Yay me! (A blatant bit of plagiarism from Jen Lancaster)

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.

I am so HAPPY for you! We all put a lot of faith and hopes in those CA125 numbers.

I had my CA125 taken yesterday, too, after a 2-month break from chemo following my 1st recurrance. I was thrilled to get my results of 34.6, as that is still a drop of 8 points since I had my last chemo 2 months ago. It verifies my chemo-onc's opinion that bowel inflammation may be what was holding my CA125 in the mid-40's range for so long (6 rounds of weekly taxol where it didn't really drop at all). Especially since my bowels have settled down since I stopped chemo 2 months ago, and my CA125 dropped on its own without the chemo! That means I get at least ANOTHER 2 month break from chemo! I may actually get HAIR!!!

Dance on! Dance on!

Here's hoping your CBC numbers are "high" and your CA 125 is "low" - very, very low.
