I have a facebook page and this man contacted me and added me and I did add him, But he went under a different name and now he has another name that he goes by. The third time he messaged me, he said " Hi <em>26</em> . Yes that is how he messaged me and I don't know him. I did not respond and the next time he just said hi. Those two were under the name Danny Kings, Now it is under Gerry Anderson. The first one said that he moved to Tampa Fl but the second one says he lives in California Ci... Sat, 10 Feb 2018 04:04:27 EST President Trump was here in Melbourne. Today was a long day. Went to see President Trump since he and his wife was stopping in Melbourne. It was great and l did see him, got some pictures of him and his wife. I did have to leave soon after since I and my son was out there since about 1;00pm and it was after 6. Unfortunately I did not make it out very far before some one tried to help me and then discovered that I was in a cold sweat. They got medical personal and I was taken to a place to recover. I think that I was at the beginni... Sun, 19 Feb 2017 01:20:09 EST Frustrated Last week I was outside talking to a neighbor and I heard something being thrown into my garbage can, it turns out to be a beer can and the guy put it in and did not even ask if he could and I thinks that he is drinking and driving along with hiding it from his wife. Tonight my son found another one this time thrown in our drive way and my son took it to his home and put it on the front door. I will be calling the police to see what can be done since he is drinking and driving. My neighbors h... Fri, 20 Jan 2017 03:00:20 EST After Matthew!! <img src=""> <BR> Well did not flood here and was not too bad. Did lose some of the plastic roof that my late husband put up but that was getting old and brittle from the sun. So this time I will be getting tin to put up so that it will last longer. Will get pictures of it along with all the limbs in my yard. Did not lose any trees like some of my neighbors did but at least from what I seen the trees did not hit th... Mon, 10 Oct 2016 23:26:01 EST Hurricane Matthew!! oh my!! It is here and now just waiting it out. Right now it is allot of rain and high winds with thunder and lightening. We are hunker down in our home and have the windows all closed up. This is just the start of it. We were getting the bands of it but now is more of it. Will have to check the radar again to see what is happening outside. Might not get much sleep tonight with this hurricane here. Being that it is a cat 4 means that anything could happen. I do know that what ever happens I am in God... Thu, 6 Oct 2016 22:38:36 EST Tarring the post and getting tar off the hands the easy way and not with gasoline Well today I did the tar on my posts and then had to get the tar off my hands. My son said that the only way to get it off is to use gasoline and I did not want to do that so I went in and was using my nail polish remover that I don't use because I have stopped painting my nails for a long time. Well that took off some but only if it was very light on the skin. So I tried Avon Skins-So-Soft and it took it off and did not have to worry about my hands stinking from gasoline or the nail polish. ... Sun, 31 Jan 2016 22:55:29 EST The storm <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <BR> This is what I woke to this morning after the storm that came through here starting yesterday and ending around 8 in the morning. We were under a tornado warning and we have very high gusts of wind, I would even say that they were micro-bursts by the way they sounded. Very bad storm and there were lots of branches down too. This is my fence and it knocked down three posts and there is... Sun, 17 Jan 2016 22:49:44 EST Update about the cardiologist appointment Well I got bad news at my cardio appointment. It seems that my lungs have high blood pressure and looking up on the internet and the news got even worse. So I told my son that if I started to spit up blood to let me go. Not sure if he was happy to hear that but I wanted to make sure that if I could not make that decision then he would know what to do. And the cardiologist wants me to go and get the procedure that will remove 90% of my stomach out and he said that might help with my problem. N... Thu, 6 Aug 2015 03:23:55 EST Update on the heart Well had the echocardiogram done and have not heard anything about it so far. I will be having an angioplasty done on the 22nd of this month and found out that I have to be laying down after that for six hours, so that means that I will be in the hospital all day. Wish that I knew that before hand and I did tell my son that make sure that his day is clear for that day too. So glad that I told him that. <BR> <BR> <img src=" Thu, 16 Jul 2015 23:29:54 EST Update about health problems They think that I might have a blockage in my heart and I will be seeing the cardiologist next month, they are booked up until that time. Then I get a blood test done and my thyroid is low so the doctor wants me to have another blood test done either this week or next. To see if it is still low. That is about all that I can tell you and yes I know that is a long time to wait until I see a cardiologist. Fri, 12 Jun 2015 00:07:03 EST Update on stress test. I did have the stress test done and there was an abnormality in the test but don't know what that means since I have not seen a cardiologist yet. They were suppose to do the referral but I guess I am going to have to call and find out why I have not gotten the doctor. <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Well I did call but have not heard from them yet! Mon, 18 May 2015 00:16:42 EST I have one!! <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Saw this on one of the pineapple tops that I had planted some time ago. I know that they take 3 years to produce and did not realize that it has been three years since I have been collecting pineapple tops and planting them. Too bad that once they product it that is all that they produce. One plant and one pineapple. I have learned too that the leaves on it has little teeth that will stick into your skin so I am n... Sat, 28 Mar 2015 23:32:38 EST Health problems, very tired lately Been tired lately and I am having some chest problems too but that has been going on for about a year or more, not sure how long and I did bring it up to my rheumatologist too and he wants me to have a stress test. A full stress test too and that is not something that I am looking forward to because the last one I had(in 2005) was a chemical one and it felt like I was going to die when they put that stuff in my arm. I understand why they do not want you to eat before the test because if I h... Wed, 14 Jan 2015 22:04:14 EST Frustration with my phone Silly phone won't let me get my pictures off of it and I also got my children to try and they could not get them off so they say that there is something wrong with my phone and so now I have to take it to the place so that I can get them to fix it. So frustrating to have that happen. Seems like the more high tech it is the worse the problem they seem to have. Fri, 7 Nov 2014 23:33:18 EST A Slice of Bread Can Fracture Your Bones Carl Lowe | Jan 20, 2014 | <BR> <BR> If your digestive system reacts to bread and other foods made from wheat, rye or barley (which contain gluten), your bones may be in danger. So the sooner you give up gluten the better. <BR> People with celiac, an autoimmune sensitivity to gluten, often suffer chronic damage to their small intestine. The result of this damage, according to researchers at Karolinska University Hospital Stockholm, Sweden: a greater risk of a broken hip or other bone fractu... Thu, 30 Jan 2014 01:29:28 EST Ginger going wild <img src=""> This plant was started with a root that I bought at the store about five or more years ago. I got tired of having the ginger rotting in my fridge and decided to see what would happen if I planted it and now I have ginger anytime that I want and don't have to worry about running out. I have to transplant it but am waiting until the leaves on this plant to die and I will transplant it into a bigger pot and maybe even planting ... Thu, 7 Nov 2013 14:40:31 EST Pass it on. Got this from one that is on one of my teams. <BR> <BR> Asked by a Spark friend to copy and paste ..... <BR> <BR> We could all use these words of encouragement now and then. <BR> <BR> Everyone will go through some hard times at some point.

Sun, 13 Oct 2013 23:47:03 EST Patent confirms that aspartame is the excrement of GM bacteria by Michael Ravensthorpe <BR> <BR> (NaturalNews) In 1999, The Independent published an article entitled "World's top sweetener is made with GM bacteria," which revealed that Monsanto was knowingly adding aspartame to soft drinks in the United States - and that aspartame is made from GM bacteria. This report, which remains one of the earliest disclosures on aspartame in a mainstream newspaper, received little attention after its publication - possibly because its implications were underestimat...

My husband had to go into the hospital and get platelets since he was at 3(yours should be over 150,000 - 400,000 platelets per microliter (mcL).) Then the doctor checked his mouth and sent the infectious doctor in to see it and he said that he has mold growing in his mouth. I know that mold grows in showers but never have I heard of it growing in the mouth but then again it is the perfect environment to grow in. Moist, dark, warm and has food too. He has a hard time eating because of it too.... Tue, 29 Jan 2013 00:56:45 EST Confused about what is going on with hubby Yesterday he had blood when he urinated and that was until he went to bed. When he got up in the morning there was not blood at all. He will be doing a urine test but I am not sure that they can tell us what happened and I think that when he got that potassium IV that is what caused it. He never had that problem and it went away. He has enough on his plate right now with the cancer and with all the lumps on his body. He also started a new chemo treatment this week too. So I am not sure which ... Tue, 8 Jan 2013 22:44:06 EST Did it again!!! I can't believe that I cut my finger again but this time it was at the tip and on the same finger. It also makes it hard to type and I have to keep going back and retyping what I meant. It also hurts like crazy. More nerves on the finger tips than in the other place that I cut. Did it yesterday when I was preparing food. Knives and me do not get along and these last cuts were deep and need stitches to close them., <em>198</em> <em>46</em> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeop... Wed, 7 Nov 2012 21:15:57 EST He has lumps on his body <img src="">He found some lumps on his body and it started out as one now he has at least six. Some of them come and go but there is one that has been there for a longer time and that is also the biggest one too. I am not sure what they are going to do and even the doctor just shook his head and I could see in his eyes that he is at a loss about what to do. I just wish that my husband would go natural since I have been reading more and ...

He has the cancer back and it is in his muscles and it seems that he just can't shake this, but now it seems that God is trying to tell him to go natural and not back to those chemicals because there was a person that told us about a doctor that believes that cancer can be cured and that person gave us the name of that doctor. It is something that I have been telling him for the last couple of years but now it seems that God realize that maybe someone else needs to tell him that. I have been ... Thu, 2 Aug 2012 22:04:52 EST He needs a biopsy on his right calf. He has some type of mass in his right calf muscle and they are trying to get it biopsy this week if they don't do it this week that it will be done next week. I wish that I could take him this week but tomorrow I will be having a Colonoscopy and they will be going in the mouth into the stomach and some of the intestines too. So no driving for at least 2-3 days and I am not suppose to go out of my town for 7 days. I want to be with my husband and support him in his time of need. Please pray fo... Tue, 24 Jul 2012 22:34:58 EST Going home!! Tomorrow we will be home until the 30th of this month. We have to come back just one day and get his PET scan and CT, then they will take out the thing that they put in him for the chemo and bone marrow transplant. Don't know how many times we will have to come back and check in with them but don't care right now because we are going home tomorrow. His blood count is getting better. Thank you all for the prayers for him. Praise our Heavenly Father for His mercy!! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://... Mon, 21 May 2012 22:58:32 EST I was so nervous in court today. Had to go to court today because of an accident that I witnessed. It was between a handicapped school bus and a small pickup truck. Needless to say the truck lost. It had a broken axle and scrapped the road as the trouper drove it off the road to get it out of traffic.. There was no children on the bus and that was good since it was a bus for special needs children. The windows were dark and I was talking to the bus driver at court since we were there early and that is when I found out that t...

One day he is feeling good and then the next day he is feeling bad. Today we went to go get more medicine for him and while I was in the store he got sick and when I came out he told me that he threw up and so we went back to the place that we are staying and he laid down and rested. Did get him to eat something so that he could take the meds that we picked up because they said that it had to be taken with food. Don't know if it is Graph-host...

This time they will be using our sons bone marrow to give to his daddy. We will be there for a couple of days then go home and come back in about 10 days for the hard part. We will be there over 100 days from the time that they give him the bone marrow. Have to make sure that I also keep healthy so that he will not get sick because it could kill him if he does. He will have no immune system because of the chemo kills it.... Sun, 22 Jan 2012 21:39:21 EST He is in remission with both of them He had a whole body scan done on Thursday and the doctor called us later and told us tthat he did not see any hot spots at all on his scan. So now they are saying that he is in complete remission from both cancers. Now this is ALL God's work since he has stage 4 cancer and the doctors did not expect him to live even 6 weeks from the time he got diagnosed with it. <BR> <BR> Both of the cancers that he had was also rare and only about 75 people in the world have it. So Yes it was ALL God's ha... Fri, 2 Dec 2011 21:33:09 EST We are now in the 21 century We now have a phone that you can also go on the internet and do other things with it. We just had a basic phone but with all the stuff that is happening with my husband and that we might be going to Shands again for a transplant then he decided that it might be better to get one of those phones for us or should I say two of them. One for him and one for me. Now we have to learn how to use them to its full capacity. Now just to figure out how to get those ring tones that my daughter sent me a... Thu, 17 Nov 2011 22:45:07 EST Lets talk about Cancer After Steve Jobs died, my husband was talking to me and saying " Why do people keep telling me about all the people that die from cancer, Don't they know that is not want I want to hear". And he is right because it is telling that person that there is no hope in getting rid of cancer. That person is fighting for their life and does not need negative info. After he got cancer I realized that I had stopped telling him about the stars that died because most of them died of cancer and I did not w... Tue, 8 Nov 2011 23:16:35 EST Did a dumb thing today While washing dishes I ended up cutting my finger real bad and needing four stitches in it. It bleed for a long time and even while they were stitching it it kept bleeding. I go back Wednesday to have them check it to make sure that it is ok.

I could walk on the foot but the top was hot and swollen and it did hurt but only on top. Now I have to let the foot rest and to keep it up and also to keep off of it. Now I have to figure out how to do that and take care of my husband who is in a wheelchair since his cancer caused him to loose the ability to walk. He is getting better ...

But right now they are trying to kill the cells that keep coming back. It seems to move to different parts.. It first started in his esphagus and then moved to his bone marrow now it is in his lymph system and in his muscles. The worst is on his neck and it changes his voice and he sleeps allot. Now they also checked his brain and spine s... Mon, 22 Aug 2011 22:07:57 EST Happy Birthday hubby Today is my husbands 56th birthday and I did not think he would make it with all that cancer that almost took his life earlier this year. But sweetie you made it and I pray that I will be having more with you in the future. I know that this next couple of months will be hard as you go through another bone marrow transplant but I pray that our son's bone marrow will cure you and that we will be celebrating more birthdays together.

He was only 39 years old and now he is gone. He was no t feeling well Saturday night and from what I heard that he did not wake up. Died in his sleep. He did become a organ donar and they sent his body to Miami to harvest the organs. Don't know when he will be buried but hopefully my husband can go to it too. They will also preform an adtospy on him to see why he died. His girlfriend is very upset and they have been in a relationship fo... Mon, 18 Jul 2011 22:19:03 EST How long will this keep going on? Today we had a talk about what is happening in his body. He has at least two lumps on his back and the one on his neck is hard but weird shaped. The doctors keep pressing chemo but he has been through at least three different treatments and they have not worked. The cancer keeps coming back more aggressive each time. They just seem to throw anything at him to see what will work (if it does not kill him first) and they don't have any answers to his questions. This time he says that he will com... Fri, 17 Jun 2011 21:56:47 EST Update on the cancer progress He seems to be responding to the treatments, the swelling in his neck is going down but he still can't walk and sometimes the doctors don't tell him what they are going to do and he gets upset because then they spring it on him and he wants to know what they are doing and what they are planning. Since we got the advocate involved we have been getting more info. It also helps that he has a sister that is in the medical field too and knows more about how to get stuff done and how to get answers... Tue, 3 May 2011 23:41:38 EST The Two Cancers He has two different cancers in him and they say that it is a hybrid and that it is very rare too. It is a cross between Multiple Myeloma and Plasmablastic lymphoma. These two cancers are not suppose to be in the body at the same time and the second on it usually found in HIV people ( he was tested and does not have HIV). They can not explain why he has it and they are dumbfounded that he has it at all. It is now in his spinal cord and it is pressing on his nerves that is causing him to not f...

Had been having shoulder problems and finally went to the doctors about it and they sent me to PT and she said that it looks like my shoulder joint was out of place but it does not hurt like they show you on TV. I am double jointed in my knees, toes and some of my fingers but never thought that it was like those people that you see on TV that go through the tennis rackets. So now I will be g... Tue, 22 Feb 2011 23:10:56 EST Getting real with myself. Since December I have put on about 30 pounds but have not changed my tracker. I know that I need to do that and start to get serous with this weight loss. I also have found that I am a stress eater and with everything that is going on in my life I have been eating anything that I see. I got to put every thing in God's hands and let Him do His will in my life. I also know that if I had been at the weight that I was and the condition too that I would not have been able to deal with what my husb... Tue, 30 Nov 2010 19:53:39 EST Delays in his treatment. We were suppose to be in Gainesville and having him have his bone marrow cells taken from his this week but because of him testing positive for hepatitis (A or B, he is not sure which one) he has to wait a week. He thinks that he was exposed to it when he was in Korea in the late 80's but I think that he was exposed to it when he got those blood transfusions when he was going through chemo. If he has it active they will treat it so that he will be ok. In a way it is a blessing in disguise b... Sun, 31 Oct 2010 15:54:47 EST It will happen in November. Tuesday after we got back from Gainesville and the doctor said that he might have to go through five to six chemos before he would get the transplant. Not good news for my husband. We got a call from the transplant team and they said that he will go with this chemo here and then they will start doing the process for getting his blood for the transplant and will start the process the end of this month. We will be gone from home until around Christmas and then he will be monitored here after we... Fri, 1 Oct 2010 19:59:31 EST Great news on the bone marrow biopsy!!! Hubby was getting ready to go to the hospital to have his third round of chemo and he got a call from his cancer doctor but the nurse said that he was on the other line and she would have to call back when he got of the line. We both thought that it was bad news since he got the bne marrow biopsy done last week and that it was to be done some time this week. Well she called back about 10 minutes later and the doctor said that it was a preliminary report but they could not find any cancer in h... Tue, 14 Sep 2010 23:46:30 EST They found 2 that match We got a call from the bone marrow transplant team and they said that they found 2 people that match all ten points and that they also found 2 that matched 9 of them. So that is great! Now he has to get done with the chemo and then we will be having the transplant done. Please still pray because we don't know if the people are still wanting to give or if they are still alive. He is amaze that they found one so soon and even more amazed that they found 2 that matched and 2 that have 9 points t... Fri, 3 Sep 2010 23:26:48 EST
