Hope she continues to do alright. After treatment is done for a few weeks, she will start to return to somewhat "normal" we all say we get a new normal. But I do know what you mean about wishing she was like her old self. I took care of mom and dad both in hospice care, they both were diagnoses within 10 months of each other. She will start feeling better right after treatment starts, but some side effects hang on for a long time.
