Hi friends. This is Jenna (Janet's daughter-in-law) writing on Janet's behalf.
We are asking for major prayers for Janet. She just told me that she literally "feels like her body is going through major starvation". Nothing sounds good. She has been battling with nausea and feels like her body is withering away to nothing. She has lost quite a bit of weight and needs to be able to eat for her body to keep fighting the cancer.
We aren't sure what is causing the nausea, but nothing is really helping with relieving it. It's possible that it is the clinical trial pill, which is very important that she keeps taking. She has also been very tired and only gets relief when she is asleep.
Today was her 5th radiation treatment. She is doing great with it and is already seeing improvement with her pain in her hip and in her neck. That is a huge praise!
So those are the "details".
But I am pleading with you on Janet's (and our family's) behalf to cover her in prayers. She has had a very very rough time the past two weeks.
I'd love to give you a list of specific things to pray for...
-Pray that Janet's nausea will subside and that she will be able to eat and GAIN weight.
-Pray for her emotionally as this has been so draining on her.
-Pray for her to have an increase in energy.
-Pray for Tony as he is helping her through these tough days.
-Pray for Bryan and Jordan and their families.
-Pray for Janet's doctors.
We appreciate all of your prayers more than you know and I will try my best to keep you all posted. We are so blessed to have the enormous support system that we have.
"This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
