Dad's Chemo January 3, 2011

Hi Everyone,

Well dad's chemo went good again yesterday. We got a double dose of the Herceptin since we won't be going in next week (because of our trip to Florida!) My dad's weight was good, back up a few pounds from last week. His white blood count was good, it was 1,700. His whole blood was good at 10.1 too. We stayed with the same chemo this week, the doctor seemed happy with the CEA from last week even though we were worried about it being up a couple of points. It seems like it has to fluctuate more than a few points to really be a scare. The more we heard the doctor and nurse talk on Monday, it seems like the news we got last week with the CAT scan was more on the positive side than we thought, sometimes it's really hard to understand exactly what the doctor and nurse are communicating because we are so new to all of this...

We won't be around next week because we are going to Orlando, Florida for a vacation but will go in for chemo again on the 17th. I will keep you updated and hopefully share a few pictures from our vacation!
Take care and God Bless!

Love always,

Have I told you lately that I love you Dad?

You'll always be my Hero!
