July 18, 2010 joycepsouth

Mom has had a very good week.  We are now only on 18 hours of tpn.  She went to church for the first time today since Easter!  We can tell each day she is getting stronger and stronger.  She is staying by herself most of the day.  We pop in and help with meals, bath, and connecting the tpn.  I was talking with mom last night and we were talking about all the changes that has happened to her lifestyle, but still there are so many blessings.  Too many to name – but two that I realize often is the fact that mom sleeps so well, her skin has stayed healthy with being in the bed for so long — she has a great attitude and is appreciative of everything you do for her.  Really exciting new — is that her ostomy is working great now – we are so thankful that we were able to find a pouch that works well for her.

Dr. report — we went to the oncologist this week.  He thinks that chemo would do mom more harm than good at this point.  The dr will assess some of the tests she has had recently, and if there is nothing out of the ordinary, she will not have further procedures for her colon cancer.  The surgeon got clean margins around all that was removed, the concern was that she had two of eighteen lymphnodes with cancer cells.  But we feel that this is the right thing for mom and that the Lord’s hand has been with her each step of the way.  Our thanks to the many prayer warriors that have covered her with prayer.  Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!!!
