Wednesday October 13th, Mom went into the hospital for her regular outpatient treatment. Very quickly the doctors and nurses noticed that Mom was not herself, she was very quiet. They were so worried that they put the chemo on hold and called Rob to come to the hospital. They started running tests and admitted Mom to "T-15" the Leukemia and Bone Marrow Transplant inpatient unit, where she stayed for five days. The medical team spent Wednesday and Thursday trying to figure out what had caused the significant change in Mom. They were worried because Mom was not 'presenting' normally. Internally, Mom knew something was wrong but did not know what, she felt as though she was fighting a battle in her mind. Ultimately the doctors ruled out all physical causes of illness and have determined that it was related to the chemotherapy. The drugs created a chemical imbalance in Mom's brain. It has taken Mom eight days to begin to feel normal again, and she has quite a journey ahead of her. The doctor's will not start chemotherapy again until they are sure that Mom's body and mind can handle it. Please continue to keep us in your prayers and continue to pray for Mom's healing. We have so appreciated your love and support on this journey.
