Hope you had a great time hosting your hunt. It would be great to see photos. I lived in Aiken SC not to far from you for several years when I first moved to SC. Moved there because of the horse community. Aiken Woods is a wonderful place, hope you have had a chance to experiece a ride through the trails there.. Take care of yourself. teri

It's the same with HDIL-2. I remember the discomfort of the treatements but I have forgotten how everything felt. Still, if given the chance, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
By the way Big Dave, I have written you several times to no avail. What's happening? You doing okay? We all have to know!

Hello David,
It is nice to know that there are people who manage to fight their RCC for several years already. I intend to start using Sutent and seeing your and other blogs I wonder how you manage to combine this chemo with your regular work. Besides, I wonder if you know of any assistance program that can help with the drug costs. Even having a private insurance from the company I still need to cover 20 percent of the cost. I would also like to find out which food and drinks you can eat/drink during the cycles. It would be nice to hear from you. Regards, David

Hi David. I hope that you are feeling ok. Damn that lady who stole your slot machine. Doesn't she know who you are???! You are the most famous Warrior ever.

David - You know what they say "the memory is the last to go" and Joe says RATS to that. He too would love to forget some of the s/e adventures of sutent. Good luck at the quail hunt. Wouldn't I love to see you mount that horse? Send us a picture David we want to share in the glory. Have fun
