Topic: A quick Mom update
Just a quick update on Mom
Things are going “OK”. Mom’s blood counts are on a pretty steady decline, white and red as well as platelets.
Dr has told her twice now that she NEEDS to take a break from the chemo. It IS working, which is proven by the good scan results. I get that she is terrified to stop chemo as she fears that the cancer will take hold and progress. She just cannot or will not understand that the chemo is doing more damage now than it is good.
Dr has decreased the doses drastically and has told her that at the end of this cycle he will either stop chemo or change it to something different. Her bone marrow is just so tired from the drugs.
Mom, as I have mentioned is very, very stubborn and really does not understand that this is big time serious with the blood counts dropping continually .
I just needed to “talk” to someone and I know you all understand this beast.
Thank you so much for listening. I know we will find a workable solution but I am just scared.
Hugs and Love
