She will be in the hospital for 10 days.

As family and friends we are holing a fast on Sunday, January 4th in her behalf.

We ask that all who would like to please join us.

She did it!




The hardest part is over.

The CT was normal.

The EGD was normal.

As soon as her labs are back down to normal,

she will start to feel normal.

3 to go!

The CT scan is happening now.

Of course 2 hours later than the scheduled time.

She had to fast after midnight.

Then she was supposed to drink 6 cups of juice/contrast.

She only made it though 5.

It made her SO SICK!

They finally called her back.

Then it's off the radiation at 11:30.

Today they start in on the radiation that is localized to the tumor site.

Hopefully it won't be harder on her.

Her EGD from yesterday didn't show anything abnormal.

We are hoping the same for the CT scan.

Week 6 Countdown

Almost there!

I drove Mom up on Monday.

Monday wasn't a good day.

She has a new pain in her upper stomach.

This is a very intense pain.

Her labs were good and back to almost normal.

But..the Doctor looked at her and told her that just from looking at her, he wasn't going to do the infusion.

He told her that she could start the chemo pill again.

So we did.

He called 10 minutes later and told us never mind.

Too late.

He told her that he wanted a CT scan and a EGD to see if they could see what is causing the pain.
Today she has had a great day.

She vacummed the floor and took out the garbage.

She said it is the best she has felt in weeks.

Figures...the day she feels great, why not put her out and do a huge test???

That is where she is now.

Tomorrow is the CT scan.

We are counting down....

3 more treatments left!!!
