Thanks for the prayers

I just wanted to update you all on how Jan is doing. She has received a procedure called plasma phoresus 3 times. It's a procedure in which they filter out the plasma and add new and it is working well. They feel her kidneys failed because of the large dose of chemo she had, but expect them to start working again soon. The infection is also looking better, but is healing very slowly. She said she is starting to keep food down and is even feeling a little hungry. She thanks you all for your prayers. Please keep it up!

It wasn't actually dialysis, it was plasma phoresis. It is a process in which they filter out all of the plasma and then they add new plasma. It was three times and it is working, I just wanted to clarify.
