She is getting toxal and ifosamade.Today the doctor said the tumor in her abdonmon was at 6 CM now it is at 4CM's that was good news her CA-1235 was 77 the last time after surgery now it is 64.

That sounds like good news. Stability with this disease is about the best news I ever get or even expect anymore. Where does your mother live? I live in Alberta, Canada. I receive treatment in the small city I live in and also at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary. So far I have had surgury, 9 taxol/carbo , second surgury, 3 caelyx, 2 ifos/cis, 3 topotecan. Between the ifos/cis - topotecan I have had a lot of speading. Lungs, liver, a few bones, throughout my abdonmon. However, I have not lost hope. I may try Gemcitabine and Cisplatin next. The good news about MMMT is that there is no news. There is not enough data to draw conclusions, in my opionion. Anyhow I have been at this since March 06 and still feeling ok. I hope that your mom is getting the best care available. My CA-125 is not a good marker for me. As it has always been low. Stay strong. You remain in my prayers.

This is positive. Any shrinking tumors or decreased CA-125 is good news! There is no new developing cancer cells which is a major plus. Please keep up updated on her progress, keep your head up & have faith.
I pray for her health & your strength

I was just wondering how you are feeling? My Mom is in the hospt doing round three of Chemo. She is handling tghe Ifex better now that they lowered the dose. I just hope it works the same and knocks the beast out of her. Mom was really mean to me the other day and I cant beleave what she said , She wished this cancer on me because I was tring to get ger ready to leave the house so she could get her chemo,She need to be at the hospt by 12 noon it is a 45 min drive I woke her up a 9:20 am at 11:15 she still was not dressed and ready to go she started yelling at me and said that . I am hurt i still love my Mom but I feel I need to be away from her for a bit. My brother says I am wrong. she is dieing and I should let it roll off my back. Whats your feelings.
