Good Luck to you all. I am really hoping and praying that the quad. will still work. I know it is hard just seeing our men drugged up all the time.

Hello All,

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers...Angelo had his blood drawn on Tues. He is down to 9.5 so we are off to the hospital for a transfusion...he is very depressed that the quadramet hasn't really effected him...But he is still within the window of 3-4 weeks for max. relief, I am still hopeful that it will do something beside make his white blood count go down to 1.8 for nothing (this will return to normal in a few weeks as well)...

He will start Cymbalta this week, after I check out if the side effects out-weigh the risk...anyone who is taking or has taken this I welcome your imput.

You are all in my prayers,& please keep us in yours,
Karen
