Happy Wednesday! I hope all of you had a great last two weeks (Sorry about the blog not posting last week!).
So, some stuff has gone on. When I went to the oncologist in NYC, he and his fellow were very concerned about the weekly side effects. The fellow asked me a lot of questions about them to get specifics, blah blah blah, that kind of stuff He came back in with the doctor and he said that he wanted to try a medication vacation to see how I do without the pills. I asked that he talk to the doctor down at UVA first to get his approval and make sure it is okay and he was fine with that.
Last week I got a call from his office saying that it was approved and I can take a vacation from the pills. So, I have not taken the pills since June 1st! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Haven’t had to vomit on Thursday or Friday for almost three weeks now! I went to the local oncologist today to get my blood drawn to see how I am doing and so far, my numbers are doing okay. I see the NYC oncologist again in July, so we’ll see what he thinks then.
So, I will talk to all of you next Wednesday! I hope all of you have a great week!

Hoping that this is a good sign for you and that you can enjoy a long time without the side effects. I’ve had to do the same thing as my previous drug (I get it my IV) had turned toxic and protein was leaking into my urine. I took five weeks off while we chose a new drug since going long term without on is not an option for now/
Now I get to learn new side effects but it didn’t stop me from getting out to a couple of concerts and enjoying life.
Good luck and have a great “vacation”.
