numbers and dates

Tomorrow is round 2, part 2 of chemo. I still haven't bounced back from part 1, so, not really feeling quite ready. A few people have lamented bloggers lack of a calendar, so here's the rundown on my schedule:

9/10- Round 2, part 2
9/24- Round 3, part 1
10/1- Round 3, part 2
10/15- Round 4, part 1
10/22- Round 4, part 2
11/5- Round 5, part 1
11/12- Round 5, part 2
11/26- Round 6, part 1
12/3- Round 6, part 2
(all Wednesdays)

So, part 1 is cisplatin into my abdomen, and taxol into an IV (the hardest week), part 2 is taxol into my abdomen (an easier treatment), then week 3 with no chemo.


The really encouraging thing that happened last week is my CA-125 numbers have dropped significantly!!! Before surgery- 1,500; after surgery- 185; and after the first round of chemo- 14. That's an awfully small looking number compared to 1,500!!! But apparently the numbers can fluctuate during treatment, so I'm going to try hard to not obsess about them.

But, (yay!)
