Thanks Jacque! We still don't know what that lung spot was, but it did resolve and stayed away. We now know that the CEA rise was due to the liver. Now that my scans picked up the tumor, my oncs were able to go back to the prior scan and identify the beginning inklings of it. But in the words of my onc, there is no way that ANYONE would have picked up the prior scan and said oh that's a tumor. In any case, I'm continuing to celebrate each day that I am here as my way of saying "screw you" to cancer. :D
