On Valentine’s Day morning, my Mom’s doctor gave her a Valentine present: she was being released from the hospital!
She’s still very weak, but is responding enough to the chemo, which has shrunk the tumor enough for them to be able to release her from the hospital. She’ll continue getting chemo every three weeks, and if there is more (enough) shrinking of the tumor, they may be able to operate. (Right now, they can’t operate because it’s so large).
I did get to visit her last weekend, and so did my brothers (I have four, all younger than I)–even though it was our mother’s illness that brought us together, it was good to be able to visit with them; I hadn’t seen them in several years, unfortunately.
I know my Mom is much more comfortable being at home; one of my brothers and his wife are staying with her this weekend. I’m hoping to be able to get up there next weekend, and if I can spend spend a few days with her myself.
So please, continue to keep my Mom in your thoughts and prayers–something seems to be working!
