It’s a little good news but I’ll take it! My oncologist asked me the color of the fluid they drained from my abdomen (btw, there was no analysis of the fluid — this was purely therapeutic). I told him it was clear yellowish and brownish. He was pleased to hear it since it means that there wasn’t a lot of cancer cells in the fluid (red would have indicated cancer cells).
I’ll probably find out my CA125 number by Wednesday. I’ll let you guys know if the chemo is working. I’m going to be pretty bumming if it’s not.

BTW, this is the chemo drug I’m using. I was concerned to see that I need to stay away from those who have had the polio vaccine, my doctor didn’t tell me that!
