Saw the doctor with mom…Was prepared to talk to him about whether or not the chemo was working, and if it wasn’t working-why was she going to keep getting beat up with it. And guess what?!?! Great visit. He says her blood work has not shown blast cells since starting this new chemo. And she can start it next week IV instead of as subcutaneous injections. So it should be easier to tolerate. He also says that he couldn’t be happier with the response so far. One more round of chemo then a bone marrow biopsy again.
So….welcome to my roller coaster. Was walking into this visit thinking that we’d be talking about why this chemo wasn’t working (because of some of the comments dad’s been making related to the visits they’ve been attending together), and wind up elated with what I hear. But again…trying to remain calm and steady through it all. Don’t want to keep riding this roller coaster of emotions.
Awwwww, who am I trying to kid – I think there is a celebration in our near future. Thank you God!
