Here it is a week later and I still haven't gotten the appt with the surgeon. I called again and apparently they forgot about me. I went back and reread the paper I was given regarding my visit with the oncologist. It also said to change my d... Read more

I saw my oncologist yesterday and all the info I had been given is wrong. There will be no chemo, the prefered choice is surgery followed by radiation. I am getting an appt with a surgeon this week. Who knows when it will be. It's so hard wh... Read more

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

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

Day After

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
