Psalm 118:17

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

Chemo went well yesterday. My blood counts were good, so it was ok to start the chemo again. She did tumor markers last week and the results were good. She checks three different tumor markers on me. Two are for breast and one is for my abdomen. The two breast markers are stable and the abdomen came down 200 points from last month, but are still high. It looks like the cancer is responding to this chemo. I am thrilled that the breast is stable and I'm happy that the abdomen is going down instead of up. Every little bit of progress is a step in the right direction. It gives me what I need to sit there and get another dose of chemo.
I had signed up to take Parker on his field trip to the pumpkin patch today, not knowing that I would be getting chemo the day before. I woke up feeling ok this morning and decided I would still go. I couldn't disappoint him. I promised him I would be there. So, we went and got breakfast together and then met his class at the pumpkin patch. I started feeling a little nauseous while I was there, but I did good. I made it through the field trip and enjoyed being with him. I'm so thankful that I got to go and have that time with him. Hopefully I will remain good through the rest of the week. One day at a time.
