Update on life

Just briefly, because I am very tired......

There was ironic good news today, in that the chemo did indeed shrink the lung tumors....as it was hoped

The bad news is that there are now 8 lesions in her liver that weren't there in February

These are likely secondary colon cancers and as such, I don't know if they are treatable

Will know more on that tomorrow when the CEA markers come back

Other good news was that swollen left leg was not a clot, but is lymph related, most likely still related to the earlier bowel surgery where some lymph nodes were removed......or something, that's as good a guess by all concerned as anything at this stage...

So, we go back in a month, after she has some more recovery time from the chemo and stuff that's gone on in the last two weeks, and god knows what they will want to do, or what she will allow.....that would all depend, it'd have to be something pretty impressive promised to get her on chemo again I think....

On other fronts, the business sale that was all but wrapped up is far from it....the dickhead supposedly buying is being a pain in the arse and will soon be told to get stuffed if he doesn't watch it........another reason I have been so frustrated.

So, yeah.......I dunno........still

Wry smile.........

Difficult to know what to say. Yippeee for the good news, obviously, but so sorry to hear about the downside. I'm not going to say more in case I get trite. Just every blessing to you both.

I guess it's upto your mum to decide if chemo is worth it or if she would rather live the rest of her life free from the side effects of chemo and maybe have a better quality of life.
It sucks :(
Hope the sale goes through QUICKLY!

Sorry you're coping with so much crap...I've got an Italian friend who often lifts her hands palms upwards, eyes looking skywards and says 'What cannaydo!'...often quite apt...

Michelle,
My thoughts are with you and your mum. I know some of the things you are going through..It is hard,
we love them and then there are times we are so angry because we have put our lives on hold and then we feal guilty for having those thoughts. You take care of your self and I pray that you can have some moments just for you.
Also my prayers go to your mum also.
