I talked to my mom's doctor yesterday and they believe they got ALL of the cancer!!!!! Since she has been doing so well, taking her meds, eating (with the help of an appetite stimulant pill), her head is clearer, and we BEAT the cancer's ass, I have allowed her to go to her apartment at the senior center. I check in on her regularly, as does the nurse and her neurologist. In two weeks, her blood will be drawn by the home health nurse and if it is up to normal again, we can schedule her double knee replacement.
Things are looking so good. I feel like we've crossed a hurdle and gotten my mom back on track. I also feel like I've gotten a piece of myself back by being able to have her back in her apartment for a short while. It gives her some independence and gives me some time outside of the caregiver role.
Anyway, Go MOM!!!! This is THREE TIMES you have kicked cancer's ass. When will it ever learn you aren't one to be messed with? :)
