July 30: Day 60

Take Four! I have written this post four times and each time have been booted off and no post appears. I will not beat around the bush.

AFP tumor marker is DOWN significantly to 8979. Last month it was 13,870 and it was more than 16,000 at diagnosis. We are definitely headed in the right direction after a very rough week at Cancer Camp Doyle. All other liver function numbers are also down, which is leading Dr. Karwal to believe that the tumor is shrinking, and that liver function is improving. 

We will visit Iowa City again in August, and then rescan in September. I will provide more detail as soon as the MyChart files are live and I am on a more stable internet connection. Thank you again for all the love and prayers. We feel them and appreciate them all.
