I went in for my infusion today. Left the house at 5:30am and made it home at 5:30pm. Yes it was a long day. And I received some good news today.

My CEA is 9 today... Down from 40 a short while ago. I love my CEA line chart as it helps me appreciate the progress. And I'm hoping that this is an indicator that the Folfiri/Erbitux is kicking some cancer cell a55! My Erbitux acne is clearing up as well. I probably will have a resurgence of the rash but I'll concede this battle in hopes of winning the war.

See my blog for the longer update, including an update on my Aunt Sonia's funeral.


And THANK YOU all for sharing your wisdom, emotional support, and experiences in this forum.

God Bless,

Sounds like the chemo is doing its job. Hope next week CEA goes even lower. Makes a chemo infusion day even better!

That is really great news to hear.  Having such a big decline in your CEA is something else. I also had a drop on Tuesday from 33 to 19 .  I pray it keeps dropping. I'm in my second week of my second round of Stirvaga. Let's keep those good m

Numbers coming.  Jeff
