I have seen the stats on my page counter turning pretty rapidly since I got home about an hour ago, so I figured I better update, even if we don't know a lot. The preliminary report on the CT scan is that Erin's tumor area hasn't really changed one way or another since late August. There have been many times in the past when unchanged was a satisfying outcome, but after doing two round of IV chemo we were hoping for more. We won't have the final report or the report on the bone scan until Thursday.
As it stands now, we have to make some decisions about what to do next. If we continue doing what we've done, we won't start that until October 30. If we change things up and choose a trial, Erin wouldn't be eligible to start something new until October 28. That gives us a reasonable window (two weeks) to consider our options.
For the record, Erin's labs today were mostly good:
HGB 9.9 (the transfusion seems to have stuck)
WBC 4800 (close to normal)
ANC 2900 (normal, and to me shocking, since she has never been this high on Day 12 of the previous nine round of this chemo combo)
PLT 24,000 (not good for soccer or kick boxing, but not quite to the point where we transfuse)
