Update on Mom

Mom came home for the weekend and now on her way back to Hershey.  Her counts are starting to come up. She has a spot on her eye they gave her ointment for. I believe it's a side effect of the rejection drugs.  Been having her share of ups and downs.  Once we got over the "loosing her hair again hump" She seemed to be a little better.  She was convinced after almost 2 weeks it wouldn't come out but it was falling out a lot and fast! So they had the nurses shave it off again.  Now she's back to baldness.  She bought herself a couple summer hats.  She gets tired very easily. We had a picnic while she was home and it really did her in.  She wears jackets while we're out because although it's really hot and humid to us, she thinks it's cold.  Probably yet another side effect of all the drugs. 
She has a bone marrow biopsy this Tuesday at 2pm, then a Doc apt at 3pm. We are hoping to know better where she's at and follow up treatments.  And hoping she can come home.  She really hasn't been home (other than this weekend) since Memorial Day Weekend.  But she was at Hershey the week before that.  Keep the prayers coming!!
