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.

Jean sorry to hear that loss came so close to you. Will pray for the families and for your pastor.

Nancy I'm glad your incision is basically healed. Praise God! As for the CPAP. Medicare only pays 80% and I have to pay the difference which in this case is 82.70 but I can't afford it so the company sent me a waver form to fill out. I filled it out and sending it back today.

I saw my oncologist Friday and the blood analysis shows the tumor markers going down so chemo is working yeah! The se's (nausea, vomit, mouth sores, thrush) I consider them mild and worth the effort if it keeps the cancer at bay. Thank you for asking.

Praying that everyone on this thread is blessed beyond your dreams and finds peace and for God to pour out His Spirit.

Jean, I have prayed for Mark's family and friends. That crash was such a terrible thing affecting so many. It is always hard when that person is someone we know. Praying for all the families involved.

Aurora, I am so thrilled to hear your chemo is working. I continue to pray for your SE and I know you just had a treatment on the 7th if I am tracking your treatments correctly. I am glad that you will get your CPAP device paid for eventually.

I would appreciate your continued prayers for complete healing of the incision. I am not completely convinced yet that I am completely out of the woods. I took my last AB this morning and I think the next couple of days will be the test. I had some stinging and a little pain from it today and that is has happened in this whole continuing process when it started opening up and bleeding.

Love,

Nancy

Nancy, regarding the healing of your incision. I would recommend that in this critical point you rest twice as much as you usual do. Sleeping/napping gives the body a chance to recover. I know you like to keep busy and I'm glad you can but like I said sometimes we have to slow down in order to heal completely. Praying the all mighty God pours his healing balm on you.

Nancy, I pray you continue to heal with no further complications. Thank you for asking about my back, it looks like I have a sciatica problem. I'm trying to take it easy and ice it several times a day, It's wearing me out. When the pain is better I can start to exercise. I don't think I have a sinus infection as the AB hasn't made much difference in how I feel. I see my MO next week, maybe he will have an answer.

I've been reading and praying for everyone's needs.

Hope all of you have a restful night.

Let's continue to keep our eyes fixed toward the Lord, ladies. Snuck away with my husband to Napa for his away golf tournament. This shot was taken outside our ground floor hotel room under the California redwoods. While he's golfing, I will try to work on my third novel. It's been hard for me because the chemo affects my eyesight and I'm always fatigued.

I pray we all have either a restful weekend, if we need it, or a productive one (keep focused, Lita, and keep writing!).

Blessings to you all!

No, I have not fallen off the planet - but I did nearly lose my husband. On the 30th he had a heart attack. He just said he wasn't feeling well and would call the doctor the following Monday. He called ELEVEN TIMES and couldn't get through.

As the Lord would have it our doctor neighbor was walking his dog right when James was watering the garden. He asked how James was and he told him. Dr. Smith said to get to the Odessa ER immediately. (It is 3 hours away but our local "hospital" careflights anyone there who has a hangnail and the copter has to come from El Paso (3 hours away) anyway - so we called our son and hit the road. Our son is a federal agent and he put on his flashers, put the pedal to the medal and we got there in 1 hr. 45 minutes!

James was admitted when they saw his EKG. This was the 3rd of July. An angiogram heart cath showed extensive blockage and he had a quadruple bypass on the 5th. He was discharged on the 10th (!!!) with NO PAIN MED SCRIPT. and we came home. We did get pain meds from his local doctor thank the Lord.

Our daughter flew in from Ohio and has been my rock and SUCH a help. When we picked Maggie up from our son's SHE was sick!

It has been a VERY hard week. I was terribly fatigued BEFORE this. Now, having to bathe him, keep him comfortable, give meds, and sleep on the couch as he has to be in his recliner to sleep I can't even think straight. I get to have Emily's help until the 26th and am TRULY thankful. After that I have to drive him to appointments in a rather big city which terrifies me. I have had increasing chest pain myself but we need to get James back on his feet right now. I will trust in the Lord.

Thank you for your prayers!

Ade, I wondered what happened to you as you had just disappeared. I am so sorry to hear about James but very thankful you had this neighbor that realized what was going on. Glad your son could drive you to the hospital so fast.

How is James doing now? I am sure you must feel like you have been wrung through the ringer at this point. I am glad you have Emily there to help out. That is surely a blessing during times like this.

We will be praying for James and for you to get through this tough time. Le us know how things are going when you are up to it.


Lita, I am glad you got to have a little get away to Napa. Sounds wonderful. I am so glad you are feeling up to working on another novel. You go girl!

Ade,

I am getting email notifications again and just read your post.

So sorry about your husband, but praising the Lord for putting that neighbor there at that time, your son's ability to get you to hospital, and everything else. I firmly believe there are no coincidences with the Lord.

I have been on both sides patient and caretaker and I know being caretaker is the hardest......so take care of youself as well.

Faith,

Sciatica and a sinus infection all at the same time. God be with you. I've had both but not at the same time. I use a tens unit when I start with sciatica. It usually stops it right away.

Nancy,

Praying for complete rapid healing of your back! Enough already! Who would have ever believed it would be this long. I agree with whoever said to really take it easy!!! I know you would rather be out taking pictures.

All of you dear ladies....prayers for all your issues. Lean hard on the Lord! I used to say I couldn't make it a day without the Lord....nowdays I say seconds and minutes.

No matter what the enemy shall throw at all of us who know the Lord WE WILL NOT BE SHAKEN!!!!!!

Faith, I had to have an ultrasound the day before my surgery because they thought I had a blot clot in my leg but I didn't. I have still been having some issues. I had muscle therapy for years and know lots of tricks which help me a great deal now at home. I use a tennis ball and I do this in bed so it is not so forceful. I lay the tennis ball under my rear end. (don't know how to gracefully say this). When I find a really sore spot then roll back and forth over it. It is a type of trigger point therapy which in therapy the therapist would do with their elbow. It works amazing results. I understand that sciatica is a nerve issue but you may be surprised if maybe there is a muscle issue going on as well.

Joanne, glad to see you posting. You know I am praying for you and your family.

I am doing better and feeling better. I think maybe this is the end of the cyst saga. PTL. Thank you all for your prayers.

Following this thread. New here! It's been helpful reading other's questions and journeys. I, too, love the Lord and rely on Him in all things, especially now in this event in my life! I have an amazing church who supports and loves me, but it's nice to converse with others who are going through similar trials.

My series of events as follows:

5/16/2017--annual screening mammogram

5/18/17--diagnostic MGM and ultrasound for left breast lesion/mass

5/22/17--met with breast specialist/surgeon

5/26/17--core biopsy

6/5/17 consult with surgeon due to positive cancer dx (ILC) recommend lumpectomy/lymph node biopsy followed by radiation

6/8/17 MRI of breast--no lymph node issues ID'd and no cancer detected in Right breast

6/28/17 lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy

7/28/17 will be my first meeting with oncologist at a local cancer center. Time seems to crawl while you wait! I'm sure they'll recommend chemo.

Almer, I am glad you found our thread. I am sorry for what you are going through. We have all been there and can sympathize with you especially about the waiting. I think that may be the hardest part of not knowing what your treatments will be. I know for myself and others that I have heard say this is that once you have a treatment plan in place some of the anxiety is lifted just knowing what you will face. I think we go into a sort of battle mode and with the strength that the Lord gives us we can face what will come. We will pray for you and feel free to post as often as you like. We have powerful prayer warriors here and some that may not post but do read and pray. I have added you to my prayer list. You will get through this!!!!!

Thanks for your prayers today. I whacked out almost an entire chapter.

I knew a few years ago when I started the third book in my "trilogy" that the protagonist's mother would get SOME form of cancer. I didn't know which one at the time, but I sure do now. The character's experience will somewhat mirror my own, with a bit of poetic license. (Write what you KNOW, as they say.) She also has to go thru this in the late 70s. I had to do quite a bit of research on C Tx of that era. Absolute savagery: slash, burn, poison, and if you were St 4, they pretty much told you to get your affairs in order pronto. Her MO is something of a maverick. He puts the patient's needs and comfort first. The story is being told from the daughter's perspective, and I will use my own experience (my mom actually died in the 70s from soft tissue sarcoma) as well as my dd's.

Satan will not be victorious. He has kept me from writing for so long. The Lord is my strength, and He will get the glory when this book is done. My dd may have to do the final editing and get it to the publisher, but I'm not thinking that far ahead.

One day at a time...

Hello dear ladies,

Although I have not posted here for awhile, I do read all your messages and pray that God meets all needs and fills your hearts with His peace.

This last week was somewhat problematic. Chemo has really messed up my bone marrow and clotting factors, and I ended up in the ER last Thursday night with a DVT in my calf. My doctor has since placed me on heparin and warfarin for the duration of my treatments. On a more positive note, my last DD AC is less than 2 weeks out. I will move on to Taxol in August.

Almer, amen to what you said. God can do anything despite what the doctors say. There has been a new person in the last couple months that mentioned some of those same things that you did like the extra nodal extension. Unfortunately I don't think this is someone that has posted alot so I can't remember who mentioned that. You said very strong and positive so that is a great way to approach this challenge.

Almer, I had extranodal and had all the nodes under my arm removed after chemo rather than before due to a mistake in reading my biopsy report. God worked it out for good however because while there were cancer cells in many of the nodes, they were all dead from the chemo. This gave me great encouragement since I figured if the cells in the nodes were dead than the ones anywhere in the rest of my body were dead as well. One day at a time, you will get through this.

I am praying for all of you dear brave ladies of faith!

While I did some church secretarial work this morning James & daughter Emily did 5 laps around the sanctuary - his first outing besides a doctor trip. The Lord is good.

Blessings,
