I just want to say in this situation I love sounding like a broken record. My CEA was taken again last thursday before my erbitux treatment. Kathy...wonderful Kathy called today to first remind me the normal range for people's CEA is 0-2.5. Oh.......mine just happens to be 2.5!! Say what, say what, say what now!!!!????? I am still stunned and absorbing this beautiful news. And I give every bit of greatness and glory to Jesus Christ almighty.
This cancer and stage that I have is as crappy as it gets. I am really lucky to be alive right now. Like a lot of my compadres that I have become friends with who are in the same situation I am we have all been told at some stage, that you know "you have some bad luck here." One doctor told me the best thing I could do was get my kids genetically tested. There's no point in much else.
So when I hear from Kathy what I heard today I just felt like I was in heaven on earth. Everything else is gravy. Last week (before this news) I was meeting with Dr. Moriarty and I was thanking him for continuing to believe in me and believing in doing everything for me. Of course he just shrugs it off like he doesn't do anything. My point is God kicks butt and miracles happen slow and through many forms but they are happening to me because God is good.
I am not glad I have cancer, but I am glad it is going away and I am very, very humbled by how incredible things are going and the continued support I continue to get in so many forms from so many people.
Thank you and lets keep praying for each other. We all need it.
