Positive Signs

A quick update with some good news…

My most-recent blood test shows that both relevant tumor markers are trending downward.  While clearly still above acceptable levels, the trend is a good one.  So, chemo continues next week (Wednesdays!) for a couple more months.

By the by, liver numbers look good, too.  I may have to reintroduce myself to my Scottish friend, Auchentoshan, who’s been kind of lonely, of late.

    Great news. Good reason to celebrate.

    Very cool. Do they think that the positive trend can be attributed to the experimental stuff you were also taking? Btw, Auchentoshan sounds like an Assyrian tyrant. Great name for an adult beverage.

      Wasn’t taking anything experimental. It was a vaccination study, but that didn’t work, as the tumors came back. Anyway, funny about Auchentoshan. Definitely NOT a tyrant.
