Stage IV to NED

It's been a while since I have reported on this forum so I thought I'd take a minute and give an update.  My 4th surgery (liver resection) was on April 19th.  Since the surgery my CEA has come in under one (<1). Treatment 10 of 12 of Folfiri/Erbitux will be this Thursday. Erbitux Achne and extreme fatigue are increasingly challenging but I'm managing to land on my feet!  This home nurse didn't show up to disconnect this last treatment so I did it my self...  Imagine that, after eleven treatments of FOLFOX/Oxaliplatin and nine treamtents of Folfir/Erbitux I am finally firing the home nurse and doing my own disconnect. lol 

Glory and Praise to Jesus Christ!

Prayers, Love, Light and Positive Energy to all of you!

So happy to hear that surgery went well, and you're back to NED.  Now this time stay there for a long time (maybe 20 years or so), ok?!?

Hugs from AA
