It's been a while since we've written. I think we're all exhausted, especially Mom. She's hanging in there and doing so well. This is very hard on Mom of course and we have no idea what she's really going through but one thing is for certain. This woman is SO STRONG! I admire my mother and wish I could be more like her. Dealing with this everyday makes my complaints seem so ridiculous in comparison. However, no matter what's going on with us Mom's always there to help support us or just be an ear.

The chemo schedule is for 6 months, Tuesday and Wednesday every 21 days. It's pretty strong stuff so it hits her hard and she has a few days of feeling better, then more treatments. Anyone having gone through chemotherapy knows exactly what I'm talking about and you know how difficult it is to stay motivated. Considering everything Mom's been through in the past 2+ years I think she's handling this so well!

We'll keep in touch! Thanking you all for your love and support!
Love Jess
