Not much to report today. Mom is sleeping a lot. I am working today and Sister #1 is with her. I'm hoping Mom will try to get up and walk more today so we can take her home soon. My prayer is Friday. The nurse is going to teach me to draw blood so I can take care of Mom's weekly lab requirement for the doctor. Chemo will be every three weeks at UAMS.

When we do get her home, it looks like I will be staying at least every other day/night for two weeks. She must have 24/7 care for that period of time if not longer. Please pray that we can work out a schedule we can all live and work with. I don't have to tell you how hard it is to do this and work too. It's impossible to do it without missing some work. I am thankful my boss is very understanding and has told me to take what I need. (I just don't get paid of course ;)
I'm also having some personal issues right now. I won't go into it, but suffice it to say that I need an extra dose of peace and a great deal of wisdom.

I can go draw her blood if you need me to! I know you will be down to see her every week anyway, but I do not mind running out there to draw it for you!!!

I've been wanting to take daddy up there, but I've been sick with strep throat/mono this week and I didn't want to run the risk of giving it to her. :-(

Oh Chelle! What a sweet offer. I may have to take you up on it. I'll let you know. Roll every other week into your mind. If I can't draw it, she can come to the clinic in the alternating weeks without much trouble. That would save her some time and effort. I'm concerned about how her veins will react to the chemo and I'm afraid I might not be able to draw if they roll or begin blowing easily.
