Overdue Hello

Just wanted to stop in and say hello to everyone, and to let you know I'm still here, still thinking of and praying for everyone. I think of you all very often. Those of you who know me also know I am an author. I have a new book being published soon, and decided to dedicate it to the people in my l...

Re: Goodbye

As the one with cancer, I often felt that being the caregiver / loved one forced to watch would be *so* much harder. I'm so very sorry to read both posts, but so moved by the love and devotion that you gave to your partners.
Keeping you both in my prayers.

Re: Scanxiety, here we go again.

Hopefully you'll find some trials with promise, Orlar. I've always been amazed at all the hope and encouragement this site can provide when doctors are all out. Will keep you in thoughts and prayers.

Re: Tattoo during scope?

I see everyone has already provided you with great info. All I wanted to add was that my surgeon also did a sigmoidoscopy after my initial colonoscopy both to mark and recheck location. She said it was standard for surgeons to do this to ensure that the location noted during the colonoscopy was comp...

Re: Scanxiety: Anyone else having testing now?

Thinking of you today! I just got home from doctor's, and I'm all clear. Now officially 2 years NED. Although my blood-pressure in the doctor's office before he came in was 185 / 110. Yeeks. Thanks Robino and everyone for your thoughts and prayers. They are always appreciated. I know I haven't been...

Re: Scanxiety: Anyone else having testing now?

Cancer won't break me and keep me from enjoying life. Dammit! :twisted: Sorry to hear you have to deal with more. Hopefully things will settle down for you soon.

I try to deny it, but I know it's true. After all, here I be. <:- ) I'll keep praying for you, you keep praying for me. Smiles, hugs and ...

Re: Took my last dose of Xeloda last night

Just finished chemo last night. Took those pills and thought to myself, ok, this is done. Now starts the watching and waiting. On the outside, I am happy for this milestone. On the inside, I wonder if I am deluding myself. I really just want to enjoy this... does one ever feel free after cancer? I ...

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast, hull and spar as she was when she left my side. And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me -- not in her. And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is...

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

I am so very sorry to hear this news. I haven't been on the forum for a while, and so this is shocking. My love and prayers go to beansmama's family and friends, as well as to all of us here in Colon Club who feel this loss so deeply. It cuts. It doesn't make sense. And it's so unfair. Although I d...

She is a beautiful spirit, and deserved so much better in life.
