Beth is finishing up her second five-day “cycle” of Vidaza (which runs for five days, then three weeks off). My son Zach has been kind enough to take time off so he could take his mom to the doctor’s office so she could get this treatment. Even though it’s not strictly “chemotherapy,” it still kicks her in the butt and wipes her out.
I was talking with someone about this yesterday, and I accidentally said that she was having her Viagra treatment. I guess that’s an understandable Freudian slip. Something like this makes you feel weak and helpless. We are truly grateful to everyone for their help and prayers.
