Friday. Well, here it is, the end of the week….! At the beginning of this week, I was admittedly uncertain how Rob’s chemo would go with him as an outpatient. However, now that we’ve gone through several days, it’s clear that even if there are problems or issues, there is a lot of support available. Tuesday was a “lost day” for Rob. He doesn’t remember much of it at all! Then, Wednesday was a difficult gastro day. But, on Thursday Rob received hydration and anti-nausea meds, and balance was restored. Today was a good day, overall. Thanks to the Lord for this encouraging day!
Tonight we walked along 5th Avenue, which was all lit-up and festive for Christmas. We were among a crowd of folks who were meandering along, enjoying the decorations. We ended up at Rockefeller Center where the ice skaters were skating beneath the beautifully-lit Christmas tree and the walkway was lined with angels blowing their trumpets. Rob took pictures all along the journey. It was quite cold, but we were well bundled up. There is an energy and electricity in New York City, especially at Christmas-time.
We find ourselves here under circumstances that are difficult at best. But, we are continually thankful for the opportunity to get Rob’s treatment underway here with Dr. Rosen. New York is huge and, for sure, there are adjustments to be made, like having no car and walking to and from the grocery store, but it is an amazing city. There is so much to be thankful for — Ephesians 5:20 – “always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.”
