Spoke to Chris's (crecco) mom today

Another update from Chris's mom, I just got off the phone with her. (was unable to speak with Chris as she was exhausted after her trip into the doctor, came home, had a bit to eat, took a bath and went to lay down.) Her mom told me the doctor has given Chris some medicine to help increase her appetite, and stockings to help push the fluid in her legs upwards, so the kidneys can flush it out better. She had an ultrasound done, but does not have results of that yet. Chris is having increased pain, the doc believes it is coming from the tumor growth in the liver area. Our Chris is still fighting with everything she has in her, and talking about still getting to the event here in Chicago..I do not know if she is well enough to attend, but will support her in anyway necessary. She is staying with her mom, who I know is taking the best care possible of her. She is a wonderful woman, and mother, and I feel good knowing Chris is in the most comfortable place possible. Her family is very close to her, and are supporting her all the way. That alone puts my mind at ease.
   I hope you all will continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the update. I wanted to call her myself, but was afraid I would disturb her.

My thoughts and prayers are constantly with you, Chris.  I am praying you'll not only recover enough to make it to Chicago, but to handle new chemo to hopefully ease the pain with the liver metastisis.  I love you, and know your cheering section is always here!

Here's hoping you have a good night of rest and sweet dreams after such a busy day. Perhaps tomorrow you'll be up to reading some love notes from  the women here who care about you so much. I'm with Gail - getting out my daughter's pom-poms and cheering you on to better days.

Lots of hugs,  Irene
