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. Lets help make each other's life better

LOL, JO, you crack me up!

Update on my daughter's friend, Allie.  So they were going to specialists...ended up at NYU with the head of seizure department.  She either has a cluster of brain cells which were from birth that are now causing seizures (some people have them and it never bothers them, some people have them and comes out in birth or sometime later, like now for Allie).  Depending on the kind of seizure, she may or may not be able to be treated my medicine.


she has a brain tumor.  She is wearing a 3-day EEG monitor, and a whole bunch of other things.  But if it's a tumor, the only way they will know is to recheck in 3 months.

Cake so glad they are getting Allie checked out some more and not just wait and see.  Am going to check out the sites you posted and cake, JO cracks me up real often.

Treak, so loved your story of coming back to the Lord.  God is so good.  I am praying for wisdom in your decision also.

JO, soon as I post this I am gonna listen to your music.

I think the new craft that I am gonna try is crewel embroidery.  we will see how it goes.  gonna watch dancing with the stars tonight.

I can't believe it was snowing yesterday and today I can sit on the deck without a jacket.  The weather is crazy.  I am also kind of scared of this healthcare bill that passed. 

I can picture carol and rita playing golf today if it has warmed up where they are like it has here.

Everyone have a great evening.  Sending hugs to everyone. Lets help make each other's life better

Cake...thanks for the update. Allie is in my prayers.

Treak...welcome and thanks for the story. It shows that with HIM all things are possible.  Let us know what happens at your appointment.  I pray He gives you the wisdom you need.

I also didn't know a lot about breast cancer until I had it (actaully I knew almost nothing)....I think the only advantage I had being a nurse is that I knew how to look stuff up.  Even though I was in Korea when I was diagnosised I had a great surgeon on base (I did not have to go downtown).  He really went the "extra mile". 

Hope eveyone has a great night.

Spar2 - stay warm

For all of you dear ladies who have prayed for my niece, Allison, I want to report she had the bi lat mastectomy tonight and there was no node involvement.  She had expanders placed in and is doing very well.  God is sooo good.

Hi Treak,

It's nice to meet you.  I think anyone here would say -- you write as much as you need too -- a little or a lot, we will get through it together.  We are never alone -- even when we think we might be.  Isn't it wonderful especially when you have grown confused and weary -- worried in a hundred ways to know you are not alone and help is just a wish and a prayer away.  God Bless.

Healing hugs,


Spar...hope you get better soon.  By the way....I loved the kitty picture you left for me.  Fantastic.

Barbe -- loved those helmets with the sentiments.  Wish no one would get on a motorcycle without a helmet. 

Hope you all have a great night.  Had a long day so I'm into my jammies and the recliner. See you all tomorrow some time,


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-

Spar, I LOVE crewel embroidery! What a glorious craft to do! You will get a lot of joy in creating your art. I used to use a mad-house of colour and varigated threads and such. It will be so much fun.

When I was hospitalized for my bilat mast I had checked "religious" on a sheet somewhere so a priest showed up in my room. Imagine his surprise when I asked for a prayer of "Thanks"! I wanted him to helpl me thank God for getting me through the surgery. Last year in July, 8 months later, I was back in the hospital with a kidney defect. He came into my room because he recognized my name on an admit list! That time I asked him to help me pray for pain relief. I really needed the extra help!

I sometimes feel guilty asking for help from God because He is so busy everywhere, but then I realize that by asking Him, that lets Him know I am still with Him.

Barbe, like JO, I believe nothing is too small or too big to ask our Lord.  He is almighty.  Hope everyone is having a good day.  I stayed up too late reading last night and ended up sleeping too late so had lunch instead of breakfast.  DH took the dogs to the vet for their last shots and worming, exam, and toe nails clipped.  They are  now running around on the deck like they are happy as can be.  It is warm enough here today to leave the doors and windows open.  Love this kind of weather. 

Mary, praise God that Allyson had no node involvement, that is so wonderful

Jackie glad you like the kitty pictures.  I am gonna meet you one way or the other and walk a day in your shoes. LOL

Cake still praying for Allie, hoping it is something that can be treated.

When my son was 16 and got his first car I bought him a car magnet that said never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly and he has kept that all these years and put it in every single automobile he  has ever owned and he is in his late 30's now.  You guys made me remember when you were talking about it earlier.

Hope everyone has a God blessed day. Lets help make each other's life better
