Possible world driving record for ULAR patient!

Postby Gravelyguy » Tue Mar 12, 2019 5:45 pm

Only because you people would get it and to give hope to those still fighting... it is spring break and I drove most of my family from MN to Florida. One day ended up being 15 hours because of so much rain from Illinois to Alabama. The only near “accident” was the final stretch where the rest of the family had fallen asleep and I just wanted to get there!

We have been enjoying the sun and surf after 50 inches of snow in February alone back home.

My son was worried that I would have to take naps like last year. So far I have outlasted the 12 year old!

Take care all!

6/17 dx mCRC t3n1m1 very low rectal tumor 2 liver Mets 1.3 cm and .9 cm

6/17 begin 4 rounds Folfox w/Vectibix
9/17 short course radiation
10/17 rectal and liver resection LAR with coloanal anastomosis (no rectum left)
11/17-3/18 8 rounds Folfox
6/18 still NED!! Takedown
8/28/18 still NED! CEA .8 new low for me
10/18/18 colonoscopy clear
12/12/18 clear scans, CEA .9 still NED!
