I know the feeling. My wife has been on my case for 19 years to slow down but I couldn't seem to
Now after 2 bouts of Lung Cancer, Eye Tumor and Glaucoma in four years, I am slowing down
I just am not giving up. I can still do pretty much what I did before, it just takes a while longer and I am not punching a time clock so.............

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

Easy does it Jean, as much as you would like to your body needs to go a bit slower until after the chemo is through and you are feeling your chipper self again.

Jean's updates....

Physically I am OK just so washed out! I am trying to do things in 15 30 minutes blocks....so far it is working! I am just not going to get everything done though and that is always worrisome to me...just know that I am always thinking about you!!!! And I will get back!

I did get all my exercise in including my arms which I haven't been able to do for the last week, but they are back in my routine!

Thinking of you! And I really appreciate all of the warm support!

Manny I pray that Thursday went well for you....

I got my schedule and it has really helped!

The oncologist really is worried about how fast I have dropped in sodium and w/o benefit of CT scan says that that indicates that the bid C is growing very quickly!

Here is my chemo schedule. . .Monday is pre-chemo blood work... Tue is bad day where I will have about a 4 hour stint... then Wed and Thur are my routine days about 1-1.5 hours daily for treatment and Fri is the quick belly shot. Then I have 2 weeks off and start again. Right now the plan is to do 4 rounds like this. Pray that I can handle this without losing everything that I have worked for! But if I do I am going to count on you to help me back!

Thus I will be on and off after this week-end maybe. But I will be back. . . . in fact I may have the motivation to ever leave!

Thanks for all of the support that I have been given! And if not too selfish (many need it) think about me when you can!

Status update 2/28/2013 Slachetka103145

I am scheduled to have my port added at 12:30 CST tomorrow. Last time I decided that I would wait...now I have to feel sorry for the nurses at the clinic because they have a hard time.... I will do some b/4 I go and as much as possible to keep in touch. I will definitely be back on Saturday!

Thanks Manny,

When I got to the clinic today my Sodium had dropped to 126 from 137 So So I had to do a sodium IV.

Do you have small cell as I do or is yours non-small!

I will carry you close in heart too for your check-ups!

Hi Jean,
We are praying for you: I have been told God doesn't give me more than one can handle, and if one can't handle turn it over to him.
I am scheduled for Thursday, labs, scan and consult. I have a spot on my liver that is being checked. Last scan my lungs were clear.
Please take care and prayers are coming your way.
I like Dr. Seuss.

On my way to oncology clinic. Will give you an update as soon as I can. May have to wait until tomorrow for results but I will be back on when I get back later this morning one way or the other!

I am OK and am proceeding as I learned from Dr. Seuss!

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

Greetings to both of you! I was beginning to feel panic as I am waiting for Tuesday to find out how soon I have to start chemo again!

Thanks Manny,
I need this forum more than ever now as I have to find another Primary Care Dr. and no one around here is taking new patients. My surgeon is going to see if he can help me find one. My current Primary Care Dr. has gone into Concierge Medicine which I don't need and can't afford.
