Not a very good day and my stress level is on the brink of god only knows what? Today is round 2 of chemo for Mom and I love hearing those CA 125 numbers go down. However, that wasn't the case today. The cancer doc had some bad news as her markers painted a different picture than our last victory lap. Although the markers doubled, rather than trippled like last time it was disheartening to hear. To make matters worse after receiving her chemo coctail she developed an alergic reaction to the carboplatin used in the chemo. Although this is common in chemo therapies it does now limit the medications that can be tried here-on. While I attempted to get my second wind, time proved it doesn't stand still. As I waited on the bleachers for Lexi to finish swim lessons; I was making decissions on a gas leak at our new camper, getting the latest hospital updates on my grand-daughter, talking to the county on a potential foster child, and somehow managing to answer the fury of calls that were coming into my phone from all the kids. I've come to the conclusion that I think God is trying to tell me something and its a good thing I'm too busy to have a break down.
