lionking Posted December 30, 2006 Share Posted December 30, 2006 Yesterday my mom had her 1st round of alimta. Wow, she is one tough cookie! What i find concerning is that she is just so tired & fatigued! She hardly talks, stares off into space all the time and doesnt seem to have the energy to do anything at all. in the past week she has gained 7 lbs. Went from 107 to 114. this cannot be anything but fluid. the PA checked her out yesterday and said that the fluid must be distributed evenly for the most part because other than some lower leg edema she has no obvious swelling. She told me 2 days ago that she is 'tired of being tired' with the look that she gives me, which i know means she is close to making a decision. i dont want her to give up. I believe attitude is so important. dont know why she hardly speaks but i do know that she has fought a very tough battle with not one word of complaint. she is truly amazing. reading my post i realize it is vague and doesnt really say anything, i guess i am having either a real or imagined premonition? or because its very early in the morning and that is the easiest time to worry.....
