AJ is now 6 days in to the 10 days of radiation, and although the side effects of this process of radiation and steroids is taking a toll on her a bit, she’s hanging in and not giving up. After this it will be back to Mayo (tentatively for the 20th of October) for the full shebang of workup, results and possibly the ‘next step’ , treatment-wise.
She has lost a bit more on the motor skills and is very worn out, mostly unable to take care of herself at this point. We’ve been treated to a slew of family members helping with various things, including what we’re affectionately calling ‘supper battle’, where so far Sara, Jenny, Ellis & Joy and Sean & Betty are competing (unbeknownst to them) for best supper ever.
For those people wondering, we have adopted a number of things in the Novak household to overcome the issues at hand. So far things are still working pretty smoothly, and although AJ has fallen quite a few times (in new places/ways each time the last one was buggered out) we are going strong.
We do thank each and every person for the little things they’re doing, as well as the big things (no matter how small you may see them). We’re in process of finding any more permanent assistance around the house, and just keeping up with things, but it’s all good!
Thank you all again!
