Update on Mary: Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Mom had a rough chemo last week, but she has bounced back- just in time for chemo again this week. Yesterday she felt good enough to get out of the house, so we loaded up the wagon and stroller and walked to our neighborhood park. We had a picnic lunch and flew a new "angry birds" kite. Tomorrow mom will hopefully have chemo again, this time her "easy" chemo. Please pray with us that:

Her white count will be high enough for her to go in and get the chemo.

Her veins will be easy to find and setting up the chemo will go well.

She will not be nauseous after this round of treatment.

She can gain weight. She has been eating a greater varieties of foods, but she is still losing weight. If she loses too much she will not be able to continue the trial.

Praise God that her pain has decreased so much, and that she is getting some appetite back. It is so encouraging to see her polish off a root beer float, and then ask for another!

Thank you so much for your prayers!
