As of last night, I finished my last IV antibiotic for the month of March. This means I am at the halfway mark for the IV antibiotic phase of my treatment…4 months down and 4 more to go! Thank you, Jesus!!
Although I still have to take an anti-malarial for the next four days, I will actually be off IV antibiotics until April 1 when I will go back down and get tested for my next round. Please pray for safe travels down and that I will tolerate the test dose.
The Month 5 antibiotic can cause some pretty potent side effects. So please pray that once I begin Month 5 treatment on April 7, I will be focused on the end result and not live in the day-to-day effects that it might give me. I need God’s strength to get through the hardest phase of my treatment protocol.
Holding on to hope!!
