Yes, its time for another round of Chemotherapy for my mom who is fighting for her life with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. She was admitted to the hospital today and will stay a minimum of five days.
It is possible (hope, hope, hope) this could be her final round of chemo before her team of Doctors affirm that she is in full remission.
It does not mean however that life just goes back to what she once knew as 'normal'.
Sharon will continue regular visits to Dr. V, maintain her Hickman line, and be continuously aware of her blood counts and overall health.
Living in remission is better than the contrary (at the time of her diagnosis she was given approximately 2 weeks to live) but even so she will experience a time of transition as she navigates a 'new normal'.

I so appreciate the support that so many of you have blessed me with during this difficult time with my mom. Your prayers, words of encouragement, and listening ears have been significant in my life. Thank you.
