Good news!

Thursday, April 27, 2006

Mother visited her oncologist yesterday & got her reports from her blood work and her CT scan all both came back very positive!!!! It was such great news! She still has to have the chemo & radiation, but I would rather she have to go through it as a preventative measure. I know she was so relieved to hear that everything was clear.

She went out Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday this week - all to the doctor, but I think it was good for her to get up & get dressed and leave the house. Except for going once to each of my sister's homes or the doctor she really hasn't left the house. I hope she'll get out some more between now and May 8th - that's when the chemo starts - to build up her strength some more.

My Grannie is going to stay with her about four days. I am going to try to get over there this weekend sometime to see them both. We're supposed to go deep sea fishing Saturday, but if the forecast stays the same I think they will have to reschedule. We have to call tomorrow to see if they can sail or not. If not I'll go see them Saturday - otherwise I'll have to wait until Sunday!

I left during lunch to go get my nails done, but there was a 30 minute wait so I decided to go another day and just came back to the office for lunch. I tried calling this morning several times, but the phone just rang & rang. No one ever picked up. I asked if something was wrong with their phones, but the girl at the front desk said she didn't know what happened. Who knows!
