Update on Mary

This afternoon Mom was able to get her chemo, although just barely because her white blood cell counts were rather low. This was really discouraging for her because this month the doctor reduced her dose with the hopes that a lesser dose would allow her to have her chemo for the entire 3 week cycle. The last two months she has only been able to do two out of three chemo treatments due to low blood counts.

On a very positive note, her CA-19 marker went down a tiny bit this month, for the second month in a row, so it appears that her chemo drug is still working well enough for her to continue on it for the time being. This is a huge praise! Mom really prefers to stay on this drug for as long as possible.

Please pray for Mom's bone marrow to start producing more white blood cells. Pray that her chemotherapy will continue to work, and that her cancer would be contained and eradicated. Pray that she would get good rest and have lots of energy in the next few weeks.

Thank you so much for continuing to pray for Mom. We are so thankful for all of you.
