Slowly getting Better

I will do my best to get everyone up to date on what is/has been going on with my mom (Pat). The tumor they found in her arm was cancer and no surprise to the doctors (surprise to us). Her liver was not working well thus was because of either the GvH (which is what the doctor thinks) or from the cancer. They started her on treatment for the GvH for a couple of days and then started her on treatment for the cancer as well. Then she got some blood clots in her arm where they did the surgery, so she had surgery again on the same arm. (ouch). That is the recap for now.
Now for the update:
I call and talk with mom the last couple of days and have gotten good news two days in a row. Her liver counts are down and her liver is improving daily, her GvH is getting better which means her stomach has quieted down and she is able to eat again with out too many problems, her arm is healing well and her blusters are getting better and healing over (blusters on her arm from skin being so thin). So all in all good news. She is getting small amounts of chemo again to help fight the cancer and is on pain medication for her arm, so if you call and talk with her, she will sound drunk and repeat the same stories. She has never been able to hold her liquor. (hehe) Anyway good news for now and things are slowly improving, but at least she is improving.
Thank you all for your continued love and support.
