A very sick energizer bunny
Sitting in my car listening to (and feeling) the Thunder crash and the rain pound while Lorelei does radiation early today. She'll call me when she's done and I'll be able to drive up and get her under the canopy to keep her dry as I pick her up. She's truly doing all the hard work of this on her own. I'm so proud of her. I've never seen her so miserable and yet she still moves forward. Her throat and esophagus are burnt and blistered do badly that she hurts ALL the time, not just when she swallows. She can't stand the thought of eating but she gets so hungry it's all she can think about. She's exhausted. And yesterday her hair started falling out in clumps (again.) This is her new precious curly brown hair falling out. And radiation is not the cause. We have no idea why it's falling out now. Maybe it's a delayed side effect if the Brentuximab? Anyway, please add sweet Lorelei to your prayers today especially.
Have I mentioned lately how much I hate cancer?
