Update on Mary: Feeling Low

Mom's white blood count was terribly low this week. Thankfully, she was allowed to do chemo, but because her blood count plummeted so far after the last chemo that they have reduced her to a 75% dose. She must have her blood count up to at least 1500 by next Wednesday in order to do her chemo on Thursday.

Despite this being her "easy" chemo week, her side effects have been a bit more pronounced in these last few days. This means she is generally feeling crummy and tired. It's hard to stay positive and motivated when you feel so badly.

Please pray that her blood count will improve, that she will stay healthy, that she will have less nausea, and that she would feel encouraged.

Thank you so much for your prayers!
