cancer checkup to Feb. 6, 2014

Mom’s cancer treatment update from her doctor came with pretty good news.  There is a small growth in the main tumour.  It apparently wasn’t significant and didn’t show up on X-ray – only the CT scan.  She will not continue with chemotherapy medication (the pill form).  The doc said it was entirely up to her and that, should she want to continue in a couple of months, she could.  But, for now, she doesn’t want to.  Too many side-effects – rash, limited eating schedule, etc.
