Psalm 118:17

I will not die, but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

I received my Herceptin today and then saw Dr. McKeen after my infusion. Unfortunetly, my tumor markers have sky rocketed. I went from 450 to 2800. I have been in a lot of pain lately because of the fluid on my abdomen and have put on about 9lbs. in fluid since last Tuesday. So, tomorrow I am going to Good Samaratin Hospital to have the fluid drained and to start back on chemotherapy. I will have three weeks on and one week off. I was not completely surprised. I was never convinced that the fluid was coming from my liver. I know my body and this is just how I felt before. So, I knew it was the cancer on my omentum. However, I am still dissappointed. I was just getting a taste of feeling better and being independant and here we go again. I was hoping that my journey had come to an end, but I guess God is not done with me yet. It will be a different drug this time. I will not be able to get the last one again due to my allergic reaction to it.
I told Maddie tonight and she burst into tears. Once again, she is the hardest part to all of this.
I will keep you posted as to how everything goes tomorrow.


  1. Love you Kelly. I know this is a blow to have to go back on the chemo. I'm glad you got a break, if only for a short time to regain some strength and normalcy. We are continuing to pray and believe! It seems like so much to ask to have you going through this yet again- I don't understand. I do understand though that God is SO big and is in control. He is big and He is right there with you- that I understand. Guess that will have to be enough right now. Love you.

  2. Kelly,
    I am so sorry to hear you have to go back on the chemo again so soon. We are praying for you, Ian, Parker, and your darling Maddie. Stay in God's Word and let me know if we can do anything for you.
    Debbie and family
