Day two of chemo
Today was Ellie's second day of chemotherapy. Throughout the pain, nausea, and reactions to the treatment, Ellie has really shown her inner strength. She is bearing up under the difficulty and is adapting well by learning to trust the medical staff. She will have more chemo tomorrow, then have 18 days off of treatment.
Ellie's immune system will be weakened by the chemo treatments and rest is very important right now. For these reasons, John and Sarah are asking that Ellie not have visitors at this time. They are so appreciative of your love and care for them. Your notes of encouragement have been a huge blessing. If you would like to visit them in the future, please call or email Ginger. She will take your name and number in order to contact you when Ellie is able to receive visitors. If you don't know how to reach Ginger, post a comment to this blog and she will get it.
Please continue to send your notes and emails of encouragement. They are reading them and receiving comfort from knowing that many of you are thinking of and praying for them.
Please pray specifically for Ellie's physical strength, that she would handle the treatments, and for her inner strength.
Please pray for Sarah, Nancy, and John’s aunts as they care for Ellie at this time.
Thank you from all of the family.
