Well- Mom has survived through her many bumps in the road. She is rid of her bowel obstruction. She had #6 last week and has not had near the side effects with the change of chemo meds (no oxi, no 5FU push- only leuvocorin and 48 hours of 5FU and decadron). No diarrhea, things are starting to taste good again, good energy, able to work everyday, even walking without a walker.
Things are looking up! She is ready for #7 next week- she usually dreads it but has had enough good days it is ok.
She has lost most of her hair and is going to look at wigs tomorrow. Her attitude toward chemo and getting through the last half is so good. Prayer and Hope- that is what gets her and our family through this.
I just love this site for all the encouragement!
