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.

Ladies,

My husband's colonoscopy was good, no polyps or anything. He does however have some irritation in his esophagus. The doctor thinks it could be from Silent GERD and he will be taking Prevacid for a while. I'm praising the Lord that the colonoscopy was good and the irritation according to the doctor is mild, however they did a biopsy and we will hear from that in a few days. The doctor said he wanted to see if the irritation is from a bacteria. I'm not real sure what that means.

My arm is not much better at all. I have been a little sick from the antibiotic and we'll see the doctor again Thursday unless I spike a fever and my arm gets worse which can happen at any time with cellulitis.

Jean, I pray that your husband's scope turns out well.

Nancy, I'm wondering why the doctor doesn't go ahead and do an MRI of your nose if he thinks it might be warranted later?

I'm very tired from our day and the cellulitis and the side effects of the antibiotic.

Thank God our daughter took off work 3 hours and drove us home. I really was not feeling up to it.

God bless you all and most of all give you peace.

Joanne

Praying for all of you.

Please pray for me too, as I'm having "chemo swelling" in my feet, ankles, and calves, and I now have to wear those Jobst support stockings. They aren't that bad, but the right stocking drives the neuropathy in my right big toe CRAZY. I can barely walk on that foot. When I got home from my chemo infusion today, I took the stocking off, and my toe felt a lot better, but then the swelling started up again.

I only eat 2 meals a day, but I've gained 3-5 lbs in the last couple weeks, and the onco nurses say it b'cuz of the chemo swelling/edema. I'm really watching my sodium and I've tried to cut out dessert in the evenings (which is one of the few things I look forward to on this horrible highway to hell).

My teeth hurt, and I went to the dentist. He didn't find any cavities....he said the sensitivity and pain are b'cuz of the chemo. Yaaaay! Sensodine toothpaste doesn't really help.

Been kind of sad b'cuz of the loss of Anthony Bourdain, and b'cuz the neighbors cut down two trees that provided shade and beauty to the neighborhood. I have to wear one of those eye masks to sleep now b'cuz the sun is so bright (even with the shade closed) that it wakes me up early in the morning.

Once again, my prayers to those who are suffering even more than I am.

Jo, thankful for the good report for your DH.

Lita, praying for relief from the swelling, and continued prayers for all you are going through. I also think my teeth pain is a medication side effect. You help keep me strong!

Jean, I am praying for a good report from your DH biopsy.

Nancy, praying that you begin to feel better and for a quick resolution to your nose issue. I know we all just want to feel better and have a day with no fatigue, nausea, pain, and fear!

I have had terrible stomach pain for the past 2 days, but because of all of the company and birthday celebrations I did not call my Dr. I have a history of IBS and I think it is just a surge of inflammation. I have not had a fever, no diarrhea and am feeling slightly better tonight so I am hoping it is resolving itself. I will see how I feel in the morning. I told my MO last week I felt worse than 6 months ago, but she wants me to stay the course since my blood holds up well and my results are good. There are days I just want to complain...thanks for being here!

Blessings,
Chris

Prayying for Jo, Lita, Nancy, Chris. I spoke to my husband's doctor today and he said basically the same thing that Jo's doctor said. He's checking for bacteria and other possible causes of inflamation. I asked him about the possibility of cancer from the biopsy and he said that wasn't what he was checking for. His blood sugars have been out of contril lately, possibly due to stress from some serious financial problems including forclosure on some of our childrens houses! In a more positive note, my Hep C treatment is,working. No detectable vieus on my blood test. Six weeks to go! Thank you Jesus for all you give me including the challenges. Love, Jean

Dear sisters,

I will have to check in later. I am praying and reading as you post. Lisa, love your little dog. Chris, we all need to vent and that is normal and human. I saw a new primary doctor yesterday who did not agree with the possible scary diagnosis my ENT gave me on Monday. My pcp would like for me to do a sleep study and I basically said okay but not now.

Ade, I am praying against fear for you and frustration regarding James. I thought your apts were on Tues. but the Lord honors our prayers even when we goof.

Lita, you are always in my prayers. I just had a tree cut down by my bedroom window and I can so identify with that aggravation of the sun coming in where it didn't before and waking you up. Hang in there. You are a fighter and have fought the good fight when you thought all was lost a year ago.

Jean, continued prayers for you and DH.

Debbie, how are you doing?

Joanne, I know you are seeing your dr again today. I am still praying you won't be telling us you are in the hospital.

I am doing much better than Monday when I thought I could be gone in two years. I would still appreciate your prayers as I just have felt totally washed out for a long time.

Know I am praying.

Love,

Nancy

Like as a piece of tapestry

Rewards the worker for his care,
Proving his skills and patience rare.

That's an awesome poem, Ade..and exactly what i needed to read since I just read a comment that someone wrote saying that people have cancer because of harboring unforgiveness/bitterness in their hearts. I was so mad at that comment. Were you told you have bone mets, Ade? I am praying this is not the case..In Jesus' Holy name!~Amen~

I bought two throw pillow cases for my sofa yesterday..I love the saying on them:

They were really cheap at the dollar store for just $4 each.

Oliver is doing well with his training. I had to put him in his crate yesterday while I had my appointment and then this morning while I was gone to bible study for two hours..He's very happy to see me when I get home!

Nancy, that scripture is a promise that we can truly stand on!

Nancy,

Praise the Lord for your new PCP....I feel he is right. I can't imagine you would go back to that ENT. I would be looking for another one. Praying for you......and 3 members of our family have sleep apnea ..... and thinking back they all had about the same symptoms as you have talked about. They all feel better with their C-Pap. Maybe you should go ahead and do it. You know you can do it at home now. You do not have to go to a lab......so you would not have ro leave Cammie alone over night.

Ade...praying for a benign bone scan. I understand the anxiety. Have they considered tension or cluster headaches for James? Also a friend of mine had similar symptoms and it turned out to be terribly imbedded sinus infection that required surgery. She is fine now.

Well, I am not in the hospital but still have no answers. My dr is one of the best. I've been aggravated with him a few times.....but he was honest and said, "I don't know what to do with you. It looks like cellulitis but does not act like cellulitis."

As soon as he can get me in ( and I expect it to be very soon) I will see an infectious disease dr. My dr says they have more knowledge about antibiotics and would be able to figure out what I can take. Cipro has always taken care of cellulitis for me before, but 10 days did nothing, 7 days of Clindamycin did nearly nothing besides almost putting me down for the count. The area is smaller but still just as red in the center.

I am to watch it close and call if it gets worse....also call if it resolves on its own......(which we doubt will happen) not over use it, and elevate.

Prayers for all.....and peace in all our storms.

Joanne

I am having trouble with my internet. I posted a few hours ago and something was wrong with my router. I resetted it and hopefully will not lose this again as I had a long post.

Ade, you have been on my mind all day. I pray that you can immerse yourself in the truth of that poem you posted. The poem speaks truth. We are praying for you and James.

Lisa, I also believe your pillow speaks truth as well! The post that made you so upset I totally do not believe what they posted. Can cancer be caused by bitterness and unforgiveness.............perhaps...........but other factors such as diet, unavoidable toxins in our environment and heredity can all contribute as well. So in my humble opinion that blanket statement was way off the mark.

Debbie, I am praying for you as you go through more tests.

Joanne, I am glad your doctor didn't put you in the hospital. I hope you can get in to see this infectious disease person and as you know I have had good results after one of my doctors consulted with one. I hope the same will be true of you too. I have had an inhome sleep apnea testing kit many years ago and it showed nothing. It was certainly not high tech so who knows. This ENT I saw as I look back was probably only doing what he thought was the right thing in pursuing this nose ulcer thing. Every doctor who has seen it freaks out. If I have to have thryoid surgery in the future this doctor will probably be the one to do it so I am a little hesitant about canceling our six month apt. I am grateful that this new pcp put my mind more at ease.

Well, I sure hope this post goes through because I won't be doing it again tonight.

I have a sewer guy coming early tomorrow and hopefully he will be able to mark where the sewer line is for my next contractor to lift the porch up and hopefully not find anything serious.

My yard is coming together. I have been planting and have lots of container baskets. I planted some petunias in the ground and if the rabbits eat them you will hear me screaming clear across the country!!! Now that this tree came down hopefully this flower bed with have enough sun to grow petunias.

I am praying for you dear sisters.

Nancy

Lita and G, Happy Anniversary! You look so much in love!!!

Funny story, I had a lady try to sell me a long hair piece (not wig) at the fair yesterday. I just laughed and tipped my hat. My hair is way too thin to even grow it long. Maybe she won't be so aggressive anymore. I have spent all day today trying to recover from the fair, but it was so worth it just to watch the sparkle in my granddaughter's eyes. She cries because she is not tall enough to ride the big roller coasters yet. She does love the ones her size!

I miss seeing the deer walk through my place in Colorado, so I sent a picture of my granddaughter instead.

Happy Anniversary, Lita and G!!

Love the deer pic, Ade.. He looks like he's saying "thank you" looking up at you that way!

Gorgeous Granddaughter, Intolight! I wish I could have seen the look on that lady when you tipped your hat..I cannot stand it when salespeople are so pushy and aggressive.

Nancy, I believe we will see the world of heaven that way (like a child)..but, one thing I've noticed being sick and getting older, is the weaker I become, the more of my inner child comes out to play, lol..I enjoy doing the things I did as a child like drawing and putting stickers on cards and letters before sending them off in the mail..and my imagination is very much alive whenever I try to think of what it is like to see God and live there with him and the angels someday!

Ade, praying for you tests. Praying for peace for you.

Joanne, praying for answers for you. The best case scenario would be this swelling will go down naturally without having to endure anymore meds that make you sick.

This is a version of the what the Lord spoke to me when I realized I probably had cancer. I have found Him completely faithful during these last four plus years. I have said this before but He is sometimes excrutiatingly slow in our minds but always on time...........His time.

Love,

Nancy

Nancy..Did you know that scripture is where I got my screen name/profile name from?

Here's a few blessings in my yard today..

This bucket is filled with a combo of wild things growing around the yard and some store bought flowers:

Perennial and annuals (Salvia) mixed..Just noticed I need to fill the hummingbird feeder, lol

My roses..Can't remember how old these are, but more than a decade and a half. This is the best bloom ever!

Patio tomatoes..Our land is too rocky/rooty to plant veggies on.(too many trees)

Lisa, very pretty. Your tomatoes are really coming along. Your roses are doing great. In fact today my rosebushes are being taken out as the die back from the past winters finally took it's toll. Mine were about 10 years old as well. I am just not up to planting five rose bushes so I am having the local nursery plant a tree and plant five rose bushes for me. I used to be able to do that stuff but my fatigue has been too much now. I did plant one bush recently and it was about too much for me.

When my yard is finished I will have to post some pics too. Mine is still a work in progress. I do lots of containers. I used to plant most of them myself but I don't do that anymore. I am waiting on a new cascading fountain to come today. I love fountains and I have one in my backyard and a solar cascading one in my front yard that was getting really worn.

Yes, I can see how your user name is built on that scripture. It is a great scripture to stand on for sure.

Thanks for sharing your pics.

There is a beautiful purple Clematis near the Y that I go to swim. I am hoping to get back there with my camera and take some pics while it is at it's peak.

Have a great day.

Hello ladies 🤗

I'm so glad I found this thread. The Lord has certainly been my refuge during this trial. I am expecting a phone call by tomorrow regarding my surgery date. It's been very surreal feeling until now. I feel like the reality is starting to hit me now.
