Good News

Mom received some good news today at her doctors visit. Apparently her CA-19 count is back down to the 400's from the 900's. She started a new chemo a while back, you can read the details here. This is really amazing news and has mom very excited. She called me right away to share the great news. Now, this doesn't mean that she is in the clear yet. Normal CA-19 counts are down in the double digits. But, when the other chemo she was on stopped working, her count had gone from the 400's back up to the 900's, so in essence we're right back where we were when the other chemo stopped having it effectiveness. So this is great, it means that this new chemo is working and seems to be working well. As I wrote before, she may be able to have another round of radiation at Stanford if the chemo continues to be effective.

Please continue to keep her in your prayers. They are working.
