I know I shouldn't be anxious because I can cast my anxiety on the Lord, but sometimes even though my head is fine, my physical body doesn't seem to get the message.

Here's the rundown:
-My girls and husband are taking off tomorrow for a multi-state drive to arrive in our new hometown.  I am not well enough to log all those hours in the car (2-3 days) so I will be flying in a few days on my birthday.   We originally planned on me taking our 9 month old on the plane too, but my body has deteriorated so much in the last two weeks that I can't even hold her for more than a few minutes.

-I'm in a treatment week so it will still be tough to fly.  I fly out on January 6th (Happy Birthday to me)

So please pray for safe travels for all and that we'd quickly get settled in our new state.


  1. Dear Heather....I just want you to know that you, Matt, and the girls are in my daily prayers. I cannot imagine what it is like to feel the way you feel...I think you are a very brave and patient person. I pray that your move goes as smoothly as it possibly can and that your travels on the airplane are at the the very least tolerable...:-)

  2. I'm so sorry.

    I'll definitely keep you in my prayers.

  3. You are a brave woman, Heather--I really admire you for doing this. Good luck with the journey--I wish you quick and safe travels, and lots of love. You can do it! :)

  4. One more thing: I was just talking to my husband about your story. We were remembering what life was like a few months into treatment (OMG so awful), and we both have the greatest respect for you. There's no way I could have done what you're doing now--I know how terrible you feel physically--and it's quite a miracle that you have it in you to make this trip. So inspiring.
