Update on Mary: Making Hay While the Sun Shines

Mom is having a really good week! She got to take a break from chemo this week, so she is feeling much better than usual. She has been eating more, including adding some meat and fruit to her diet (yay!), and has been taking far fewer pain pills this week. Fewer pain pills means shorter naps and more time for fun. Today we went to the Wiseburn School District's annual carnival. Dad always likes to show off his schools, so it was a good day for him. The boys had a grand time getting their faces painted, listening to the bands, riding a train, seeing a fire truck, and eating ice cream. It was a gorgeous day, and we all enjoyed spending some time in the sunshine and getting our vitamin D.

Please continue to pray:

Praise for a great week with extra energy and decreased pain!

Pray that we will find balance for her body with one set of medications.

Pray that her body will get the rest it needs from the chemo and that her blood counts (red and white) would be good.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and your support! You are making this difficult journey much easier on us, and we appreciate it more than we can express.
