She has been on various different combinations of anti-nausea medications, but so far, nothing seems to help very much.
We have had a couple of consultations with Northwest Natural Health regarding Shoshana's care. They have given us a few good ideas to improve her care, as well as serving as an expert eye when it comes to interactions between chemo medications and other supplements (or, in our case, antioxidant-rich fruit and veggie juices).
|Daddy is here for the weekend
- For Shoshana's leukemia, that it would be effectively treated, and go away, never to return. That she would recover fully and completely.
- For Shoshana, as she deals with the nausea, recovers from her deteriorated muscles, and not being able to speak very much or very clearly with the tracheostomy. She is currently able to speak short phrases out loud if she pushes hard past her trach. Other than that, we have been lip reading, and she has learned a few signs.
- For Elizabeth, Kristen, and me, as we care for her and Abigail, and attempt to also care for ourselves and each other.
