Please pray tonight.

Dnes večer mám rychlou prosbu o modlitbu.

The side effects from the strong doses of chemotherapy the week of Christmas are getting more and more intense and uncomfortable for Martin. He has terrible head aches and sores in his nose, mouth and on his lips which make eating and drinking (and laughing!) painful.

Vedlejší účinky velmi silné chemoterapie z minulého týdne Vánoc jsou stále více intenzívní a pro Martina velmi nepříjemné. Má ukrutné bolesti hlavy a boláky v nose, puse a na rtech. Je obtížné jíst, pít i smát se.

I was hoping to write saying that these side effects are getting better, but instead I need to ask you to pray specifically for these. Especially for the head aches.

Doufala jsem, že budu moct napsat, že vedlejší účinky se zlepšují, ale místo toho bych vás potřebovala poprosit, abyste se přímo za tyto věci modlili. A to hlavně za bolesti hlavy.

Earlier in the week, he had a few fevers which were carefully watched and soon broke. His eyes also burned for a few days when a medicine/gel had to be applied. I am happy to share that those two  things seem to be better.

Na začátku týdne jsme měli několik horeček, které byly pečlivě sledovány a následně brzy přešly. Jeho oči pálily po několik dní, kdy byla aplikovaná léčba/gel. Jsem ráda, že mohu říct, že tyto věci se zdají lepší.

*Please pray that the headaches and the sores subside, that the fevers don't return and for deep encouragement for all of us.
Thank you again for being with us in this.

Prosím modlete se, aby se zlepšily bolesti hlavy a aby polevily boláky. Aby se nevrátily horečky a pro hluboké povzbuzení pro nás všechny.
Znovu vám děkuji, že jste v tom s námi.

thanks Veronika for super fast translation!!!
I have a new song (actually i think it's an old hymn) recommended by a friend that has meant a lot this week and would like to share the words below. We continue to trust and believe and have hope only only in Jesus.

Grace upon Grace, by Sandra M
In every station, new trials and new troubles
Call for more grace than I can afford
Where can I go but to my dear Savior
For mercy that pours from boundless stores.


Grace upon grace, every sin repaired
Every void restored, you will find Him there
In every turning He will prepare you
With grace upon grace.

He made a way for the fallen to rise
Perfect in glory and sacrifice
In sweet communion my need He supplies
He saves and keeps and guards my life

To Thee I run now with great expectation
To honor You with trust like a child
My hopes and desires seek a new destination
and all that You ask Your grace will provide.
