    :) Down is good!
    My understanding is if CEA is an indicator for someone, a decrease in CEA would mean a decrease in tumour load.

    Yes Yes
    Yes Yes Yes, if his CEA continues to decline, the tumor activity is also declining which means, most of the time, smaller.

    Good Job - Tina

    It sounds like things are moving in a positive direction for Jorge, I'm so happy for the both of you.
