Chemo this week!

We had a nice time on Sunday and went into church for the 9:00 a.m. service. Everyone was very happy to see her. Pastor Bill was there (the one who came to the hospital) and he gave a good Easter talk with a lot of humor in between. Scotty even got up which was a feat because I know he only got a couple hours of sleep. He wanted to see his Grandma.

Mom went in for an appointment today with Dr. Mullin to see how her anti-coagulating is going and to talk about the next steps. She had an INR of 1.6, so not quite where he wants her to be (between 2-3). There will be lots of blood monitoring when she starts chemotherapy.

Speaking of chemotherapy, she has an appointment on Wednesday at Dr. Porubcin’s office to discuss the treatment and what drugs they will be using, so that on Thursday she will be able to start chemotherapy FINALLY. Sounds like they will be prescribing a couple of things to curb the side effects as well.
