Doctor appointment

Mom received good news on Monday at her appointment with Dr. Porubcin. Her CA125 count went down a couple more points to 16, an all time low since I can't remember when. All of her counts are good and she isn't having any other symptoms (bloating, etc) as well. Dr. Porubcin felt that things are going good so he is going to see her again in July. She will have to have her port flushed every four weeks (or rather try to flush the port - it hasn't been working properly the last two times) and also continue to do her Lovenox twice a day.

Dr. Porubcin also received some paperwork on ordering more Doxil (finally). Since it is back in production I guess the company is getting ready to distribute again. He is going to send it in and be prepared in case she should need it in the future.

Looks like it is going to be a nice summer!
