I completed my 18 week course of chemotherapy in late March and recovered quickly from the minimal side effects.  No hair loss!   John and I celebrated the end with a trip to Hawaii.  The warm breezes and beautiful sunsets were very healing.  Unfortunately my Ca125 tumor marker was still mildly elevated though much improved.  The PET scan showed no evidence of cancer; everyone at the cancer clinic was amazed! Now I will be receiving Avastin infusions every 3 weeks for maintenance treatment.  Luckily it has no significant side effects.

I am back to work full time now with almost full energy.

Then today I learned that my Ca 125 is in the normal range for the first time in over 18 months!  Alleluia!
