Well they figured out that Mom had a bad reaction to the chemo--chemotoxicity is the technical term. She is still in the hospital after a week, but they put a stent in her pancreas on Wednesday and now it's just a question of physical therapy, because she is very weak. But they are probably going to let her go sometime soon, it's just a question of exactly when and whether she goes home or to an intermediate place where she can be more mobile but still looked after for a while longer.

But it is depressing because they had hoped that 3 months of chemo and she'd be ready for the surgery, and this means that won't happen. They have to dial it back, slow it down, and that extends the chemo period for maybe as much as a year. SIGH.

Waah.

But she's able to get up and walk around, and she isn't in pain, she's able to talk again (the chemotoxicity had led to fluid build up under lungs, so she couldn't breathe or talk much until they figured out what was and drained it). So the improvement is a massive relief!

Phew, for that.
