    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My sister is amazing. She never complains, she never shows pain, or problems. She is protecting us...<<<nervous laugh>>>. We all know her well and know when she quietly excuses herself that she has great need to be alone or in the comfort of her own home. We all are at a loss and she is so incredably self sufficient and private about her cancer. She has had highs and lows. She has went through months of Genzar only to have her cancer counts grow higher. treatment was done and she was told that nothing would help. She started taking the 5FU chemo and has been sucking it down like caramel lattes for 4 days a week every other week for over a year now. How ever when I joke it to her she says no not like caramel lattes, i dont like caramel. She has stayed so strong and so positive. None of this has been easy and I thank the lord above for being by her self and giving the strength she needs when she needs it most.

    what to do next, is there something left to do?

    Decision Point

    At a loss. All is coming to a very frightening point. The dr has cancelled the chemo. My sister has scheduled a trip to another dr for another perspective.....
