Chemo working :-)

Standard

Just a quick update….on Tuesday Kevin had blood work done to check a few things.  His tumor marker that was previously off the charts…..is rapidly plummeting!  It was at a peak of 625,000….after round one it came down to 220,000…..after round two it is down to 5,500.    That is some major progress!  (the goal is to have the number be less than 2.5).

An MRI of the brain was completed yesterday.  Kevin did well with the medication that we were given for him to take prior to the test and was able to be very relaxed and complete the MRI without any difficulty.  We have not yet gotten the results yet, but are hoping that they will be available tomorrow as we meet with some additional specialists to discuss some of the ‘next step’ treatment options for after the initial treatment of 4 rounds of chemotherapy (VIP) is completed.

Monday will be the start of round 3.  Back to Community Memorial Hospital in the morning on Monday, for some more cancer killing cocktail.  Another week closer to kicking cancer’s ass!
