WOOOO! CEA down to 30 after 2 rounds of the OX. Doc says keep going with the imodium as needed, keep an eye on the feet. He also gave permission to discontinue the last few days of the Xeloda if feet got really sore. Next CT scan in Jan 15th. It was a very long day, 10 hours, including driving time, dr time, and infusions. There was some mess up with the Zofran that didn't drip. But who cares, right?
Celebrating DH's birthday with lemon pound cake, presents, cards, and phone calls tonight.
