Back At It

I just talked to Mom. Her appointment to see Dr. Dy was at 11:00 a.m.. By 1:20 p.m., she was finally in a room  to see him. He agrees that the medicine causing Mom's reactions could be Zoloda, Tarceva, or Lovenox. He suggested going back on both chemo pills today, as she may not have a reaction this time. We are praying that Lovenox isn't causing the problems, as it is the only blood thinner that can be detected and/or tested using the Anti-Xa test. We are also praying that the reactions occurring last week will not reoccur this time. If a reaction does occur, Dr. Dy thinks it will be similar to last week, in that it will likely be limited to hives.

Mom is getting her IV chemo drug, Gemszar, now, but she will probably be in Effingham until the clinic closes, as they are extremely busy today.

All-in-all, good news. Keep your prayers coming. :)
