Topic: Upate and Checking in
Mom had chemo last Wednesday and saw the doctor too! He continues to be very pleased, bordering on amazed at how well she is responding to the chemo. Her tumor markers continue to drop and her liver functions, which had been non existent in the beginning are all normal! Not bad for a lady who was orange in June. Pumpkin orange at that!
Monday we are seeing the urologist to have the kidneys checked out. As I think I mentioned the tumor on her kidney was the only one not to shrink too much and the other kidney has a lot of inflammation. The oncologist wants to get a second opinion as there is kidney disease and kidney cancer in her family. Hoping we get good news here!
Other than that we survived the storm here with very little issue. I lost power here for 36 hours, Mom was out for 12 but neither of us sustained any property damage. I consider us truly lucky. My heart goes out to those who have lost so much from this storm. I hope everyone here fared ok!
