Feels so bad for my mother...

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

For two days now all mom has done is try to eat.

And everything that she tries to eat or drink (even water) just comes right back up. She has tried so hard to stay strong emotionally also, but, today all she has done other than sleep and vomit is to lay down and cry or sit up, vomit and cry.

Her hair is gone now. That happened after the second week of treatment and for me...it is so sad to see her without hair...as that was part of her identity.

I am wondering if I should shave my head during my next haircut...as a show of support for her?.

Also I am worried as she says and I have seen in the past several days that even though she is still able to function...she says now that when she uses the bathroom upstairs...that she believes her kidneys are in trouble because when she urinates she says it feels as though she has to go a lot...but, then she only actually goes maybe a drop.

Should I call her oncologist tomorrow as this just keeps happening?. She does not have chemotherapy for two more weeks.

    If your mom is having trouble peeing when she feels she has to go -- call the doctor right away. It's really important; it can be a sign of serious problems. I hope and pray she will feel better. Have you asked about anti-nausea medication? That REALLY helped my friend when she had chemo.

    My prayers go out for you and your Mother. I went through similar things with my Mother 2 1/2 years ago. It is so hard to see them in pain and miserable and not be able to do anything to stop it. I would call the oncologist about anything you have questions about.
