So today was short! EKG, blood test, radiation. (I made them take out my IV it's so uncomfortable I'm just going to endure a prick tomorrow- but the look on Diane's face was PRICELESS when I made her floss my teeth last night)
I was a little frustrated this morning because my dizziness and some pain came back, but it's impossible after meeting the amazing people here to feel sorry for myself. Even though I'm struggling with the hair situation.
I've met some amazing people. Just this morning I met Lexi, she was diagnosed at age 3 with absolutely no hope (very severe diagnoses). Today she is 17 just like me, but in worse circumstances, yet still one of the happiest people I've ever met. Halo cast and more (I am choosing not to go into detail on this one). She told me people judge her when they look at her (you can tell), and she's the most confident person in the world. She's beautiful.
I love smoothies, so today I got a strawberry one! I was overjoyed.
Anyways, we went shopping again at the grocery store. Then went back to the Ronald McDonald house!
I prefer to think of this more as a vacation rather than home, but I like it here.
I had a seminary pizza party tonight! It was so fun. We had Korean Popsicle's!
Now I'm back at the Ronald McDonald house ready to take my pills which we are cutting the dose on at midnight. I'm nervous!
I know what I'm going through is difficult, but I've come to realize, EVERYONE has it hard. Like in the talk I posted yesterday, "No one is exempt" We are all going through trials every day. We are all in different circumstances, but we need to know God loves us and is EXTREMELY aware of what we're going through. After all, he's experienced everything we have. I'm still Rachel. I still want to hear about you guys! I care so much.
Sometimes I wish you guys could walk a day in my shoes, just to see, the way I've been able to, how God has his hand in everything. Life is so wonderful. Never take a minute for granted. We are all struggling, but we can push each other through.
