Merry, thanks for your support and nice words. His quality of life is ok, i guess it could be worse. He does not have much side effects, the only thing that he complains is little bit of numbness in his feet due to neuropathy. I guess, he had a very energetic life style and its not the same now but still very, very thankful. Yes, it was spreaded in the bone initially but with zometa it was controlled.
