Well mom's appointment didn't bring us the wonderful news we were hoping for in fact quite the opposite actually. We discovered that even the 4 aggressive weeks of chemo didn't hardly make any change in her condition and her spleen is enlarged so much that it's pushing on her lungs. Her doctor who by the way is fabulous and very kind seems to think the best solutions is a technique called radioimmunotherapy which is a long name for the utilization of radiation with antibodies. It's a very involved and complicated treatment. Mom took it rather well all things considered. All I wanted to do when the doctor said there had been no change was to burst into tears and scream and cry and blame God. But I knew I had to be strong for mom so the minute I dropped her off safely at home and got back in the car I tried to let the tears fall and they wouldn't come I feel nothing but numbness at the moment. Please continue to pray for my mom and her doctors. Her team lead is Dr. Bose and he's really nice.
In other much more upbeat news I received my very first blog award. I feel so honored I'll be posting about that but probably not until tomorrow I need to take my evening to process the day.
