So, we both had our CEA rising, I went on chemo and you didn't, how are you doing? Is your CEA coming down?

I get my CEA checked tomorrow, but won't know anything until next week. Really thinking of stopping chemo if the CEA is below 5 again.

My opinion, not others.

We are both healthy,

We got good looking butts in genes!

Do you see where I am going ?

We got diff genes, different environments, diff diets and supps and juices

Now I pray it's not crc, who knows I don't.

Given crc is a *****h I say it's prudent to avoid it, I just flew around the world in 4 days, to spend the weekend learning from the best functional and integrative doctors on the planet. Where in Chicago.

No other hardcore cancer patients just mad Pete.
That's short for medical alternative Doctor. Well I thought it was funny.

I hope we laugh about our ceas for along time to come.

Be well.

Thanks for asking, I am an emotional basket case at present. Lost too great alt cancer girl friends last week, being survivor I have more soulmates than I carefor.

My mixed up state is a combo of
Jetlag
Seminar high
Grieving
And coming home to chaos.

But that's life.
Hugs,
Pete

Pete the longer I linger with this diseased condition the more I notice how others are no longer with us. At the clinic it seems that there are new faces with an absence of others. Not trying to be morbid or negative but as in all things there are some that fight the fight and win while others, although no less diligent, seem to lose the battle. We all have to do what works for our particular situation and temperament. Pete, I admire your resolve to do it "your way" and the apparent support you have from your family. Blessings to you and a wish for smooth seas and a following breeze. Art

Lets just linger and love a long long life.
The 5 l's,

what will be will be for each of us.

I see flat seas, feel the breast on my back and the sun on my chest.

Breast was a typo, I meant breeze, this spell checker has a sense of humour.

When I do Qigong I rip my shirt off and get Sun, vit d when I can.

Another day, what a gift, I hope I use it wisely.

There's are song about lingering from the cores and another about sailing by criss cross.

Smile today and always art, and linger well.

Lingering is such a good word, it's like the end of the best movie of your life,
you know ithe movie is about to end while savouring the feelings from the movie.

Linger well love and kindness are everywhere, your reply shows that.

I am grateful to have loved my friends at rest, we all have so many here on csn and in our lives.

Gratitude not regret keeps my Hope alive..

Hugs,
Pete

Ps listening to sailing as I make my morning juice
