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.

Ladies,

Appreciate the thoughtful, knowledgeable replies. Seems like brain fog made me overlook a trial of caring for young grandchildren. Makes perfect sense. My sudden diagnosis of mBC will probably make my family focus on the uncertainty of my health...unless time passes when I seem fine living with mBC. So, I'll get prepared to make lots of room for grandchildren without expecting to care for them on my own any time soon. Thank you, ladies.

When I was younger, I worked with an older gentleman and his wife who volunteered to watch their 9 month old granddaughter so their DD and SIL could have a second honeymoon. For a solid week he regaled us with the trials, tribulations and humorous moments of this mission. He said they were sleeping in shifts, taking naps (not prior to this adventure), and their final analysis was "they finally understood why God did not give babies to old people"! He was so pleased to get back to work so he could sit down and not feel guilty about it. Now that I have reached his "years", I can fully understand his message. LOL.

Love my grandchildren but they can wear you out given their surplus of energy. So we have "small dose" visits with a focus that will interest them. My GS loves to garden with me and his favorite chore is helping me transplant flower bulbs (daffodils to naturalize) and ferns from one overgrown area to a barer area. I just essentially provide direction and he does the heavier work: digging holes, putting in plant/bulb and covering them with dirt. We both get a sense of satisfaction form this joint project. Sharing a mutual interest is important to them as is being made to feel useful.

I also think the grandchild/children is great advice. Seems perfect to me. I also wish mrkho8 well on the mBC journey. Please feel free to come any time you like.

Mother's Day as well as Father's Day and really all yr. long I consider the days special. I'm grateful to be still here on this earth, but I do miss my loved ones. My Mother was very special to me. There wasn't a day in my or her life that I didn't feel her special kind of love for myself and my sister and Dad. She was stoic about her life which had a lot of harsh parts, but she made it look natural and easy. I never saw or heard any resentment from her for the hard days -- she really seemed to love us all enough not to notice them. She passed away in 1998. I've considered myself so fortunate for my Mom and Dad. They were exactly what I needed and I can't imagine having had any other parents. So, we celebrate our loved ones whenever they cross our minds which is often. We don't require a special day. In fact, we have come to see most holidays and birthdays the same way. They are days listed on calendars ( and yes we do have holiday meals and birthdays ) but not as elaborate as we once did. We decided it was just as easy to choose any ( 'remembrance day ' ) we wanted and have cake and ice cream or a slightly more special meal and enjoy memories of those not wish us.

Sun today which has been so nice and welcome -- about 70 as well which was nice. It though is a fluke I think as it sounds like the 60's weather will be with us yet a while longer. Daughter is starting her first afternoon shift. During covid they were not open overnight and they now find they do not have enough business to support having a 'night' person. So, they gave her 3 to 11 which is good for her. She can sleep in, in the morning still, but get home at a reasonable time at night. I'm usually in bed or will be when she gets home, but I will feel better knowing she is safe at home in the wee hours. It is safer here to work overnight than It was for the same corporation ( Circle K ) in Oxnard, Ca where she worked when she transferred, but I still worried -- always peeking out the front door almost immediately when I got up in the morning.

I hope you all had a really nice day.

Betrayal, what a great idea for visiting with grandchildren. I have no children or grandchildren but at one time I was a good aunt who did fun things with nieces and nephews. I used to keep an eye on children's movies and take them on movie dates, followed by a shopping trip. I once took nephew Jacob to a movie and before it was over, he asked, "Can we go to Walmart's now?"

Departure date is near, less than two weeks. I have been checking the weather in northern MN.

So my bonded parakeet pair that blessed me with a baby last July have decided to try to provide more babies this year. Currently mom is sitting on 3 eggs! Her spouse and baby are dutifully busy feeding her. The eggs are small but when you see how she has to position herself to cover all 3 it is a remarkable. She is flattened and spreads her wings while fluffing up her chest feathers. She prefers to lie flat on the paper at the bottom of the cage and rejected my attempt at providing her with a softer surface. She does leave them occasionally so I am able to clean the bottom of the cage quickly. So now I am in the watch and wait stage for about 2 more weeks. So far she has laid 5 eggs, but 2 broke so I discarded them, leaving one so she promptly laid 2 more. I'll let you know how things go.

I was able to leave the baby with the parents since they do not seem to mind its (unable to establish gender until they are a year old) presence. They still feed it on occasion though it is capable of eating on its own, just like us with our children.

LW422 Listen to your body and rest when you need too. Hopefully taking care of immediate needs ( rest ) asap will help to replenish us through our health -giving protocols. You are just aiding your body in what it asks for with hope it will respond with the best results possible.

Carole, only two weeks and then a summer's escape to cooler and more tolerable weather. Sounds like a great trade. I bet the people/owners of your resort are looking forward to your arrival.

We had some rain during the night, wee hrs. I think. Damp around the edges when we got up this morning. May get more and it will definitely stay in the 50's today. Don't mind that so much as the gray exterior of the sky. Well, sunshine has always been my thing though mainly for the " light " rather than spending overt amts. of time in the sun. I've never done gray well and at this late date likely never will.

Betrayal I am once again excited to hear about your Parakeets choosing to be parents again. Now someone could possibly ( done carefully ) write a whole small book about the life and times of your two parakeets and their children thru the generations. I'll be waiting with baited breath for further installments on the progress of the delightful Mom and Dad and small fry already here and helping.

No special plans today. Yesterday was longer than I usually like to spend at my friends farm but sometimes she ( along with the work I do ) really as much as anything needs to talk. She is often nervous about being alone ( her husband passed away a couple yrs. ago ) and since covid especially has missed going out to eat with friends or family and some of the visiting. I began helping her when she had a hip replacement earlier this yr. which she found somewhat upsetting. Recovery was slow and while she now walks well, like many of us, she still has pains sometimes ( I think mostly arthritic in nature ) which call for her to sit more than she likes. So way longer before I got home and that almost always means I don't get much done but not letting anything get worse.

I hope you are all going to have a really good Saturday.

So I am long beyond my reproductive years and have to take pleasure in the reproductive powers of my two bonded parakeets. Who knew they would survive long enough to reproduce since they need to be between 5-6 years old to do so. Their quiet chirps and sometimes noisy spats have provided background noise for those years and sometimes they would really amp up when I was recording a class for my students (when I was still teaching) when inclement weather meant the college was closed. The feedback from the students let me know who had listened to the recordings and those who had not. When a student would mention this in class, some of the others would appear to be bewildered so I knew they had not listened to the recordings and were not going to benefit from this class either.

The parakeets have made the Covid isolation somewhat bearable and were wonderful parents to the one they produced last July. So prior to last July I had 3 parakeets: the bonded pair in one large cage and a single (the talker) in a smaller cage. Attempts to mingle them were a complete failure, so Blue remains alone but he flies free on occasion and talks to me. Unfortunately 2 of the 3 cats consider him "meals on wings" so he has to be supervised when free. He bickers through the cage bars with the others but I have to watch because they will bite his feet, so I think they regard him as an invader.

I will regale you with updates as they occur. Happy Mother's Day to all.

So glad i've found this site, am 64 and newly diagnosed with mets breast cancer. Took a chance and retired early without insurance, but my 70 year old hubby was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, did have Medicare and felt it more important to be there for him. When i got the dx, flipped out for many reasons of course, but the knowledge that i had no insurance was terrifying. How would I get a dx, much less treatment. Turns out i contacted my local health department and they have programs for women's health issues that paid entirely for the mammogram, biopsy and will now start my states medicaid program to pay for the treatment. ; Don't know about the state where you live, but checking with your local health department may be the answer to your prayers ladies that are uninsured. Hope this helps someone, sure did me, knowing that i don't have to worry about the financial problem with this dx. By the way i live in the great state of Tennessee. love and peace

As stated as well, just having a place where you can relate just from an age stand-point.

We all enjoy each other's company here and work thru our personal issues with getting understanding and news of how someone else took care of a similar problem. We share tips of one kind or other, and even follow the adventures of one of our member's parakeets. So, there is something going on here all the time. It is just a bit less frantic here as we are a small group and we have mainly retired. We all hope -- whether you post here or not that your txs. go well for you.

Ah some sun today. Not as warm as what I hoped for but I'm sure the sun will make up for it, for me. My SIL called to wish me a Happy Day yesterday and says he is now finalizing plans to load up a U-Haul with car tow and come home. We are all happy about that. Dh fell off the ladder a couple of days ago. He was a bit stunned but okay. This was partially the reason my daughter and he chose to re-locate back here. We are not as spritely as we used to be and at times it is daunting to even do some of the more simple things.

It will be a big help to me to have someone who can help me organize when I'm up to it. I did make some good in-roads yesterday -- that is until my old paper shredder pooped out on me. Had to stop then and go to Walmart and replace it. I have so much that needs to be minced up before it goes out in the trash. I had the older style shredder which made sort of long strips but brought home a cross-cut this time. I like the new one much better. While it is more secure over-all, what I really like is that the throw-away material is a bit denser then the strip and I think you can fill a bag up with more material over-all. I worked all afternoon and filled a 13 gallon trash bag.

Since I stopped part way and went to Walmart that felt like enough for yesterday. More than I expected and my desk area is noticeably cleaner. Much came out of the two bedrooms ( one my old office ) and was all piled in front of my desk and on the bookcases in front of it. I'm really starting to like my 'new' office.

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday.

Welcome, RaggedEdge. Hang in there--at 65 you can get Medicare (and if you can afford it, buy a supplement that covers the co-pays). It felt incredibly freeing when my Medicare kicked in, sort of like how it must have felt catching the last helicopter out of Saigon in 1975.

Almost as freeing as when I got my second Moderna shot and again once 2 weeks had elapsed. I only hope you were able to be vaccinated too (I understand TN's gov't refused any more Federal supplies long before demand had dropped off). If you are hesitant, know that having cancer is a risk factor for serious illness should you catch COVID--which is why cancer patients had priority early on when demand far exceeded supply. The sooner everyone (including, as of today, those 12 yrs old & up) gets vaccinated, the sooner it'll be safe to fully reopen everything.

I like TN--been to Nashville four times and Memphis nine (not counting a guitar festival I once played in Jackson, midway between the two). I especially love the Great Smokies, en route to an annual folk music conference in the Blue Ridge foothills east of Asheville, NC--I am addicted to mountains, and am seriously "jonesing" because I haven't had my "mountain fix" since 2019. (Chicago can be pretty, but soooo flat. When I first got here from Seattle decades ago, I used to drive up to the "ravines" in the N. Suburbs just to see "terrain" and be able to shift my automatic transmission into 2nd gear like I used to in the Cascades. I drove up to WI in March to record a couple of concerts, and really enjoyed seeing hills, such as they were). My son & his fiancee are going to a wedding this month in Jackson Hole, WY, flying into & out of Bozeman, MT with a side trip to Yellowstone. They've fallen in love with Montana.

More rain in the forecast for today. The outdoors looks like a greenhouse. If the weather isn't too bad in the early afternoon, I plan to go to the gym for cardio and chair yoga class.

Good morning, ladies. I feel like a lump today. DH had another cluster headache at 3 am. He sees the doctor on Thursday.

Welcome to all the new folks.

Carole, We don't have any children either, but love the grand nephew and niece and their spouses. They are not talking children, so it maybe the end of the line.

Love the baby bird stories.
