Yet, even I have strange occurances when my nose gets numb and my blood sugars drop. But, mom? She takes changes in her body to a new level. She insists pain killers don't work on her body the way they work on other people's bodies. She says when she takes one and her body doesn't need it, the pain killer won't work. Then, lately, she's been not wanting to take the different meds she is on. Because she wants to get better and is afraid the meds might keep her from getting better.
Thankfully, one of the meds is a drug many people i know are taking. It made mom feel better to take this thing when I told her Aunt K and dear L are taking these, too. And that L has been taking it for years! In spite of the array of bottles and pills, mom really isn't on too terribly many drugs.
I am thankful for this. I know many more cancer patients on quite a few really expensive medications and it is horrid. At least these few she is on make her somewhat sleepy for a bit. And she burbles. Most of the time, it isn't important, but sometimes she comes up with comments I have to listen to and smile about.
It is hard to watch mom hold her head and know she is in pain and I cannot give her anything more. It makes me ache to know mom's feeling sick and I can give her twice the meds only a couple of times. I seriously wonder if the cancer she says is gone is inside her, biding its time, holed up to strike soon.
Only time will tell. And we will wait.
