Weekend Summary and a Big Decision

We have had a wonderful weekend and I have had minimal side effects. The biggest was the bone pain I have felt from the drug "Neulasta" which they gave me on Friday to boost my white blood cell production. Thankfully, I was warned. So as I felt the pain, I knew it was a GOOD thing and didn't let it get me down.

I tried to rest as much as possible. But there were a few important things we wanted to do. It is important to M3 that I have a wig, once I lose my hair. So we headed to the local mall kiosk to check some out. Even some of the customers chimed in their comments. The best, though, was when I put on a long, blonde wig, at M3's request. After looking in the mirror and coming around the corner, knowing it was NOT the wig for me, M4 took one look at me and said, "You look like HANNAH MONTANA!!" Definitely not the look I was going for.

And it was especially important for me to make it through church on Sunday morning because M2 made his public profession of faith in Jesus Christ, having prayed to become a Christian Thursday night (after my 1st round of chemo). Even in this trying time in our family's life, God continues to show us His GOODNESS!

It was so good sitting behind you in church and seeing how much your children loved you and wanted your comfort. When your M2 made his decision for Christ public, we were truly blessed, and we were rejoicing because of God's goodness and mercy in your time of trials.
Love, Sigrid

Praise God! After my mom (Ginny Erikson) was healed eternally from her breast cancer we found in her Bible notes, after 3 John 4 "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth" she wrote AMEN! M2's public profession is certainly one of the greatest days of your life. I am so happy to hear it. If we don't all get to another Slaughter Family Reunion we will see you at the family reunion and wedding supper of the Lamb!
