Apparently it's a urinary tract infection, he's coming home with antibiotics.

The outcome is that the tumour has shrunk so far, basically, he's not done with the FOLFIRI/erbitux.

I talk about it throughout the thread. His CEA has fallen from in the thousands to nearly normal and not necissarily out of the normal "range".

The end of this cylce of FOLFIRI/erbitux is in about three weeks, I think, and then we should do a scan, I should have more information later.
