I am praying for you. I hope that you start to feel better soon. You are a Warrior and can get through this. The last few posts have sounded..well...bad. I am worried for you. I know that you will get through this though. You are the King of kindey cancer arse kicking!

I know I have told you a million times how much I appreciate you sharing your experience with RCC with all of us, but again, Dave, thank you. My mother, also dealing with this heat in NC, is having more side effects with this round of Sutent also! Hand and foot problems, fatigue, the whole nine yards. She is on her 2 week break and has still seen no measurable relief of the SE's. It most certainly is a battle! Her CT yesterday did show that none of the 3 remaining tumors are enhancing with the dye anymore. It is possible all of the cancer is dead, but her physician is not willing to let her go off of Sutent just yet. So we will play another round in this game and see what hand we are dealt. Dave, you are always in my prayers.
