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.

Encouraging News Before the Weekend

Just wanted to let all of you know that Judy's CA-125 decreased a tiny bit from 142 to 140 between her last regular chemo five weeks ago and this week's start of the new regimen.

We had expected the cancer markers to start soaring since the treatment seemed to have lost its punch and the interval was so long--a full five weeks. The fact that everything esssentially stayed stable is really encouraging to us.

Let's see what this new treatment is going to do and whether we can get a better hold on that damn old cancer.

Hi Judy!
Wow-that is encouraging news!

Last night it was a balmy 19F! Springtime in northern VT..gotta love it. Still a little bit of snow hanging around.

Of course our first "official" sign of spring was a black bear stopping by the other morning to empty the bird feeders. Time to pack them away until Fall.
