Topic: Decision re: change of chemo
I will be seeing my oncologist tomorrow to discuss whether or not to change from oxaliplatin/xeloda to Folfox/xeloda. I have so many questions & hope she can hear me & advise me of which way to go. I had a ct scan today of my chest for a cough I have been having & hope to get those results tomorrow too. I wrote a poem last week & posted it on another post but will include it here too. It was inspired by my friend who always tells me to JKS!! Bless you all!
JUST KEEP SWIMMING
Jesus is my floatation device
When I face the deep blue sea
It looks so deep, dark & wide
He says, ‘just keep swimming’ with Me.
When I’m on the sea with my floaties on
I am safe and secure in His arms
I could float on the sea forever
I can ‘just keep swimming’ with no alarms.
Sometimes I think I can take them off
I will try to make it on my own
All of a sudden I feel like I’m sinking
I can’t ‘just keep swimming’ alone.
It seems like I would know by now
How easy it would be to go down
Just because of my stubborn pride
I want to ‘just keep swimming’ around.
The good news is I can just reach out
And put them right back on
They are always right by my side
I can ‘just keep swimming’ til dawn.
You may ask why I need this ‘crutch’
Why do I have this shortcoming?
Didn’t Dorie stay with Nemo?
Telling him to ‘just keep swimming‘
There will be storms ahead
The waves will carry me
But if I keep my floaties on
I can ‘just keep swimming’ with glee!
So I will keep my floaties on
My Jesus will swim with me
He gives me peace in the deep
I will ‘just keep swimming’ on this sea.
