While mom’s days have been pretty full lately, there has not been a lot of news to post. She has a daily routine of leaving the nursing home and heading over to the UW for radiation treatments to shrink the tumor in her pelvis and hip. I am not sure that we have seen a real benefit to this yet but the goal is to reduce the size of the tumor and thus the pain that it causes mom.
She also officially began her first 28 day cycle of Revlimid yesterday. This is mom’s first chemo treatment for the cancer since November and we are starting cautiously to see how mom responds to the drug.
She has been in very good spirits overall, although the daily routine is pretty taxing and tires her out. She has had a few visitors lately and is always excited to see anybody that is in the Seattle area.
