Needing help...

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Mom returned to the rehab center today after dinner out with our neighbors who is also mom's cousin and his wife. She has her first appointment with the oncologist tomorrow morning at 11am down by Bethesda North Hospital. Will try to update either face book or
erlytroxell tomorrow evening so stay tuned for updates...Also not having dealt with an oncology appointment in 6+ years, what kinds of questions do I need to ask?.

    There are so many kinds of cancer so without knowing anything about your Mom's I can't really suggest too many questions to ask. I lost my Mother cancer a little over 2 years ago. I was constantly frustrated by the fact that her doctor would not give us any kind of timeline or let us know what to expect and by the time he put in a referral to hospice it was too late. I hope you have some sort of support while you are dealing with this. My prayers will be with you and you family.

    My prayers will be with you. I always take notes for later on. I would ask about her comfort. What Ii can do to help her? How many treatment? What can we expect? Any alternative med or massage? My mom liked me to rub her hands and feet after treatment. My mom and I had a bucket list. We would try to do something special every 2 weeks.
