Gee...I re-read my own post and some parts seemed to get cut off!
In short, my mum's cancer return after 9 blissfull month of remission. We are still reeling from the bad news but is hopeful of the future.
Pink, it sounds like you have a very caring oncologist on the team. I do hope this combination will do the trick. My thoughts and prayers are with your Mom.
Hi Pink, I'm really sorry to read this. You mom's new ONC sounds like a good one. I'm glad he is so attentive with the details. That is important. Stay strong and you most definitely have prayers coming your way.
I will be praying for your Mum Pink, Im sorry she has to do battle again. You are both in my thoughts.
Pink, I 'm sorry to hear this news.. but it sounds as though your mom is in really good hands. Let me join with the others in wishing only good things for you and your mom.
Thank you for all your comments. We are trying to put this news aside for a little while. We are celebrating my mum's birthday this Saturday. Hopefully, this time the chemo combination would work.
Hello, Pink. I can certainly understand why your mom is "depressed". She has good reason to be, however, there are lots of good meds out there to help her with that. I really believe that laughter is one of the reasons I am still here.......I looked for things to make me laugh and I mean I looked at and for things that were classy to plain old stupid! I just wanted to laugh and there were times I laughed so hard I had to change my jeans! That helps with depression, too.
Please talk with your mom's onc so he knows how depressed she is.....he needs to perscribe something......it will take at least a month to tell the difference; but, it is definately worth it.
I am so glad your mom has you looking out for her. Make certain you take care of you because if you dont, she will have to worry about you (not taking care of herself) and you won't be able to care for her.
Give your mom my best and take care.
