some nausea and illness

Hello quick update. Mom wasn't feeling well today while I was at work around 3pm...then she ate a very small dinner and subsequently threw it up.

Anyway it's OK at the moment, she has a doc's appt. tomorrow for treatment which is good. I don't like it when it happens but I like that we can get to a doc sooner rather than later.

There isn't cause for alarm just yet, we've decreased her nausea meds a great deal per the doctor's orders but I guess we'll have to increase them again, even though it causes her to have shakes. Oh well, trembling mom is better than a sick mom.

I'll let you all know what the doctor says tomorrow.

Round 3 Cycle 3

This Friday mom will have her 3rd round of Chemo for her third cycle. After this Cycle in early May a CT scan will reveal her progress. The family and I are very anxious to see the results.

So far she's continuing her progress. Her shakes are minimal because the anti-nausea medication's been dialed way back. This past weekend she went to a Pohela Boishak party Sunday (Bengali New Year--Indian Bengalis and Bangladeshi Bengalis all celebrate this holiday).

Last week, however, the scale showed she lost two pounds. She wasn't too happy about it but we'll get back up there.

I will post an update again after the CT evaluation in the first week of May.
