Well, I had a bone scan yesterday to see if there has been any new activity since I started Chemo in March. My Onc called
late this afternoon and said the scan was STABLE...Stable is
good !! Everytime I have had a scan the always found new
tumors so stable this is good. Also, My last markers were 294
and the ones they ran on Monday are down to around 201..!
SO I guess all this misery is doing some good.
The plan is next Thursday I will start weekly Taxotere. We
are hoping that doing it weekly will not be so hard on me &
that I dont end up in the hospital or ER....
Thanks for being with me all really make
laugh..The pink boas and Mukaluks and slickers were
great.... tongue
Love and Hugs

I am so happy to hear the word "stable". I'll be toasting you this evening. That is also a big drop in tumor markers. It seems that you misery was to some avail.

Congratulations Sis! Now go and enjoy your holiday weekend.

Love You, Jo-Ann

This has been such an emotional week for me.  You have just ended my week on a high note.  Now my tears are tears of joy!
Prayers will continue for the weekly treatment.  May it work and be tolerable.

That is wonderful news.  Good luck with the Taxotere.  I was on it and it wasn't too bad.  The first treatment caused no side effects for me.
