28 Feb Into 4th round, and responding well!
Mom is in her 4th round of chemo and is responding really well! She has little to no adverse effects of the chemo. Last week she had a call with her oncologist who confirmed a new CT scan shows cancer receding- mass in kidney has shrunk and kidney function is back to normal, lesions in liver and lungs are shrinking, affected lymph nodes are back to normal size. She will continue her current medications until she starts to experience ill-effects or scans show the cancer is no longer shrinking.
Mom’s need for care has dwindled and she is preparing her own meals and taking care of herself without assistance! She has made several trips out for shopping and had a walk to Trident, for the first time in months!
We are so thrilled at mom’s improvements and feel it is a direct reflection of all the love and support she received when she needed it most. Even in her newly regained autonomy she still loves to receive visitors so please check the care calendar and sign up if you can!
