Sherryl met with her oncologist today and learned that her tumor marker has dropped from 168 in February to 107 today. This is great news! Sherryl's oncologist also told her that she is anemic again, so a course of shots were prescribed to boost her red blood cell count.
The timeframe for the next bone scan was also discussed today; the next one will probably be scheduled for 8 weeks or two chemotherapy cycles from now.
Except for some fatigue, Sherryl is doing well. Her appetite is good and she feels OK. She experiences no nausea and, in general, is thrilled to be able to function fully under the current treatment plan.
Sherryl needed to stop into the clinic yesterday and one of the nurses approached her to tell her she had a "message from a friend." Nancy, who has moved on to her new job, had asked the nurse to tell Sherryl hello for her. Sherryl was truly touched that Nancy had thought to send her that message.
Sherryl continues to work at Day Care every day and this weekend will entail attending Austin's last Little League game, a massage, and spending time with family.
All things considered, life is pretty good right now and we're all grateful for it.
