Again and Again

Mom’s back in the hospital again because she’s in pain. Today will be her first treatment with the higher dosage of the medicine, and I understand they are going to suppliment the antibodies with some other drugs. Mom still seems optimistic though. In case you didn’t know, her lymphoma has been upgraded to “large cell lymphoma”, a more agressive type. She was given the option of chemotherapy or a bone-marrow transplant, but either of those choices would be an option if the lymphoma returned after treatment. The antibodies apparently can be used over and over to control the lymphoma.

I am getting more and more worried every day.
