Ok after several nervous weeks and 4 unplanned weeks off since her first chemotherapy infusion my mom receives her 2nd infusion today. If you recall after her first infusion her blood levels were horrible and they discovered she had a UTI infection which got into her blood. She completed her antibiotic of cipro and the infection is cleared. Her oncologist said he was very surprised at how well her sacral met responded to radiation.
He was not happy she had to miss 4 weeks of chemotherapy but said they are back on schedule. I want to thank all of you guys for this wonderful board.
When she was diagnosed in June I went to a very dark place and since then my mind set has changed dramatically. I found taking this all one battle at a time is how you survive. You cannot look ahead and you cannot look back. The shorter the memory the better and we are taking one day at a time. So for now we are happy with the good news about her sacral met :-)
