Today was my Mom's first Dr's appointment with her cancer Dr. since being released from the hospital. I don't feel any better. Told her that whatever happened to her would depend on her, her attitude I guess. I thought I would feel better, have some answers. My sister Kathie and my Dad took her, my sister said it went well. He asked my mom if she had any questions, she said No, that she knows what she has and she knows the outcome, guess she thinks everything in between doesn't have to be said. This is a very strong woman. He is adding another morphine patch to her collection, she will now wear 100mg patch and a 25mg patch, along with oral pain meds. as needed. Told her he wanted her to get up every morning, and have my Dad drive her to the mall before the stores open and walk for ten minutes. Hope she can do it. She came home and vomited after that, she made a joke about it! Thanks for listening. Guess the rollercoaster is going back up again. Heartfelt hello's to everyone, hope you all are well.
