Just checking in

Sorry I haven't been around, I just haven't had much to say.

So far, all is well with the vaccine. My upper arm where the shots were given is so sore and swollen - I'll have to take a picture and post it. A swollen arm sure beats the alternative though ;) I do have to figure out a way to protect it. There is a heck of a lot of arm slapping, shoulder grabbing and squeezing that happens in daily life. Does anyone have any ideas for me on how to protect it?

I forgot to report that my CA125 was dropping again, even before the vaccine started. It seemed like it went up into the 300's, then dropped into the 100's, then 79 (right before the vaccine). Now it is 45. I hope it keeps going down this time.

I feel fine, and continue to notice my energy levels rising. Now I just need to motivate myself to get off my butt! That is sure hard to do in the winter time. But spring is right around the corner, and our weather this weekend has been in the 50's (Fahrenheit). Also the sun is shining longer which feels good too!

I hope everyone is well. I'll try to be back soon :)
