Good News

Word is that mom is making GREAT PROGRESS!!! Thank you for all the prayers - Mom says she feels all your thoughts and prayers!!!! She has also really enjoyed all the cards and well wishes.

As of today:
  • They Reduced her Pain Medicine
  • They Reduced her supplemental nutrients (since she is eating)
  • SHE has been up walking around her floor several times
  • SHE is getting more color
  • SHE is able to talk more
  • The nurses that were there when she was admitted are saying she is a WHOLE NEW PERSON!!!!

It sounds like she will get chemo on Tuesday (assuming she stays HEALTHY - no cold or other sickness AND if her blood work comes back with the right numbers). It also sounds like they MIGHT send her home next week!!!!


  1. Kara -

    Thank you so much for keeping us up to date. I'm so glad to hear that Barb is doing better. Please add our name to the list of folks that are available to help in any way - meals, housecleaning, laundry, grocery shopping - whatever!

    God bless,

  2. Kara-

    You are doing a great job of keeping everyone informed of Barb's progress-and what wonderful progress it is. I am a former coworker of Barb's and would be happy to help with housecleaning, laundry, and grocery shopping. Meals are trickier, since I live in Healdsburg and work in Santa Rosa. So please add me to the list, and if there is some other need, just let me know. You are an exceptional daughter! No surprise, since you have an exceptional mom.
