Mom’s CA125 is now at 9,387. On September 26 it was at 4,298.
On June 24, 2016, the day she was diagnosed she was at 8,374. It’s sucky news for sure. But the silver lining is she isn’t in the same condition she was when she was diagnosed. She’s still functioning and not doubled over in pain and that feels like a pretty big miracle.
Today she started her new chemotherapy and now we just wait and see if it does anything. The effectiveness of this drug is between 15-20%. So while I would love to be optimistic my brain won’t allow me to set myself up for the heartbreak of another failed drug. So I’m just going to live in the moment and appreciate that mom is here and still her crazy self.
Thank you all for your love and support and riding along with us on this crazy cancer coaster 💜
