Here is an update after today, treatment number 6
PSA: 39.57, down from 41.98
Not a lot, but a baby step in the right direction!
Chemo again is being tolerated very well. I'll likely be up tonight watching the final season of 'The Wire', perhaps
reading a little, likely praying a lot.
My INR (Coumadin marker) is now up to 1.8 and the doc raised my dosage with the hope we'll get it over the required level of 2.0
by next Monday. I sure hope so, I tired of injecting myself in the stomach. I am bruised all the way across my abdomen.
Friday is our forth annual golf tournament, a sold out affair. If all goes according to plan we will have raised $100,000 is three years!!
Life is a so many things; a blessing, a challenge, painful, joyful, peaceful!
Blessing to all of you, whatever that means to you individually.
