I am so happy to say that Mom made it through all three weeks of her new treatment and now gets to have a week of rest and recovery. Mom went into this treatment rather sick, so it is hard to know if the chemo is making her much sicker than she would be without it, but either way she has not been feeling fantastic lately. On the bright side, her insurance approved her request to get her shots at home, so she no longer has to go to the doctor's every day following chemo. This is a huge blessing.
Please pray that this new treatment would be effective in fighting her cancer and that it would shrink the tumor away from whatever organ or valve or whatever it is currently pressing on that is causing mom so much discomfort.
Pray for Mom's platelets to stay up, they were very low this week.
Pray that mom would come to terms with losing her hair (a side effect of this chemo). It has been nice for mom to spend the last few years not really looking like she has cancer, so this will be an adjustment for her.
Pray for my dad as he works so hard to care for mom, that he would get good sound sleep and that he would have peace.
Thank you all for your many prayers! We are so grateful for you.
