    Since my cancer came back a couple months ago, I've not had much good news to share with you all, so here goes.

    I had chemo yesterday and they took some blood, as they normally do. They told me they were going to do a CEA test this time. Today, the nurse called to tell us that the tumor marker antigen (CEA) which was 150 in early March is down to 15. Seems like the chemo is doing it's part and your prayers are working. Thanks to you all. Cautious optimism for now.

    Making tentative plans for the Grand.
