Hi. Hope you're all enjoying your week. We're a bit stunned really in the Honey Boo household. Mum saw the oncologist on Monday and he has ceased all her chemotherapy! We were originally told she would have 6-8 cycles of chemo but the consultant told us yesterday (we only saw his registrar last time) that he'd only ever had her down for 4 cycles (as usual we were fed misinformation!!). Because she'd had 3 infusions, he said it was too risky for Mum to have a fourth cycle because they think it was the chemo that had caused the mini stroke she had. Also because the chemo is "belt and braces" and she will be monitored closely with scans, he felt the benefits of having a fourth would definately not be great enough because the surgery she had should be curative. It's a very strange feeling to be presented with. We all feel a bit numb really. Obviously this is fantastic news but it's weird cos we'd all psyched ourselves up for another 3-4 months of stress but now it's finally over. We've had 2 and a half years of hell what with my Dad and then my Mum getting sick so quickly afterwards and now we're at the end of it. We can try to get some normality into our lives. We all feel a bit strange...
