I went in today for my bi-weekly treatment and decided to ask the nurse what my tumor markers were from my last visit since I had not received a "call". Well, seems the little suckers have gone up 10 points and, as you all know, this isn't the best news to get. Hopefully, it hasn't come back. The nurse spoke with the doctor and he said they would probably do scans again. I saw the doctor in the hallway on my way out and ask him myself about the markers. He told me not to worry we would talk about it at my next visit and probably do scans. What is there to "talk" about...I thought. My file is sitting on the desk to schedule my scans. Will probably have CT and Bone scans again. I am so sick of this mess....just want it to go away! Please again keep me in your prayers. Will post when I find out scan dates.

Munch, please muster those positive thoughts and think about all the great things you want to do how much joy each will bring. Please do one tomorrow.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm going to plant some bulbs right now and I'll tell you about the blooms in the spring. Any special requests?
Awww... I wish I was there so we could sit on the couch, eat m&ms, and watch sappy movies together-- until you felt like yourself again. -janie

Keeping you in prayers.
Munch, I just heard there was a programme coming on BBC radio 4 , made by people who have been through all this and sounds like they will be talking about ups and downs, they are survivors and I'm sure they have had similar moments, some of them. I will try and listen or see if it is on playback, online.
