Had my labs yesterday......hemoglobin was down to an 8, so they sent me in bright and early this morning for two yummy pints of packed red blood cells. I'm pretty sure I will be coming back as a vampire in my next life.
Got my CA 125 results, though, and it was a little, tiny SIX. I couldn't be happier if I looked at the label in my jeans, instead of my lab report, and saw that happy number 6.
Just a reminder for you newbies........pre-surgery, my CA 125 was 4,000. And after my first chemo session, it went UP 200 points. So stay the course and don't let those big numbers scare you. They don't mean a thing.
