I have just had my 3rd infusion of Doxil. The side effects during the second round weren't pleasant with bad burning of hands and feet and nasty blisters requiring constant dressing by the nurses - and making life difficult - as well as rashes on my body. However the CA125 came in with a drop of 60 points over the month now down to 322 - very acceptable! My oncologist has reduced my 3rd infusion by 20 percent hoping it will reduce the side effects but stlll work to reduce the cancer. Here's hoping!!!
Some wonderful news is that our daughter gave birth to her first child (and our first grandchild) last night - a dear little boy called Koa. Such a darling and means so much to all of us. So much to look forward to and to live for for me! I have been very emotional and can't help worrying I might not see him grow up but whatever happens I will enjoy every moment I have with him. I am very grateful we live close by so will be able to see lots of him!
