May your mil continue to do well.

    yay for her!!!.... i am glad she is doing better. Any better is better then worse as far as i am concerned. I am not sure if my mil is a candidate for the marrow transplant as she is pretty old.... 83? I also doubt she would be in for marrow harvesting......

    my fingers are crossed for both of you. Hang in there.....
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

    Only I will remain.

    shaww, since you like to cook and feed people, her weight loss must be very distressing. Sounds like her body and/or her mind has given up.
