Its been awhile since I poste but things have gotten much worse. The kemo seemed to be working for awhile but then my mother seemed to be getting really confused and out of it. The doc said she had a UT infection and her blood was low she had a transfusion and started antibiotics. The very next day while I was cleaning her up she started having trouble breathing. I called the ambulance and her breathing was at 60. The hospital found she had pnemonia. She was in ICU for 3 days and a MRI has shown brain damage from the Chemo. She was in the hospital for another week and is now in a rehab it'll be at least 2 weeks before she can come home even with me to take care of her. I really don't know what to do if she should continue Chemo if her brain can heal or if we should just try to enjoy the time we have left with her. Has anyone else had to deal with a family member of loved one whos had brain damage from Chemo? Did you continue treatment? I'm so confused and scared and feel so alone please help.
