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 on the way down, once again

This morning we received excellent news from Dr. P's office. After four weekly mini-rounds of chemo and a week off, Judy's CA-125 dropped from 140 in late March to 114 on Tuesday. Of course, we hope that this trend will continue. Judy is scheduled for another mini-chemo next Tuesday before we go on our mini-vacation to Jamaica. She'll be off the following week before going to three-weeks-on, one-week-off.

We had an inkling that things were working with the current mixture of poisons as Judy's hair has once again started to fall out. The photo of Judy and Alan shows how "light" her hair has become, and next week we may have to go back to the all-bald look.

Have fun in Jamaica! We're currently digging out from a "freak" snowstorm Tuesday/Wed. We just got our power back this afternoon!

Yipeeeeeeee!!!! Excellent news. The good thing is your hair will always grow back. We just don't want those tumors to grow back. Just wear your hat in Jamaica and you'll be fine...nice warm breezes, salt air, a few Pina Coladas and all will be right with the world. Relaaaaax,and enjoy.
Love, love, love, LoWayne
