Topic: Overdue update
Hello dear friends
It's been a while since I have updated you on Mom. Last time I did we were in a tough spot with her as she was in a nasty mood and the urologist appointment was pretty unpleasant.
I have not been able to go to the last 2 chemo appts with her, one due to my son's return from Afghanistan this past week and today because I have picked up a cold/flu which has been really knocking me down. I know I could not possibly take her to chemo with this, but she was only to get Gemzar and be done in about an hour. Well she called me and said she was not able to have chemo today due to her white blood cell count being so low. Now I am even happier I did not take her, knowing she would have been so susceptible to picking up this cold.
I do have more news... Mom is scheduled to have her 3 stents changed on December 10. We also have scans scheduled for December 5. So it will be a busy month by the sounds of things.
I also learned that her oncologist is now talking about continuing the chemo past December. I'm not sure if I mentioned that he had said he would be stopping it in December and we would take a wait and watch approach. I was not at that appointment with Mom so I was not able to ask him why he changed his mind but I will be seeing him on the 13th of December so I can talk to him then about all of it. I am wondering and a little worried that perhaps her tumor markers have changed. I asked her if he mentioned that but she was not sure. So many questions I need to ask now lol
I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, (those who celebrate it)!
