We have seen God on this road. This week, through various contacts and second medical opinions, He has clarified the way. We ask for FULL HEALING and believe it will come. We also ask that it will come in HIS WAY and in HIS TIME. Whatever will best accomplish His purposes in Jenna, in us, in His kingdom. She is in His capable, loving hands.
We are pursuing lots of natural remedies that have been building up her immune system and we will continue to do that throughout this whole process. The Lord has also given us some great traditional medical resources and we are thankful for them. Our insurance is covering everything and we are super grateful.
At this time the TREATMENT PLAN is:
1. Surgery on Monday, Feb 3, to remove her stomach (total gastrectomy). This is meant to eradicate to the primary cancer. They will connect her esophagus to her small intestine. They will also take out her belly button (!!) where the umbilical tumor that she first noticed was.
2. During surgery they will employ a localized peritoneal chemo. This procedure infuses & circulates anti-cancer drugs into the abdominal cavity.
3. Post recovery from surgery (approx. 6 weeks), she will begin intravenous chemo.
It is a relief to have come to some decision and now we will be praying and waiting this weekend, getting ready for Monday, when the BIG ADVENTURE continues!
We plan to tell the Drs. Monday to make sure they check to be sure that there is STILL a tumor in there before taking out her whole stomach!! Who knows what road the Lord is going to choose??
THANK YOU for standing with us.
