Couldn't Be Much Better

So, I got to talk to my Mom on the phone last night, and again this morning. She sounds fantastic!!! The pain blocking injections really did their job, and she has experienced VERY LITTLE pain. Since the cancer didn't spread to the lymph system, she will not need radiation. Even better than that, pending final confirmation from pathology, the oncologist does not think she will need near as much chemo as expected pre-surgery. Maybe as little as a round every two weeks for two months. Not that chemo is ever fun, but the doctors were originally talking about a combination of radiation and chemo for one to five years. This is SOOOO much better!!!!!

What a difference a day makes!! 8^)

The roller coaster of cancer is exhausting--especially when it's your parent. I've been there. I am so happy you have good news!
