I'm drained...Family update

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. Sorry I've taken so long to update what's been going on. Life has handed me a lot lately.

 

Here are some updates on my family situations that so many of you have been very supportive of:

 

FFIL: FI's dad went through 6 chemo treatments in 5 days to fight the leukemia. He did very well and only reacted to one treatment--something called "Blue Thunder" that looked like dark blue ink. Scary. It's been about a week since his last treatment and he is doing pretty well. He actually has not lost any hair (yay, something positive!) and he's been dealing with a constant sore throat. He had a fever of 102 a few nights ago which can be pretty dangerous when you pretty much have no immune system. He had a reaction to the meds they gave him for it (something he'll have to take again, so now they have to give him something to counter that before he takes it), but that's really been the worst of it. I was at the hospital on Monday and he's in pretty good spirits.

What to pray for: That the chemo will put him into remission. If it does not, that his sister's bone marrow will match his.

 

FI's cousin: Alice will be going through her 3rd round of chemo for breast cancer today. (For those interested in more info on Alice, check out my siggy.) Her first two rounds went very well and her numbers have been up! Her parents flew out to California to help her out for the rest of the week since the chemo makes her really sick and weak.

What to pray for: That this round of chemo and the 4th (last) one will put her into remission. Also, that her foundation's third event at the end of the month will be successful.

 

New info: Yesterday, FI and I closed on our condo--something I haven't even had a chance to mention on this forum. A few hours later, I received a call from my mom that they're putting my grandmother (Nana) on Hospice.

What to pray for: Strength for my mom. Also for Nana to go quickly. She's so unhappy and uncomfortable and she says she's ready to see Papa again (my grandfather passed away 28 years ago). That's so hard to even say.

 

It just doesn't end. I feel like we're getting slammed with everything under the sun right now. I know I've been asking for a lot of prayers lately, but if nobody minds, I'm going to ask for more. I feel like my plate is just so full, I really can't handle anything else.

 

Thank you for listening and for all of the support you have given me. I will continue to update you all as things unfold.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
