This is my third set of results since my Liver Ablation in April, and I am happy to report that my CEA continues to drop, going down this time to 3.5.

My Oncologist is still wary, wanting it to drop below 3, but he did give me the all clear to GO TO ENGLAND. WOOOO HOOOO!

I will have my second follow-up CT scan next month, and in September, I will take my chances with these terrorists, and fly home. 

Today is also the one year mark for my last Chemo treatment. 

Just as an aside, on the way home from the big city, we literally out-run a HUGE sand storm (Haboub). It came rolling across the dessert towards I-80. We ran right before it, and watched it cross the road behind us. It was quite scary for a while, wondering if we could keep ahead of it. This is the same kind of storm that killed a friend a few years ago. 

HAPPY DAY!

    Awesome

    That is some wondeful news and the thought of you going back to your homeland is a true pleasure to behold.  Glad all seems to be going well and so glad that the storm you could see in the rear view mirror instead of the front.  Glad you were kept safe Laughing
