Today’s treatment was successful and I am still feeling pretty good tonight. Mom had the idea to take along the items needed to give me a pedicure during my treatment. I chose princess pink for my toenails. Mom and I had our own ideas about redeeming the time, but Paul Burton really made it fun because he came to visit us twice on his shift.
Although the Remicade gives me a feeling of being poisoned for a couple of days afterwards, I have to say this treatment has been the easiest by far. I was able to walk out of the hospital at the end of the day. The nurses were pleased to see me looking so well before and after the treatment.
Thank you very much for all of your prayers today. The Lord answered them. His lovingkindness endureth forever!
15 But what can I say?
He has spoken to me, and he himself has done this.
I will walk humbly all my years
because of this anguish of my soul.
16 Lord, by such things men live;
and my spirit finds life in them too.
You restored me to health
and let me live.
17 Surely it was for my benefit
that I suffered such anguish.
In your love you kept me
from the pit of destruction;
you have put all my sins
behind your back.
