose my hair. God is very good. Several friends and my girls are planning to go with me.
God bless you mightily!
