Cancer Updates

Mom had her third treatment this week and everything went well! She is feeling good. It amazing me how with all of the chemicals they are pumping in her, she can feel the way she does.
I expected so much worse (and it can be).
We are all feeling the strength of your prayers.
It really makes a difference! In more ways than you think.

From Mom's blood work there are numbers called cancer
counters that represent how much cancer is in her.
She started off with 16,000 and was down to 11,000.
The doctor called today to say it is now down to 6,000!
To give some perspective...normal is 5. Not 500 not 5,000 just 5.
It seems to be working but we have a long way to go.
April 6th is a CT Scan that will tell more of the progress of the
treatments and will determine future treatments.
