Well, I call the office today. They have me come in to get the results. The ascites is back (I knew in my heart it was because of slight'ish bloating) and her words "It's a little bit not good". Some of the seeding is becoming active again. She didn't give me a copy of the results. Didn't even have them in her hand.
We are introducing oxaliplatin again on Thursday then I fly out right after to go on our mini vacation. Oh Joy. Going to where it is colder with the oxaliplatin cold hand syndrome.
On Thursday I will try to get my hands on the results. I Don't Get It. My CEA is dropping again but the ascites is showing its ugly head.
I had my little breakdown and hopefully got it out of my system. I sure as hell can't cry when I get back on that damned oxaliplatin.
Well that's it in a nutshell. I hope that the oxaliplatin knocks those cancer cells back into submission. I did take 5 weeks off (and the CEA dropped during that time!) to enjoy the kids and grandkids. We made some happy memories. Time to scratch Yellowstone off my bucket list. We are staying in a cabin just 5 minutes from the entrance. I finally get to see Old Faithful in real life. I have always wanted to see it since learning about Yellowstone in grade school.
Cancer won't break me and keep me from enjoying life. Dammit!
