Bonnie has completed six IV treatments, so that means we are down to 97 treatments left! It’s great to be in doubt digits – just like the temperature in AZ :). The treatments are going very well. The ‘itching’ is basically gone (YEA). A week ago Sunday was the first Sunday since Easter that Bonnie made it to church. We are thankful. We’ll continue with the IV’s on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sat. So that means were down to 97 treatments left! It’s great to be in doubt digits – just like the temperature in AZ :)
Despite all the good news this weekend took a surprising turn of events. Last night Bonnie started to feeling increasingly weak, dizzy and nauseous (often a sign of dehydration or Juno’s cooking). She was only able to take a few steps, so after some dialog on what to do, we decided to call the fire department and after they arrived and further consultation they called an ambulance to transport Bonnie to the hospital.
Bonnie’s blood count had dropped to 8.0 so she was given 2 units of blood on Sat night and is currently receiving another two this evening (Sunday June 14th). She is able to walk around and is starting to feel a lot better (I guess that’s what 4 units of blood and several IV’s of fluid will do to you).
Some friends are working on a couple of fund raisers to help with expenses. One being a huge garage sale and the other a benefit concert. Email Kurt at, firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire or check out joining one of the teams. A lot of help with be needed.
This verse has been on my mind the last couple of days…
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God, and the peace of god which surpasses all understanding shall guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
We are grateful for God’s faithfulness which is most evident in your love, prayers and support.
Juno, Bonnie and McKenzie
