Thanks to all of you who are supporting me. In general I would say that, after a critical point my sister is showing objective improvements:
- Good appetite
- More energetic: she wants to walk to the church or scroll slowly to the cafeteria across the street, she is not 90% of the time lying down but sitting on the sofa, she also is very talkative...
- The skin is not that yellow as it was.
- Swallowing has drop notably, I am tempted to say dramatically
Nevertheless, a bad sign is the cachexia. Her weight went down in four weeks by two kilos BUT we have to consider the reduction in her swallowed abdomen.
Other aspects such as anguish, etc are more under control, partly because following doctor prescription she is taking alprazolam.
Do you think that this might mean that chemo is working somehow? I am not saying here that she is being healed but perhaps her tumor might be shrinking a little bit.
