One day at a time

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

Not much new since the last post. Ron's mom continues to make strides after her surgery. I thought it might be easier to take a post from Barb's CaringBridge site that Ron keeps up.

Hello all-

My apologies for not updating for the past couple of days, we have had a few ups and downs. On Monday we met with Mom’s oncologist and found out that the cancer was in a larger area than they originally thought, so it is very likely that she will have radiation and chemo again. We are all trying to stay positive and as I have said before, we are just taking it one day at a time. Right now we are just focusing on her getting her chest tubes out and getting stronger so we can move on from there.

The good news today is that Mom finally got moved into a regular room! They took her off the medicine that was keeping her blood pressure up and she did fine on her own. If you would like to stop by or if you would just like to give her a call, she is now in room 8868. I will update again when there is more news.
