July 29, 2014

Mom started chemo treatments again today. She had her first round of chemo treatments in Houston. After we moved to Bandera, and she got started with a primary care doctor and an oncologist here- they discovered that the cancer had come back and was also in her brain. We thought we were going for an appointment the end of March, to start chemo then. But it was more important for her to have radiation treatments at that point. She went for radiation treatments- once a day for two weeks, in April. Her hair had come back from the first chemo treatments and the radiation caused it to fall out again. Then she started chemo again today. (The first 6 pics. here are from the radiation, that I missed earlier in the year.) This round of chemo would prove to be too much for her. (She completed 4 treatments- July 29, August 20, September 17, and October 14.) Then she had to stop, because she was too weak to be able to walk or move around on her own. After the treatment in September, she also had a leg infection and a blood clot in her lung- both things a result of immobility and weakness.
