Yesterday was a lot to do kind of day. As I waited for my ride, I started cleaning off the van. It wasn't an easy job as I had to chip away at all the ice. 90 minutes later and I had only cleared the windshield and the hood. The rest is stil... Read more

Another day

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      2 comments

Today I had to ask for help. It's a humbling experience. We try to be independent but sometimes circumstances are beyond our control. I try not to bother others with the exception of my daughter and even her, I know she's so busy so only for ... Read more

Excuses and satifaction

Friday, February 20, 2015      2 comments

I've had a lot of ups and downs but this past week has been good. The challenge I joined encouraged me to get it done even when I didn't feel like it. I could have made lots of excuses, a big one is feeling sorry for myself but my minor aches ... Read more

Results are in

I got a call early this morning with the results of my biopsy and it's confirmed that I do have lung cancer. If I had to pick between the good and the bad, I was fortunate to have the good cancer. It's slow growing, treatable and I don't have ... Read more

Get it done

Thursday, February 12, 2015      1 comments

I'm still in lots of pain and it's time to say something about it. I thought it would get better but it doesn't seem to be. Everything else is holding steady. Today is going to be another day of no exercise. I've been very lucky that my ... Read more

Day After

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      2 comments

I woke up this morning in such pain. I can take a lot but this is really something else. The coughing is causing pain in my ribs on the left side and every breath is agony. Luckily I was able to sleep most of the night. I still have a fever ... Read more

It's over!

I went in for my test and biopsy this morning. Now that's over and time to wait again for the results that will come in 4-5 days. The first test was apiece of cake but the biopsy itself was aweful. I expected to be asleep throughout the whole... Read more

I have another appointment on Tuesday for my biopsy and my nerves are shot. I can't wait to get this over with but like the last 2 times, a new snow storm is expected this weekend. Hopefully we can make it in this time and it's not cancelled a... Read more

I'm having a great week regarding this challenge that I joined. There are 2 other girls that are very competitive and our numbers are so close that we really work for top place. The challenge is to get in the most steps on fitbit. As the day ... Read more

The blizzard came last night and its still going on. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be but still a lot. The state is still shut down but I have no place to go. I did have a NSV yesterday when I hit over 10,000 steps on my... Read more

New hope

Saturday, January 24, 2015      5 comments

Yesterday was a very long visit with a top Yale specialist. He was arrogant, egotistical, and had a horrible bedside manner. He also kept me waiting for almost 3 hours. Perhaps that is what makes him the best. He is the first Dr to offer me ... Read more

I learned the test results and now it is certain that I have some form of cancer. It could be a carcinoid which is slow growing or it could be the metastatic kind, a faster growing one. My next step is seeing a Dr for a consult on Friday who w... Read more

Peace again!

Today is a new day and I'm back in my routine. I slept last night with a peaceful acceptance of what will be, will be. I can't change anything so it's time to put things aside and be as normal as possible. During this time, I gained 4 lbs, an... Read more
