justme2007 Posted December 11, 2006 Share Posted December 11, 2006 Saw my mom this weekend, after round 2 of chemo. Hadn't seen her since Thanksgiving. Oh gosh, she seems to be getting worse. I know the chemo makes you tired, but she is just so weak that she can hardly walk. She can't dress or bath herself. We shaved her head, and she looks beautiful! She is/used to be a very sharp, intelligent woman and an avid reader - - now she says she can only do "light" reading because she can't process more complicated reading. You can tell in talking to her that it is taking her longer to process what you're saying. Sometimes she seems confused. At least she is forcing herself to eat a little. My poor frail mom. Next week they're doing scans I guess. My gut tells me the doc will recommend stopping treatment, but who knows. Maybe my fear is just getting the best of me? But her quality of life is so poor. She's been "watching" church on t.v. everyday now. My Dad is really starting to be in an angry mood. Now I'm just rambling. I just posted this because I know it's not good to stuff my feelings. I hope she will just fight hard and hang on to see her grandchild in a cute little Xmas eve get-up . . . ! When I pray, I try to remember to ask that his His will, not mine, be done. I just had a good cry, so now I can get some work done hopefully. Peace, Beth Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
