I used to be FutureMrsC here- but lost my info... so anyway, it's still me!

I'm glad that treatment seems to be helping your Tommy. Keep on fighting! My Tommy & I send our thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes to you both!

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

I am so glad you updated. I don't post here often, but I have been following your battle and keeping you in my prayers. This is truly wonderful news.

Sorry, I don't post here often as I should, but wanted to let you know you and DH are in our continued postive thoughts and prayers. This new treatment sounds like a true blessing and let's hope and pray it continues to hold things at bay as your DH continues his fight against this awful beast. Godspeed

Good thoughts are always with you.
