Hi again Linda

Sorry to hear about Connie...its always good news and bad, isn't it? He's doing well, but its taking its toll.

My mum got a clear bill from the oncologist recently...so its good news there. She has very slowly gained back some of her strength and vitality, but its a long slow recovery process. You can't see it happening, but when you look back a year and then back another 1 and 2, there is a remarkable improvement.

My fear for her is that it will come back in the glands or in the other breast. She nearly died having the first breast off, so I don't know if she would survive next time.

I am due to have my yearly mammogram soon, but have been naughty and failed to have a pap smear last year.

Your doing a great job with Connie and he's lucky to have your love and support...you can't do much more than that - your seeing he's looked after and comfortable. Maybe an outing visiting his sister will be good for him if he doesn't overdo it.

Good losing those 4.4 lbs, wasn't it? I also love green tea, and it would be excellent for Connie too, such restorative and calming qualities (and antioxidants).

Well I hope everyone is doing well and I have chores awaiting...have a wonderful weekend.

Hi all. So, how is everyone doing?

I'm doing OK I guess. I lost a few pounds, but I attribute that to the prep for my colonscopy. I'm going to take it though, and try to run with it. I'm down 4.4 pounds.

The weather here is {{{{cold}}}. I've been drinking a lot of tea, to keep warm, and I find it's helping control my appetite. I've been drinking some green tea too. It's supposed to be very healthy. It took me a while to find one I like. Stash's is very good.

Connie(my husband) has been feeling down lately. The fatigue is getting to him. He's 54 years old, works at least 10 hours a day, driving, loading and unloading a truck. That's tiring enough, but the fatigue from his cancer and treatment is depressing. He can't seem to get enough sleep, and doesn't feel like doing anything on his days off.

I try to make sure dinner's ready when he comes home so he can just eat and relax a little before he goes to bed and starts all over again. There's really not too much I can do about it, which makes me feel so helpless. I'm hoping to get him to go out this weekend. His sister has invited us over, we were supposed to go last weekend but he was too tired. I hope he feels well enough to go. He needs to get out more and enjoy himself to help pull him out of his funk.

I haven't been around too much lately, because I'm still having trouble with my computer, and I don't have the $$$ to get it fixed right now. I hope everyone is well.

Linda
