Hi Gary, here is the update for Hilda today. Dear Friends and Family,
Hilda is weakened by all that has happened to her. She is able to take some physical therapy. The hospital has her getting out of bed, standing and doing some Occupational Therapy such as brushing her teeth, combing hair. All with the intention of being strengthened enough to be able to do these things upon returning home.
The first round of chemo was done a few days ago, Hilda took the Chemo well and didn’t suffer any real side effects. This is an answer to prayer, thank you Lord!
The next step is to be released from the hospital and placed in a skilled nursing facility to continue to rehabilitate and gain strength. Logistics take time to coordinate.
As for me, yes I am tired and feel a bit physically beat up, sometimes, when I look too far ahead or lose focus on today’s steps I am reminded not to say and or try to do too much. Some people I hear from say they are feeling helpless, and that all they can do is pray. Well prayer is everything in this case. Prayer for the sick: James 5:14-15 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. Her as is the case here.
Many of you have inquired how you can help. I have some ideas and will contact you as the need arises.
