Mothering Thru Melanoma

My walk through the scary world of cancer while caring for my family.

What a week! July 17, 2011

Bubba was sick all week with a really nasty cold and a fever that wouldn’t break. He was waking up every 20/30 mins every night so sleep was not good for either of us. Fortunately, he is doing much better. Still congested but doing well.

I had the beginnings of a UTI which has gone from uncomfie to downright painful. I am trying to hold on til Tuesday when I have my monthly oncology visit. I had no clue that when you have melanoma, UTI’s can be a sign of a spread if normal treatment does not work. Really hoping that it’s just because the interferon is messing with my immune system and not a spread. Tuesday can’t come soon enough.

Other than that, we’ve had a pretty good start to the summer. Lots of fun…camp and keyboard club for Buggy and school two days a week for Bubba just to keep the routine. Bubba is now sleeping in a big boy bed and occasionally using the potty! He’s getting so big! Excited to see whatthe rest of the summer has in store.

    Hi, try not to worry too much about the UTI. I had 2 of them either while on the Interferon or when l had just finished and my Melanoma has not spread.

      Thank you! I am sure it will be fine. Just stinks that there’s always that fear with every little thing. They have lowered my dose two times and my blood counts are crazy. Only 6 more months and then hopefully I will start to feel myself again. Thanks again!
