ma's kid Posted October 22, 2005 Share Posted October 22, 2005 Hi everyone! Well, we *were* on the downslide and then the doc delayed mom's last chemo treatment cuz her white count is down! I say downslide because she is oh so ready to not do this anymore. All in all she's done fairly well with both the radiation and the chemo. The doc did say he was giving her a strong dose and that she would feel pretty lousy and that has been the case. Not right away, but as the weeks have progressed, she has become increasinly fatigued, a tad confused and really weak. She had problems from the rad and her esophagus but thankfully that has improved! I think a scan will be ordered in about a month and then we will see what's what with this ugly disease. To say we are all apprehensive, is a gigantic understatement but if I have learned anything at all walking this road with her, it is to enjoy every single moment and to try and not worry bout' things we cannot control. A large part of my mindset is because of all of you beautiful people. You will never ever know just how helpful and comforting this board is for me. Even though my other family members do not come here, I constantly share with them anything I learn. I thank you for your support from the bottom of my heart and please know each and every single one of you and your family members are in my prayers. I truly believe, *together* we do make a difference. Love and light Libby Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
