Topic: Teddy's Turn - Update
We visited the ONC today and the LAB report was very good except.....his CA9 jumped from 11 to 56. The ONC said we should not be concerned at this point as this sometimes happens from having a Whipple. Yah, well it has not happened in 4 years! I am calling the radiologist Tuesday as he wanted a PET Scan this month anyway, hopefully before my surgery and the ONC feels it is the best way to check out everything. Now you are maybe asking, how can T & E handle all this. Like I say, it is what it is and when we know for sure we do what has to be done! Oh, his bilirubin was perfect. I tell you he is always trying to upstage me! I just can't have my own cancer time! One cute thing as we were saying bye to the ONC he turns to us and says, see you in 2 months we like the nice people to come back! Love, Love , love our doctors.
