Checkup time

Mom has a port flush scheduled at Trinity on Monday. The nurses will take some blood to do the counts and see where the CA125 is at. The following Monday (Nov. 12) Dr. Porubcin will review her numbers (which will be good hopefully) and then maybe she can get through the holidays without any issues.

She is still doing the Lovenox doses twice a day, and she would like to get back down to one shot a day but seems like when she does that, then the blood clots start appearing.

The last time she met with Dr. Porubcin he mentioned that they had a supply of Doxil in again, so if she needs to do more chemo in the future, that will be available. If that is good news, I don't know. I don't want her numbers to go up to where she would need more chemo. She doesn't have any other symptoms (bloating, bowel issues) so that's a good sign.
