Sorry I didn’t get a chance to post as much today as I have recently. Today was an incredibly busy day; full of visitors. As I mentioned in the previous post, Monica didn’t do as well today as she did yesterday. However, she did finally go to the restroom, so that’s a big praise. She’s still got a ways to go though, but at least she’s heading in the right direction.
Her Mother’s Day wish for this year (before all this happened) was to go to one of those places where you can pick an oyster and make your own jewelry out of the pearl. If she has the strength, we may try to do that still tomorrow. We’ll see. We don’t want her to push herself too much. She needs to have the energy she can for Monday’s appointment with the sarcoma specialist, where she should be starting the trial chemo.
In order to try and get her to rest, we are asking for no visitors tomorrow. It’s Mother’s Day anyways, so everyone will probably be with their families. If you would like to reach out to Monica tomorrow, feel free to post on the Encouragement Guest Book and she’ll read them. The posts are a very good source of strength and encouragement for her.
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day.
