just as things seemed to be going really well...

yesterday mum was supposed to have thestemcells harvested for the transplant in a few weeks time. yep supposed to, it didn't happen. Why? you ask. because someone in hospital made a very big huge mistake that no-one knows what to do with and might mean everything was for nothing. yup months of chemo 2 5 day intensives two 4 week periods of isolation all for nothing.
She was supposed to inject herself daily to encourage stemcell growth, no-one told her this was to continue after she got home saturday, no-one gave her injections. Because she had started the treatment they don't think her body will respond to any further injections now. nevertheless she has started the injections and is very hopeful. more so than me, so I guess its good I'm so far away right now. I can pretend and she doesn't have to see me bawl my eyes out.

To top it of our sweet little lara is not doing well. mum said she has been really down for a few days and got two big lumps (we're talking tennisball sized) that have grown rapidly. being the old girl she is the appointment this afternoon will probably mean she isn't coming home again...
