Please pray for my step-mother, Jan Christine. Jan was diagnosed with Breast cancer right before Thanksgiving. She has an agressive form of cancer, but is in the early stages of fighting hard to kicks its uninvited butt. She has been though two rounds of chemo, and will have her third round on Monday afternoon. After four rounds, she will have a lumpectomy and then radiation.
I have not been able to let her diagnosis sink in fully, it feels like way to much for her and my family to face right now. Jan's entire career has been in nursing. She has given herself to caring for others who needed help so badly. We have been praying nightly and daily for her healing. Isla has been focusing her prayers on Gramma getting her hair back. I know Gramma appreciates all of our prayers right now!
We love you Gramma Jan, and are praying that you heal completely. We are sending mighty heart strings your way, and know that our community of friends will be doing the same! XO
Dad & Jan when they came to visit after Oakes' transplant
Isla and I were playing with Oakes, he was smiling and batting at his toys...
....but Gramma Jan stood at the end of his bed, eyes locked on Oakes and just prayed and prayed.
And here is Grampa Bill and Gramma Jan showing Isla how fun dry ice can be!
Makes me smile seeing Isla so small and sweet, and so comfortable around her adoring grandparents.
