My mom had a allogenic bone marrow transplant in September. We have been staying about an hour from home for the last two months to be close to the Dr. and cancer center. She is sleeping all the time and I have to push her to eat anything and to take her pills which there are a lot of. I am constantly worried about every single thing, her blood counts, is she experiencing graft vs. host disease, how vain get yet to do her mouth rinse, etc. it is a lot and it takes every bit of patience in me at this point. I love my Mom but sometimes I just want to yell at her to get up, take her pills and eat something! I am not in her shoes so I really have no clue how she feels because she has a hard time articulating, has anyone bees caregiver to a transplant patient?
I would live some common stories or experiences to know I am not crazy!
