Depending on what the next CA125 number turns out to be, she may have to go through another cycle of the chemo. She was a little disheartened because she thought this would be her last cycle, but, as he said, if it doesn't go down enough then she will need another cycle to bring the count down to where it should be. She could go into February if he feels she needs another cycle.
We had a great Christmas weekend. She spent a couple of days at our house and lost a little sleep because the Rock Island snow plows were going by every 30 minutes to clear the snow. There was a lot of food - we had steaks for Christmas Eve dinner and then plenty of cookies and chocolate nut clusters. The Monday after Christmas we drove to Ottawa to meet up with her cousins Marge & Myrna (from Grandma's side of the family) for lunch at the Cracker Barrel. They looked the same... just a little older, as we all do. It was nice to see them and we all discussed doing the same thing again next year.
