Well I saw my onco again after a week on no drugs at all. My CEA has jumped from 70+ to 1117 and my CA 27-29 from 382+ to 666.8! In one freaking week! So it is on to treatment with no delay. I start Aromasin (a steroidal aromatase inhibitor) as soon as my hubby gets home with it. And I get a port put in to Wednesday and start Navelbine chemo Thursday, see the onc again Friday.
Alongside all this mess, my girlfriend from Seattle arrives Monday and will be here for all of it. Some vacay for her. :( She’ll be sitting by my bedside, sitting in dr appts, and sitting at chemo, poor girl! And she thinks she’s gonna get her taxes done while here. Suuuuuuure you are!
Oh, and did I mention the MRI I have to schedule for my brain cuz I have had headaches for the past week or so every day and I am not a headachy person. So they’re gonna rule out brain mets.
Have you noticed my cycle yet? I tend to go down the hole about this time of year and the spend the spring/summer trying to dig myself out. Let’s just hope I don’t have to dig too hard. I went out to see Gunny today and I had no energy, much less balance. I really feel like I’m losing ground. Before, I could walk him down to the arena and work with him. I don’t know if I can do that now.
So anyway, that is it for me for now. Please keep me in prayer and positive energy for Wednesday and Thursday for the most part. I have Kurt Peterson working on me 4 nights a week remotely, and Kris Kraft due to come back and work on me Feb 18. Fingers crossed, as always!
