Thank you Lord!
My lowest recorded CEA level - Ever! 1.5! Previous lowest was right after surgery with 1.7.
So good today for labs, saw 2 of my favorite 3 nurses. My all time favorite drew my blood. She's a fellow cancer survivor (breast cancer).
I told her about my CEA level conundrum and she told me She'd be crossing her fingers for me to have my lowest level ever and keeping me in her prayers.
Well, we done got it! I hope to see it stay in this normal range, for like EVER
I was a bit concerned that it might go up as 10 days ago
I took a hard fall on my road bike, resulting in some very bad road rash. So I definitely had inflammation going on with the wounds healing. To top it off
I developed an allergic reaction to either the ointment prescribed by express care doctor or neosporin as I quickly ran out of the prescribed ointment
because the wounds were so large. Glad to see it didn't make a difference, or at least one that made a big impact.
