Thanks for your reply. One day at a time is the mantra. We started counseling last week just to give us guidance. This disease is a tricky thing. As Bob has gotten better, and less on the pain meds, he is more aware of what he has been missing. Depression has reared it's ugly head, which I wasn't prepared for. (Wait you are feeling better, why are you depressed?) Apparently this is a common thing to happen, and it was helpful to hear why. So we are trying to communicate better, and increasing the activities we enjoy and were not able to do so much such as dining with friends, going to movies and SNUGGLING without pain.
We are not sure how long this will last, but his acupuncturist is also saying he is stronger, and we continue with the Zytiga, Pred, and Eligard.
My heart and best wishes to our fellow warriors and warriorettes.
