Hard to Believe..

but this week is CT scan again.  I can really attest for how quickly time flies.  This time I am already prepared with my premeds.  Please remember me on Thursday that all goes smoothly and that the results read on the following Tuesday will be encouraging.  I must admit that I haven't been feeling as well as I would like, but I attribute a lot of it to the heat.  My husband reminds me that it bothered me more last year as well.  I think it may be the combination of the heat and the medications I am on. 
Hope you all are staying cool and enjoying this hot summer.  Trust me, Fall will be here before you know it!!

Saw the Doctor again..

And we are all puzzled.  We pretty much thought that the current chemo had quit working fully for me and I was going to get off of it.  Then Tuesday I went in, and my CA125 was down.  So we decided to decide how long to be on the chemo on a month to month basis.  Next month I have another CT scan.  It would be fabulous if my CA125 was down some more and the tumors shrink.  I pray that the Lord will give me, my husband and my doctor wisdom on what to do for further treatment. 
We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend....even though it is very hot in AZ! 
So, I continue on...thankfully, and enjoy this wonderful, but difficult at times life the Lord has given me.
