Today we started the first treatment of the second round of this series. I am happy to report that Emsnana's CA19-9 has gone down to 136, which is good news after completing one round after the break. So Gemzar has not started failing yet! We just got back from a pleasant week in Seattle, helping our oldest Seattle granddaughter celebrate her 16th birthday and meeting their latest family addition, Daisy the cockapoo. We were able to fly back in international business class, which meant lie-flat seats, which was a treat. So a very restful week indeed. After today's treatment, we went to our youngest daughter's for the weekend to,pick up our newest additipn, a wire-haired terrier mix. We had been talking about getting another dog to replace our recently departed Jack Russell. So we stopped at Best Friends animal rescue and picked up Rumor (my name). Of course I think part of my wife and daughter's plan was that I have a companion to keep me company over the next several years. Thus far Emsnana has defied the odds, so maybe she'll be around to help me care for Rumor😄. Of course, since she continues to respond to treatment, clinical trials are for the moment off the table. But I'm not complaining. It's been almost two years since her dx, and she continues to do well.
So happy for the good numbers for Emsnana.
Sorry we didn't have better weather for you here in Seattle. I'm sure your new family member, Rumor will settle in soon, and be a lovely addition.
Enjoy your children, grandchildren and animal-companions!
