I am an "older" woman with breast cancer (I was diagnosed at 65 and am now 66).  I notice that most of the posts seem to be from people younger than I am (often by quite a bit...).   I'd love to "talk" with others my age, exchange info about their diagnoses, effects on their lives, etc.   I see that there is a forum for young women.

Someone suggested that maybe it's that older people aren't so computer-savvy or aren't used to being in online discussion groups.   However, for those who are, it would be great.

Ah, sun today and not too cool on this my last work day for the next week. My own bed will be wonderful as well as not having to go anywhere ( at least till feral cat feeding time ) shortly after I get up. It may ( or may not ) rain late this evening, but sounds like we will start getting warmer temps on a more consistent basis. We will see -- it is hard to feel a lot of confidence the past few yrs. I'd just like a little less wet weather and have dry out time in-between.

Was thinking about the singing -- mainly because the stroke I had wiped out my ability to carry a tune at all. Wow !!! I embarrass myself now, but when I'm alone I can laugh about it. When young ( if you are old enough this will probably be familiar ) many people said that I sounded just like Kitty Wells. Maybe -- I wasn't hearing what they heard. I grew up on country music. Back then it could be sort of wangy and twangy, but it isn't now. It has had an update. I actually am prone to listening to lots of different kinds of music and instruments. I'm very fond ( love dearly ) music played with a pan flute as well as Celtic music.

Going to be a beauty of a day. Hope you are all well and going to enjoy good weather as well. Hugs to all.

Be grateful simply for being alive. When you are grateful for life, pure and simple, your life becomes one you can be grateful for. That may strike you as circular or even backward logic, but your attitude really does have an effect on how things work out.

Hmm, I have the thread all to myself again it seems. Dark, gloomy and woke up to rain. Just a bit ago it darkened way down again and though I didn't see the lightning I did hear lots of thunder. Seems to have all gone away quickly though It won't be a pretty day. Sure glad we had warm temps and afternoon sun yesterday. Sigh !!! I am getting frustrated with so much "wet" time here and hope it slows soon. Guess I'm normal as I don't want the feast or famine end of things either -- just a better pattern for raining but actually getting some dry out time before the next rain. Hard to keep up with mowing, outside painting or anything that depends on dryer weather.

I'm off for five days so that is nice. I hope you are all doing okay and not fighting too many tears from the sky.

nanette7fl Oh, I'm so sorry you're going through this. I had a drain on one side for five weeks after BMX--slow healing on that side due to previous radiation + also a hematoma. I empathize so much! Of course you have to be safely healed before radiation. My friend is a PT who specializes in lymphedema treatment; hopefully you have some support on that issue? Warm wishes for good healing ahead.

Well, well, well. Here comes summer. Sunny mostly and 89 today. Feast and famine mode carrying on a usual to a degree. We go from barely warm weather to REALLY warm. Hopefully though we won't melt. I do see breezes outside and I'm hoping there will be enough to keep us all right. Usually this time of yr. we don't get too hot. The sun is a bit muted and that may hold.

Sure didn't get much done yesterday. Some odds and ends and a trip to the grocery ( Walmart style ) that is my second home. Hoping I am a bit more productive today though I do need to fit in a trip to Aldi's.

Hope you are all going to have a beautiful day.

Gentle hug of sympathy, Nanette.  

I have sad news to share.  My mother died yesterday in the early hours as she lay in her bed at the nursing home.  She put on her call light about 3 am and told the CNA that she didn't feel good.  The nurse came and started my mother on oxygen.  By the time the ambulance arrived my mother was non-responsive.  Once again she made things easy on her children and caregivers.  My sister Michelle and I have had conversations expressing the wish that our mother would pass peacefully when the time came and not suffer.

The funeral will be on Monday.  In the meanwhile I will finally get around to packing for the trip north.  I will not need the airline reservation for a return in July.  I feel somewhat numb, though sad.  I wanted to share this news with my oldies bc friends.

I am so sorry Carole, but so happy that your Mom went quickly. No one can prepare for all the emotions of losing those who started us out in life -- and that we shared life with so long. You made so many memories and in time they will sustain you. Lots of peaceful thoughts and hugs to you and your family on your path to letting go.

I found that everything after my Mom was gone became the first -- first birthday, Easter, Valentine's Day was hard to get through -- feeling a bit off since my Mom was no longer having them so we could share them together, but after that it became easier to recall good times and special memories. Sending lots of love to you during the days ahead.

Nanette, it just seems like forever is right now to you, but you will find the way and be stronger and better for it when you do. We grow through a lot in life and while it doesn't feel like it now, we grow though harsh illnesses too. It just doesn't feel like a very good lesson. We don't seem to grow much ( at least that we can notice well ) when things are operating smoothly. It is when big rocks block the path and we have to 'fight' our way through them that our mettle is tested and we 'grow' through difficulties. It seems like maybe this is one of those events for you.

(((Carole))). Sudden & painless in our beds at the end of a long life is the kind of death we all wish we could have. (Instead of behind the wheel...with our passengers screaming in terror...so goes the old joke.

Nanette, LE bites big-time. Awful storms here--tight arm, tight rings, ugh. No picnic for the sinuses or orthopedic hardware either.

Yet another sudden back strain...this is getting old. MO says no PET scans because my spinal X-rays show only bone spurs on the facet joints and bulging discs...which is the classic reason for back spasms: Nature's brace. (No blastic or lytic lesions, no fractures). PT helped only up to a point. (I used to get these spasms maybe once every year or two--now they occur "whenever"). Hate that we're just wearing out; I refuse to take opioids--they stop me up like a toilet that someone tried to flush a sneaker down, they make me dopey, and obtaining & fillling an Rx makes me feel like the pharmacist thinks I'm a junkie. Thank heaven for CBD, ibuprofen & Tylenol (which beat even Norco), topical rubs & patches, and a wraparound heating pad. (And a cane in every room). Found that THC only makes it worse (and me paranoid to boot), so I visit the dispensary only to get CBN & CBD products the shops don't sell.

Started raining this morning a while after we were up. A bit slow. We thought it would begin while it was still dark. So far nothing bad -- just a calm, slow rain. Would be nice if that kept up but thunderstorms are possible. This is the 'iffy' time of the season where big storms can come from almost nothing. So we are waiting and watching. In the meantime I did wash my car yesterday. Just got it back from the garage. My alternator was going and I caught it beforehand while it was still allowing me to come and go.

Well, it is not fun to be w/o a car ( at least not for me ) for a couple of days. Going everywhere I needed or wanted in Dh's truck. Don't know if I mentioned that it is hard to get into a 4-wheel truck for me. My left side ( slight weakness due to a stroke in my mid 50's ) needs to be 'forced' to do difficult things and I find half way into getting into the truck the forward movement just sort of stops and I sort of fall in. Car needed a wash before I left it at the garage and so I did it despite the rain so that it would not be spotted and streaky from dirt and road oils. I also got two new front tires on it and will get the other two in a month or so when I get the t.v. I had to replace paid for. As said -- it's always something.

Hope you all do okay today. Sandy and I often share pretty similar weather as she is about 4 hours to the north of where I am in deep central ( I sometimes just say southern ) Illinois. We are about on the line where we are.

Every now and then it "acts" up and I'm not electronically minded. We pay for a service to have someone fix these out - nesses when they happen.

Hope you are all going to have a nice sunny day. Thinking about your day Carole. Hugs.

Each day I am thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality and likes that turned into love. ~~~Elizabeth Kuebler-Ross Dx 9/27/2007, IDC, 5cm, Stage II, Grade 3, 0/3 nodes, ER+/PR-, HER2-
