Re: Experience with palliative care?

I have had a Pallative care oncoligist look after my needs for a couple of years now. She spoils me. It's like having your own private doctor at your fingertips. They are great for referrals, pain control, insightful, willing to take all the time needed to address your concerns. I seldom have to see...

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

Nik, I am sad to hear that your leaving this forum. Maybe you just need a break for awhile like I did. Never say never. This forum has become like a second family to me, but I needed to step back and take a break from all the hardships and sadness people were experiencing. It frustrated me that ther...

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

Peanut, your bat signal reached me ! I have been busy finding ways for us to get rich. I have too much time on my hands. I am working on designing a coat for dogs with pockets that you can insert hand warmers into. The type that you throw in the microwave for a few minutes that then stay warm for ho...

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

I have been MIA for awhile now. I had to give my brain a rest. It is very challenging mentally to be on this roller coaster ride. I had been focusing on ' end of life ' decisions and the like for months now since I wasn't expected to make it through the summer. Now that the latest scan shows a reduc...

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

Sorry about the interruption Peanut, I got side tracked with this medical problem. Doc thinks it's a tumour acting up. We will just monitor things for now. Your mouse flavoured cat food is a good idea, but we would be competing with some heavy hitters in the cat food industry. We need something nove...

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

Hi folks ! Sorry for being MIA. I have been on a roll lately and put cancer right out of my mind. Hence my absence. I have to do that every now and then. It helps me to stay positive about life. My stamina has improved with all these long walks and I am out enjoying life. I'd like to tell you about ...

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

Peanut, ......Peanut are you on line ?? I miss you Peanut. Let's team up again !! Let's invent something together. Even just one good product could make us rich. If I'm not going to die anytime soon, I don't want to sit on my thumbs waisting time away. I want to do something productive. All of my ch...

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

It has been 6 years this week that I was diagnosed stage 4 with 6 months to live. With that in mind, my scan results was mostly good news. My lung mets have increased significantly in size but have not spread much. If fact, the cancer has hardly spread at all since my last scan !! It has only increa...

Re: Good news thread

So happy to see that your almost over the hump. Hope your hair comes back normal. With my hair, each strand seems to have its unique hair style. I have to keep it super short or I start looking like a mad scientist !! I will be 6 years stage 4 on the 18th.

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

I am frustrated at the moment. I have been feeling really good lately. My stamina has increased with these long walks. I have no ackes or pains, life is good. The problem is I can't plan ahead. I came across a business opportunity that I would love to get involved in. I've had my eye on this busines...

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

Well, I had a wonderful trip up north. We did not take the scenic route after all. My son had to drop off a care package to my granddaughter at a northern university that was just a little out of our way. I had a chance to visit with her for a bit. This trip was a little rushed, as I had to be back ...

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

As some of you have noticed, I haven't been on here much these days. I found that I had to take a step back from all the gloom and doom on this forum recently. I took the deaths of Pollo 65 and Voxx hard. It reminded me of my own mortality. I don't normally think that way. I usually feel invincible....

Re: Night before chemo. Thinking of giving up...

Hello my friend. Like others on here have said, you have nothing to lose by trying it. Everyone reacts differently to certain drugs. You can quit at anytime. As for myself, I'm a year and a half post chemo. I still have no regrets about quitting. My QOL is really good and I've lived almost a normal ...

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

I let my curiosity get the best of me. I have agreed to have another CT scan to see how much more the cancer has spread. It's been nine months since the last one. I had disallowed any more scans but the doctors are perplexed at my continued good health. They want to study my case more closely and as...

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

I took my BFF to the fair. We had a blast. He did not want to go on the rides alone. It was rather hilarious to see me all crouched up in a kiddie ride along side my BFF ! We filled up on junk food and candy floss. It was the most fun I've had at a fair in a long time. I saw the doctor recently. She...
