17th March Chemo Day 24

We’re on a roll… another quiet day. Jane remains completely exhausted though and can hardly walk as it seems Tuesday’s chemo is now beginning to show its teeth. She’s found using an oxygen machine to be a very workable alternative to morphine during the day and it’s been running continuously for 24 hours now. We have to trust that controlling Jane’s coughing using oxygen therapy and other medication will promote some measure of healing from the damage caused by the cough itself. But really only the chemo is designed to cause the cancers to shrink enabling Jane to regain some measure of good health. Three weeks ago Jane started her first chemo cycle and saw how it affected her as it did its work. Significantly after about a week her breathing and coughing improved quite substantially and so it would be good to see that again only this time without the subsequent reversal.

Jeremiah 33v6 ‘I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.’ (NIV)
