our latest update

Well here we are in Houston. I wish I could say that the news was what we wanted to hear. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either
After Donnie's last petscan (1 month ago) his CEA "tumor marker" had gone from 3.5 to 7.2. We found out today that when he came 2 weeks ago for chemo that his CEA at that time was 9.1.
Today it is 8.9. So it has gone down some since 2 weeks ago but up overall in the grand scheme of things. The dr. decided that he feels this chemo is still working so wants to try 2 more rounds and then scan again.
I don't know what else to write today. My heart is heavy. I want some GOOD NEWS for a change
Keep praying
love to all
