Doctor visit

Me and Scott at the BIX 7
Mom had a port flush, blood count and doctor visit last week. Her CA 125 is down to 35 - which is great and is as expected. Dr. Porubcin said a while back that it would fluctuate so as long as it is fluctuating down... that is the way we want it to go. She will see him again in three months to check counts and will do the port maintenance every 4-5 weeks or so.

We didn't see much of each other this weekend because it was BIX 7 weekend for me (yes I cut my hair and bleached it blonde) and Scotty and we ran a very cold race Saturday morning. It was cloudy and barely reached 60 degrees. Scotty did great (51 minutes) while I shuffled along and came in at 1 hour and 20 minutes. I had to stop and walk at mile 6 too. I would much rather run in hot weather for sure. Luckily Tom was at the end of the race ready to warm me up. He has put up his running shoes in favor of waiting for me to finish and enjoying a cigar in the process. My brother and sister-in-law were also at the finish line as well and I have to say that it is nice having people cheering for you at the end.

  1. Get well soon to your mom, Holly! I hope she'll heed to Dr. Porubcin's advice. Well, your mom needs your help, care, and support. Don't make her feel that you're not caring for her. I remember my mom who's kinda hard-headed when it came to medication. It's just recently when she followed the doctor’s orders since she loved her new doctor. :)
