Lorelei has slept most of today (Saturday, Oct 20.) She skipped breakfast, lunch and dinner but just ate one and a half cookies! She said they were the perfect chemo cookies--Keebler E.L.Fudge originals. They aren't too hard and don't have a strong aroma. Even the fudge is light and mild.
What's even more amazing is how those cookies came to be in this room. Earlier today one of my high school friends (Laura Maggio) messaged me out of the blue. She said she just felt "urged" to do it. She told me the story about how praying for Lorelei has enriched her life and connected her with others who are doing the same. It was just the encouragement I needed at the perfect time. I was feeling lonely and isolated. Then she asked if I needed anything. I was honest. I needed some Diet Dr Pepper. This hospital is the first one we've been in where you have to pay for everything (even parking.) DDP from the vending machine at the end of the hall costs $1.50 for one small bottle! So, Laura brought me some DDP! She also included those cookies because they are her favorites. I think God knew Lorelei needed them. Nobody will ever be able to tell me our Lord is not intimately acquainted and interested in the most minute details of our lives!
