Melissa has had a pretty rough day today for several reasons. She wanted me to share them with you, so that you could be praying specifically for these things. None of these things are alarming or surprising as we knew these could be possible side effects.
The high dose chemo brings some nasty side effects due to how acidic it is. Her stomach really starts to churn, which later turns into more gastro-intestinal type issues. This happened constantly throughout the day today. Just something that makes it that much harder to feel encouraged when you're dealing with that all day.
Also, we are praying that the really nasty mouth sores stay away. Those would also be a result of the chemo.
Lastly, and this is not related to chemo side effects. Her heart has been aching today to be at home with her children. One has been sick with a cough, so it sounds like it may be risky to see them or at least that one in person now. I know you already know this, but she is SUCH a good mother, and she just misses her little loves so much.
If you could pray specifically about these things, I know she would really appreciate it.
THANK YOU for your continued prayers!!!
