Penny had hoped to get another chemo treatment today...but her labs were too low. They are giving her some boosters in hopes things will be different in a few days. If not she may have to get a blood transfusion. Please keep her in your prayers.
Benefit bike ride for Penny went well considering that it drizzled rain and was cold and windy. Glad that a few brave souls came out in support of Penny, it sure put a smile on her face. We do still have some shirts available for sale from the bike ride. You can pick them up at dispatch.
Penny has had a good few days, so happy for her. But, worse days are ahead as she will go for chemo again this week. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, as this always causes her to suffer and be horribly sick.
Had the benefit bike ride for Penny today. Even though we did not have the turnout we had hoped for, it was still a great day. Penny even felt good enough to make and rode in the patrol car that led the ride !!!! She was so determined to be there, I think seeing everyone really did her some good, but she was pretty exhausted by the end and ready to go rest. THANK YOU to all that came out in the chilly, wet weather and supported this event. It really did mean a lot to Penny. I have posted a picture of her with the deputies that were there.
Penny did have chemo last Thursday, which always makes her unbearably sick. This time is no different. She had a very bad day today. Everyone please....send Prayers. She is so physically and emotionally exhausted and still has a long hard fight ahead of her.
I can promise you there is nothing more heartbreaking than watching another human suffer so much. She is in so much pain, she is so weak, and she is so sick to her stomach. She desperately needs some comfort and some rest.
Penny has had a few "better" days, but only a few. She has been terribly sick with nausea and pain, not to mention she is very weak. But, on a better note she did have another MRI last week and they say that the tumors are shrinking some, so she will try chemo a bit longer. Please pray for her as the chemo is extremely potent and reaks havoc on her body, to the point that would be unbearable to most of us. She is definitely a strong person and a fighter !!!!
Penny has opted to discontinue the chemo at this point due to the fact that it has been so rough on her. Prayers and support are much needed.
Penny has had her 2nd chemo treatment last week, and is terribly sick again, and yes, hospitalized again. Please have everyone you know to lift her up in prayer. Miracles DO happen, and she definitely needs one.
I talked to Penny this afternoon, YAY !! She is out of the hospital and feeling much better. She sounded so good and says she is feeling better, just has to be careful and not over do it. She wants everyone to know how very much she appreciates all you have done, she is quite overwhelmed at the out pouring of kindness.
Penny has been hospitalized since Tuesday, Dr. plans to keep her a few days. They are hoping to get her system built back up and to get her pain under control. She has been in excrutiating pain for many days now. Keep Praying and keep sharing....check back for updates.
Penny spent Thursday night in the hospital for help with the pain, she went home late yesterday. She is still in an incredible amount of pain. Please prayer harder than ever that she will get some releif from this unbearable pain. Doctors just are not doing much to control the pain, she is so sick and cannot keep anything down.
Thank you to everyone for your support.
