It has been 2 and a half years since my first treatment and I feal great. This week I saw my Onc. and last month a new Internal Medicine Doc for a Physical. Both analyzed my blood and all is normal.
CEA is 1.0 on the Seimens scale = No Evidence of Disease! Last month turned 58. Onc will see me again in 6 Months, and my Surgeon will wait 3 Years before another Colonoscopy.
Conclusion: this chapter in my life is over. In gratitude I must give more time to helping others; visiting the sick and shut-ins. Encouraging and comforting. Sharing what we have all year long and not just during the holidays.
This time last year I was doing well, but my wife ended up in the hospital with Blood Clots and could have died. She is fine now, but we take nothing for granted. Live every day. Give thanks to God.
I will continue to visit the Colon Club to provide encouragement. I pray for the healing and comfort of all here.
May you enjoy the time you have to spend with your family and friends, and Merry Christmas. -Bill
