More Good News

May 5, 2007

I just wanted to keep everyone updated on Mom’s progress. . .

Mom went this Wed. for her third chemo treatment. They did another tumor marker count with her blood work. She just had the marker count done a week ago, so it had only been a few days since her previous one. The results came back that it went down another 10 points!! They weren’t sure if they would see any change from the week before. . .so that is more good news! That brings her count down to 70 – so It has dropped over 1/2 from what it was last month.

The Dr. did want her to do at least four treatments and she has agreed to do that. She is hoping for no more than that. After four they really start taking a toll on her body.

Thank you all for praying. We appreciate it so much! I will keep you informed of any more news I get.

  2. I came over to see how your mom is doing. I’ll keep praying the count gets even better.

    The boys are so cute with their wild pets.

  3. We are so happy to hear the good report. We had a great lunch together a couple of weeks ago. I don’t know why we wait so long between visits.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Marlis!!

    Carol, we need to get together sometime for lunch too! I will hitch a ride with mom sometime.

    How are you? Did you get to go to the city wide garage sales?

  7. Hey, Kandi!

    Nope, I didn’t. I did have a garage sale of my own last week though. It was good to get rid of some junk around here – gotta make room for more!
