I have two things to be over the moon about.
Two unexpected blessings that I can't stop thinking about.
My Dad received his test results back a few days ago, test result that we
were very nervous about. He hasn't been responding to the chemo, and his last results
were the worst they have been in quite a while.
Then suddenly, after his last and more difficult series of chemo, his blood cell counts
are so low that they could almost be considered normal (!!!)
I was so prepared to hear more bad news, and I can't tell you enough how amazing this is.
Now the nature of the cancer is that he will get better, then worse and then better again,
and we've been on this roller coaster of emotions for six years now, so it would be easy
for me not to get my hopes up. But today I am filled with joy from my head to my toes!
So that is absolutely the most exciting thing that has happened lately, but there is also one more thing that has me feeling giddy.
Last Friday I stopped by the Top Stitch to pick up some fabric for the crib bumper I am working on, and got to talking with Carrie, the owner. She ended up offering me a job two days a week and I of course accepted! We still have to work out the details, but I am so excited. This will be a way for me to do something I love, stay home with the baby 5 out of 7 days a week, and I will also have access to training and maybe even discounts on the fabric? This way I can work very part time, and for the rest of the week I can sew to sell on Etsy. I can't wait to start.
So I now have answers to two very desperate prayers which makes me upset with myself for all the stressing and worrying I do. I hope I will remember how safe I am in God's gracious hands!
