All were good. Liver enzymes slightly up but still well within normal- I blame GFMPH for this (and I thank you, he needed that!) :)
His blood counts (CBC) have actually rose a bit which puts them in good normal range, they were on the quite low-normal side. Creatinine was nice and low.
His PSA dipped a tiny bit to 0.17 from 0.20!! Again I blame GFMPH :)
So.... stable and holding.....
I have some emails out, more to compose, and hoping that when he has the scans repeated they are stable as well.
Looking into other markers and tests, possible some of the clinical trial imaging studies. This weekend is going to be spent chasing information, gathering info, appeals and finding money under rocks and maybe buried treasure or a money tree in the far back yard that we haven't explored since we moved here. Also trying to gather and apply for some of the assistance programs to free up money for the dental stuff. Suddenly panicked this afternoon waiting for PSA thinking I screwed up bad by putting it off- thinking what if his psa jumped and needs treatment now and can't? I don't like that feeling at all, makes me sick to my stomach to think about. I can't do that again.
Thank you to all for support, information and taking the time to post information that is relevant and useful. I am hard at work here, the information isn't being wasted. I just wish I had more time in a day.
JNF- We need to meet you and Lee at the Pizza place in Avalon you mentioned very soon before Paul has GFMPH withdrawals!
