Spleen embolisation

My spleen embolisation was successful.   Platelets were up to 630 so I was able to get full dose of irrotecan.  Had to skip one treatment while I was recovering. CEA doubled   I was hoping for a chemo break.  I've been doing this so long but guess that is not going to happen now.

You're shooting off the scale now! Wow!  630!  The meter is supposed to stop at 450:)
