"Let Faith Arise"

Psalm 121 "I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot slip-he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel (Janet) will neither slumber nor sleep.  The Lord watches over you-the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.  The Lord will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."

I went in today to see my oncologist at Highlands.  We had a list of questions to ask her and I believe she would have stayed in the room with us for hours to answer any question.  The new treatment I started 3 months ago is no longer working and things have only gotten worse.  As of Tuesday,  I will be on a treatment called Topotecan.  Last year my surgeon sent off my tumors to see what chemo drugs should work the best against the tumors I have.  Doxil, the treatment I have been on, showed to be the most effective one to work, but as we have seen over the past 3 months, it hasn't worked.  Topotecan is the next one on the list.  I will be going in weekly for treatment for 3 weeks, then take a week off.  The other drug that my insurance wouldn't approve, Avastin, still did not get approved but my oncologist has decided to give it to me anyway and try and get a drug rep to take care of the expense.  She said it didn't matter, I would be receiving the drug no matter what.  I believe that is answered prayer, thank you Jesus!!  Avastin will be given every 3 weeks.  We discussed Hawaii with her and she said we could still go but her advice would be not to postpone any treatments.  She was somber while talking with us today and admitted that she was there to treat me, but ultimately God was going to have to be the One to heal me.  My faith remains in Him and I will continue to trust Him completely on this journey. 


"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. Oh, Janet, praying for a miracle for you and will put you on my church's prayer list, FBC of Bastrop, Louisiana. May the Lord hold you extra tightly in the days ahead and give you peace. Hugs to you and your precious family.

  2. Praying for you and your family, Janet. May God shower you with His grace and His tender mercies.
    In sweet communion Lord with Thee,
    I constantly abide,
    My hand Thou holdest in Thine own,
    To keep me near Thy side.

  3. My mom had stage 4 lymphoma 6 years ago and went straight to MD Anderson in Houston. All they do is cancer. She's been in remission now since. The treatment there is cutting edge, and all they do is cancer. They take your insurance, so this isn't out of pocket. I'd go get a second opinion. The stories she's heard there of people getting grim reports from their doctors at home, then coming there and being completely treated and in remission are amazing. It wouldn't hurt for you to try. God is able to do miracles, no doubt. Will be praying!

  4. Janet
    I will continue to keep you and your family in prayer. God is using this trial for good. I pray that the chemo will work and that you will be free of side effects.
    Love in Christ,
    Janice Gordon
    Wilton, NH

  5. Janet... I will continue to pray for you and your family.


  6. Oh, sweet Janet, thank you for sharing your update with your church family. Your testimony of your journey shows what a strong faith God is giving you. Those who know & love you want to lift your current health needs to the Lord, & trust Him to heal, guide & comfort you every step of the way. Sharing the Father's love for you, & claiming the power of the Holy Spirit to show us complete healing for you, we pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Glory to His name! Amen & Amen!
    Jerry & Judy Carwile

  7. Janet, Cindy and I are praying for you...

    Be not dismayed what-e’er betide,
    Beneath His wings of love abide;
    Thru’ days of toil when heart doth fail,
    When dangers fierce your path asail;
    No matter what may be the test,
    Lean, weary one, upon His breast.
    God will take care of you,
    Thru’ every day, o’er all the way:
    He will take care of you,
    God will take care…..of you!
