Sunday, January 13, 2008: The Countdown Begins Again

Well, tomorrow we start chemo again. Kristi's last CA125 level was 45. Her oncologist indicated that it will have gone up since the last check...he just didn't give us an indication whether it would go up by 5, 10, 50 or 200, so we have no idea what to expect tomorrow. But whatever the case, the CA125 countdown begins again.

Remember, we need her CA125 level to be 35 or below - so that's what we'll start tracking once again. Each time we go in for chemo they will check it - so once a month. Please pray for Kristi tomorrow as we have no idea what to expect with this new chemo. Also pray that no matter what her new CA125 level is that we won't be too disappointed. Like I said, we have no idea what it will be and for how long she will have to do chemo again. Towards the end of last year she was really getting quite tired of the chemo please pray that she will have the strength to endure an unknown number of rounds of chemo.

Also, as a reminder, we no longer have the prayer pager. Rich and Mary Elling now have the prayer pager. It works the same way. Whenever you say a prayer for Rich and Mary, call the pager.

Thanks for the prayers and we'll update the blog tomorrow night with her new CA125 level.
