Mom sounded so good on the phone tonight. She was eating dinner and entertaining a small crowd of family visitors. I didn't get much of a report, but I took that as a good sign: she was having too good a time to relate the mundane details of the day.
She has an appointment with the radiation oncologist on Friday morning. We don't really know the details of the skin metastasis; if it will grow, if it means other metastases may happen faster, if radiation will stop the spread or get rid of it completely...we're hopeful that the radiation oncologist will be able to answer all of those questions and help us understand if Mom is a good candidate for more radiation. In the meantime, Mom continues to push herself to eat and exercise and takes delight in all her visitors.
