WalkerA lot of time has passed and a lot has changed since the last update.   Mom was able to tolerate one chemo treatment but had to stop treatments due to the side effects and the wish to have quality of life.  It’s been almost 2 months since her last treatment and she has been on hospice care at home since stopping treatment.  Last weekend I learned that she had been falling while home alone.  This changed things and we decided she needed someone around at all times.  She also began finally using her walker which helps her quite a bit.  She hates to be a bother and tries to sneak to the bathroom and back without help to avoid “bothering me”, I need you guys to help break her of that.   Thankfully, I have started working from the house, I work for an awesome company – InfoTECH, and when I need to leave we make sure a friend or family member is here.  Thanks guys!

Most of this week has not been good as Mom was in a lot of pain and having trouble keeping what little food she eats down.  Thankfully the last couple days have been slightly better and she has been eating pretty much anything I bring to her.   I have also straightened out all of her pills and keeping them all organized and trying to stay ahead of the pain and nausea.

Big thanks again for all those that help or even just have her in your thoughts and prayers.  We are taking things one day at a time.
