Calling for Prayers

Mom sees the oncologist this morning to hear her CT results from the scan she had done 2 weeks ago. Her bloodwork yesterday still has the CA125 up around 70, so the cancer is definitely not into remission. The doctor will tell her if they found any more masses and how things look in general. This may be a very bad day for her. Sounds like another round of chemo is in order, possibly even starting today.

Your prayers are what she needs! Please post here to show her you are thinking about her!

Just heard from dad a bit ago... the news is better than expected! The CT did not detect anything new in her abdomen. So that's great! There is some fluid still around her lungs, which they will draw off next week and send it for testing/pathology. She's been going without the oxygen a good bit now and they did a O2 saturation test and it came up at 98%, which is basically normal. That's a blessing, not dragging that tank around!

So basically she's on hold. They will do some checking and testing, but right now NO CHEMO! Probably some in the future but not right now. That made her VERY happy! And makes me VERY HAPPY!

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I'm sure your mom is very tired of this whole thing. My prayers are with you.
