After doing a full body scan and thankfully not finding anything, the doctor still felt that they should be proactive about the treatment and start chemo and radiation therapy to fully eliminate any trace of it. She's been through 1 treatment since and every 21 days, another one - ongoing for a total of 18 treatments. She has started losing some of her hair, so yesterday, DH and one of my SILs went over and helped her do a clean shave.
I decided not to go b/c 1) I would break down and start crying and 2) I thought that something so personal should be shared with her children.
DH came home in a bit of a numb state and said that he was ok- but I know he is just trying to be strong for everyone.
I am scared and worried but I am also hopeful that these treatments will help eradicate this horrible thing and she will be in remission for a long long time.
I know I've asked a lot of you all to pray for me and lil' bean already but please keep my MIL in your prayers too. She is such a strong woman and even though these treatments will run her down physically, I pray that her fight and passion for life will remain strong.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
