Feeling Great
Not much to report. I'm feeling great because my sweet nurse allowed me to skip my Chemo session on this past Monday so I can enjoy Thanksgiving. Since I don't have much to report I figured I bring somestaggering facts to your attention. There will be 103,170 new cases of colon cancer in the USA in 2012. Sadly it is estimated that 51,690 people will die from colon cancer in the USA in 2012. we need to change this. Hopefully next year I'll be able to get my charity the Samuel Gilley Colon Cancer Foundation off the ground and giong so that we can fight to bring more Awareness to Colon Cancer...

DR Appt. Update
So I had a doctors appointment today and it appears that my liver function is normal and my cancer (tumor) marker is getting lower. It is normally lower then 3.9 and mine is at 214. I know thats still really high, but it's down from 217 last month and the 499 that it was in july. Treatments seem to be working. We'll know a lot more in January when I have my next PET Scan. Take care all and thanks for the encouragement and support.

Update
I've been sleeping most of yesterday and all of today after my Chemotherapy session yesterday. The new "poison" Made me a little sick, but the rest has really helped and then a lot of these side effects from the old "poison" should go away soon. I was actually able to drink something simi cold. I do have more tumors and the tumors in my Liver have increased a bit, yet there is a little less metabolic activity. I hope that will improve with the new treatment. Take care all, and remember Stay Thirsty ( for life ) My Friends and WORD UP !!!!! Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts and...

Small update on my cancer battle.
Small update on my cancer battle. Wow Wednesday will be 7 months since I was diagnosed. I'm having to many side effects, ie these crazy headaches and earlier I was spraying down the back patio and when I walked back into the house I got dizzy and fell! Luckily I'm okay. But my oncologist is switching my chemo medications starting next Monday. So now I'm going to have to get used to a whole new set  of side effects. I just want to thank you all for the bottom of my heart for your caring thoughts and prayers. Please keep checking my website as I'll get back on. It's just hard to do with...

Results from my PET scan
So I got my results from the doctor. I have two cancer masses in my stomach lining that having shrunk. The cancer masses in my Liver are bigger, however my doctor said some of that is dying masses. The bad news is that I have more cancerous lymph nodes, 1 in my stomach lining and 3-4 more in my right groin.  I will no longer be taking the Xeloda pills and the oxaliplatin. I will still be taking the Avastin IV Chemotherapy and I'll get Camptosor ( also known as  ZPT-11) Injections. So My Oncologist informed me that I won't have to shave my head anymore, cause my new injections will do that...
