Hey there everyone I'm Nick and I'm 18 years my Mother has AML.
My mom (winnie or ma from here on out) was diagnosed with AML on March 31st 2010. Winnie has been a CNA for the last 14 years and she is tough as nails. She started chemo the next day and has been doing either as well as expected or better throughout. Well this last week was her second out of chemo and she was expected to bounce back. She didn't. Quite the opposite actually her fevers have stayed strong and her counts continue to stay low no sign of a recovery. On Tuesday another bone marrow biopsy was conducted and the results came back today.She is 16 days out of her first round of chemo and we just found out(about 20 min ago) that the chemo was unsuccessful and she needs to start another round. Does anyone have any similar experience or know how to help me help her with this?
Help support or just conversation with people in a similar boat is much appreciated.
