Sweet Momsy.

I am so tired but have so much on my mind.  Life has been busy lately.  Busy changing.  I haven't updated about my mom in a while and thought I should share.  She continues to face challenges following her brain radiation in July.  The doctors expected some memory lapse, weakness, fatigue, and added medications to deal with side effects and keep edema down.  My sweet Momma is dealing with all of those and many more challenges on top of them. 

During a recent Dr. visit the recommendation based on her scans and pathology reports was more chemotherapy.  If she continued with the recommended treatment plan, this would be her 4 time with the whole regime.  And let's just say, for the record, that chemotherapy transfusion is pretty intense.  At this time we know the doctors recommendations are to prolong my moms life but we are pretty certain treatment right now that it will not enhance it.  We are looking into opportunities to enhance her life, keep her pain at bay and spend lots of loving time together.  None of us know what tomorrow holds, today is something to cherish.  Tomorrow, Chloe and I will travel to Temecula to spend a few days soaking up time with Gramsy. 

Keep your prayers and loving peaceful thoughts coming her way.  Our family so appreciates them. 

And just because, it made me smile and because tomorrow is Becky's birthday.  Happy Birthday Becky!   I had to share this adorable picture of my mom and her friend Becky back in their Bible College days.  These two have been friends since the 70's and have shared a bond that keeps going deeper.  There is nothing like true friends.  Aren't their smiles just radiant?  Still are.
