Dr. Going for 8 Chemos Vs. 6--#6 is Now Over

I had NO cancerhead for this at all. Instead, I felt oddly good. Can't explain it--NO cancerhead? Am I happy about 8 vs. 6? No. Did I want to go into "limbo" again of waiting? No. But he feels 8 should be the protocol and then we decide what to do--there are two options and I'm already leaning toward the one I think will be best in the long run. Tomorrow I'll have the CA125 result. So I will get to see the new facility they're moving to (across the street) in mid January on 2/4. Feels funny--I was prepared for this, that he'd go 8 and I was also prepared for "limbo" but right now I sit kind of numb--maybe when he said 8 I got the cancerhead. Who knows. But when I was through, having missed lunch here, I went to Dairy Queen (even though I gained 5 pounds over the holidays) and then went and got four pretty carnations for myself. Odd--just now as I was typing, and after I've been to the prayer board praying for others, and thinking about why I feel numb, I got the message out of the blue: "This is to be." Look out any lurking cancer cells--and I'm going for a cyberfriend's CA125 of 4 (which will be down from last month's 6.5).

You go for it dear friend!!!!! Eight sounds good to me. And I'll say a little prayer for that ca of 4 you are hoping for.
You sound wonderfully strong and upbeat these days. And those extra pounds look great on you.

Sounds like things are going really good!!! Excellent! Well, 2 more treatments isn't too too bad, and your doctor sure sounds like a good guy!! If he feels the protocol should be 8 then he must have some knowledge to back that up and thats good.

That CA is dropping so wonderfully!! You are giving a whole new meaning to the wish for a "single digit". Even if its stays the same its still a really good reading!!

In my prayers as always!!

gotta love dairy queen

You have an amazing attitude...and I totally believe in the strength of an M&M blizzard. I will keep you in my thoughts and send lots of good energy your way. I liked your analogy about the CT contrast and Liquid Plum'r. Thank you for your replies!

Good Luck on 2 more Chemos. Does this mean you will be in the new area of your clinic? Praying for you for the best.

Lots of s, Ellen.
Two more sessions should kill off even the lousy little coward cancer cells hiding and thinking their home free. They heard six and will be fooled. Crush them!! (that felt good)

You have a smashing attitude about this. I'm so glad that you got your message that "this is to be". It's got to be right--it wouldn't have been sent otherwise. It must have given you some peace.

I just know you can make it through 2 more treatments. And then you should continue to treat yourself to dairy queen and flowers--you deserve it!! If I were there in Wisconsin I would certainly treat you (and treat myself at the same time ).

Go number 4!!
