Well, with the doctor’s well wishes, Mom has spent the past two weekends down in Fort Myers beach with Denise, Paul and three beautiful grandchildren. Lindsay, the oldest grandchild, was actually celebrating her high school graduation and the weather was amazing this last weekend. My family joined them as well so it made for a wonderful opportunity to have a complete family pic.
Mom had a great time and although some of the medications make it hard to tolerate the hard south Florida sunshine she was able to get out to the beach, play a little volleyball and make the weekend a memorable one.
Treatment Update: Mom is finishing week 5 of 6 now… like a champion. She has had minimal hair loss (as you can see from the picture) and she has felt great. Little nausea and side effects were mainly from some non-chemo medications that they had her on. She is finishing strong and excited about wrapping up her treatments.
What does the future hold? We don’t know but Mom is considering a big fall cruise to someplace fun. Any recommendations from you guys out there??? Alaska? Greece? Aruba?
