I haven’t blogged recently about how my treatment is going so I thought I would give a quick update.

I’m currently in the fourth month of my chemo injections.

Quite honestly, my body doesn’t want to do the injections or feel weak and sick. My body doesn’t want to have a needle stuck in it three times a week.

I get really anxious thinking about doing chemo three times a week. It’s discouraging because I’m fully aware of how much longer I have to go on my treatment and I’m fully aware of how slowly time seems to be moving.

I haven’t been feeling the best lately. I’m not able to get a good night’s rest because I’m up for hours at a time during the night and that makes my side effects even worse for the next day. The days after my injections are so awful and the change in weather hasn’t been pleasant and has caused so many more body aches and headaches. All of this has made schoolwork that much harder to do. Thinking about doing these chemo injections three times this week on top of already feeling sick really sucks. I’m certain that I currently have a touch of the flu but it’s hard to be sure on top of the chemotherapy symptoms.

I would appreciate any prayers you could send up for me.

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:14


I remember being so sick and tired and being so discouraged of only being in month 4 of 12 of chemo. After writing this blog, my mom ended up taking me to the hospital because I was so unwell, where I was pumped with antibiotics and fluid, and I remember how mad I was that I still had to do chemo that day on top of already feeling awful. I wanted to give up at that moment and be done with all of it – but I didn’t and I’m so proud.

  1. Hang in there love. Both Georgia and I have had a sucky few days too. I realize it’s nothing compared to what you’re going through but sometimes we all just have days that we want to be over. I’m not overly impressed with the weather and I think I’ll borrow your license to complain! Lol Acknowlodge your weakness but stay strong. Understand your unhappiness while raising your joy. Surrender to your bad moment but fight for your life! You’re worth every effort 🙂 we love you sweetheart!!!


  2. I pray for you eveynight Mikayla as well as you are included in my rosary. God love you for all your determination and perseverance.


  3. You are always in my prayers. You have every right to complain. I a, not sure I could be as strong as you. When I want to complain about my aches and pains (as I get older) I think of what you are going through and I quit. My mom passed with cancer at 38 and my sister at 39. I am very grateful to be 61 (tell your mom to quit laughing she will get there one day). Keep on plugging and fighting I know you are strong enough to make it happen


  4. Thank you for sharing with us that you aren’t feeling good. I wish I could lift this from you and take a few of the sick days for you. I will continue to pray. This is the verse that popped into my head; it’s the one that I go to over and over again. I hope that it will provide you with some comfort.

    Proverbs 5 &6 reads like this:
    5Trust in the lord with all your heart;do not depend on your own understanding.
    6Seek his will in all you do,and he will show you which path to take.
