We had some good news today. On Monday I had my 4th chemo treatment. This time they drew blood to check the tumor marker for my upper GI tract where we think the cancer is located. A normal tumor marker for the upper GI tract would be 30. When I first saw my oncologist after Thanksgiving, my upper GI tract tumor marker was 6,000. It was 9,000 by the time I started chemo. The latest test showed the tumor marker has reduced to 5,800 which means the chemo therapy is working. I have a CT scan on next Monday that they will compare to a CT scan I had just before beginning chemo. Hopefully that too will show a reduction in the cancer. This is the first good news we have had since before Thanksgiving, and we thank God for it.
