    Thanks Christine!
    I spent the last 2 weeks a bit worried as my CEA had been fluctuating around 2.5 since my surgery and it went up 2 weeks ago to 3.2. My liver enzymes have also been high and I get steroids in my liver pump and take Ursodial to lower them. So my liver enzymes were all lower today (except for bilirubin) and my CEA was still 3.2 (so even if it didn't go down, at least it didn't go up).

    I have my next appointment (bloodwork) the end of December so hopefully my liver enzymes will be down enough that I can stop the steroids (I hate them!!).

    Thanks for thinking of me. I appreciate it very much!!!

    PS Your son is quite handsome!! I wish I had a 20 YO niece in the area....
