niececola Posted June 15, 2004 Share Posted June 15, 2004 Hi, Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers. Yesterday was very upsetting, as I am sure you all can imagine. My mom spent the weekend in the hospital, going in Saturday morning, after a Friday chemo session, with breathing problems. She got a new CT scan and we found out for sure yesterday that there are several new nodules in both lungs and an increase in a pleural effusion. Not such great news, so any encouragement would be greatly appreciated. My mom was discharged last night and seems better. What she really needed is a good nap, who ever gets rest in the hospital? We are seeing the onc. on Thursday and she is gearing up for a new chemo treatment. She is in pretty good spirits considering all that has happened in the last couple of days. She had a wonderful week last week with friends and family in from out of town and seems to still be on a high from that, which is a true blessing. I was so afraid this journey was going to end yesterday. I called my mom from work and she sounded so out of it, it scared me more than anything else. It was such a relief to get to the hospital, seeing her eating lunch and joking with my Dad. I don't know how anyone gets through this really, I just knew coming to work Monday and checking the boards that Mo Sugar would not be with us anymore, and it is so hard to stay positive when such strong and wonderful people are losing the fight. But my mom is still here and I just have to keep telling myself that. It's not over til its over, I am just praying for a good meeting with the onc on Thursday, he better be ready to fight and if he is not, then I already have another one lined up! Thanks again for being such a wonderful support system for me! You are all in my prayers. Denise Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
