Today was my mom’s second day of Chemo. The plan today was to do only one of the chemo treatments (the same as last week). Last week she had a small reaction to the chemo and they had to stop it and continue very slowly. Unfortunately, this week she had a bad reaction. The nurses immediately stopped the chemo and after discussing the situation with the Doctor decided not to continue. She will meet with her Oncologist tomorrow in Ruidoso to come up with Plan “B” that includes a different type of Chemo.
On a lighter note my mom was glad to have the company of her sister Suzanne during her Chemo. My mom got a new itouch to keep her occupied during her treatments she can listen to music, play games, and watch movies while relaxing in a Lazy Boy. Below are pictures of my mom all cozy in her chair, with her wonderful nurses Paula and Karen (they are wonderful!) As you can see Aunt Suzanne also enjoyed the Lazy Boy chair with snacking and napping. :-)
