Goodness I suck at keeping this thing up!

There isn't a whole lot going on right now. Travis is headed to a treatment tomorrow and then he gets a week off before he goes back. We love weeks off around here!! The pain in his rib seems to come and go, sometimes he feels pretty good (unless he lifts too much or raises his arms too high), and others he is in quite a lot of pain. I really hope that somehow this rib heals on its own.

The Dr. has mentioned him trying another drug on top of his weekly. This one is meant to strengthen the bones which sounds lovely, but the side effects do not. One of them, which is rare...but still, is that you lose the muscles in your mouth. Boo. We like to talk, and he likes to we aren't really sure how we feel about it!

It seems like we are just getting used to the treatments that he has been going through the last year and the thought of starting yet another drug isn't all that enticing. We will talk to the Dr. more about this before we make any decisions. I wish we could stop making hard decisions!!

Other than that life is good and we are doing just fine. We always appreciate the many dinners, calls, and e-mails we get and hope you all know how taken care of and loved we feel! I mean seriously people, we are so thankful!

I'll updated if something noteworthy happens.

I can't begin to imagine how hard each decision is to make. I think you guys know what is best. Good Luck! I think about you often.

I think it is good when I don't see to many updates on this blog. No news is good news sometimes right?
