First Outpatient Chemo

We went back to the hospital today for outpatient chemo and everything still looks the same so we got to go home once again. The schedule of outpatient chemo at the hospital is as follows: Feb. 6, 8, 9, 12, 15, 19. We get to the hospital in the morning and stayed until late afternoon going through all the stations of blood pressure, weighing, temperature, blood taking, chemo and get new pill prescriptions while they monitor Sarah for a couple of hours after the chemo is given. It was an exhausting day on many levels. Thanks to all of you that are continuing to follow up on us and continue to send godly encouragement both practical and emotional. When I am tempted to doubt or tempted to despair or just tempted to general gloom and weakness, all of you that have so steadily upheld us remind me that God is here, present in the works of his people. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to our family who desperately needs it.
This is a picture of Sarah in her 'new room'. She was sad to be separated from her sister, but it was best to put her in a room of her own. And thanks to a family in our church, this was made possible when they purchased a new bed for Sarah and the most comfortable mattress she has ever had! And thanks to one of the mom's in our homeschool group, Sarah has hot pink curtains and fuzzy pillows to match! This made Sarah so happy, and now she is enjoying being the big sister with a whole room of her own.

Lifting you all up... God is talking to YOU ALLL:

"Come to Me, Clark family. I know you are weary and burdened. I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart. You, Clark family, will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and my burden is light." paraphrase from Matt. 11:28-30

This is easier said than done. Praying this for you all. xxxxxxx
