The good news is that the blood tests conducted this morning show that the key indicator looked for has jumped from 0.9 to 2.9 in the last week!
The so-so news is that, based on careful consideration and discussion with the appropriate doctor, we have decided to go ahead with the last chemo therapy session. We gotta do everything we can that may make a positive difference. We will not be using the cisplatin, but a derivative that will not have nearly the negative effects on my digestive tract or hearing. Its called ‘Carboplatin‘. The documentation on the drug shows that it potentially has the same side effects as the cisplatin, but, as mentioned, the doctor assures us that the effects are minimal for most people.
So, tomorrow we go forward with the last chemo.
And, yes, I did order a new motorcycle.
