Reply to "First timer-Mother has lung cancer"

Hey Sister,
Moma went to have her second session of chemotherapy yesterday(consists of three treatments, three days in a row). Her white count is still too low so it was postponed until next week. This is the second postponement. Her right leg is weaker and weaker. Thursday, Friday and Saturday she said she was just too tired to get in the shower so she took a "bird bath". I went over earlier on Sunday and got her in the shower. Her last radiation treatment to the spine was on Wednesday. It is my understanding that they radiated the thoracic areas of involvement in order to help the pain there. I bet they didn't radiate the lumbar (L-1) that showed involvement because there was no "pain" there. I guess the just ignored her constant complaint with her right leg. I wish I could be at these appointments with her. I don't want her to have to make unnecessary trips, etc. Their next move is to get a CT of her right leg. I wonder if it has occured to them at the L-1 involvement and the probability that it is causing her the weakness. Sometimes you just want to shake folks for the way they treat people after they are retired.
That's the latest. Love you all-DEE
