Random thoughts of a Brit living in the Imperial Valley of California

Recovery Time, Please.

with one comment

Tomorrow marks the last day of radiation treatment for my mother’s brain tumour. 29 visits, three blasts a trip, has taken a very heavy toll on her health, far more than any of my reading had prepared us for. From here there are supposedly two ‘bad weeks’ before she stands any chance of getting better; I can’t really imagine how she can get any worse. I’m not sure how my father and sister are able to cope with it day to day, watching our strong independent mother lose so much function so fast. And perhaps forever.

Even though you don’t know her, if you believe in prayer, voodoo, magic, or whatever, I ask that you please will her fast relief from her symptoms.
