My Corner…

It feels like  the worse pain, mom being in the hospital this way.  At the moment she is suffering from what is called Chemo Brain.

Post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment

Post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment describes the cognitive impairment that can result from chemotherapy treatment. Approximately 20–30% of people who undergo chemotherapy experience some level of post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment. The phenomenon first came to light because of the large number of breast cancer survivors who complained of changes in memory, fluency, and other cognitive abilities that impeded their ability to function as they had pre-chemotherapy.
Right now things are so fuzzy with her short term memory, it is all over the place, and she has said some things  that sounds like she is giving up.  We are not giving up on her, never giving up on her.  These tears may fall, and believe me they are falling like waterfalls, but I am going to do all that I can to encourage her to fight this fight, that she has so much to live for.  I feel at a loss, but I can not give up.  I won’t give up.
