Update on Marie Foley ~my Mom

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to let you know that my mother is in the hospital. They found 3 tumors at the base of her brain. So, all chemo and radiation for her lung cancer is off and she is going to have 15 radiation treatments for the brain cancer.

Please continue to keep Marie in your prayers. And thank you for all the support you have given her.

So sorry to hear about your mom being in the hospital. You said her spirits were good and that is the first line of defense. Will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

Elaine,

Let Marie know that I'm sending her an extra ounce of courage I had just laying around the house. I'm glad that someone figured out what was wrong and she is being treated accordingly. It sucks that some side effects of medication can be the same as warning signs of other conditions.

Hope she's back to her young self soon and out of the hospital so she can rest!

My best,

Becky

Have they given her anything to reduce the swelling in her brain? They may want to give her some ver. of Decadron. Be sure and ask about "all" the side effects. Does she have the double vision in "both" eyes or in just one? Is there any mental fuzzyness? Does she have strength in her arms and legs?

Sorry for all the ???????

From one Elaine to another:

I am sorry to hear the latest about your mother, but I am glad that they have found the root of the problem and are treating it accordingly.

Had to use that salutation; if not it was too much like talking to myself, which I have been doing a lot of lately.

Love to your mom.

Prayers heading Marie's way....and thanks for updating us. I'm so sorry to hear this...but I'm very glad her spirits remain good, as that's so important.

Hoping for relief for her and that next time, you'll have a very good report for us!

You are all so wonderful. Thank you.

Don, yes, they did give my Mother decadron for the swelling but it caused an increase in her blood sugar so she is also on insulin. The tumors are on the thallumus and the optic nerves. She has very minimal ability to get around. Can stand to get into the chair or bed. The double vision is in both eyes so she is wearing an eye patch.

This has been very aggressive. She goes back for radiation tomorrow.

I will be making the trip to be with her tomorrow. I will keep you posted.

Elaine....

PS... Elaine.....I like your salutation :)

I am posting this under my Mothers sreenname for her.

Besides the song "I Ain't Down Yet" This is another one of her "fight songs". I wish I could find and actual link to the song for you....it is so cute. But it is a newer version of "Stand by Me" and it's dedicated to all of you.

With a tear and a smile,

Elaine

Artist Lyrics: Disney

Song Lyrics: Stand By Me-Timon And Pumba

Timon:

When the night has come

And the land is dark

And the moon is the only light we'll see

Oh I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So Pumba, Pumba, stand by me, oh oh oh stand by me

Ooh stand, stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon

Should tumble and fall

Or the mountains they should crumble to the sea

I won't cry

Pumba:

You won't cry?

Timon:

Noo I won't shed a tear

Pumba: Not shed tear

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So Pumba, Pumba, stand by me, oh oh won't you stand by me

Ooh stand, stand by me, stand by me

Pumba:

Eeh, I don't think I like this sooong!

So Pumba, Pumba, stand by mee, oh oh won't you stand by me

Ooh stand, come on! stand by me, stand by me

Pumba:

Timon?

Timon:

Yes?

Pumba:

Can I sing the next song?

Timon:

Sure, as long as you stand by me!

Frogs:

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me,

Oh oh ooh stand by me

I know you need me, stand by me, oh oh oh oh stand by me oooh heey.
