August 29 & 30, 2011 - Monthly St. Jude Check-up
Courtney had a wonderful monthly check-up yesterday. The melanoma has not spread, and her blood work looked good. They said her liver enzymes were a bit high, but that was from her peginterferon and it was not anything to worry about. She continues to have some achiness, fatigue, and some memory problems. Besides that, she is enjoying her life...doing lots of things with her friends and boyfriend. We are also waiting patiently for Make-a-Wish to come visit. She has been approved, but now it takes 4-8 weeks for MAW to visit the house. She wants to take a Mediterranean Cruise. MAW told me to look up our favorite cruises and countries that we would like to go. Next St. Jude appt is in 4 more weeks.
