Day 6 & 7...

These past few days have been hard. I'm not sure why. But I've been on the verge of tears the past two or three days.

Mom has been very tired lately. She says she thinks it's because of all the physical therapy they have her doing, being woken up all times during the night and not getting a good nights sleep. A case manager from the rehab hospital called me the other day and asked if mom was really coming home to my house. I said she was and she will be released tomorrow. A nurse called with Home Health and said mom will be getting five days a week of therapy for the first two weeks, then three days a week for the next four weeks.

I think mom is excited to be here and I'm happy to have her!! I do still need to go get Bella from moms house.

Today (day 7), mom told me her doctor said the nausea she's bern having is from the liver. I cried after we hung up. I feel so hopeless to make her feel better. I feel like I'm not doing my job as a daughter, but how can I fight her cancer? I don't know what to do.

She rested much of today and sounded so good when I talked to her. I hope she will recover faster once she gets here. The hardest part is seeing her so worn out and exhausted laying in bed tired with no energy. I am aware that when she starts her treatments it will more than likely be more of that. But she hadn't started then yet and I just want her to be the way she used to be.

April call the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. They may give you additional info and they are so very kind. I work for an ENT doctor and you would be surprised how many nice patients have dealt with them. Keep me posted.
