We haven't been too good about updating recently, and we apologize. We know that so many people are praying for Noonie and you need to know what to pray for.
If you're counting with us, you know that Noonie has had five of the eight chemo treatments. The last one has caused more lasting side effects than the others. It is kind of disappointing, because she is off the harder chemo drugs. But there is nothing predicable about this, as we've learned.

and Travis, on the right, came in as part of a cross-country stopover.
Noonie's next chemo is Friday, July 22. Many of you have marked your calendars for chemo prayer days, so you might be surprised at the 22nd. Well, the two most recent scheduled dates were pushed back because of low white blood cell count, which means all future ones were pushed back.
If you want to mark your calendars again, you can mark them for July 22, August 12 and September 2. So, Noonie should be done by Labor Day. Praise the Lord!
What we've learned through this is that life is on hold. You can't predict how Noonie will feel and which days are going to be "good" ones and which are going to be "bad" ones. Once we seem to have it figured out, we're humbled.
In spite of this, we have sensed God's immeasurable peace. I have to admit, though, that we needed this week vacation and needed it now. Thank you Lord.
Pray for Noonie's encouragement. This wears on her. She is such an active, vibrant person. When the curve ball comes, it's hard. Especially when it comes again and again. I'm proud of her, as I know you are. And she needs our support and prayers and encouragement throughout the chemo season.
