Roller coaster sized drop!

Met with the oncologist again today. There was a HUGE drop in my HCG! Yippeee! I am now at 3700, which is a significant improvement. I don't need to meet with him again. I have never been so excited to have someone leave my life (and I told him

My OB can follow me now. I still have to have weekly blood work to make sure it goes to negative, but this is amazing news. I honestly think it is divine intervention.

They didn't even tell me this was a possibility two weeks ago. The best and craziest news is that he said today that they do NOT believe it was ever a molar pregnancy...just a normal miscarriage behaving like a mole. Amazing news. Believing in the power of prayer!

Good-ish news

Yesterday I met with the oncologist for the follow-up appointment. It was encouraging and confusing all at the same time. The pathology report DOES NOT suggest a molar pregnancy, although it can not be completely ruled out. My HCG levels have gone down slightly...which we are hoping is a good sign. Won't really know what all of this means until next weeks appointment. More waiting and seeing. My favorite. At this point, I am clinging to the GREAT news that I am not starting chemo this week and maybe not ever (please God!). So...keep the prayers and good thoughts coming my way. I think they are paying off!

The waiting game....

Met with the oncologist yesterday. He is waiting for some more test results and the pathology report to come back. We meet again on Thursday to discuss "options". We'll see. Right now, I am hoping it was a lab error. I realize the likelihood of this isn't great, but is getting me through the weekend.

My friends and family have been awesome this week. Thanks for all the phone calls/emails/texts/cards. You all rock. Thank you. I am blessed.

Levels on the rise...AGAIN

Well, I had the second d&c and all seemed to go well. I have still been having the pregnancy symptoms, but it seemed that everything was ok. Until yesterday. My hcg is back up to 18000. Today I have to drive to Cleveland and meet with my doctor and the oncologist. This is a doctor that I was never hoping to have to meet. We will talk about my "options".
