Janice needs our help! Janice Joel is so much to so many. She is divot Christian who always puts others first. Her family and others well-being are paramount in her world. On Monday December 17th Janice went to the emergency room with what we thought was a really bad case of pneumonia. While the doctors ran multiple tests to figure out what was wrong, her condition worsened. On Wednesday Dec. 19th, Janice was intubated and medically induced into a very deep sleep. With a ventilator breathing for her the doctors ran multiple tests including a bone marrow biopsy. The result is a blood cancer called multiple myeloma. By this stage the cancer had attacked her kidney requiring dialysis. Janice has just one kidney, as she saved her sisters life by donating one of hers 15 years prior. On Dec 25th. the doctors discovered two holes in her intestines. Without emergency surgery, she would die and her chance of surviving the surgery was very slim. Janice survived the Christmas surgery and is facing a long, hard road to recovery! Janice has had several blood transfusions, atrial fibleration, a stroke at some point and various other complications along with the start of chemo while intubated. She has now awoken to find all of this out. This amazing preschool teacher has always proven to be a fighter and now a survivor. Janice and Dudley need an immense amount of help, and anything you can financially offer to help with various expenses towards medical bills is a blessing. Enough thanks cannot be said about the wonderful staff of doctors, nurses and other staff members who have kept Janice alive.   Thank you all for your love and support! GOD IS GREAT!

Janice has proven to be a fighter folks!!! She is doing as well as to be expected. She has her ups and downs, as far as more surgeries, medication reactions, and physical therapy.

She is not ready for discharge yet, but the conversation has come up. The doctors are requiring Janice to go to a rehabilitation facility before going home. This is great that she can have “in-between” care to help her get as well as possible, but as most of you know Janice does not have Health Insurance. Making this a very pricy, but non-negotiable decision.

We appreciate all your love and continued support during this tremendous life changing time.

As Janice continues to recover she is still in the hospital. Her kidney is functioning nicely, and she has been taken off dialysis! This is a huge step forward!

Unfortunately, her epiglottis is not working correctly causing Janice to aspirate. Which means anything she eats, and drinks is being inhaled into her lungs. It is also affecting her speech.

Janice had G-Tube Surgery this morning. The G-tube goes directly into the stomach. The surgery creates a stoma, a visible opening that connects to the feeding tube outside the body.

Please continue to pray for Janice and her family, as today marks 4 weeks in the hospital.
