Mom has had her ups and downs since her chemo treatment on October 21st. The chemo hit her really hard the first few days and then she began to feel better. She is easily tired, but tries to get out and enjoy life, friends and this gorgeous weather we have been having.
Here’s a picture of Mom and Dad at a local Mexican restaurant. We went there last Friday. Doesn’t she look well!
Tonight she came over to my house to watch the kids with my Dad while I went to court. She was wearing a bandana because her hair is starting to come out. I know that it is discouraging to pull on your hair and tufts to come out. She said she may have me come over and cut her hair off tomorrow. Pray for us!
Next Tuesday she will have a surgical procedure done to put in her Port – Catheter. This is a device that is put into her chest that sits up against her ribs. It is a catheter that they can give her chemo in, take blood from and is much easier than using her veins. Chemo is very hard on the veins, so this will keep her from messing with IV’s every time she has blood drawn or chemo given.
Then Wednesday she will have her next treatment of chemo. They will also do a blood draw to check to see how the chemo is affecting her cancer. I am not sure how long that takes to get results. I will let you know.
Also, her bladder thing is still there. She found out that it is not uncommon for women on chemo to have bladder infections. So she gave a sample and they will be testing it to find out if it is a normal infection for a chemo patient or if it’s something else. If it is, they will refer her to an oncologist.
So to pray. . .
Pray for the Lord to be the lifter of her head, her healer, her strength.
Pray for the bladder thing to be normal.
Pray for the port-cath procedure Tuesday
Pray for the chemo treatment Wednesday.
Pray for GOOD results from the blood work – that it is having an affect on the cancer!
I shall NOT die, but LIVE to declare the glory of the LORD!!
