It took 10 days of radiation to do what 10 months of chemo didn't do. Make my mom look sick. When I saw my mom this weekend, the only thing I thought was...Damn. She looks like she's sick. And, the damn radiation makes her sick. Friday and Saturday were bad days. She really couldn't keep any food down. And, she's losing her hair. We're shaving it this weekend. I think. It sucks.
But...we're a year into this thing and today is Thanksgiving. Mom's hosting dinner - it was originally supposed to be 10 people but somehow we got up to 20. I'm so thankful for my whole family and for this year with Mom.
