Another mom update

Mom has her good days and her bad days. She began chemo at northwestern on january 4th. She will have chemo once every three weeks for twelve weeks. That's a total of four times in twelve weeks. The day after chemo is not so bad, the following two days she feels very tired. Luckily, there has been no nausea.

A few weekends ago, I took her to get her hair cut. They have said she will definitely lose her hair. I am thinking about shaving gabes head when she does. A few clumps have fallen out already.

Last Friday, she needed to get some fluids. Her sodium and potassium were very low. She can eat all of the salt that she wants! Monday she got a blood transfusion, she was borderline anemic. It helped a lot though! She has seemed to have more energy and not as tired.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support.
