So mom has shingles. She works in ob/women's health, so the had to take her off work for at least a week. Poor mom! Now the good news. The scan that she had on Friday she had some shrinkage. She will get all the results at the Dr tomorrow. But some shrinkage is better then none right!

    I've only had a mild case of shingles, but I remember how painful it was, so my heart and my prayers go out for your mom.

It's good to hear the scan showed some shrinkage; I hope all the results bring positive news!

Mom is super tired! But on the good side her Iron was up today. Bad side..she has some kind of strange rash and her port was clogged. They got the port unclogged and that is cool. She is just watching the rash for now. The only thing she knows she did dif was a lotion. So she has stopped using that for now. She goes for her PET scan tomorrow. I will let you know how that turns our.

So I shaved moms head, but she did not like the wigs. She is doing scarfs and hats. She looks really cute. She is still doing pretty good. Very tired! Now she is getting Iron shots once a week and taken 3 iron pills a day and it is still too low. Last blood work showed a big drop in red and white blood cells. She has another blood draw on the 16th and they said they might have to gave her blood. She is not happy about this at all. The 17th she has another scan done.

I am going to try and get some pic posted this weekend. I will try and sneak one of mom in! LOL
Thanks guys!

    I did not like wigs either when I lost my hair to the chemo I had 11 years ago; I was also more comfortable with scarves.

I occasionally have to have blood transfusions with the chemo I am on now when my blood counts get too low, but I usually feel better the next day after I have had one, so if your mom does need one, I hope it really helps to perk her up.

Sending up prayers for her. emoticon

Mom is all moved in! We had a very nice Christmas and she has her room looking really nice. She is getting ready to start her second round of chemo tomorrow. She is doing really well. So far the worst thing has been how tired she gets. She noticed yesterday that she was starting to lose her hair. We have some wigs that she is going to try and use. A lady at work gave them to her.
I think that tomorrow I will have her old house cleaned! My vacation has been very busy!!!!

    You are so sweet to take you Mom in, and your co-worker is a sweetheart for giving her the wigs. I hope she is still doing pretty good. Give your Mom a hug for me!! emoticon
