I'm seriously freaking out a bit now. Got my wife's CA19-9 from yesterday. It was 65 two weeks ago, which was concerning because the highest it had ever been was 69 when she was first diagnosed a year ago.

It was 171. 😱😭

Here's what the history chart now looks like.

I would seriously be losing it if she hadn't just had a CT scan a week ago that showed no growth of anything, but this is really scary. Any prayers, karma, blessings, or whatever are seriously appreciated right now.

Prayers coming - but, what does that number mean?
Sorry, I meant to explain that. I'm a bit scatter brained right now. It's the tumor marker for pancreatic cancer. It's a substance produced by cancer cells, or by normal cells in response to cancer. You can think of it like looking at white blood cell counts to determine if someone has an infection. A high number isn't necessarily indicative of anything, but an upward trend is a sign that chemo isn't working and cancer is spreading.
