Thanks for asking about Aunt Suzi. She has had 5 chemo treatments so far. She does feel sick on the 2nd or 3rd day afterwards. Nothing serious. Her red blood count has been low. The doc said if it's still low on monday, they are going to do a blood transfusion. In the meantime, he gave her an injection of something to help build it up. But, it takes about 2 weeks to work, I guess. Suzi is nervous about getting "someone else's blood". Also, her pain is now in her back. So it goes from front to back. It has been pretty bad at times. Her doc gave her a different pain medication with morphine. Hopefully, it helps. Otherwise, she seems to be doing OK, considering. She is concerned about not knowing how she is suppose to feel through all this. She doesn't know what is "normal" with PC. I think she is scared of not knowing what the future holds. As far as the progression of this disease and how much pain she will suffer. She has read material from doc and me and from her sister. Reading and talking about this is so much different than experiencing it on your own...Thanks again for asking about my wonderful aunt. God Bless...
