Latest I have is kinda good news! RAZD has bought a junky Austin Mini Cooper and will be getting it on the road soon. He has plans to try to convert it to a propane engine, just for kicks. What an idea. He also bought a TANDEM bicycle so he & the mrs. can tool around his hometown. Coolest.
Nobody gets my brother down. Nobody. Even if they throw the whole kitchen sink at him, he just shrugs it off. Kitchen window?, well, let's just say we had a good time with The Bigger Hammer.
The reality is that he still has more chemo to do - and he will. And he will emerge from that, too. Nobody gets my brother down.
I started my fifth chemo session this morning and had a meeting with the nurse practitioner. Last session they drew blood to test my cancer marker CEA, Carcinoembyonic antigen. Before my surgery in July my numbers were 90, after surgery and pre-chemo it went down to 8.5. Normal is below 3. Today I was told that my number from last session was 2.2. With my clear PET/CT scan pre-chemo and my normal CEA, I am officially NED, No Evidence of Disease.
Not to say that there are no cancer cells in hiding right now, or that it can't come back in a month, a year, 5 years or 10. But for now there is NO evidence that there is cancer in my system. I will take this any day
