Back to Reality

Last Monday, 22 June 2009, I went in to see my oncologist, Dr. G, and get my 4th treatment of erbitux and camptosar.

The good news is that I gained six pounds while I was in Hawaii. I'm now back up to 141 pounds.

The even better news is that the new treatment seems to be working; my CEA (a measure of a protein produced my cancer cells) went from around 30 before the trip to Hawaii to around 10 on Monday. (Normal is around 5.) This gives me a lot of hope that Frank's nasty little friends will be gone by the end of Summer.

Great news on the health front. I've enjoyed the hawaii pics and wish you and your family and everything but Frank all the best.

What an incredible trip. So glad you had that opportunity, I enjoyed the photos. We'll keep hoping that Frank and his friends are on their way out.

You should get the doctor to prescribe trips to Hawaii as part of your treamtment!
