Got my CA125 (cancer marker that is a trend to watch for my cancer) back today.
Last month it was 112.
When I was diagnosed in June 2006, it was 174. The highest it's been.
After my surgery in June 2006 and with chemo through a good part of 2007, it had gone down to 22. The lowest it's ever been.
My bloodwork from last week came back and it's up to 143. :(
Which means the chemo (carboplatten) probably isn't working.
I'm supposed to get a CT scan this week, and that should give us more info. If it's changed for the worse, or not changed, then we will probably switch back to Folfox/avastin (every other week).
That's geared more towards GI based cancers.
That one had the side effects of the naropathy (numbness in hands and feet) and the cold trigger.
I had a feeling things weren't going the way they should though. I can feel it inside me. :(
At least I had a good day today.
Got a load of laundry done.
I walked 40' UPHILL with Paris.
Went to the chiro to deal with the MVA effects from being rear-ended 10-17-07.
Talked to Janelle on the phone.
Got a call from Ellen, and met her at Borders to go book shopping and lunch. Got my very favorite coffee drink.
And then met Paris and Natalie and got a manicure (they got pedicures).
Picked up the kids.
Tried to take a little nap with Simba at my feet. Ended up reading "Marley and Me" instead. Laughed out loud!!!!
Paid the bills (very late).
And now I'm waiting to hear from Ellen because I think we're going to go see a Chick Flick tonight. Good thing since I need something to take my mind off of this CRAP now.
Have some shows to watch tonight (American Idol and Dancing with the Stars!).
I'm always grateful to see another Tuesday.
Hope you all had a good Tuesday and got more good news than bad news.
Sometimes life just sucks really alot ya know???
