SBP Roller Coaster

Some days are Ms. Chemo and Some days are as Kathleen says, “Slash, Burn and Poison”… Surgery– the original slashing, Radiation burning and chemo… you get the idea.  The last three days were kind of like that.  We did get out for a lovely walk again on Sunday, at Synder’s flats with Orville, but it was a bit far to go.(Pics at picassaweb)  Then yesterday and today have been pretty rough for her breaking out the heavy tools to try and abate the pain and nausea.  She still managed to get the boss level radiation  #1 of #3 today.  A lot of will power, just not a lot of cooperation from her body.

At the bottom of the curve

Two more treatments to go and then a bit of time to catch her breath before the P in SBP starts in earnest.  Hopefully, there will be more days when she is Ms. Chemo than not as she needs to catch a break.

    Hi Kathleen and Mike. It is that one step forward and two steps back scenario. Wish the good days weren’t followed by bad days. You have been amazing at getting through this process Kathleen. We’re very proud of how well you’ve been toughing the surgery and treatment program. You’re well into the process now so keep your energy and positive thoughts flowing. Stay strong. Sending you and Mike both, oodles of postive vibes and gentle hugs. Mike you’ve also been a tower of strength and nursing for Kathleen which has been a big part of helping her through this. Hope to be able to come for a visit sometime soon.
