Hey there!
I hate that the past few days had to be so rough but THANK GOD you are in Omaha and just one more day until the surgery. I will continue to pray with all my might.
Chris, thank you so much for being so faithful with the blog. Never forget that there are more people than you could ever know fighting this fight with you.
Lots and lots of love to you. Give Jan a big hug for me!

Chris and Jen,
My thoughts and prayers are with you both as always. You two are both strong and loving. I wish you the best this week and hope all goes well with the surgery.


Stay strong girl and remember during those moments when it's quiet and all you can do is think, God is with you. He's there for you no matter what, giving you the strength and courage you need to get through all of this! And you will! The Hoffman/Hunt clan loves you so much and we're all praying for you!

I am so sorry the NG tube insertions go so badly for you. Sometimes the very best person on the floor to insert the tube is a LPN who has worked for years in a nursing home. INSIST on the best person available, ask your charge nurse who this person is and insist she insert the tube. MDs are good at giving orders but not always the best to perform the procedure they order. Chris, I have the most profound admiration for the extraordinary care you have given Jen with such complex medical issues such as TPN and IV narcotics ect. You make everything sound like a piece of cake and I know these things are not easy esp. when you are caring for someone you love who is in pain. You are BOTH extraordinary people. As a RN I know a little about what you are going through, please dont hesitate to call night or day if I can be of any service in any way (901)854-9502. Jan was once my best friend in the world and my heart aches for all of you.

I am constantly lifting you up in my prayers, along with Chris, Emma, Peighton, and your mom. You are in God's hands, He will work through your docs and nurses. He is in control. He is the Great Healer. With Him all things are possible!!! Stay strong. (easy for me to say--I am not going through all that you are going through, but I sure wish I could lighten that load.) Our love to you--the Casements.

I come to your blog each week to read your story. Your Mom and I are friends as I had posted in the past. I cannot help but be moved by both of you. I have you in my thoughts so much and wish you a safe and speedy surgery tomorrow. I cannot help but know that God has you in his arms ready to send you home to your family to embrace for years to come. You will be in my prayers.

Jen Ward

I cannot imagine what you are going through, only God knows! Please remember that I am praying for you like crazy!

Jen, Chris, and Jan,
There are so many of us praying for you and for a successful surgery tomorrow. Please know how much we appreciate Chris updating the blog to keep us informed, and also how much we appreciate Jan being there to help hold you both up. God is the one in charge and he has listened to our prayers. Time to have surgery and totally remove this nasty cancer, and then we will all be thanking the Lord for your 100% health. IT WILL HAPPEN! The Lord will heal you in his ever loving arms.

Chris, please keep us updated as soon as you can after the surgery. Much love. Jan
