Friday Morning Update
Hi friends! I'm sorry it's been a few days. Janet has been doing well and there hasn't been much to update. She is chugging along and has completed two radiation treatments. She has been eating a little more and started taking some oral pain medicines yesterday. The plan at this point is for her to stay through next Tuesday when her last radiation treatment is and go from there. Her brother, David, came from Texas and stayed for a few days and she enjoyed getting to spend some time with him. I just spoke with her and her voice is going away and her throat is hurting again from starting back the radiation, so please continue praying for that pain since she still has three more treatments to go.
On Wednesday, Tony's mom, Lenora ("Grandma") was admitted to the same hospital with a severe UTI. She is right down the hall from Janet and isn't doing too well. She is awake and the nurse said she took her medicines with pudding yesterday, which was an improvement, but when we were there last night she wasn't responding to us and didn't act like she knew us. So poor Tony has both his wife and mother in the hospital right now... when is rains, it pours!
We got to take the boys up to see Janet in their Halloween costumes last night and visit for a little bit, not long, since taking an 8 month old and a 3 year old to the hospital is not on the top of our list for fun things to do. Ha, Hudson doesn't understand the concepts of "quiet" and "walking".
We appreciate the continued prayers and I will let you know if something changes. Still no visitors at this time, She has been able to get much needed rest and since her throat is hurting it is painful for her to talk. We appreciate everyone respecting her wishes. Also she thanks those who have sent her flowers, they are beautiful!
*This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.*
