Test and scan this week

Mom had her blood work done yesterday and she has a CT scan tomorrow morning at Hammond Henry. THE REALLY GOOD NEWS is that the last CA125 count was in the 300's so the Doxil is finally pulling the count down. THE OTHER REALLY GOOD NEWS is that as of today, there is more Doxil for a treatment. Trinity received a shipment in so if Dr. Porubcin schedules a chemo session for next week, mom is good to go. She has her checkup with him on Monday at 9:15 a.m. 

Her feet have been much better this time around. They are still red and a bit raw, but at least there are no blisters.  

Unfortunately, "THE" letter came from Caterpillar the other day stating that mom's prescription drug insurance plan was down to the last $5,000. She will go through that very fast as that will barely cover two weeks worth of the Lovenox. Seriously. 

Mom's Plan B is to go with BlueCross BlueShield Medicare Part D. Actually that is her only option - and she'll hit the donut hole faster than a trip to Walgreens. I'm hoping to get some information from Sherry at Dr. Porubcin's office next week. She mentioned some grant possibilities that help patients through the gap period so at least there are some options to check into. Fingers crossed!
