Up to Something?

Up to Something?, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
I took this candid shot of my mom while I sat with her during chemotherapy today. She just looks like she is up to something in this picture. Maybe it is the dose of ativan she took before they started her chemotherapy.

It's been great sitting with her as she walks through all of this stuff. The doctor and her have both noticed a reduction of the size of the tumor in her breast. What does that mean? It means cancer is losing to this strong Indian woman (as if it had a chance!). I'm so proud of her for fighting through this.

She is making wise choices in terms of diet and she is probably the most compliant patient I have ever heard of. She is doing everything within her power to beat this illness. She has a positive attitude, and tons of support. And beyond this, her hand is being helped by the hand of the Almighty!

So many people are praying for her, and she knows it, and is extremely thankful. So if you are reading this blog and keeping up with her, she and I and the rest of the family send you a hearty thank you!!! Keep on praying--it is making a huge difference for all of us. In fact, if you are reading this, stop and pray right now--thanks again!
