Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

Hi guys, I am sorry for taking so long in replying. I have a lot of trouble concentrating these days. I have forgotten how to use this tablet. Mrs. Frenchie's is helping out this post. Simple things have become very difficult to deal with. It will soon become time to move into my new digs, it is a P...

7 YEARS STAGE 4 TODAY

It's been 7 years today that I heard the words: "You have terminal colon cancer and have 6 to 9 months to live " It has been one hell of a journey. I now have, or have had cancer in most of my organs. Many operations later, I am still om the right side of the grass. The 3 most prevalent pl...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

ANOTHER MILESTONE : I recently celebrated my 66th birthday. I'm still hanging in there. There has been a lot of action around our house recently. I can no longer go exploring in my RV. An arsonist struck our property and burned the RV to the ground. He caused 50 thousand dollars in damages to our pl...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

Hello everyone, Mrs. Frenchie here. I know that Frenchie had not been keeping you updated or posting as often as he should so I thought I would try my hand at this for him. He has an appointment with his doctor at the end of the month which is a good thing as his pain is increasing. The doctor will ...

Re: Another rant, sorry

I hope you are feeling better my dear. I have been thinking about you lately. You can't seem to catch a break. I feel your frustrations honey. We are on a similar journey. The way you have persevered is amazing. I follow you on here whenever I can. I find you insightful. All I can say is " Hang...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

Now that the cancer has spread to my bowels, one of the options is a colonoscopy. I would have to wear a colonoscopy bag again. I had one for over 2 years when I was first diagnosed. They are not that bad to live with. I got use to mine fairly quickly. They are not fool proof. One of my most embarra...

Re: Calling ALL Colorectal CANUCKS !

I had to look at the tiger a few times to take in everything. It would take a lot of courage to walk around like that.

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

BS...... I wish you were my next door neighbour. We'd get along so well. What you wrote just now is so bang on with my situation at the moment. This is what I am thinking about and feeling right now and you expressed it so well. I consciously made the decision to stop treatment over two and a half y...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

I have been away from this site far to long. You guys are like family to me and I feel that I have neglected you. These multiple brushes with death has proven very hard for my brain to process. I needed to get away with anything that had to do with death and dying for awhile. I took a break from can...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

As some of you have noticed, I have not been very active on this site. I have been avoiding this site because I haven't gotten a grip on my emotions since I received the latest scan results, giving me a small reprieve from the inevitable. Having been told that I would not see the end of summer, I ha...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

BS, I had one of those for awhile. I gave it away. It was not comfortable for my legs. I was worried about the blood clots in my legs being too much in contact with the bottom of the chair. I got myself a top of the line Lazy Boy recliner and the contact points are much better for me now. Peanut, I'...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

I'm sorry for being MIA again. This time, I misplaced my tablet when I went to the hospital. Mrs Frenchie found it under a pile of papers today. The surgery was not a success. This usually is a fairly simple procedure but the new stent is causing me problems. The old stent had dropped down a little,...

Re: Deportation Done

Ned, I kept mine in past chemo, well over a year. I was gambling that they might come up with an alternate solution to chemo and need the port for treatment.

Re: O/T In The Spirit Of The Season

Our family is at the other extreme. We don't give each other anything at all. We decided years ago that we had everything we needed. We did not need more clutter in the house, no matter how well intended. We pick a different needy family every year and give them a Christmas to remember. Everybody wi...

Re: Happy Cancerversary to ME!

Welcome to the 5% Club ! My special day prompted me to have a T shirt created that I now use as my avatar ! The big 5 is the hard one to reach. It seems to get easier after that. I'm up to 6 and a bit at the moment. Still going strong.
