Mary Johnston Update

Spoke with Bro. Bob this morning and he said that Mary is having a good day today.  Last night she didn’t have a fever and the head-to-toe rash that she has is getting better.  She is still having to contend with the sores in her mouth, but they are treating that.  She is still needing to receive blood and platelets pretty regularly and the doctors are hoping to be able to test her bone marrow soon.   Originally, they were looking at testing on the 7th, but they have given them a window out until the 11th for that.  Prayers are that the chemo and other drugs they have been giving Mary will be working on the Leukemia, if not, they will give her another round almost immediately.  Their spirits seem to be up, and their daughter Stephanie is currently with them.

They are encouraging her to get up and move around, so I think she was going to take Bro. Bob out for a walk this afternoon 🙂  Some sun and fresh air will do them both some good.  They didn’t pack Bro. Bob’s leash with them, so hopefully there won’t be any run-in’s with security…Please continue to pray that the treatments are working and for grace to deal with side effects.  Also, please continue to consider helping with a love gift for the medical and living expenses.  Donations can be sent to Berean Baptist Church, c/o Mary Johnston Medical Fund, PO Box 73042, Puyallup WA 98373.
