Better News and Blessed Relief

Mom's platelets are finally up high enough for chemo. Woo Hoo! She was happy about that! So, come Friday morning, we will be back at UAMS to hurry up and wait for them to do her chemo. She has been complaining of a bit of pain in her lower back and legs. I didn't remember it, but Sister #2 reminded me that is not unusual. We will tell the oncology nurse anyway, just to be on the safe side.

My personal nurse pratitioner has finally found an inexpensive medication that seems to be helping alleviate my back pain. Another Woo Hoo! With only two doses, I feel sooo much better. It is making me a little drowsy, but hopefully that will lessen as time goes on, and if not....well... it's a small price to pay for being pain free. I was beginning to be very unhappy about the pain. It's something I will have to stay on, indefinitely, but at this point, I'm willing to take meds all day long if it will help.

That's great news! I'm sure you all will be glad when your mother's chemo is done.

I'm so glad you're pain-fee! That's awesome. I hope this medicine continues to give you relief.
