I just had to share with you that I think we've found a combination the cancer doesnt' like. My tumor markers are down to 25 in just 8 weeks. The Avastin/Cytoxan combination is definitely doing something. I will continue getting this for another 4 months and then get a CT Scan.
Who would have thought after having the talk from my Dr in January about coming to the time when I will be going in and out of the hospital and asking me to what degree I wanted to be kept alive to feeling pretty good and tumor markers dropping. PTL
I am so grateful to have a Dr that looks outside the box. And is willing to try new combinations. One that is willing to fight with me for as long as I want to keep fighting also
Maybe I will see some of my grandkids graduate and the trees I have planted (and try to save from being deer food) grow tall. Randy is doing much better and not as crabby now that I am better. He finally shared how he was feeling, and how the thoughts of being alone were on his mind a lot. I am so grateful he could finally share what was bothering him. It is harder sometimes for those that will be left behind. But right now, as far as I know, I am not going anywhere. :-)
~God is good~
prayers and hugs bonnie
