I'm sorry about your mother in law. The chemo is brutal, I know.

Prayer is a given, from me...for both of you. If you watch TV/movies with her-make it comedies, tell her joke, get her to smile-endorphines from laughter will help ease the pain. Give her berries-black raspberries, cherries, blue berries etc annd anti oxydents, give her a juice glass of purple grape juice-welches in the morning and at night- an anti viral, it you can get Thymic formula start her on that if she tolerates it. It replaces the hormones the body stop producing when it is stressed, improves the immune system and fights the disease, cut out all red meats, milk-very harsh on the digestive system eat real foods not GMO if possible- have furilizers and insectisides built into their genes-not condusive to recovering. the body needs to rest to heal and recover, Exersise if possible simple at first-stretch your muscles- acids.waste products build up and movement helps to remove them-less cramps, muscle pain..message is good if approved by her doctor also removes waste and relaxes the muscles-helps them to know they are still worth touching..be gentle. always message towards the heart not away from. IE:up the leg not down. It's a good start! Love in Christ!

believing you can win is the all within all. You have my prayers and I will ask the Lord to comfort your mother-in-law but she has to believe in her self, her will to live, she has to believe that she can beat this thing and she has to want to beat it. The pain and suffering are terrible but not being here with your loved ones is worse. So tell her to turn to our Lord and tell her to ask him to help her through this and he will pick her up and keep her safe. I know cause my wife fought the fight and although she lost her battle with cancer in the end we had one whole year to love each other and to enjoy life before she went. It may seem hopeless at times but that is only because you are not believing in the fact that our Lord is taking care of you and your mother-in-law and he will give you strength to see this through to the end whether that end is death, remission or cure. My prayers are with you

Dear Icecube, I pray that you and your mom in law receive every help and consolation. I pray that she receives proper palliative care and remission if possible. I pray that you will have the ability to cope.

Yes I will certainly pray for both of you and I am so glad you realize there is power in prayer. Whilst chemo is a very hard treatment to go through there are good antinausia drugs that she may talk to her ocolugist ,as perhaps she needs a different medication that would help her through this nausisated experience which is very hard on you .lots of rest is required at times,this is part of the course. Don't give up, there is a higher power that can do for her what no one else can! From my own experience , all the treatment I had could only take me so far, I had to ask God to do the rest. Today I am 15 months cancer free . if you read cancer servivors,you will see there are many stage 4 survivors some a few months and some years!! So there is hope throu
gh God ,when others give no hope.. Pray , believe and trust God to do the rest! Joy

Hi , you have not told us very much about your mother in law, what stage is she? Has she suffered from depression in the past? Is she married ? other than you does she have any other support.
For you , take care, you need to be strong.. it's her story, God holds her in his palm and will be with her always. For you may the Peace of Christ be with you. Do not be afraid, you can do this.
Take care and be kind to yourself.. this is a first for you it's understandable to have a lot of concerns.
