The day before Thanksgiving I had a ct scan which showed that the tumors in my lungs are still continuing to grow. The concern is that this chemo is not working. But because I was delayed with one round and skipped another, it may just be that I haven't been consistent enough. The plan is to do two more rounds which will make four consistent rounds and have another ct scan on January 6th. If the tumors are still growing we will move to the third and final chemo option.
I did so well with the folfox it didn't enter my mind that this one would not work for me. I'm trying not to worry about it until we know for sure what we are dealing with but at the same time it is good to be prepared.
This has been a rough chemo on me, leaving me very weak and tired (not to mention the hair loss). But I continue to feel lifted by the love and prayers that are so generously given in my behalf. I believe they are literally keeping me going. I am so grateful for the support of good friends and family that I am surrounded by.
