Hi everyone,
Well tomorrow is my mom's last a/c treatment (good), I wish I could be with her in Va. instead of here in Mi.(bad) I have made the 12 hr drive several times over the last few months to be with her,and talk to her daily.However, the 3rd treatment kicked her butt, and she doesn't want us to visit until she's feeling a little bettter and her blood count stays up.( she lives with my brother and his family).
Having breast cancer(i should say a mom with bc) once is awful, but twice is almost unthinkable!However, there have been some very Beautiful things that have happened too.
Like finding this web site (truely a blessing for me)--the amount of encouragement and inspiration here is endless. I really need this place to help me understand medically and emotionally what was going on with my mom.(thank you all) Then there's my mom's chemo nurse who handed my mom a personal blank check so my mom could get a very needed antibiotic prescription filled on her way home(my mom forgot her wallet).--I haven't gotten to meet her yet(the nurse) but I'm sure she must be an angel.
And my kids have a whole new appreciation of their gram-gram, as we've have been a lot more of her these last few months.
I'm not sure what to expect next for my mom, I am hoping that she'll recouperate quickly from this last a/c and be able to go on that mini vacation I've been promising her!
I want to thank all of you for sharing your lives with each other and allowing me access to information you have obtained through your experiences.you will always be in my prayers.
May God Bless you all,
Diane
