Spent from midnight Saturday until 10:30 a.m. in the UAMS emergency room with my mother. She was so swollen she couldn't stand it any longer and wanted a miracle drug to ease her up. Enter Morphine and Phenergan. She really felt bad, and wanted to stay in the hospital until today, since she had chemo scheduled, but that pesky insurance thing reared its ugly head. She had to come back home. The pain med she was prescribed for home really knocks her for a loop, but she doesn't care how she feels when it's in her system.
She began chemo to help her symptoms today. We are hoping and praying it makes a big difference and she can get back to her life as she knows it. For the time being anyway.
