Not the Greatest News

Just what I needed this weekend..

So, I've been hibernating since my mom's appointment last week with the Doc. It was time again to review her latest scans. I tried not to have too much scanxiety - but it was hard. Especially since she had to stop the cisplatin in the beginning of this chemo course.

The news was not the fantastic news we've come to expect. While her one remaining "original" tumor had shrunk since the last CT, she now has a new (not small) tumor on her liver.

The Doc put her on a new chemo regimen - Taxol. With this, she's 3 weeks on, 1 week off (rather than 2 on/1 off) and if all goes well, he may remove that 1 off week. Plus the side effects are a bit more severe.

But we move on. And pray for the best.
