Things are shaping up for old Liz Lemon

To continue my streak of positive energy, I have some great news to share! When I arrived at chemo this morning, my kickass chemo nurse Sheila couldn’t contain herself. Before I walked into the room she told me that she had just checked my tumor marker and my CA125 levels had come down from 60 to 34!!!! That’s major. Especially considering that I need to get ย below 21 and have two full cycles left. I’m making giant steps in the right direction. This is a huge relief considering last time it only went down from 64 to 60. Even though it went down I was disappointed and worried that this great new treatment wasn’t working. All of the nasty side effects are worth this type of news. In other news, I gained 5 lbs wooo! I also start with my trainer next week.

all good things ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. You have given me the greatest news any Mother could want today. All of your hard work is paying off! Just keep believing and knowing that there is an end to this unreal chapter in your life… and that from that you will have blossomed in ways no one could imagine. Love you forever…. your grateful Mom.

  2. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I still get nervous every time my CA125 is checked and I know your pure relief and gratitude for the good news. 21 is a very magic number and my prayers continue toward that goal for you. You’re getting there! Those nasty drugs still have some work to do and I know they (and you) can do it.

  3. Hi Jess,
    Jess, so very happy for you and your family. Everything has it’s own time and this is your time to celebrate. Just own it , you deserve it, and know that your faith and strong spirit may not seem like enough at times, but miracles do happen when your heart and eyes are wide open to receive them! Love you, Mary
