Time for the annual CT results.  Last week Mike had his scan and this afternoon we meet with the oncologist to go over the results.  We aren't anticipating anything out of the ordinary, but just in case, the kids will be at a friend's house after school so I can also go to the appointment.  Mike's CEA level is at 2.5 - anything below 5 is considered normal. However, I don't put a lot of faith in those numbers considering his CEA was at 0 when he was originally diagnosed with cancer.

It's hard to believe how different things were two years ago.  Mike wasn't feeling great, mostly run down and tired. What a shock to find out he had cancer.  Since then life has evened out for the most part in regard to Mike's health.  Even to the point of taking things for granted again.  I guess on one hand that's good, it means we aren't living in fear.  On the other hand if anything positive came out of the experience it was the realization of how fortunate and blessed we really are, which we should never take for granted.
