Bonnie, I am wondering, how are you? I am posting this because I know others are also wanting to know and you may not feel like answering a bunch of emails. Is the Gemzar helping? Keep us informed. Still praying for you and wishing you the best! Paula

Paula, how sweet you are. Thanks for asking. I have had my good days and bad days like the rest of you. Last month the gemzar lowered my tumor markers and this month I don't know yet. The lab changed the way they test the ca125 so it isn't back yet. I got an email from my chemo nurse last night. It was funny at my clinic appointment Wednesday they told me the gemzar was being stopped as I was getting to sick. But I felt great and had a couple of good days. They had to admit I looked good and so they let me have the chemo. Today a little sick but not bad, I just have to figure out how to keep my temp from spiking. I drink lots of water, take tylenol and motrin, anyone have any suggestions.

How is everyone else doing? New grandbaby here yet?

Well that's about it, I'll let you know what's going on as soon as I do.

Hugs and prayers

Bonnie

Bonnie, my grandson came a little early on Jan. 26. He's not gaining weight like he should so he is being watched and weighed very often. He seems healthy and happy. My daughter is going back to work Monday so little Adam will be coming here. Thank heavens, my health is okay for now and I am able to help them. I wish that I had a cure for your spiking temperture but I don't except for lukewarm baths. I'm sure you don't feel like bathing with a high temp. My prayers are with you. Your friend, Paula
