Chemo: Progress

Mom completed her 1st week of chemo like a champ! As we anticipated it brought back many familiar and unfriendly memories for her. Instead of being negative about more chemo I started calling it her "medicine" as a more positive spin. We're trying to take it day-by-day and week-by-week. So far she's doing great considering the usual side effects. If you've had chemo you know that it may take days or weeks after your last infusion to feel even the slightest bit of normal again. By her 2nd week she was feeling the pep back in her step. Tomorrow she starts the 3rd week which consists of 2 "medicine" days followed by 2 days of fluids as doctors keep a close watch on her levels and health of the kidneys. As we imagine the cancer cells being destroyed and her "medicine" working we can do nothing but remain hopeful, patient and strong!

Keep Calm and Kerry On!
We love you Mom!
