Getting Back to Normal

Mom was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon. No surgery, but a higher dose of Lovenox to help prevent more clotting. Dr. Goswami also gave Mom some Lasix to help get rid of the swelling in her face and chest. Her liver is a bit inflamed, which is probably why she's been feeling so much pressure in her abdomen. She will, hopefully, resume chemo this week, and that should help with the inflammation. Her platelets are around 140,000, and the rest of her numbers look good.

Mom has had a bit of a headache since last night, but otherwise she feels good. She's back to work all day today. :) I know she's looking forward to Thanksgiving this year - probably because for the first time in a long time it's not at her house (no cleaning!)!

Thank you for all your cards and hopeful messages. So many great people, many of whom we don't know that well, are praying and sending good thoughts Mom's way. It is an overwhelming feeling to know so many people care.

Please pray that Mom's headache disappears and isn't a bleeding issue, and pray that her bloodwork looks good enough to receive chemo this week.
