Well, mom had her checkup after her last chemo at the end of october. Her ca125 was 3 than. Now she is in "remission" and her number is still a 3. I am very relieved. Now he is deciding to send her for a catscan of her lungs. Makes me a little peeved because if we had gotten treatment at a better hospital overall i am sure they woulda done that in the beginning. Just not happy with local hospital at all. Univ of Penn did a great job on mom's surgery but if she was given the proper treatment 2 years ago when the cancer was growing we wouldn't have to be worrying about a lung catscan. Anyway, just hoping the news stays good.

Well the catscan showed clear lungs. Even after all of her smoking, the horrible dreaded mr. cancer has decided to only be in the peritoneum. Amen! She is happy. And may i add I have not seen her with this kind of appetite since i was about 28,29. I am now 34. I think this cancer took its time to get to the point where it was. I just encourage her to eat because someday she could have to do this again and i want her to be healthier than when she was losing weight and not able to eat before they diagnosed her. Thanks guys!
