Janet's first day of chemo

Here is the run down of Janet's first day of chemo in her own words:

"Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. Started off the day with perfect peace after having a restful night of sleep. Got to spend Valentine's Day with my very best friend, Tony, my sweet loving husband. We arrived at the office for chemo at 8:30 and really didn't know what to expect. I really didn't want to know anything and knew God was in control and would see me thru what ever lies ahead of me. I thought there might be gloom and doom with sad ladies sitting around with no hair. What I found were 5 ladies sitting in recliners with wigs and hats on talking about the peace God has given them in this journey. They are all several steps ahead of me and were very encouraging. I was the only one that had someone with them all day. Tony went out and got us lunch even bought lunch for one of the patients and nurse. (I love him more everyday) We have complete confidence that God has gone before us thru this journey and He is allowing us to be a part of a bigger story. I finished my first round of chemo in 6 hours and can tell you right now I feel good. The lady next to me said she never felt sick and she started round 2 today. I am overwhelmed of God's amazing grace and will continue to give Him all the glory for the great things He is doing. This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it."

And here are the pics:

The sweet valentines!

 Thank you for your prayers! They are being heard! Our God is good!

  3. Well, I got goose bumps reading and admit shed some tears. Tears of joy that it went so well, and tears because of the glory of her grace about this and how she's handling it. Her faith is a real encouragement to me and to others. What a witness. Tell her we're still praying and will continue to pray for her as she continues this journey. Also praying for you and Bryan and Hudson as we know it is a difficult time for you guys as well. God is answering our prayers already. God is so good. God Bless all of you, and we love you. Gma J

  5. Jenna - thanks for the updates here on your blog. Janet is in our thoughts and prayers and her ears must be burning much of the day because she is a part of our conversation so often here at the Sorey house! We are just so encouraged by her fierce courage and how she gives glory to God in all things! We love your family so much and will be praying you all through this part of your journey! :)
