So thankful that she's been able to really enjoy the last couple of months since she went off the last chemo that was causing her so many side effects and praying that whatever she has to go on now won't make her as sick as the last drug. I suspect that at some point she'll decide for quality over quantity of life since that last drug really made her miserable and she wasn't able to enjoy her days much. Hard to even think about.
Hope your mom's meds don't make her too sick. Cancer is terrible. I have a friend who is on the road to recovery from her cancer.
And I have an uncle who's at death's door. We're hoping he can make it to Thanksgiving because that's when my folks can go up to visit him. But if not, we understand and hope he's not in too much pain.
He's a strong guy. He's USAF Retired
