  • My sister's Interferon treatments are done~

    She made it thru 19 of the 20 treatments!!! She was the only one of a dozen or so others who started treatment the same day she did. Most stopped treatment after the 3rd day because they couldn't handle the side effects.

    On Monday she will start having injections 3 days a week. As of right now I don't know what they are called but this is expected to go on for the next year. The cost is $3000.00 per month and there is a good chance that BlueCross will not cover it.

    She has spent the better part of the last month sleeping which is a side effect of the interferon, and a blessing from above.

    I haven't seen her since treatment began because I never know what bug I'm going to pass on and I didn't want to make it harder on her. Today, after talking to her husband, I had a major melt-down and I swear.......if anyone ever tells me how " strong " I am again, I'm going to deck them. I am NOT strong, I don't want to be strong. I want someone to wake me and tell me that this has all been some kind of mistake. This kind of pain is unbearable. She is my sister. The person that I've spent most of my life hating. It's taken melenoma to bring us together as sisters should be. I would gladly take this from her if I could. It hurts. It hurts so damn much and I just want it to go away.

    Please, Please, pray for my sister~

          I went to see Diane today. First time in the 4 weeks of her treatments. She just wanted me to lay in the bed with her and not move because of the headaches from her treatments.

          Then, came home, spent the rest of the day crying or sleeping. I know how serious this is. Her and I have talked. I know her feeling completely. Her husband and live-in 26 year old daughter don't have a clue. She has told me she already know's what's going to happen but for her family she will continue treatment as long as possible.

          Nothing should have to hurt this bad~nothing.
          Being completely powerless SUCKZ

              It is terrible to be powerless, I totally agree. Thinking of you all.

                Teri,
                No one should have to suffer like that. I'm glad your sister has you. I never know what to say, but I wanted you to know I care. kissing
