Nov. 14 - No real news yet.......

I talked to mom on the phone last night. She's doing well overall. Just general fatigue keeps her down and I don't think she's quite eating the way she should. They've found a medicine that helps her really well with the nausea.

Tomorrow is the CT Scan. She's worried she won't be able to drink the barium, or at least keep it down. Providing she does, we'll go to see Dr. Dayton on the 29th for the results.

I pray every day it's good news. I was reading a post on the Lung Cancer Alliance Survivor's Community about a woman who's condition sounded almost exactly like mom's. Her name is Stella and she's 42 years old. Her lung cancer had metastasized in her Liver and Lymph Nodes too. She had gone through the same regimine as mom (Carboplatin, Taxol, Avastin) and after four rounds of Chemo, her cancer was completely gone! I know everyone's cancer is different, but this truly is hope that what they are doing for mom is going to work! Here is the link to her post.

Hi Tammi,

I pray for her every day too. I heard the other day she actually ate an entire bologna sandwich and she was so proud! I pray that she is completely healed. I heard you won't be here for Thanksgiving cause you have to work. We will miss you. I will let the big boys take good care of Devin. NOT!!! Hope to see you soon. I can't wait to see Aunt Judy. I love her so much. She always makes me smile. Take care and if you need anything, give me a call. Love you.
