Since the last time I posted about Mom, a lot has happened. Some good stuff, and some not so good stuff.
Toward the end of my pregnancy, Mom had a CT scan and found out that a few tumors had grown a little (which I first wrote about here). This meant Mom had to get more chemo. She was unhappy since she was supposed to come to my house once Henry was born and stay with me for the week.
Luckily, she’s a beast, and dealt with the chemo like a champ! She was able to come to my house and stay with us while we adjusted to life with our new baby. That week with her and Jon was one of the best of my life and I will never forget it. I couldn’t have done it without her.
Once the chemo was done, the doctors decided to do more radiation on a few spots. This worried Mom since the last time she had radiation, it had kinda kicked her ass. This time around wasn’t quite as bad. She was still tired and groggy afterwards, but again…she went into beast mode and finished it strong.
After those two treatments were done, Mom got another CT scan, and results provided mixed news. On the one hand, the tumors where Mom had had radiation had shrunk, but there were some other areas that had grown again. This cancer is no joke. But neither is Judy Larson.
She’s currently having more chemo. The chemo she’s having now is 1 day a week for 3 weeks and she just finished her 2nd treatment this week. I personally think she’s doing AWESOME. While I know she probably doesn’t feel great (this treatment gives her flu like symptoms and other aches and pains), you could never tell. Her mood is amazing, her attitude is positive, and she still lights up any room she’s in. She never complains. She never whines. She is always strong.
We knew when Mom was diagnosed that this cancer would never go away. We knew it was going to be a bitch to fight, and it has been. But we also knew that Judy Larson is one stubborn bia, and she wasn’t going to just give up easily…and she hasn’t.
This month it has been 2 years since I found out Mom had Stage 4 lung cancer. I honestly never thought that two years later, this is where we’d be. I’m continuously in awe of her courage. I may not tell her that all the time like I should, but it’s true. I’m so impressed with her attitude and the way she carries herself. I’m so lucky she’s my Mom and the grandmother to my child.
Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers and please keep them coming. They ARE working and they ARE making a difference.
