Today we head off to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Global City for the second phase of the treatment which is the Radioactive Iodine Therapy. She was diagnosed with papillary carcinoma last October and had her surgery last November to remove the whole thyroid. Now we’re on Round  2.  Though I know that all shall be well, the mom in me still cannot help but worry. The only thing that’s keeping me in my place right now is the thought that although life has been tough on us the past two years, God has been more than kind to us in a lot of ways too. And so as we face this big challenge, I know that like always, His love will sustain our spirits and will strengthen us.
day 1.1
She is so funny, she doesn’t want to use the wheelchair but she wants to ride in this. She half won the battle already with her wit and humor. I hope and pray that her happy disposition stays with her till the end of her treatment. She’s a ray of sunshine in an otherwise gloomy and stressful situation.
All shall be well. I trust. I pray. I believe. I claim. 🙂
