Wow ...I have quite a few things bouncing around in my head today, and yet nothing that I particularly wish to write about.

Mom woke up feeling pretty ill today, and she wasn't feeling particularly well yesterday either. She finished this cycle of chemo Thursday night, so it's a bit odd that she only started feeling sick after she finished the cycle. This particular drug hasn't given her much trouble ...it's been better on her blood counts than the previous regimen, but she's not really taking an effective dosage either.

It's a bit of a long story, but when she first started it there was a bad reaction that turned out to be an interaction with another drug she was on at the time. The oncologist reduced to the lowest possible dosage and remarked that she had doubts that the lowered dosage would even be effective. On the plus side, for the first two months the cancer numbers dropped considerably so she never upped the dosage. On the minus side, we only got two months of reduction, and they've been steadily rising since. Depending on what this next weeks blood tests show, it's very probable that something is going to need to change. Either up the dosage, try another chemo (there is one alternative that only passed the FDA around the end of last year), or stop treatment. I don't see the last one happening.

I don't think that many would really characterize me as a pessimist, but I can't say as I'm overly optimistic either. I don't tend to overthink things too much, but I do almost always try to prepare myself for the worst.

Okay, I think that's all the time I'm going to give myself on this line of thought *ick*. I think I shall go clean the kitchen and see what I can get out of that.

I admire you for cleaning out the kitchen. I would probably be doing shots or taking a nap, which I'm about to do, even though my kitchen desperately needs to be cleaned.

It sound like you are a realist, and there's nothing wrong with that.

I've been a bit lazy in the kitchen since Mom had the fall; since she's one-handed now, the menu options are a bit different for at least a little while (plus I also have people bringing food more often), so I had a bit of catching up to do.

Not a thing in the world wrong with being realistic ...and Mom has lived longer than anyone expected initially. Sometimes I can't help but to think the other shoe is getting ready to drop anytime though.
