Mom is doing just great.  She started her IV treatments last week and today she will have her fourth one.  They are putting 50,000 mg of Vitamin C, sodium bicarbonate, B Vitamins, trace minerals, amino acids, and some other things into her IV.  She goes for three per week and they take about two hours to complete.

The doctor’s office is very friendly and the atmosphere is nice for Mom while she’s going through her treatment.  Her doctor also has Mom taking some mushroom pills that are a blend of various mushrooms (including the Maitake and shitake types), and cod liver oil with lemon.  She will start on a multi vitamin soon.  They are ordered, but not here yet.  She’s also drinking Essiac tea a couple of times a day too.

Dad is continuing to make fresh juice for her with their new Green Star juicer.  That thing is the coolest machine ever!!  I think I’ll bring over a bag of carrots next time so Dad can make me some juice.  It’s delicious and I don’t even like carrot juice.  lol

Mom has been improving so much lately.  Her energy level has improved so much.  It’s wonderful to see her up and about more and more lately.

Also – more good news.  Mom had a wonderful conversation yesterday with her primary care physician and he’s going to be very helpful in making sure that Mom gets the PET scans and other imaging she needs to monitor her progress.  So, that’s a huge blessing.

Well, I think that’s about it for the moment.  Thank you all SO MUCH for your prayers, and good thoughts for Mom.  She’s doing just great!!!
