I would like to start a forum to meet other middle age or older women who have bc and love the Lord.  Try to live your life for him, walk the walk and talk the talk.  Of course we all fall from grace because we are human but we are covered by the blood of Jesus.  Also this forum is for people who has a large enough vocabulary that they don't need to use profanity to explain theirselves.  I will start.

Pr.3:5-6 is one of my very favorites

James is the same. Fever spikes and then aspirin will knock it down a bit - 'round the clock. I hate his taking so MUCH aspirin but his temp goes REALLY high if he didn't take it. Ibuprofen is worse on the liver and Tylenol is completely out of the question.

I was able to get him aspirin (with crackers & milk) BEFORE the temp spiked last night/this morning around 4 a.m. and actually got to finish the night in OUR bed! Neither of us sleeps well but at least we were together. (Misery loves company, right?) The doctor said that if we didn't hear from them by tomorrow to call so I'll give them until afternoon tomorrow. They changed computer systems and had completely LOST all those test results from the specialist last year. They were SUPPOSED to call & get them re-faxed but I'm not holding my breath. The surgeon who did my bilateral mastectomy in December of '15 left a message on our phone last week to call them and get a 6-month appointment - and added "I guess we should have done this last year"! I don't have much confidence in competency sometimes.

Thank you Nancy for asking. I'm HAPPY you will be off the antibiotic now and HOPEFUL that infection is gone! I also hope when you have the cyst removed that it never comes back. The one beside my nose was removed FOUR times (and THAT was fun!). Like I said, now if I get a flair up I put the topical antibiotic on it twice a day and by the 3rd day it is fine. I would be happy to send you some of mine if you would like to try it. :o)

Blessings,

Ade

Nancy, thank you for asking. Yes, I still read this thread almost daily, and you all are in my prayers. Unfortunately the news from the scan was not good. My lung mets are showing a 20% progression overall instead of the remission my MO was hoping for (and assuring me of!). However, I only saw his PA, and can't get in to see him until 5/2. I'm sure he's going to want to try another aggressive treatment. In the meantime, I'm getting my dental work done - full extraction and implant-retained dentures.

I did make it to church for Easter, a Saturday night service, and it was glorious. And Sunday I prepared our traditional leg of lamb, which DH is still raving about. My special herb blend.

My sister's granddaughter had her baby last Thursday, his name is Thor, and he was born during a thunderstorm! Cutest baby, redhead like his daddy. Mom and Dad are over the moon in love with him, and each other.

My new avatar is a picture DH took of me while we were in Branson; my new wig looks great I think, after my hairdresser worked his styling magic on it.

That's all I have for now. Still struggling with the fatigue, but PCP is trying me on a bit of Adderal to see if that will help.

Ade, I sure hate to hear when things like that happen and blatant mistakes are made when we are trusting our medical team to give us the best care. Praying test results get faxed and your mammogram a year late will still be good news.

I sure hope James fever will break as this is so hard on both of you.

Thank you in your willingness to share. I will see my pcp next week and I want him to look at this cyst and tell him about the antibiotic making me sick and just see what he says about preventive treatment. He may just pass me off to my dermatologist or my surgeon. Because I am a swimmer I am open to alot of stuff and I did go swimming the day before this got really bad. I know now what NOT to do. I also have a cyst on my nose and have not done anything. After your experience I will leave it alone unless it becomes a problem. That sounds like a very painful place to have one removed. No fun for sure.


Mags, I was hoping things were going well when we didn't hear from you. I am so sorry to hear your results were not what you were expecting. I will certainly be praying for you and for wisdom in what to do next. Glad you are getting your your dental work done.

It sounds like you had a wonderful Easter and your lamb was definitely a hit! Good for you.

Thor, born during a thunderstorm. Makes me smile and a redhead too. Congratulations.

I love your new wig. You look great. I hope you had a good time in Branson.

Don't be a stranger. We will pray for you during this journey.


Have a good night dear sisters. I just heard an hour message from Priscilla Schier (War Room). Boy can she deliver a message!!!!!! Powerful.

Praise the Lord this is the first full day in 9 that James hasn't had a fever. I am hopeful but cautiously so.

Last week the Dr. said to call if we had not heard from them regarding the recent culture test results by Wednesday. This afternoon (Thursday) James called and they could not FIND the results! UGH! Then he was disconnected. He called back and was transferred to someone else who didn't answer their phone and a message came on to call back later. Since James talked with them twice already today and they knew why he was calling he THOUGHT they would return his call. Of course they didn't. So - we wait - yet another day - and HOPE that when we call back tomorrow SOME one will have some answers for us. I am trying to be in His peace about this...not easy.

I had a good day yesterday. Today I am feeling hyper. I got some blood work back. I suspect my thyroid meds may need adjusting after seeing one of the test results. My HDL is 135 which is actually getting a little scary for me. That is the good cholesterol and I have no idea why it keeps getting so high. My pcp will say that is great but it is just strange.

More later.

Good morning sisters.

Mags love the new look. You are right it looks great, just beautiful!. Will be in targeted prayer for your next treatment plan and upcoming dental work.

Always love your banners Nancy, praying you are feeling better.

Aurora, praying you and your mom are living it up 😜. Interesting how I now cherish and just love spending time with my mom! I get excited like a little kid when she comes to spend the weekend with us. This is a testimony as bing brought up by a single mom and being the oldest kid needing to take on responsibility that was required our relationship has not always been healthy. But God mended and we are so very close and she is my hero and anchor. Just get emotional thinking about our journey.

Praying for all especially for our sisters that are in active treatment, dealing with any pains and or may need emotional and spiritual strength and uplifting. I pray for all often and targeted prayers for those that have PM'd me and for our sisters that are dealing with life long treatment.

I ask that you continue to pray for me and our ministry. Ministry is approaching two years young and God is blessing. We are small but God has sent us some powerful and skillful laborers. He has specifically spoken to us that our Ministry will be a house of prayer and outreach. We are full force following his orders. So keep us in prayer. Our first Prayer crusade was a blessing and brought a lot leaders and each night we saw the need and attendance grow as the word spread that our Heavenly Father was doing His thing. Our days that focused on specific prayer request was uplifting and powerful. We covered each specific prayer request. We have also started an outreach for young adults and older teenagers on life skills. We are in an underprivileged and spiritually lacking urban area and the need is great for this type of ministry. We are humbled and just in awe of the success and how God is allowing us to speak to the physical need and lay a foundation scripturally and spiritually at the same time. There is a hunger out there for God's ads and love.

Blessing and praying always for my loving Sisters in Christ. I read often to stay in prayer for each of you. Always feel to PM me

Love Across the miles,

Angie

Kae, praying you can make it through these next few days.

It has been a very busy time for me and I would appreciate your prayers for strength for this week as I have a bunch of doctor apts crammed into a few days. I will see the hand doctor tomorrow finally.

Since the cyst is still not looking good I can't swim so I hope to go out with my camera today. It is a gorgeous day and I am taking advantage of that.

After 5 calls to the doctor we just went to the office today and finally got a copy of the test results. Boy they (labs) don't give you ANY info! Looked up some things (10 out of 15 were "low") and best guess is an auto-immune disease or anemia. James is a nurse so knows a tad - but we need a PROFESSIONAL diagnosis. He's going to hopefully make an appointment by calling tomorrow. I can't believe they never mentioned a follow up appointment! Praise the Lord he's feeling weak but MUCH better!

Ade, so sorry that this blood work has been such a hassle. Do you have a way to get medical info online? I got to get my blood work results days before I see my doctor so I can be prepared and not shocked by anything. I hope James can get an appointment very soon so you can know what is going on.

Today for me felt like a mini vacation. I had no doctor apts and nothing on the calendar. Since I am not able to swim yet until this cyst heals more I had a beautiful free day so headed towards our local arboretum with my camera. I will share some recent pics. Thank you for your prayers. I am feeling so much better. My fingers and thumb is the big issue now. GI issues much improved and I am SO thankful for that.

Teka, I saw about 14 pelicans migrating through a couple of weeks ago when I thought I was going to have to see one of my doctors at her out of town office. On my way to find her office I dropped by this migratory refuge and saw my first live eagles and then all of these pelicans. I was not feeling well back then so just went to watch and didn't have my camera but it was fun seeing these large birds.

Hello everyone! Finally a day off today where I can just go to a dexa scan and even get lunch with a dear friend. When you are on a busy whirlwind you sometimes wonder if you still have friends when things settle down. So I am grateful for the people God puts in our lives-He gives us who we need to be a shot in the arm.

Lita I would love to hear more about how your sharing in church experience went. Loved the picture of you and your daughter at the tea and also the one of you at church. God isn't done using you to bless others, so take that, Stage 4! Praying for your nausea and the radiation.

Ade, what is up with that office? Praying for James' ongoing recovery and that they get to the bottom or things. Yikes, the office manager might need to hear of your experience. Where I work isn't perfect but they would shut that hot mess of miscommunication down. So sorry to hear he had such a persistent fever and hope things are better soon!

Jean, hoping you feel stronger each day in all the goings on with Alexia. I just had a patient come in post hip surgery yesterday and she said it was the best thing she has done, and she is 70. They did the kind where they go in from the back of the hip sorta to the side and back with a pretty small incision, so she said her healing was better than she expected. Praying yours goes well in May!

Aurora, did you have a nice visit with your Mom? What a nice treat to see her! I sure miss mine but I am so comforted knowing she is probably cooking up massive amounts of food for everyone up there in heaven :)

Nancy, those cysts can recur and getting them removed is helpful but they don't typically do that until the antibiotics kick in and the infection quiets down. How yucky for you to deal with that. I dislike antibiotics and try to avoid them but when you are between a rock and a hard place what on earth can you do?

Love your pictures and hope the trigger thumb thing is resolved soon, it would be a loss to not see you take more pictures, they just refresh the soul.

Faith glad things went well with PET. I do not take anything for granted, for sure. I want to seize each day and make the most of it and try not to let stuff drive me nuts that I cannot control, and this comes from realizing that things are not always roses and perfect, yet so many on here pick up their sword and keep fighting.

Kae, reflux is awful and I hope they figure out some solutions that help you.

Joanne, you have blessed us all over the years and I am hoping you are doing well. xo

You are all beautiful people and I pray for each of you. Forgive me for those I missed.

Welcome Dimitria. It is nice to meet you but we are always sorry that we have to meet new people under these circumstances. God has allowed for us to all meet on this thread and lift one another in prayer and encouragement. Feel free to join in our little community here and post whenever you want to. Praying you are doing well in your recovery.

Jean, good to hear from you. When is your surgery date in May? We will be praying for you. I still am praying for Alexia too.

Cindy, good to hear from you. Hope you are basking in the light of your accomplishments and having more time for some R and R. Yes, my photography is so therapeutic just like my music performance used to be when I was able to play. My neck surgery stopped that but God blessed me with this totally unexpected blessing of photography and that only came about because of my bc journey. God has a way of weaving every part of our lives together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

I just got back from my initial visit with the hand surgeon. I am actually typing without my splint for the first time in a month. I got two cortisone shots in my hand which he said is 70% effective for trigger finger and thumb so I would asked prayer that I am part of the majority! If not we could do a second shot and then surgery if that doesn't do the job. I finally have some hope that a good resolution to this issue will happen in the near future. I hurt my fingers way back in Sept of 2015 pruning my trees and the problem never resolved but developed into trigger finger and then the thumb issue came out of nowhere.

I saw the PA today first and he was young (very good looking tooHappy). The nurse told me he looked like prince charming. LOL Let's just say that he could be a male model! Okay, gals, I am single and yes, I notice. LOL I asked him if he was aware of the trigger finger/thumb issue on the bc hormone blocking drugs and was not surprised when he said no. When the doctor did come in he said if anything it would maybe lead him to not delay treatments since I still have over two more years to go on my AI. I actually thought he might say the opposite esp. regarding surgery so I was glad to hear that.

Now I am off to the eye doctor. I have a 12 hour photography boot camp the weekend after next and I actually have hope that my fingers and hand will be able to handle all the hands on sessions we will be doing with our camera and tripods. I feel like the light at the end of my tunnel is visible now. I know I will have to have this cyst removed probably when I get back from my mom's but that will resolve. If my GI issues would completely resolve I would be so incredibly thankful.

Take care dear sisters. I pray for you all the time.

Lita, how are you doing? I hope your rads are over now and your pain and nausea are manageable.

Love,

Nancy

Hi Ladies.

I have felt all your prayers. Back, hip, and upper thigh still painful, but I can at least STAND UP FOR MORE THAN 90 SECONDS now.

Hooray! RO said the full effects of radiation Tx may take several more weeks as the spots that were zapped continue to heal.

They are zapping L2 thru L5 in one continuous arc. So far, skin hasn't burned as much as the last time I had rads. But we shall see. The side effects are cumulative. So far, Zofran has been keeping the nausea at bay (and it has a slight constipating effect, too).

I also had a Zometa IV bone infusion yesterday afternoon. The full effects of that usually hit me on 2nd or 3rd day after. I'm hoping for the best.

Blessings, dear ones!

Ade, I am so glad to hear that James has an apt on Thursday. Will be praying for some answers and praying for solutions. Thank you for your nice comments.

Demetria, when I got my diagnosis I really thought I would be the last person to get cancer because I was doing so many of the "right" things. As we all know cancer is no respecter of persons. When I knew something was not right and when I was heading towards my breast biopsy and knew things were not good the Lord gave me a message. He said I will never leave you nor forsake you...........and he hasn't and will not for you either. I got another message a couple days later and He said "Wait and see what I am about to do for you." I was not used to getting messages like these and I knew they were from Him. My photography came out of my bc journey and I think that was one of the many things God is showing what He has in store for me. I believe that for each one of you as well.

Lita, praying that you will quickly recover from the SE's from the rads and praying against the pain and nausea.

Faith, how are you doing?

Mags, praying for you too and wondering how things are?

Aurora, praying you are still enjoying your mom's visit and praying you are feeling better.


I saw my eye doctor and my eyes were really off this time. He asked me if I had experienced any headaches and I was just about to ask him about headaches and dizziness. He said yes, this could very well be the problem. I will get my new glasses in a week. This afternoon after almost finishing the round of doctors (one more to go tomorrow) I felt such hope that so many of my physical challenges are being resolved that I felt a freedom that I haven't felt in a long time. Thanks for your prayers.

Have a good night dear sisters.

Love,

Nancy

Lita, we're surely praying for you!

Nancy ~ I'm thanking the Lord for the renewed hope He has graciously given you. Praying the new glasses will solve at least one more malady for you.

I just wanted to share this bit of wonder from the Lord with all of you. He is a wonderful Heavenly Father to make flowers and birds, butterflies and sunsets to delight our hearts and lift our spirits. I praise His holy Name!

Blessings,

Ade

Ade, thanks for sharing that beautiful pic. You all or y'all have some beautiful sunsets. I guess that is why I am a nature photographer because I am so in awe of God' beautiful creations.

Have a good night.

Thank you, Nancy, and all the prayer warriors. Got news today that my mouth surgery is scheduled for this Thursday in the early morning. It's impossible to know what the pain level will be; we know there are teeth where the nerves appear to be dead, but we don't know how extensive that is. It will be done at the same hospital as my mx, and under general anesthesia. Appreciate your prayer coverage.

Also, got a call from the scheduler at the cancer clinic about my oncologist appointment next Tuesday. They want me there earlier because he wants a full half hour with me. I just thought that sounded ominous.

Still, I will trust. My times are in his hands
