You certainly have my prayers for your mother and for you and your family. A roller coaster ride is an absolute perfect description of what we go through. Please stay encouraged and your are a good daughter for supporting her. Stay with us and keep us posted.
Thank you so much. It's the not knowing that get's ya I believe. If there is anyone out there who's markers were really high could ya let me know? Her's are so crazy that's the part I dont truly understand. I just called to Dr and her scans from 6-7 aren't dictated yet but they are sweet people and know me well, so they are going to listen to the dictation then call me back with the chest scan and hip scan. Tomorrow is the day we will talk to the Dr. I will fill you all in. Thanks again for just being here it's nice just to be able to talk about it with someone.
Hi Christa! A big hug to you and your mom. She is very lucky to have you.
Sometimes finding the right dosage and regiment for chemo can be a real guessing game. When I was rediagnosed, I was on weekly chemo. Then my onco decided that my body needed a rest and put me on a regiment of 1x every 3 wks. Like your mom, my counts went sky high. I was placed back on the original every week treatment and my counts remained low. So, hang in there. Your mom's onco may need to try another type of chemo. What is she taking right now?
Please let us know the results of her scan.
BTW..how old is your mom? Also, where does she live? Maybe we have a member (s) that are close to you.
Hugs and prayers to both of you!
