imageLyssa - Estrogen induced nervous breakdown  Sorry, I've been MIA, but the school year started, and I just don't even have any time to myself anymore. On the bright side, I FINALLY GOT A SPECIAL EDUCATION POSISTION, which is what I've always wanted, they just weren't always availible, but by complete luck, I moved from my preK postion to a first grade life skills postion. Anyways, on the boo side, I've gained twenty lbs since operation hystrectomy. I don't really know what to blame. Granted, Justin and I …More…

imageAngela - 4 days post Chemo  Well, had my first round of new chemo on Thursday, and today is Monday.  Survived the weekend ok, I guess.  Had a lot of pain Thursday and Friday, but much more controlled now.  Sticking to just the prescribed amount without any "fillers" since Friday.  I haven't been moving around much either though. Not eating much, but trying to.  Feel yucky when I eat, and haven't enjoyed much of anything.  Really thirsty, but tired of drinking water and lemonade.  Ice tea …More…

imageCindylou - To Scan or Not To Scan  My husbnad Larry,. who was diagnosed and treated for tonsil cancer two years ago went to see the ENT today for three month palpable and visual exam. All looked well and he feels great. The question arosed as to whether or not to do another full body scan. He did one at 3 months post treatment and another at one year. Lenghty discussion ended with the ENT saying the scan at this point was our decision since he has no …More…

imageLarissa - Dance between heaven and earth..journal 9-14-14    I stand back and watch as this world meets what is beyond.  For me this means heaven, for I believe that a relationship with God means an eternity spent in His presence.  Our time here on earth is fleeting yet what I have just witnessed is quite contrary to that which I once believed. Recently I watched a woman in her 80’s challenge cancer head on and win for a time, only to face it again still head on without so …More…

imagePat C - DID SOMEONE SAY 'SABINA'  ~~1.For all my friends, whether close or casual, just because. One of the longest posts I will ever do... and the most real, too. Everyone will go through some hard times at some point. Life isn't easy. Just something to think about...did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the ones who take care of …More…
Type: Tonsil Cancer

imageSusan J - TERRORS   You'd think it would occur mostly in the days leading up to the CT scans, those dreaded images that either confirm or put the lie to our worst imaginings. Yet the night terrors can occur at any time. My man is embarassed by these episodes, and would rather I not go into them at all in this blog space; however, since they are an important aspect of the truth I endeavor to unveil and describe as we continue this pancreas …More…

imageCindy - Weird..scary  I will get into everything next post but this is scary.  My hands.  In relaxed position fingers curl alittle.  I drop things. Fingers ach and wrists ach. They hurt when I extent my fingers.  Last night I tried to pick up ipad and I couldn't do it.   I will call dr Monday but freaking.  Day it hurts but I can lift things but by night I can't.  Any suggestions or ideas.  My friend scated me said ALS.  OMG.   Xo …More…

imageAngela - Terrible First Round of Chemo   This post is REALLY long....be forewarned! Felt too cruddy yesterday to update. Showed up at 8:30 am to get checked in and do blood work. Was expecting to get started on chemo by 9:45-10 am. Well...my blood work came back questionable: My hemoglobin was low at an 8.4. It had dropped since last week, and I hadn't done any treatments! So they re-ran it. This cost a lot of time, then we got stuck waiting for the doctor. During this time, …More…

imageCarmen - Some good news  Thought some of you might like this. I saw my colorectal surgeon (the one that finally diagnosed me correctly) for my regular six month check yesterday and he was so pleased with what he saw/felt that he moved me from every six months to every year! I think you know how happy that made me ;) Four years of one day at a time, one week at a time, one year at a time! …More…

imageDianne - pain in the butt??  I am now 20 months past treatment.  From time to time, I will get a feeling like "pressure in my lower back/buttocks area.  The pressure is right above the tailbone.  Brought this to my Oncologist attention several months ago and he said that the radiation can cause minute fractures in the tail bone which might explain the pressure.  Then it just goes away and without warning it comes back again.  I have been feeling the pressure for about the last …More…
