It's been awhile since I had an update on my mom. She had a very nice break from chemo recently. I think it was from Easter until last week. Obviously that was amazing! She had tons of energy, was able to go on shopping trips (yeah!), visit friends and start a cool hobby (I'll tell you more about that in a minute).
As far as treatment goes, she is going to be having radiation Monday thru Friday for six weeks. Yep, everyday for six weeks. Every Thursday she will also have a small treatment of chemo. There may be some side effects from the radiation, but we are trying to stay positive and not think about those. Luckily, the treatments are very quick and she is home from northwestern by 8:30 every morning.
The new hobby she started is making these adorable stuffed animals called, Beans. (her nickname is bean). She already has a few happy customers and would love to have many more! You can always contact me if you're interested.
