Hello to all my army pray warriors! Yesterday I had my 8th chemo treatment, and my platelet levels were very very low and I almost didn’t get to have my chemo, but my Dr. lowered my doses of all my chemo drugs, so I did get to have my treatment. By lowering my dose it should also help with my Neuropathy, another side effect I have from chemo which leaves my fingers, hands, legs and feet with tingling, numbness and cramping.
BUT!!!! Great news!!! From my blood work!!!!!! My Cancer CA-19 dropped to 147 YAAAAAAA!!!!!! MY CA-19 has never been this low, this is great news! A Normal CA-19 is 37, which is one of our goals!
CA -19 is a tumor marker and shows if you have cancer, and if it's spreading to other areas. My numbers on this test have been all over the map, in December, I was up to 1,465 which worried the Dr’s, but the numbers came down in January to 700’s then yesterday to 147. This shows chemo is working! I just emailed this info to my Mayo Clinic Dr. and they wrote back, this is excellent news Amy! We will see you in March, As Dave and I are on schedule to visit the Mayo clinic next month.
I am so blessed by the Lord, I have been given a beautiful family and great friends! So please remember to live each day to the fullest, and always remember the blessings we have been given.
