Soooooooo Tired

This is Kristin typing up a blog post for Dad. He called me this afternoon and dictated a post since he is not up to getting on the computer.

From Dad:

It's another day and I'm so very tired. It is a great effort to get off of the couch or do much of anything. I believe this is being caused by the Avastin chemo treatment. It's very difficult to just get to the table and it takes a great amount of effort to eat any sort of food. I need to keep at it though, so I can put on weight. As soon as I'm done eating I can't wait to get back to the couch.

We are continuing to trust in the Lord to give us strength. "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:29-31

It takes a lot of patience to deal with that level of exhaustion and lack of an appetite. I'm praying and sending lots of love in Christ.

Pastor joel, you have a great support team especially in Mrs MacDonald and your daughter Kristin. Just remember in every battle there are ups and downs. You are continuously in my prayers. I also pray for Mrs MacDonald and Kristin who is so far in distance but so close in her heart. She seems to be the one to take on the leader role when you are unable. God bless her and her family.
