My mom’s cancer treatment continues, and she has found a new lovely side effect. One of the drugs she started has caused a rash to develop on her arms and legs. It isn’t painful, but it does itch, and that can be most annoying. Now compared to what traditional chemo did the last time she had it, the side effects of these new targeted drugs are minor. And the Mayo Clinic is making certain mom has the best care available, including two multi-day stays in the hospital while ramping up new drugs to make certain her body tolerates them. These are very new treatments, and Mayo is one of the eight hospital/clinics that is testing them, and I thank God daily for the fact that Mayo Clinic is here. And that we are here because of that. Though the itchy rash is still a bit annoying… If something could be done about that, my mom would be most thankful… 😉
