Mary Johnston Update

Mary has been on the chemo now since Friday afternoon and it is making her extremely sick.  She had to receive more blood and platelets on top of that yesterday.  The chemo is causing a great deal of pain and she pretty much all of the other side effects that chemo treatment brings.  Bro. Bob stated that they have her sedated, but the pain is too much.  She just lays there in a fetal position and they try to get the nausea under control.  There was a moment of levity on the phone when he was explaining that he doesn’t do well with vomit and that he has to keep a bucket going for him too.  Dawn is on her way back to the hospital to help and that will be good for him so he can get some rest.  They 24 hour a day chemo will continue through Friday at noon, and we are praying that this works.  Have you any days of fasting and prayer?  Bear up the hands that hang down, by faith and prayer; supporting tottering knees…Storm the throne of grace and persevere till Friday, and pray that grace and mercy will come down…
