imageAngela - Leaving Behind the Normal  I have one day left to be Normal....I will go to work tomorrow, teach all day, make sure I have enough stuff ready to cover my class for 7 days, then come home and make sure my house is clean enough to come home to after treatment.  Then, I will leave Thursday morning at 6:30 am to go to my first round of chemo (for the second time).   I still look normal, act normal (for those who do not know …More…

imageSharie - No new scans for me for awhile...  My oncologist wants me to have another CT scan - even though I just had one in December - as a follow up to the benign liver cysts they saw previously. The insurance company says "nope" - guidelines for my type of cancer in remission are once every three years, unless I have new symptoms. The doctor doesn't agree, but he can't do anything. I can't do anything either, unless I want to pay for it out of pocket. Um. …More…

Instead, she randomly calls on students to do the problems on the chalk board. -You Are Screwed! - Your efforts to hide behind the student in front of you don't go unnoticed because she's watching you cower. She …More…

imageAshley - Nauseau  I finished my last full week of cisplatin and etopiside and I am beyond happy. But I am still fighting nausea. My stomach has a constant blah feeling.

I am ready to feel like myself again …More…

imageAngela - Working and Treatments  I as wondering how many of you opted to stop working during your treatments?  I am wanting to, and have the capabilities because I have paid for salary protection.  Many think I should keep working, but I feel I want the time I left (if this gets me) to spend writing letters to my children, doing things I want to do, etc. I also am so tired already when I get home from work that I do not think I …More…

imageMichele - The Other Shoe  The world of NED (no evidence of disease) can be exciting and disconcerting at the same time. Let me explain myself. I paid a visit Friday to my oncologist. It was just a local inspection. He always sees me about a month after my appointments in Houston. They maintain my port at the cancer center and he likes to keep abreast of my status and throw a stethoscope on my chest to listen to my heart and lungs that way, …More…
