The Latest News

I will be starting my new trial chemo next Tuesday.  The next 3 weeks will be quite challenging, as I have to be at the doctor's office several days each week.  Then it will be only once a week.

I am so hopeful for this regimen.  They have had some encouraging results.  I could use some encouragement!!

I feel really well.  I have started noticing that my legs hurt a little less, now that I am off the Avastin.  Hopefully, this will continue to improve.

I had all my pretesting done today....it was a long day, but my son was with me, and he always keeps me laughing.  We went out for a fantastic breakfast - for lunch! 

Then I did a bit of shopping at Target and JoAnns....I really did find a couple of cute things....to be shown soon on my Thinkin' of Home blog!

So think of me next Tuesday.  Halloween day will be the 6th anniversary of my surgery.  They gave me 9 months!!  Praise the Lord, I am still here, loving life.

I hope you all love life too!!!

New Day, New Post, New Plan

Went to the doctor today for my Avastin.  My doctor came out to talk to me and it was decided to stop the Avastin.  My CA125, the blasted thing, is slowly creeping up again and with my joint pain, tooth issue and eye issue, he feels it is time.

I will be detoxing for 2 more weeks and then starting on another trial.  There is high hopes for this new drug.  My doctor only got 5 spots...for OC and lung cancer.  So he wants me to get one.

My hair will thin a bit at the beginning...but hopefully, no total loss.  Never can be completely sure though.

I don't know if this is plan K or L....but I am hopeful.

I also had a thought.  I want to add a page to this blog of other Ovarian Cancer bloggers....fighters and survivors.  So if you are one or you know of someone, please have them comment to me.  Thanks.  I think us OCers.....need each others support.  Maybe we eventually could get the white house to go Teal???
