David, I will keep this story close to my heart during the next 28 days. I am starting my 2nd cycle of Sutent tomorrow, (the first round being all around awful) and have been trying to mentally prepare myself, but the closer the day comes, the more I feel my invincibility oozing away, replaced by dread. In our day, we truly have so many resources at our disposal, so unlike our grandpas. I will continue to keep Sutent on my gratitude list, along with nausea medicine, IV hydration, Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Balm, Imodium, my double pillow top bed...all the things Grampa never dreamed of.


David, just curious, we have not read any thing about your trip to SD in the last few days. Are you still going? We certainly hope so! Will you be able to let us know how your doing on the road? Take care and will keep you in our prayers. Ellen and Richard
