imageAmy - RESULT OF CT CHEST/ABD/PELVIS  Hello Everyone.  I had a CT scan of my chest, abdomen, and pelvis and was holding my breath until I heard the results. I am thankful that both my chest and pelvis have had an excellent response to the chemotherapy and there are just a few pesky swollen nodes in my abdomen to worry about now. Overall impression was "Excellent response to chemotherapy with complete resolution of lymphadenopathy." So, I consider this a win in the first round. I am tentatively …More…

imageKim - On A Mission  I have been on a mission this week to contact the NBA and NHL to promote Colorectal cancer awareness month in March like the NFL does with breast cancer awareness month. I have emailed Mark Cuban of the Dallas Mavericks, no response as of yet and have emailed the NBA and NHL as well.. I have taken the "squeaky wheel" comment posted to my I hate cancer rant a few months ago to heart and am going to bombard anyone and everyone. I …More…

imageGinger - I think I know my body.  I've been itching and have some bleeding after sex. Made appointments with the GYNO, CT scans, Onc.  I received a letter today to call me GYNO for my results (after the office closed) I remember getting the cards telling me to make my appointment next year. It's going to be a long night pretending I'm not worried.    …More…

imageLyssa - for the love of coffee  So, I went to an endocrinologist on Monday. She was very nice. She had a theory as to why I ended up having uterine cancer, which seems plausible. She thinks I had/have insulin resistance, which led to undiagnosed PCOS [poly-cystic ovary syndrome]. I went on birth control pretty young because I had horribly heavy and painful periods, so PCOS was probably never detected since the BC killed all the symptoms. This, in turn, can lead to uterine cancer. Insulin resistance makes perfect …More…

imageRick - What a great staff  Mom passed away yesterday with all my brothers and sisters around her. We all had our hands on her when she died. She was in hospice for three days. There was always some of us with her for 24 hours a day. During the day we were all there (5 kids and spouses). The hospice staff was amazing. From the time we arrived until the time she passed they told us what was going to happen and things to look …More…

imageSharie - Check up  Had my rad check up yesterday. (I'm at 13 months post treatment.) Ask him to do an anoscope. He did and said it doesn't even look like I ever had cancer. Sweet! Chemo doc follow up on Friday. Will ask about future scans. In the meantime, I'll get back to grading. I will be so glad when this semester is OVER especially since I'm trying to catch up on all the work I missed from a year ago. Gotta clear those incompletes …More…

imageKellye - Sickening  http://www.13wmaz.com/story/news/2014/11/18/hackers-targeting-families-of-children-with-cancer/19219013/  I just read this on our local news postings.  There are some sick people out there, and I don't mean physically sick.  Here is the link.  I hope they find who is responsible, and they pay for the pain they have caused.  …More…

imageJeff - Today's Blog Blues...  You know....sometimes when life hands you lemons, you just don't feel like making lemonade.  Met a man at church today.  I had volunteered to assist with the Sunday services by operating the sound system they have.  The priests wear body mics, the choir has mics hanging above them and the podium for the lay readers is mic'ed.  They also record the 11:00AM service.  So I meet the man who heads up the sound system team at the early service this morning …More…

imageKathleen - last 5 days  I haven't been sleeping well and I had a 2 week break b/c I was too sick to do 1 30 minute treatment and another one got eliminated since my counts were low. I think it's still nerves, anxiety and all of the above. They probably won't ease until I hear the phrases "cancer free" and "treatments are over". I've been taking Ativan to fall asleep but I'll get maybe 3-4 hours of broken sleep. My doctor gave me Tradozone …More…
