Update on mother's chemotherapy...

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Mother's chemotherapy day today was just a quick fifteen minute in and out session for a shot of nulasta.

She does not have chemotherapy scheduled again until the 28th of May.

Today was somewhat better, but, I am still feeling like I am walking on eggshells around her as whatever I say gets twisted around and then gets used to hurt me.

Tonight I was able to go to the bookstore and cash in my books. Though they would not take my e-reader as they claimed it did not have a fully charged battery...what in the hell?.

I had that e-reader on charge all night last night. Anyway, I only made two dollars and fifty cents.

Also I went to the grocery store and got mom another phone card and also some lunch meat and a couple of pink lady apples...all for twenty five needs to start reimbursing me for these phone cards as they are twenty dollars for 120 minutes.

Also I paid for lunch again and that set me back about fourteen dollars. So now, unless I get paid overnight...I only have thirty six dollars to last through the end of May.

And she is telling me she needs incontinence pads for herself.

Those by themselves are eleven dollars and change. Start paying for those yourself, mom.

    So sorry for what you are going through. You mom is ill, and may not be thinking about the financial side of things. If she can afford her phone, food and personal items she should pay for them. If she can't there are places, charities that will help. A neighbor told me that she went to a church and they gave her a $20 biggs card so she could get soap, pads, etc when she was out of work. I'm sorry I don't know which church it was, but the point is that there is help out there.

    Take care of yourself!

    emoticon Keep plugging forward. I know this stress is not easy, and it seems overwhelming, but God does not task us with these things without believing we can handle it, learn from it, and come out of it a stronger person! emoticon

    It might make more sense to get one of those phones from Walmart where you can buy minutes instead of those phone cards, I believe they come with some minutes and then you can buy cards to recharge.
    I'll say a prayer for mom, I'm sure chemo is taking a lot out of her....
