Thank you all for your kind thoughts and words from my last post.
We always are amazed at the support we have.
We feel very loved.
The past few weeks have been hard.
Trying to figure out the best approach for treatment is tough.
We have been back and forth trying to make a decision.
We decided to pursue a drug called CABO.
How mean to call this drug CABO.
We'd much rather be basking in the sun IN CABO
then taking this drug called CABO.
Mean I say.
We've never even been to Cabo.
Ok. Enough about our lack of fun filled Mexican Vacations.
CABO isn't approved for RCC.
But for those who have used it,
it has given them good results.
And more here.
That makes us hopeful.
Ive been corresponding with Chris' wife Dena
for a few months now,
and they've also talked to their Dr.
about our case, and pursuing this seemed the right option.
We are so lucky to have a Dr. who listened and ran with it,
despite maybe being a little nervous to prescribe something we don't know
Getting it approved by the insurance took some time.
And work by the Dr.'s office, I'm sure.
(Big Thank you to them).
So as of today,
after one HEFTY co-pay,
the CABO is on it's way.
We are ready to start something,
it's been too long without anything.
And I'm terrified.
This drug isn't gonna be a walk in the park.
We expect a lot of the same side effects that he has with Sutent.
And that was rough.
But Trav wants to keep fighting,
and is ready to face all that comes along with it.
I married a good man.
I daresay he's better then most.
(I'm biased so I'll just say better then all...)
Despite how hard the past few weeks have been emotionally,
Trav's felt semi-decent.
He's been able to have a few really good days mixed in with the bad.
We cherish those good days!
Today, for some reason,
he's been extremely miserable with a stomach and headache.
Hoping he will recover quickly!
Please pray for him to do well on this drug.
Pray his body can handle the toxicity.
Pray the Dr.'s can know the correct dose for him.
Pray the girls can still feel we live in a happy home.
Pray I can manage to give them all what they need!
Sure love and appreciate our huge care giving family.
