One Week Post Chemo

Today marks the first week post chemo. Mother is looking like she feels better. The appointment with her surgeon went well. He said she is healing nicely and would see her in three weeks. He told her he thought she looked very well for a woman that has gone through her first chemo treatment.

The oncologist appointment was after the surgeon's appointment. She had blood work done before seeing the doctor. The doctor told her she looked great and that her blood count was low. He prescribed an antibiotic for her to take for five days as a precaution. She was instructed to avoid crowds and crowded places. She should avoid raw fruits and veggies until her numbers come back up.

After the appointment we found a place to grab a sandwich and then I drove her home. She did well and was tired by the time we got her back home.

We will see the doctor again on the Nov 9th for more blood work and the second round of chemo.
