I saw the doctor yesterday and got the best news I've had in a long time. My tumor markers had climbed to 168 at the last count 3 weeks ago (normal is 0-35). Yesterday's count had dropped to 75 - less than half of the previous count! This simply means that the new chemo I'm on must be having a positive effect on the cancer. Now I'm just praying for it will continue to drop to zero.
I continue to feel fine although with a bit of nausea this week due to the chemo. We have a big wedding coming up in two days for my nephew and I'm hoping to hold up for all the festivitives.
