Re: Mom in Hospital

Chemo is somewhat cumulative, so as the treatments add up, so do the side effects. You didn't say what type of cancer she has or what type of chemo she's receiving, so I can't answer more specifically, but I would give her doctor a call and ask if this is to be expected, what to do if her condition worsens, and ask when you can expect her condition to improve.
