Not a whole lot has changed today. Janet spent the day resting, she still had some pain and nausea, and her throat is still on fire. Bryan and I went up to the hospital around 4:30 and at that point Janet had only had a little sherbet all day. Tony left to go home and shower and brought her a milk shake that she drank a little part of.
Bryan had been researching all of the different meds they were trying on her and encouraged her to take her "Magic Mouthwash" which is supposed to numb your throat to help with swallowing. She really really doesn't like the magic mouthwash and said she would try it to get some soup down if all of us did too so we would know how bad it was.
Bryan loves his momma and gulped it down without a concern... then spent the next five minutes freaking out and trying to get me to look at the back of his throat and at his epiglottis because they were numb. Janet (and the rest of us) got a good laugh out of him being so dramatic and it encouraged Janet to try some soup.
When I got home I got this text:
She drank a whole cup of soup... it might sound small, but it is a great start!
Since we left now David and Jordan have also tried it and agree that it is nasty... so it might be nasty but if it helps her eat the benefits might outweigh the nasty taste...
So the plan is to reevaluate how she's doing tomorrow and go from there. The doctors said this morning that they will be looking at her treatment plan and maybe changing it up so it isn't so hard on her body.
Thanks again for all the prayers, she is still not up for visitors right now and has been able to rest well while she has been in the hospital. We appreciate each one of you!
*This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.*
