Val had enough energy for Cindy Cato to come up with a woman to give Val a manicure and pedicure today! Cindy says Val is in good positive spirits and is mentally ready for chemo tomorrow on Friday. Dad went to the medicine shop to get some medications and to the grocery store while Cindy was there.
Val's VNA Mary has been incontact with Tony the chemo nurse. Tony and Eltaback are aware of Val's weakness and lack of strength at this time. Her RBC remains at 8 which it was when she was in the hospital . Normal is 14. (if a 7 she would be a candidate for a transfusion). Tony has Val scheduled for a transfusion first tomorrow, before receiving the Genzar chemo drug. This will be a long day at the MD office as the transfusion takes several hours itself. Dad won't leave for lunch as he used to because Val is too fragile medically and he is fearful of an adverse negative reaction to occur to Val while receiving the chemo drugs.
Love and prayers to Val always....Salynn
