I started my battle on Halloween 2011. That was over 700 days ago (nearly two years). Four surgeries, twenty-two radiation treatments, eleven treatments of FOLFOX and Oxaliplatin, twelve treatments of FOLFIRI and Erbitux, and countless scans later I finally have a legitimate shot at a FULL REMISSION! Praise and Glory be to God!
My next step: Scans on 10/21 (CT Scan, PET Scan, MRI of Liver). If scans show NED then my Onc will monitor CEA levels monthly and scans every two or three months.
I am joyfull but I have to admit that I am also very cautious with my emotions. I don't want to fly too high only to come crashing back into a low. But I am optimistic and hopeful! I know that God has a plan for me and whatever the plan; it is perfect. I just wish I knew the ending of the plan. :-)
God Bless you all and thank you for your support and advice (to me and to each other)!!!
