Back from vacation--got test results

Last Friday I had a LONG day at Huntsman (from 7 am until 6 pm). I had a PET scan, doctor visit and IV medication--each taking a few hours, with waiting in between.
Saturday the 10th my mom's side of the family and I did the Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure--it was amazing!! THANKS EVERYONE!!
Sunday we left for San Diego--it was so great!! We just sat and played on the beach most of the time.

Photo thanks to our good friend Christy Johnson who took us to an awesome beach in Laguna area!

The results from my PET scan and bloodwork on Friday, May 9 are:
liver looks better than last scan
bones either have more cancer or are rebuilding--it's hard to tell (let's hope they're building)
my tumor marker number went up by about 1,000 (wow!!--that's not so great)

For now, we're just continuing treatment without changes. I'm taking my new homeopathic remedies--I'm on the third week now.

Feeling Good!!

Jen! I am sorry to hear the results weren't exactly what you were hoping for. . .you are still in my prayers each day. I love your great attitude about everything. I want to hear about how the homeopathic remedies are working out - I hope great! We were at Laguna Beach the same time you were in San Diego. Funny, huh? I am glad to hear you had a great time!!
