More Good News

Well the summer is over but the excitement of life continues. I have been off of chemo (cpt-11) since july 11th. I am still on Erbitux (the rash stuff). I had my CEA levels done and got the call on monday. I don't usually fret over the number too much as long as they continue to go down but I was very apprehensive over this one. If my numbers went up significantly it was not only back to chemo but that also meant the tumors are more active. Well the ever lovely Kathy called and said it was 3.2! What a beautiful number. I was so stunned and so very happy. This means another whole month of freedom.

I continue to pray for everyone.

Love,
Karen
