Mom had a round of tests and scans last Thursday and, at the doctor’s appointment yesterday, they found out the results. Long story short, these last several weeks of chemo treatments every Wednesday and of being very ill from it the rest of the week haven’t done anything! The tumors are exactly the same size as the last scans showed. No bigger, but no smaller.
But Mom is smaller. She is down to about 100 pounds now and is so weak that she needs a wheel chair to get about if she needs to go more than a dozen or so steps. Her voice is weaker, too, when I talk to her on the phone.
She gets a three-week break from chemo treatments, then they are going to try something else since the current drug isn’t working.
The cards that you have been sending her have been greatly appreciated. She reads them over and over and she says she can feel the good will and prayers directed toward her.
Mom is only 66 years old. And I am scared for her. Please keep the prayers going her way and for Dad, too, because he is very worried and disappointed in the test results.
