Hi Everyone,
I haven't been here since March when my husband was put on a more aggressive chemo regimen (Avastin + FOLFOX) when the cancer advanced in spite of the first round of chemo after his surgery. A month ago he had his CT scans and this week the oncologist told us the tumors in the mesentary have not grown (maybe have decreased) and his present CEA is at 4. This is extremely heartening news since my guy has been really not feeling well and starting to get discouraged with the fatigue of 1 year of weekly/every-other-week treatments. Due to a rectal irritation (like he almost faints whenever he has a bowel movement) the doctor is giving him a break in the treatment for a month.
One of my original concerns was about my husband taking a leave of absence from his job. He loves not working! But we don't love having no income. We're putting that concern aside now while we fight the good fight and revel in the victory of positive results. I've gone back to read through the lines and you are all in my prayers. Such wonderful, hope-filled people!
