Back on the chemo track

I had Abraxane and Avastin today for the first time in five weeks. They were so busy at the Cancer Institute (90 patients!) because of the Independence Day holiday on Monday. It took four hours from arrival to finish, but I also got my monthly Xgeva and didn't mind waiting for that for a few minutes. I go back tomorrow for Neulasta so that the chemo combo doesn't drop my white blood cell counts too far.

If the Abraxane/Avastin combo dropped my tumor marker by 150+ points in four doses (it fell by more than half of the highest point), do you think that four more doses will bring my CA 27.29 to zero? 

And wouldn't that be great?!
