:) CA19-9 down 35% from last time :)

As Sandi said, cycle 8 started today. Her CA19-9 tumor marker test result is in, and it continues down. It fell from about 35% from 609 (2/11) to 397 (2/25). This is the span of just one chemo cycle. This is encouraging as it's the best single cycle decrease (percentage wise) yet.

There are 5 planned cycles left. Please pray that the treatments continue to be effective. We would like to see this number at zero and stay there.

Even though these numbers are encouraging, it's been a very hard couple of weeks for Sandi which included discouraging news from one of her chemo-buddies. Please pray that God will comfort and encourage both Sandi and her friend. There is really nothing like this.
