Mary Jo's Condition Updated. Saint Peregrine, Pray For Us

Hello, everyone. First of all, I want thank all of you for your prayers and support this past week. My wife, Mary Jo, is still feeling well, although she is feeling tired again as she was before the chemo treatment. She was given two units of blood before the treatment to boost her blood levels. Her blood levels have become low again mainly due to her bone marrow not producing blood cells as it would normally because of the chemo treatment on Friday.They have been giving her shots to boost her white blood cell count in her bone marrow and iron to boost her platelet level. This evening they are giving her two more units of blood in attempt to stabilize her blood levels quicker
. We are hoping that she will be released in the next couple of days. I ask you to continue to pray for Mary Jo as she continues this first round of her battle to put this dreadful disease, Mantle Cell Lymphoma, into remission. Deacon Gerry
