Jus' keeps rollin' . . .

My oncologist just called with the news I've been waiting all day to hear.  The CA125 results from yesterday's blood draw are in, & it's again good news. The number is--74! That's reduced by more than half since the last measurement 3 weeks ago. If this pace keeps up, it's possible my CA125 tumor marker could be in the normal range the next time it's taken. I'm amazed.

Now, hoping for equally good results 1 week from today for Doug, who on June 4 will get a new aortic valve plus probably a single bypass graft. Minimum 4-day hospital stay, heavy-duty recovery at home for a few weeks after that, then cardio rehab visits for several months. 

Thanks to everyone for all your good wishes & kind thoughts. We appreciate them so much!

You two take such good care of each other! Hope your 'success' story extends itself to Doug and his surgery! You owe him phenomenal 'home care' as he did for you (hopefully you took notes). My best wishes to you both!! During your 'recovery' you put together that European trip scrapbook!! Thanks for taking us all along on your trip!! It was a lot of fun!
