Thank you visitors!
Lisa and I had a pizza party on Sat with Grandma and Grandpa Y., Aunt Sam, Jacob and Alex. Today, Aunt Delphine and Uncle Gerald came by and kept us company. And the Holowicki family stopped by and played until early evening. It was nice to have visitors and definitely made the time go by quicker and the day much more pleasant.
Lisa is getting around, but she's not at her normal speed. The "mouth" sores run throughout her GI tract and she is in pain, hasn't eaten for three days and still hard to understand when she talks. She is on a low dose of continuous morphine and when the pain gets really bad we merely press a button to give her an additional dose.
As Mike stated, her counts are still low and until those come back up and she can eat we will be at Motts. There is a chance this can bump her scans out as well as the surgery date....it's just a waiting game until she gets back up to speed.
It's also a bit frightening because this is still the "easy" part of her treatment. Phase II is going to be much more aggressive as we try to beat this cancer. So, we just keep taking it day by day and we pray.
