March 4, 2011 Exciting news

Karen (our wonderful main hospice nurse) stopped by with some great news. Mom had blood draws done yesterday and told us that the CA 19-9 the pancreatic cancer marker) levels are down. It appears that this last round of chemo is helping. We will know more on Monday when we make the bi-weekly trip to Dr. Singh and discuss the next round. Mom is feeling a little weak and tired which appears to be a side affect of the combination of meds she is using to head of the round of crud that is picking up the rest of us field mice and bonking us on the head.

    Isn’t it odd that I get more laughs from the weekly blog entries about my good friend’s journey with cancer than I do with most anything? The Walker family is quite talented at expressing themselves. The news about the reduced levels is wonderful. Get rid of that crud and enjoy the coming spring. NC is already filled with all sorts of blooms. Much love!
