Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

CA-125 holding steady

This morning, Judy saw Dr. Phillips after undergoing chemo #14 on Tuesday. Her CA-125 dropped by 2 points over the past five weeks, to 74, essentially the same as last time. Obviously, we would have been more excited about a significant drop, but this is certainly better than a rise. As long as the downward trend continues, we won't complain.

After coming back from Europe late last Sunday, Judy has been at work again and I started the new semester at TTU yesterday. This weekend is my 54th birthday, so once again I'll be caught up with Judy age-wise. :) As has been tradition, Wayne and Lorane will join us for dinner, and since Emily won't start back up at Tarleton until Tuesday she'll join us.

A bigger drop in the CA-125 would have been a nice birthday present....

Hi Judy and Jurgen,

So glad that the CA-125 is at least showing a downward trend... we'll look for a bigger drop next time. Take care and stay warm!!!

Hi Judy!
Just stopping by to say "hi". We're having a "January thaw" up here ....biking with temps in the 30s feels like a heatwave!

Happy Birthday, Jurgen!
And Happy New Year Judy and Jurgen!
This CA -125 and its progenitor look like things that can be managed, with the good help of Dr. Philips. We're thinking of you often. Your lives seem to be so full, even through the difficulties. You have obviously done so many things right for yourselves and others.
