Reply to "First timer-Mother has lung cancer"

Moma saw the oncologist yesterday. I could not believe my ears when Moma told me that she was going back to the 20mg pain medicine instead of the 80mgs, she told the doctor the 80mg cost $475.00 and she was going to try to 20mg/5mg dosage again. Low and behold I was over their a few minutes ago and she was reclined in the chair and you could tell she was in pain. I asked her what she had taken and she said the 20 mg. I told her not to fool around with her pain and let it get ahead of her medicine and she kinda put me off by saying she was feeling much better 15 minutes later. Last night when I went to help her bath, she had some ulcerated looking rash under her breasts on the underside of her breasts, on her lower abdomen and several little spots of it on numerous places. She hadn't noticed it, I told her to show the radiation therapist(I guess that is what they're called)the rash and have them address the problem. Money is just not that much of an issue on the short term. I'm sort of upset, WELL I AM UPSET, that Daddy would allow her to change medicine from one that is clearly helping on the basis of money. I did call hospice and they said as long as Moma was receiving chemotherapy that Medicare wouldn't pay for hospice care. PLEASE PRAY TODAY that this gets turned around in the right direction before I go back over there tonight. Thank you all for responding to me, the only person I can talk to at this moment is a 3 year old boy who is presently calling Granny!
God Bless You!
