hello to everyone.i haven't posted in awhile but have kept everyone in my prayers and thoughts.since my cancer came back in july,i've been on 3 different chemo regiments.the latest is cpt-11 and erbitux(not sure if i spelled that right)i got results of my ct. scan and my oncologist says that my cea has dropped from 98 to 35 and that the cancer in my 2 lymph nodes has shrunk.we finally got some good news! it seems like it's taken forever and it has been a battle,but with news like that,it recharges my batteries for some more fight. i've been down somewhat lately and that's why i haven't posted.but i'm standing again and ready to go!i wanted to share the news with you and i promise not to be so much of a stranger this time.may god bless all cancer patients and their caregivers!

    Hi Lawleete,

    I'm so thrilled to hear that they have found the correct concoction for you. A dropping CEA and shrinking lymph nodes certainly are cause for celebration!

    Your recharged spirit shines through in your post.

    Wishing you well,
