imageNicole - Feel like I am falling apart!  I hate to be negative...I feel bi polar (not to offend anyone saying that...I am not making fun I am being very serious). I am trying SO HARD to be strong and positive and I know it is so important to stress yourself as least as possible to allow yourself to heal. So half the time I am all up and positive and trying to think about the future and how I want to live my life to the fullest …More…

imageEllen - Ct news not good  Results are in for my first post treatment scan. There is still a mass at the top of my right lung although considerably smaller than previous. They can't tell from the scan if it's scarring or cancer! The oncologist is taking my case to the local lung meeting next week so specialised lung radiographer's can inspect the scan. It's likely he will send me for a PET next. The problem is that post radiotherapy inflammation will light up as well …More…

So, over the past few months I have practically stopped drinking it altogether. I thought I was developing some new taste for abstinence... nope. I have cancer.  Beer cancer, apparently. So I'm renaming my cancer after the worst cancerous, malignant, mutated form of alcohol …More…
