Hi everyone, i am back, cause i am waiting again. After a good scan a few months ago my cea is creeping up again. from 2.0 to 4 in 3 months. bilirubin is up a bit 1.00 to 1.5.
I am on the 7th round of xeloda with the last to be next month. now i have to go early on dec. 2nd for blood work so they have the next cea reading, while i am there. I had a mammogram and am waiting for those results. So its gonna be a long week.
I am going to north carolina for thanksgiving. the pa. side is coming to meet with the fl. branch. Lots of fun planned and again I must keep quiet til i have the results. Again i must live with the knowledge that i have to tell my family the beast is back. And again i use you all to vent so i can get through this celebration without ruining it for everyone. I may be premature, but for me a rising cea has always meant it was back. even these low numbers are how it started before. so it seems i am back where i started. waiting, and you all know what that is like.
but while i wait, i will count my blessings and send prayers to you all for a blessed thanksgiving. i plan to suck up every bit of laughter,give out lots of hugs and sit back and watch my amazing family enjoy each other.
Peace be with you all and thanks for listening. i will keep you posted.
