My mom is of the "didn't want to bother you" variety. I attribute it to her years of nursing. And being a stubborn female donkey.

I slept very poorly last night, came home today and slept on/off from around 3- now. I'm honestly only up for a short period now and then going right back to sleep. I can't afford to get as run down as I did last time. That's not good for anyone. ( although I think I'm aggravating VR today with all my sleeping). Finding myself feeling overwhelmingly guilty again and prone to burst into tears for no good reason. I'm sure I'm fun to be around right now
I gotta tell you, today was day 4/5 of first round and she is doing worlds away better than the first go round. She feels slightly yuck, but I think going in so much stronger this time has made a huge difference in how she is tolerating it. I realize this is just early days, and it'll get worse before it gets better, but so far it's been easier to cope with for ME at least and I am certain for her as well to some extent.

Back to my regularly scheduled semi nervous breakdown and then onward!

Praying for you both, Sharon. I know I don't need to remind you (ready? here comes that horrible word) BUT, you need to do all you can to reduce the effects of stress on yourself. Mom is getting her care, make sure you get yours.

Well they sprang it on us again! She's coming home tomorrow!!! She will be continuing as an outpatient for awhile. I haven't spoken to the docs directly, so I don't know when/if she comes back to be readmitted, but I'm sleeping over tonight so l will find out in the morning!

I'm guessing it means she's well enough for that, so it's good news I hope.

Like your pic in black and white. Sounds like you're doing well too. Tough situation. Congratulations for your grace under fire.

thanks, im trying. I think it's good news, although I still need to talk directly to the docs to get the full story. I freaking hate sleeping here.

Hospitals have an extremely high occupancy rate. Imagine if they were fun? Comfortable? Economical? The only positive I can see is the good drugs and cute nurses.

Sleep tight.

Be sure and do what you can to take care of yourself. You don't do anybody any good if you get run down. It is tough to take care of yourself when you are focused on taking care of others, but you have to do it. Eat right and rest good when you can.

For what it's worth, I have two things.

1) I will pray for you, and I'll put a card in the basket so my whole church is praying for you and for your family.

2) God doesn't burden us with more than we can bear. If your load is heavy, it's because he thinks you're strong.

All I've got.

Thank you all very much! We are back home, but she will be going back every day or so for labs/transfusions, etc. It's an hour each way, but it still beats having to sleep over!

Sorry to hear that, but I am praying for you. I know that no words can really be a comfort, but I wish you whatever comfort and peace you can have.

Thanks. I guess we will have a good idea in the next few days if this is what's going to take her.
