Return of the platelets!!

My platelets jumped from 75 to 185 over the last week! So, I started chemo round 7 today and will finish on Wednesday. It seemed kind of weird this week to pray for platelets and to pray to be able to have chemo - in essence praying that I would be able to be sick all week! But, it feels really good to know that after this week I only have one more treatment to go!! Thank you so much for praying with me.

All the usual side effects are back. The doctor said that my equilibrium issues are most likely due to one of my chemo drugs. He told me to be careful of policemen and to make sure that they give me a breath test if they stop me! LOL! Don't worry, it doesn't really effect my driving!

Just wanted to give you a quick update! I'm off to sleep it off! Good night!


  1. Yep, never thought I would be praying for you to GET chemo...yuck! Oh the end of this cancer treatment black tunnel is soooo close!

  2. Thank the Lord for answered go Girl....the miracle working powers of Jesus is upon you!! You will soon be showing the world that Jesus is still in the miracle business and you will be that shining example!!
    Love hugs and prayers

  3. I just want to tell you that I heard of your story and I pray for you and We as my family know your struggle. My son Asthon who is 3 is fighting leukemia. Him too, has had to wait the months to do he's round of chemo. Its funny but his dad and i would pray and pray and my grandmother who is our prayer worrior, for his platlests and white blood cells to come back up to do chemo. Because then it would mean the closer we are to ending that round and back in the ring for another. So glad to hear god is with you and fighting it too!

  4. WOW what a jump in count!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Praise GOD !!!!
    One more to go! WOW WoW WOW Wow WoW!!!!!
    You can do it!!! God has you in His hands!
    Rest rest rest!

  5. Praise God for that dramatic increase in platelets! So glad you were able to get your treatment this week! I'll be praying that your platelets are perfect for your next scheduled treatment, so you can get this over with! Thanks for sharing your journey with us, Laura. I love your honesty, and how you always turn to God, no matter how you're feeling. God bless you, Laura!

  6. Praise God from whom all good things come. I love you, Marilyn

  7. Reading this morning, and believe GOD wanted me to send you this scripture NOW: "My flesh and my heart faileth: BUT GOD - IS - (present tense) the Strength of "my" heart, and "my" portion forever! For...they that are far from Thee shall perish...BUT it is Good for "me" to draw near to YOU GOD, "I" have put "my" Trust in YOU LORD GOD, that I may declare all YOUR - wonderous - works!" Ps. 73:26-28
    We love you, Princess Warrior, & continue to believe & pray for "you". (Heb.7:24-25)
