I have written a few times and have always received much love and support from all of you. For that I say "Thank You". Yesterday my husband (stage IV colon w/ mets to liver and lung since Sept 03) began the new Erbitux and didn't get to take it. After about 30 minutes he broke out in a severe rash with welps and itching and his blood pressure bottomed out to 60 over 33. They rushed him to the emergency room and after just a short time of saline he came around and all is well. The benedryl put him down for the evening but he is fine now. Correction, he didn't stay down all evening, we have revival going at our church and he wouldn't stay home from that for anything so we did attend revival and thanked God that all was successfully unsuccessful (hope that made sense!).
More later when we find what road we are going to travel now.
