    Hello,
    My mom was supposed to start chemo again today, did not happen still having problems with shingles. The doctor felt that chemo on top of shingles would be too much considering how frail she is. So, the new date if she is up to it will be 8/24/12. The doctor up'ed her pain meds to 3x per day, the shingles have been very painful and sleep has been hard.
    She's lost 30Lbs since March, looking for new foods to wet her appetite. She told the doctor that her mouth hurts and it's hard to eat partly because her dentures are too big and partly because of the shingles. I'm trying to keep my anxiety level in low gear but I'm struggling. I am used to seeing my mom strong and independent , not hurt, sick & depressed. I keep telling myself one day at a time. I'll post again soon, thanks for listening and all your support . God bless. Cheri
