Although Patty enjoyed a few days of good food and conversation, the last few days have been more difficult and trying. Her appetite has throttled back, decreasing her protein ingestion which has lead to a complexity of issues including water retention......funny, 2 weeks ago it was dehydration, now its too much water. It's so easy to take for granted the complex and normal homeostatis in our daily lives.
Given her more tenuous condition, the docs are considering increasing the chemotherapy to every week beginnng 9/22 with one-third the dosage compared to the planned full strength dosages once very 3 weeks. With the continued rebellion of her stomach and liver metastasis, this seems smart to me.
The continued flurry of cards provide Patty with quiet solace and pleasure. Thanks. We have spread the Bhutanese prayer flags across one corner of the room as a constant reminder of the belief in the healing that faith, spirits and positive thoughts can bring. Thanks for all your good will
