I got my CA27.29 score and my tumor markers have dropped from 1826 on 2/20 to 1578 on Wednesday. That is the first regression I've seen! And I am feeling better - the cough from the lung mets has completely disappeared. Of course, a scan will be more definitive and I think that will happen after I finish the 3rd cycle. Hopefully, my blood counts can hold up to the 50% dose.
I am feeling a bit better and my appetite seems to be making a comeback so my optimism (and my family's) has been boosted this week.
There's a little fun in the works - we are flying to Phoenix next Wednesday evening (after my treatment). Two of Rick's golf buddies are also flying out to play golf with him. He needs the break and I know the guys will have a great time while I soak up the warm Phoenix sun, sitting by the pool. And for a change, it looks like the weather is really going to cooperate!
