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.

This morning was 43 when I met my niece for home schooling. I'm in jeans, tank top, and a big fuzzy pull over from Eddie Bauer. Temp now says 59, high may hit 66...4 PM or later. Heat is on 65, not real warm but not bone chilling either.

Sandy - all the waiting tests us. You're more patient than I am. And RBG, some cried, I said (YELLED) really bad curse words multiple times - not at her, but for what will happen with this loss. And I immediately ordered my RBG tee shirt, "fight for what you believe in..."

We had a small vacation planned at a resort for our 25th anniversary. That needs to be cancelled still. It's a new world.

Ladies, I hope your day goes well!

We're holding off on scheduling our previously-postponed Hilton Grand Vacation stay at NYC's 57th St. location because Hilton is closing a lot of its Manhanttan hotels--including its flagship Times Sq. location. I don't feel comfy getting on a plane, and NY would require anyone coming from IL to quarantine for 14 days. We can't afford a stay that long, and what kind of a vacation is 2 weeks locked inside a small hotel room with just a microwave, Keurig and mini-fridge (and no room service)? We wouldn't be allowed to eat outdoors or even walk to Central Park!

Yup--the word "nevermore" has leapt off the pages of "The Raven" into our general vocabulary. Life will be forever different, because certain activities will never again be safely possible and certain industries will never come back. We may be culturally catapulted back several centuries: before restaurants, resorts, mass transit, cruises, live theater, concerts, spectator sporting events, in-person school and college classes, music festivals, wedding receptions, funerals (other than online graveside), etc. Unlike the 1918 flu, we may never get an effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 (we still don't have one against malaria, HIV or herpes, much less the common cold); so until we get a reliable, tolerable and affordable drug prophylaxis (such as the "cocktail" that prevents HIV from becoming AIDS), social distancing and masking--or throwing caution to the winds and accepting as routine the resulting massive death rates--will become the new "normal."

The upside to being "older" is that we at least have the memories of pleasures past.

We are very adaptable to change though Sandy. At least I hope we are. In general nothing ever stays the same. That said, it would be the ultimate to be able to live as we had been doing before the dreadful covid, but unless or until we do find something we will have to adapt to a far different style. I think we are not only adaptable but creative too. It would take time to appreciate changes since we lived for so long with great joy, but we are troopers and resourceful. I have faith. We have gotten through a lot, and we can get through this. We have a lot of young people around and many of them love a good challenge. We can do this and most of us will relish being able to explain to the young- in's about the real good old days.

Good morning, Ladies. We returned last night and did not stay over. The little waterfront places we wanted to go to were closed. Since we were on the far side of Beta, the water was sucked out, making the Gulf front very smelly. That county is not as far along in reopening and dining inside was not an option. So we ate fish sandwiches in the car. It was still wonderful to do a one tank wander and sleep at home. It is 66 degrees and perfect for the morning walk.

karen1956: I love to travel, retired in 2019 so we could travel more and we see how that turned out. I would not get on a plane now if they flew me for free to a "bucket list" destination. As far as cleaning a plane, they didn't do a good job pre-Covid and I am sure what they think is a good job now is not a vast improvement over past practices. When I learned they never really cleaned the blankets, just refolded and rebagged them, I was appalled. The pillows at least got a new cover but in this day and age of bedbugs, not a safe practice either. So thanks for sharing that feedback.

Going to be nice here again. Not getting over 75 if it reaches there and no humidity. This time of yr. we generally do have a lot less. At our age we are a bit immune to some of it. I have not been able to travel for a long time. Last time was in 2008 when I went to California ( 25 yr. home ) to visit my daughter and her family after cancer txs. were all done.

I would definitely ( had this happened back then ) not have gotten on a plane no matter how bad I wanted to go. So, good fortune for me at this time since I'd just as soon take day trips close to home though some of those are iffy too.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, get good test results if you have had tests, and good news for anyone having to see their Dr.'s. To those away from home I wish you well or a safe journey back.

I played golf yesterday at the nearby golf course and on every hole there were trees with glorious colored leaves. Eagle View is a lovely little course and I have enjoyed playing it this summer and meeting some of the nice women in the women's golf league. My companion yesterday was Merrie Ellen, who is 90. She was very welcoming the first day I played with the women's group and I have played with her a number of times.

We are fortunate this week to have some weather with sunshine and comfortable temperatures during the day. We haven't set a definite date but will be heading south in a couple of weeks. The Covid cases have crept up gradually but still remained relatively low. The situation has been worse at home in south Louisiana. Nothing much will change when we go home. Masks, distancing, staying at home. I probably won't be comfortable getting together with family members. Basically it will be exchanging one location for another that is more comfortable. Going back to "normal" isn't in sight.

Carole - one of my regular golf partners is also 90 - and plays better than I do! Oh well - it's the sociability and the chance to get out of the house.

Flying right now creeps me out - as does standing in line in airports. Our BFFs are returning from Michigan and we are trying to decide how long we want to wait before we get together with them. I thought we had decided on 10 days but Ken seemed to be backing off that today. So, to be negotiated. Neither of us has family here, so we have been a "family bubble" for years. Just upped our time together when other activities closed.

In the meantime, I am having trouble finding the positive. In my opinion, we have taken far more than 2 big steps back. The "pro-life" people don't seem to care that people are dying, especially if they are old. Or that people are unemployed, facing eviction and are food insecure, particular if they are people of color. Today I am just sad....Wish I'd bought that RBG teeshirt before January's woman's march. Another thing that for me will probably only be a memory.

Taco, count me in as liking pre-cancerous far better. As always, finding issues and dealing with them early is always better or you might say pre-cancerous. I really wish I would have insisted on getting something 'started' way back when I first had hematuria ( which isn't normal ) but since I had no pain, burning, urgency I waited. The same outcome may have taken place, but the difference is the risk. Had it not been papillary I likely would not be here -- so glad that your Dr. will start working on ridding you of this sort of for now -- non-issue so it won't become a big issue.

We will be under-going a slight warming trend. Mainly will result probably in getting rid of the long sleeve shirts for a bit which is okay. We are in that transitional period where inconsistency is more the norm. Otherwise all is well.

Hope you all have a beautiful day.

A lot of cats ( thinking of my what use to be large group ) make lots of 'noise' if they should have to travel to the vets. I'm sure they are anxious just like we are about trips to the Dr. They don't see need of it which I think in most cases is somewhat built into their DNA. They accept life on whatever terms present. Still, even if almost nothing is wrong, most visits are for something good in the end. It may be the cat will never feel/know it all that much, but we know much of why they go is to prevent issues they don't need to have.

Most cats and dogs sit still and behave once they are being examined because un-like us, the Vet presents an authority when they are out of their element so they generally behave unless they are a super aggressive personality.

Going to be another warmer day here. Nice because no humidity and only warmer, not hot. It looks cloudy and may stay that way since rain could come. Seems iffy now, but this time of yr. we can't be real sure.

I hope you all have a fantastic day. Saying hi to all those who aren't posting as much. You are being thought about for sure.

Whew, Petite--I had thought you meant you were getting your cat declawed. Glad to hear it was just a "kitti-cure." When I learned years ago that declawing surgery is actually amputation of the first joint of the toe, I vowed never to have it done. A cat with no claws can't defend itself, nor can it get down from a tree; and it tends to be aggressive in other ways. My aunt once had a declawed cat, and it had a habit of swatting and even biting people who walked past it. All the adoption agencies insist that adopters never declaw their cats, and breaking that promise is grounds for confiscation.
