1st Erbitux + Chemo Session

I will update quickly tonight although truly not in the mood. Karen went back on chemo last Thursday (Feb 7th). Her new protocol is CPT-11 (chemo) every three weeks and Erbitux every week. This will continue for 12 weeks at which point a PET and CT scan will be repeated.

Erbitux is scheduled again on Thursday the 14th, (Valentine's Day).

Karen's baseline CEA from last Thursday is 230. Before surgery it was way down in double digits so this is quite a jump. However we must remind ourselves that she's been off chemo for some many months. Hopefully the next measurement will be lower.
