Current mood:happy On Monday the decision was made to stop chemo for Harriett. After the four days in the hospital and then a couple more falls once she got home again, we had a doctor appointment with her oncologist. The bottom line is: When chemo is doing more harm than good, you stop. This could be a temporary stoppage, or it could be the end of treatment all together. With Harriett's weight down so far, her dizziness and passing out, her lack of strenght to even get out of a chair or into bed, leads me to think that she will probably not resume treatment. However..... As the teapot was beginning to whistle on the stove this morning, Harriett rose from her chair and walked to the kitchen to make her cereal. Seriously... she could not have done that without assistance yesterday. Around 11:30 she asked me if I would bring her a Boost (nutrition supplement drink). She never asks for food - we almost have to force her to eat the little bit she does. For these two small things I am very very thankful. There is no question that this cancer is not curable. But if Harriett can perk up enough to enjoy these holidays even a little, I will be so thankful. The best holiday we've had together since Harriett has been part of our household is the one my brother and his wife joined us in Utah, 2005. They are joining us for the holidays again, this year. Even when things are bad, there is still thanks to be found! Happy Thanksgiving!!
