Chemo Update

Mom just completed her 4th treatment today and will finish it up tomorrow. Now she only has 4 more to go! Treatments are currently spaced 3 weeks apart which hardly seems like enough lately as the recovery time takes a few weeks. Since it's been hitting Mom pretty hard they decided to cut her dose by 15% and have included more anti-nausea drugs in with the mix as well as appetite stimulant and help with heartburn.
Jen's leaving for her Senior year of college on Saturday. It will be a nice break for her but hard on Mom to have her gone. So if anyone wants to help out or come visit Mom please call her, she would love that!
Until next time...
