Last Friday Mom went and had another blood draw to check her tumor marker. They did this to see if this chemo was having any effect on the cancer before her next treatment. Today she went in to get her results and talk to the dr. If the marker count went up they would talk about doing something different….
So she got her results today and the count went from 419 to 70.6!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!! Couldn’t have asked for much better news. Praise the Lord!!!
Mom is very excited and they will go ahead with the treatment today. She does have some hard side effects from this chemo but they are tolerable if it is working. She also has not lost her hair as of this point.
I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with his praise.
I live and breathe God;
if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:
Join me in spreading the news;
together let’s get the word out.
God met me more than halfway,
he freed me from my anxious fears.
Look at him; give him your warmest smile.
Never hide your feelings from him.
When I was desperate, I called out,
and God got me out of a tight spot.
God’s angel sets up a circle
of protection around us while we pray.
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—
how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to him.
