Thanksgiving is over and was tasty to say the least. We are very thankful we can gather together and enjoy each other. We are also thankful we are free to worship as we please without fear of death. A lot of that going around, so I hear on the news. Man! How blessed are we????
I am also thankful today, because Mom is finished with chemo. Her CT Scan was clear, her C-125 lab is normal, her pelvic exam was normal, so....drum roll please.........
She is in REMISSION. Thank you God. The only disappointment to Mom, was that because her blood counts have been so low, she is not a candidate for the research study we were told about a couple of months ago. But, she has done so well, she didn't have her last treatment. Her platelets still weren't high enough, but, the doctor was all smiles, and said it wasn't a necessity now. Her labs will continue to be monitored, and she will follow up in two months with the doc, but no more worrying about if and when she will be able to take treatment!
Also, although it sounds kind of "yucky" for a lack of a better word, Nurse practioner's grandbaby actually had a bowel movement. That is major stuff considering they were concerned about his bowels and the tear he developed. He continues to be very puffy from retaining fluid, (still on dialysis) but he's doing better. The "poop" is encouraging.
