Meg and I (Jane!) went to hospital again today for a blood test and to see if she needed to continue with her injections in her leg to boost her immunity. Her bloods were good and her neutrophils were almost normal which was great. The BEST news is that the recent AFP (Alpha Feta Protein) tumour marker which was the indicator of the fact that her cancer had reared it's very ugly head again, and was starting to creep up, is starting to go down! That means that the chemo is doing what it should and we're hoping that it also means that her tumours have shrunk and she is able to have surgery to remove them.
Meg was D E L I G H T E D!!!! And so she should be! She's had the most miserable summer holiday and it really brought it home today when I took her into school and all of the other children were talking about all the wonderful, exciting things they'd done, and in contrast, Meg had gone through two cycles of chemo. We're definitely not "out of the woods" yet, but at least we're heading in the right direction.
And Meggie needs more comments!!! Where are you Uncle Simon??? Has your hangover gone yet??!! :) Happy Birthday Aunty Tracey!!! XXXX
