Posted on September 18, 2013It has been a little better than two weeks since mom's 8th and final chemo cycle. Her last tumor marker count number came in at a fantastic 5.2 (well into the normal "remission" levels)! That number started out at nearly 1600, before her first chemo cycles. She has had some issues with low blood counts, and consequently has had to receive several transfusions to get her red cells back up to where they need to be. She's been feeling better and regaining energy, since her last transfusion 2 days ago. Thank you to everyone who's given.

Posted on July 10, 2013Chemo round 6 is complete! The doctor is confident that the cancer will be in full remission after the 8th treatment, by the end of August.

Posted on July 9, 2013Mom as of this posting is 2 hours in to her 6th round of chemotherapy. She had an exam today with Dr. Peters, and was informed that she will be needing the last two rounds of chemo treatment with the combined taxol/carboplatin drugs. Sometime between now and the end of treatment, she will have another CT scan to see where she stands. Please continue to keep her in your prayers, and if there is anything additional that you can contribute to her fund, I know she would be very grateful.
