imageDiane - The downward slide  Hubby and I sat in the oncologist's office, the end of Jan 2015.  He had numerous tests and scans that resulted in this visit.  The doctor came in finally and gave us the good/bad news.  Bad news: it is cancer, Good news it hasn't spread.  We sat there immobile, with pleasant, placid expressions.  If I knew then what I know now,  I'd have screamed, or  I think I would have.  We've had 3 more of those visits, hoping for good news …More…

imageSusan J - LIFE AFFIRMING    We've been spending the last six weeks or so preparing for the resumption of chemo next month. It's been a terrific break - much longer than we had ever dreamed possible - but alas all good things must come to an end. The last scan in March showed some tumor growth and my man was given the choice at that time between immediate chemo with a possible break during the summer, or a continuation of the break for another couple …More…

imageNicole (Lady Of The Larynx) - Speechless Anniversary 2015   I "celebrated" the 1st year anniversary of my May 15th laryngectomy, with pizza and a visit to my Chemo doctor.  Dr. K was eager to share an insensitive jerk story with me, in which he was the jerk and his wife and daughter decidedly weren't.  His story began in Finland, "home of the $103,000 speeding ticket", where fines are based on income, and ended in a Marin Co, CA restaurant.  He confessed that he'd been rude to the waitress and …More…

imageKaren - Fly Fishing is Beautiful!                      My Dad used to have a green t-shirt that said this in his younger years! I always thought it was a funny phrase...fly fishing, beautiful? Haha But it really is. The rhythm of the rod casting the line, the gushing or trickling of the stream, the dragonflies and mayflies that flutter about, the absence of all things superficial, and the ethereal essence of nature when you are standing in the water...oh yah, and the fish too! (sore subject...we didn't catch anything last week... :(  ) My …More…

imageSarah - YOU AND ME  Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.Thomas Carlyle   How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. George Washington Carver   All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander …More…

imageDebbie - Long Time Gone  here's something I've learned over the past couple of years: The farther away I've gotten from my two cancer dx's, the less I want to think about them. I suppose I'm feeling a bit of guilt for leaving this, my other home and all of my friends and supporters without so much as a buh-bye, but as much as the "c" was always a breath away during the months and years of testing, scans, etc, I really do forget it completely …More…
