Mamasita Update!!!

Guess who's done?
My mamasita!

She didn't get to complete or finish out 12 sessions of chemo because it was just too hard on her body. That was the physician's call; not mom's. She still has some residual effects from the chemo, but we were venturing into territory where the side effects she was experiencing were the very rare ones, and may leave her permanently disabled or worse. So, it was decided that she would get no more after her oncologist conferred with other specialists, other oncologists, and neurologists.

So....that's that.

She's now had her follow up CT: clean & clear!
and the best news of all: She's had her follow up colonoscopy & it was perfect! No cancer, no polyps, no signs of cancer....Zero, Zip, Nada!

I feel like it is done.
It's finished.
The residual is there...
But, it just feels like this is coming to a close, you know?

And she's looking soooo cute!
