Woohoo!

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.

What wonderful news!!! I am just so pleased to hear this. I will pray that your nausea doesn't hold you back and your numbers continue on this great trend!

Fantastic! I'm so glad. We keep praying often, and it's great to hear good news. And we will walk with you if it's not good news, too.

I'll second that Woohoo and add a "thank you Jesus!" Love you so very much Yvonne, and I know this has been a physical and emotional roller coaster for you. I hope you sense through through prayers that you're not alone on this ride.
