Mom just called from sissy's oncologist appointment. I knew it wasn't going to be good since she waited so long. When it's good news I always hear from mom right away. Sissy's appointment was at 9 am.
Anyway, tumor marker numbers went UP. They went from 307 to 351. We're moving in the opposite direction here. Mom said the doctor said this can be normal, the numbers can flucuate and that he isn't going to change her drug protocol. He also said it had nothing to do with the 25% cut in one of her chemo drugs, it's just something "normal" that can happen.
CT scan looked good. Mom "said" the lungs appear to be clean now and tumors have shrunk in the liver.
Still not the news we wanted to hear.
Have I said I hate fucking cancer?
