The scan that was performed earlier this month revealed a small tumor in the hip joint, so daily radiation treatment to that area began last week and will end in two days. In the meantime, chemotherapy has continued.
Sherryl has been very tired the past few weeks and has spent much of the time in bed sleeping. She continues to use a walker and, overall, she's feeling very weak. Her radiation oncologist validated today that her body is exhausted, probably due to cumulative chemotherapy treatments. Sherryl's oncologist is on vacation, so she'll see another oncologist this week. It is not yet determined if she will be administered chemotherapy this week.
Sherryl has sorely missed being at day care and has missed spending the holiday season with the children. But the perkiness in Sherryl's voice is beginning to return, and she's determined to regain her strength. Determined. Resilience.
To join the little elf above in cheering her on, here is one of RaRa's favorite Christmas songs.
