    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    My active treatment, other than anti-hormonal therapy, is all done! My last tumor markers came back good...all were wihtin range except for CA 27-29 but that was oly 10 points too high (not bad considering I started at over 1600 points too high!). Hoping the letrozole will bring down those last few points. Back to work in a week. Here I come life....watch out!
