Re: Genetic Testing/Lynch Syndrome: Update

So, after a long wait, I finally got my sons' results today. It turns out that my 22 year old has Lynch. Certainly not what I wanted to hear.
If anyone has a doctor in NY who specializes in Lynch, I'd love to hear.
Thanks,
Elissa

Genetic Testing/Lynch Syndrome

Hi all, Not sure how many people here remember me. Next week will be four years since my husband passed after an eight month battle with stage 4 colon cancer. Even though I have not posted in a very long time, I continue to check in regularly. I want to stay up on any new treatments and I like to ch...

I am leaving tomorrow for a short new years vacation with the man that I have been seeing for the past six months. I was blessed to have a...

Re: Beyond the Magic Bullet

FYI....John and I had an appointment to see Dr. Chang when he ended up in the hospital and subsequently passed away. I always wonder if anything would have turned out differently had we met with him earlier. Dr. Chang has a very good reputation. He saved the life of the wife of one of my friends. I ...

Re: Opinions/vent.. on getting married after spouse passes

Shana, Although I still come on the site frequently, I have not posted for a long time. I was very saddened by your mother's death. She was a very special person and I enjoyed my contact with her. When I got my blue ribbon tattoo, I actually made a "date" to come out and go with your mom w...

Re: My kevin is dying , hiccups help if you know

Lisa,
Just saw your post and had to log on. When my husband was dying, he also had the hiccups. I am pretty sure that the drug they gave him to control it was Reglan. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Unfortunately I have been there myself.

A year.....

Today is a year that I lost my best friend. Today is a year that life as I knew it ceased to be. It has been a long and trying road. I have worked very hard to take care of my boys and myself, and to move forward in this life without John. By February/March, I was really feeling like it was all poss...

Re: Husband NED after 82 rounds chemo

Kathleen,
So happy to hear your great news! I hope that Dick continues to feel and do well for a long, long time.
I'm sure this will make it a little easier to send your daughter off to college next year. Has she decided where she is going?
Just keep living and enjoying life.

Re: HELP!!

My dear Bev, I had been very worried about you lately as you were noticably absent. Then I saw your post last week, and was very concerned. I am so, so sorry for all you are going through. Those "thoughts", well you need to just let them go, or they will become a poison eating away at you....
