Your mom looks and sounds like an incredibly tough woman. No doubt in my mind that she's going to give cancer a swift kick in the butt.

Thanks Lucy. This is my weekend to take care of my mom (The worst of her days) She started Chemo on Monday and it takes up to a week for the Chemo to kill fast growing cell's in her body. She's only getting worse as the days go, So I relieved my aunt (Mom's sister) Yesterday so that she could go back to Illinois where she is from. So far I think im doing good, haha

Moms facebook status this morning. haha

Daniels first night babysitting his mommy, I have to admit, he did a great job, these were his concerns and how he thought we should handle them,
1. My shower, he was scared I would pass out and he would have to come in and see me naked, wait problem solved he would just send Eli (My little 10 year old brother) in.
2. Me getting up, passing out, and falling, he figured I could curl up in the pack n play just fine.
3. Dying in my sleep, he told me not to do that, if I did he would call Alan(My older brother), Alan could come down and check on me, and figure out that I died.
Well it's never dull no matter what the circumstances.
Love you.

Mom wanted to lose her hair on her terms, so we all had our heads shaved for her. Me and my son, My mom and My little brother, Eli on the right. (Carson didn't need his hair trimmed )

Dan, you really are the man. You guys are awesome. Clearly doing a great job to help support your Mom through all this. Keep up the great work. Between all the love you're giving her and the amazing spirit she obviously has, I know she'll be just fine. We'll keep thinking about you guys, I promise.

I'll keep everyone updated as she goes. Her first Chemo treatment is still kicking her butt a bit. Shes lost 8 pounds in the first week of treatment. Still having cold and hot flashes most of the day. 2nd treatment of chemo is on the 6th of Oct. so we will see how bad she gets with this one.

Chemo sucks Dan, that's the hardest part. It'll take a toll on her body. Just stay strong for her. Keep your head up dude.

Nothing like the phone call from my 10 year old brother saying moms got 102 temp and passed out. at ER now. Keep in mind 100 temp can be deadly let alone 102.

Well they are keeping her til Sunday. Oncologist is going to get a ear full when my mom gets to feeling better. Oncologist told her to keep calm and take her normal meds and she would be fine. If she thought she needed to come in she could but was not recommended. THE DOCTOR at the ER tonight said if she didnt come in when she did she would not be here tomorrow.... Going to bed now, im exhausted.

Plenty of prayers coming your way. If you do not feel comfortable with your doctor, get another one. Not all medical personnel are created equal from a skill and/or compassion standpoint.
