So Mom was not able to get her chemo yesterday – but that’s ok. She will try again on Monday. Her nurse coordinator, Amanda, explained to me that 72 hours or so won’t make a difference in terms of cancer growth, and that made me feel a little better. She also said Mom’s body really just needs a break right now and this is the time for her to rebuild her strength. Props to Amanda for being our angel for two years now!!

Mom sounded good when I talked to her today. She’s been eating well and resting and letting people take care of her. It never ceases to amaze me that I have never heard her indulge in self-pity, not even once. She is incredible.
