6 radiation, 2 chemo
She has had a pretty good week. The ointment the doctor prescribed for the radiation burn (Silvadene) seems to be providing her some relief. I would like to think it looks worse than it feels....but I know that's not true. Mom never complains - she has been so tough during all of this.
The chemotherapy really impacts her white and red blood cells. They draw blood each week before her infusion to check the levels. This week, they felt her red blood cells were too low - so she had a transfusion yesterday. This should give her a boost, helping with her fatigue and energy. Once again, we met a new group of wonderful medical professionals - this time the group of nurses at the Same Day Surgery Center at the Queen.

Have a wonderful weekend,
