Subject: [PD-LIFE] Update on Marge

She's going one day at a time...some better than others. My brother had
her out on Friday looking at cameras. Her photographic mind is still
turning. She was tuckered out from that on Saturday and was weary on
Sunday. Words escape her a good bit. Many of her symptoms overlap when
it comes to her brain with the Lyme and the tumors. I could not go Monday
eve. Tonight, she was dozing. My brother said she had not been "sick"
for a couple days...one never knows when her stomach will act up. The
hospice doc said she will give antibiotics for the Lyme...if they stay
down...if not, she will see what she can do about the stomach, but that is
probably the cancer still doing all that. We should be getting the
records from the hospital...I think hospice doc requested, too, so we know
what all is going on inside. My brother had said brain, lung, and stomach
cancer...I don't know if anywhere else but will spread since no treatment
going to be given since too far along. She has not really been in pain,
she says and takes some pain med as needed. She has very little muscle
left...I saw her legs...she can move around in bed and pull herself up and
all but needs help to potty chair and if she needs to sit up quickly.
She can not go to the play in Delaware as planned, so my brother and I
will take someone else with us Wed. nite.
That's all for now. Hope she does get outside again somehow when it is
warm like it was today.
