So, mom is over right now and explaining what happened last night. First off, the bastards at the ER (which is the worst ER in the area but it's where her oncologist is based) couldn't get blood from her port, fucking idiots, and kept digging around in it. Anyway, on to the important things.
No pneumonia, no chest infection, blood work is fine, urine is fine, must just have been a small virus.
Today her oncologist is checking her tumor markers. In the ER, the night she was diagnosed, they were 175. Normal is 0-30.When she started chemo they were over 800. Mom has been praying for her tumor markers, today, to be normal. I'm hoping and praying for 800. Actually, I'm praying for them to be 0, but that ain't gonna happen.
Sissy was tested for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 breast cancer mutation gene. We all go in on the 8th to get the results but her onc should have them already and if she is positive (duh) then it is my understanding that there is another drug they can add to her chemo cocktail that targets the mutated genes to help "control" them. We'll see.
Mom is having a REALLY rough day today so please pray for faith, strength and patience for her. She also asks God continually for joy and love. Mom is the most amazing person and I'm so thankful for her.
