Good to read your post David and at least now after your MRI results, things will begin to get better for you with the right combination of meds. I know you are not going to let this get you down, as you are such a strong person through all of this. It's just one more bump along the highway, but you'll ride over it and continue on. By the way, you were so right about ensuring you drink lots of fluids when on cancer meds. My hubby's fluid levels were way down on Monday when he went for his chemo and they had to give him extra IV's of the good stuff. He's feeling so much better now though and maybe that's why he was so miserable last weekend.
Try to get lots of R & R this deserve it.

Hi david, sorry to hear you had to revisit those nasty machines again(MRI)kind a hard on the ears........hope this finds you back and at it again and you're feeling much is on his second week of teaching(P.E>) and coaching football..but it really makes for a long day for him...his energy level just isn't there yet and he gets frustrated.....i make sure i go to practice with him right beside him giving him water ever 2 minutes!! it is soooooo dang hot and humid....God Bless David....take care

So glad to hear your spirit is intact. Like all the others I was very concerned for you. I know you'll find the Warrior strength to get past this one. I'll be praying for you buddy!
