Sherryl has transitioned completely from intravenous medication to oral medication. Her doctors no longer believe pain medication needs to be administered by way of a catheter to her back, so the previously considered minor surgical procedure is no longer part of the current treatment plan. While Sherryl has experienced some spasms in her back, she feels little to no pain when they occur.
Sherryl's appetite is good. She recently enjoyed cheese (one of her very favorite foods!) and crackers, as well as some tasty drinks from Jamba Juice. She has been able to get in and out of bed herself, and tries to take her walker for a daily stroll up and down the hospital corridor.
Nights have been more restful for Sherryl, and, in the advent of chemotherapy received on Thursday, she is getting a lot of sleep today. Doctors believe she will be ready to go home in the next day or two.
Sherryl continues to think about all those she loves, and is also thinking a lot about Team RaRa and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Thank you Team RaRa!
