The cancer in my lungs has activated, causing my feet to slip every so closely to the edge of the cliff. Threatening with all their might to throw me off balance, off of this peak, over the cliff and into the darkness deep below. However, I have not fallen off of my peak into the depths just yet. My mental reserve is steadfast, my body is strong and I have an army with weapons at my disposal. FOLFIRI Avastin for a few months will keep these terrors at bay, and I will as always, keep trudging forward. The path to my goal may be longer than expected, but what an adventure it will be.

Health: My CEA blood test yesterday rose from 2.5 to 4.8. That was pretty indicative that there was some Cancer activity in my body but, not much. So, going into today’s appointment I was not caught off guard. The CT scan showed the minuscule metastases in my lungs (2, 2-3 mm) have activated but not very significantly. This means I start FOLFIRI Avastin Chemotherapy again starting this coming tuesday to keep those little bastards at bay. There was no significant growth, increase or spread of the disease in my body which is great news, it’s just routine maintenance. So back to the battlefield I go.
