Ever had something you’re dreading and get all worked up because it’s taken up full residence in your head? That was Ava’s day. She was so anxious and worried about her first chemo treatment she couldn’t eat or get out bed for most of the day. Around 5 she asked me to please make sure the nurses didn’t tell her when they infused the meds bc she was sure her head would make the side effects worse. I was annoyed it had taken so long and frustrated we were still waiting.
Of course I should have just trusted in God and known He had a plan. Shortly before the infusion was set to finally begin my team arrived with Ko and Ellie. They delivered snacks and a care package from another friend. This got her distracted enough to eat a little, but she was definitely still down and holding stuff in. Once Big Brother Trevor walked in it was like everything was in place and though it was time for the infusion she came alive. She had her treatment, ate dinner, bickered with her sibs, shopped some Prime deals, and went for a walk.
So while I was griping about the wait God was putting everything in place for a near perfect chemo treatment. She’s now passed out and hopefully having sweet dreams.
Moral for today… always trust in Him. His timing is far better than ours. P.S. I’m going to need y’all to remind me of this repeatedly as we take this journey.
