Counting Down. . . .

I was all calm and stuff, but I guess I read too much online.

The more I read, the less the results of that CA 125 they did seem to matter. I’ve read that some women never have a raised number on that test. I have read that (depending on whose article it is) 20 – 50% of negatives are false negatives. I have read it is NOT a reliable diagnostic tool at all, that it is mainly used to judge how well the cancer is responding to treatment.

I am not sure how to explain how I feel while waiting for the next ultrasound. I am not afraid, I really don’t think I am, but there is this constant roar of uneasiness from “
not knowing”.

26 days to next ultrasound

I hate not knowing. Hang in there, ok? This too shall pass.
