Mom's going back on chemo tomorrow
« on: October 30, 2014, 08:32:12 am »
So after a few weeks of rest, Mom will spend her Fridays getting chemo. This time, she's likely going to be part of a study that includes a new drug, to test the effectiveness of that combined with standard chemo vs. just the standard treatment. The side effects look like a mix of what she got last time and some stuff that's more worrying. I know they'll stop treatment the instant they learn she's not reacting well, but I still worry. Just wanted to ask if people could offer prayers and good vibes during this rather nail-biting treatment.
I love a good metallurgical take on the phrase "What the F---?"

:cf::cf::cf: that this treatment proves to be effective for her, with minimal side effects.
