Chapter 2: Day 6 of Chemo


Good Morning and Happy Mother’s Day!

Sorry there was no update yesterday, I was given meds for the non-stop hiccups and had a fever, which knocked me out from 10 a.m. until 7 this morning. I was able to see a few blurry minutes of the Lakers beating the Nuggets though! The doctors have just informed me of a small infection in my left lung. They attribute that to me being Neutrapenic (unable to fight off infections), and they will keep an eye on it. Hopefully antibiotics will take care of it. This whole situation can be very overwhelming, but I’m more overwhelmed with how truly blessed and honored I am to have such  great family and friend support! Hug your mom today and thank her for the life she gave you.
