We are nearing the half-way point! We have $5,455 left to raise for this next round. Please consider helping us continue to ask for support by sharing our blog on your Facebook page, emailing it to your contact list, or posting our story wherever you feel comfortable in doing so: http://chelsawojo.blogspot.com Also, if you have any suggestions for us in continuing to raise funds, or if you would just like to send us some encouragement, you can email us at email@example.com.
This past weekend was a rough one -- Chelsa has been feeling nauseous, having a lot of trouble with digestion and appetite, still having nosebleeds, and had little energy. I have found myself with a lot of anxiety, not sleeping well, frustrated that I can't help her, worried about whether we are doing the right things, and stressed about some upcoming decisions. Chelsa is scheduled to have 14 viles of blood drawn this Friday, but we're worried about whether she can spare it and what it would mean for her already crummy health.
We have a trip scheduled to visit family in Michigan and attend a good friend's wedding in Chicago in two weeks. We are both very excited and nervous about how Chelsa's health and energy will be by then. So please keep us in your prayers -- we would really appreciate prayers specifically for Chelsa's energy, stomach, nose, and battle with the Multiple Myeloma, for our trip, for Matt's anxiety and attitude, for financial provision, and for Chelsa's doctors (Dr. Kaplan, Dr. Angove, Dr. Catanzaro, and Dr. Syko) to have wisdom and guidance in their prescriptions, treatments, and research.
Thank you again for your love and support. We are so very thankful.
*Here is a photo of us with Seattle's new 200ft high Ferris Wheel. Apparently the enclosed gondolas have glass bottom floors that extend 40ft over the Puget Sound and have heating/air conditioning... seems a little fancy. I prefer the open-air ferris wheels thrown up in a mall parking lot by carnies over a long weekend myself -- a little rattle in the rotation adds just as much thrill. Chelsa seems pretty excited about this new one however in case anyone wants to join her for a ride.
