"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
Tammy is doing okay today. She's starting to feel the effects of the chemo, which is expected.
She's now on a neutropenic diet, with the restrictions that go with it. This means she must avoid anything growing (plants, herbs, etc.). She can still have visitors, but they're going to be much more careful with who they allow in. If you've had a cough or a cold or anything like that in the past couple of weeks, stay away. If you've been around small children or someone with the symptoms above, stay away. It's not that she doesn't want to see you; her immune system is being depleted and she is at a much higher risk of picking up something.
If you "qualify," you can come to visit her. We ask that you call her first (913-908-4795) to make sure she's up to it. She welcomes cards (use our home address: 6926 Eby Ave, Merriam, KS 66204) or emails (TammySmale@gmail.com) or Facebook messages.
I'm sorry to be so abrupt, but I'm sure you understand how we need to protect her. The best thing you can possibly do is to pray for her. We appreciate the prayers being lifted up on her behalf.
