Went to see Dr. Kennedy today. She was delighted to be the first to give the results of the CT-Scan as well as CEA blood test numbers. The CT-Scan results are outlined below. As you can see, a huge drop in the size of the tumours.

Janet and I were both a bit overwhelmed by the information and under-reacted, to say the least. Went out for lunch to celebrate. And cried. And hugged. And cried some more.

I have come to the conclusion that it is the crying that expels the cancer cells.

The CEA blood count is also down rather dramatically, from 1266. on November 18, to 392.9 on December 16. All pointing to a move in the right direction.

That is all I can write for now.

  8. Well, it's time to leave the sidelines and get in the game… We've been following your messages since the beginning and cheering for your strength throughout this ordeal. You're blessed to have so many friends who care so much and express so well the emotions that we all share on behalf of you, Janet & Devin. Since others communicated their thoughts so well, we've avoided mucking up the message with our 2 cents. That's over dammit… "Euphoria" was just too good a post to read without responding to it. Even we had to join the celebration line. If crying is what it takes, we're ready to wail.
