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.

update

Saw dr today. Cellulitis no better.

Changed antibiotic to Clindamycin 300 3x a day for a week and 2 Advil a day for inflammation.

Call immediately if c-dif rears it's ugly head as c-dif is a side effect. (I've already done 10 days of cipro)

See dr June 14 and if it is not completely resolved sending me to an infectious disease dr.

Not what I wanted to hear. Trusting..and watching to see what God is doing..because I know there is a reason.

Praying all your tests, dr appts, issues all turn out well.

Not feeling well right now. I won't be trying to post for a while......have to get over this. My husband is having a proceedure Tuesday and I MUST BE THERE!

God bless you all.

Praying for you Joanne and for DH as he goes through his tests. Praying you will get results from the new AB and that DH will get some answers.

Ade, praying for you and James.

GM, I love that song as well. That song was written in a very hard time as Laura's DH was having a medical crisis so it comes from a point that we can all relate to.

Debbie, praying for you.

Teka, praying you are enjoying some nice spring weather in the north country.

Lita, praying for you always.

Lisa and Chris and Faith praying that all of you are doing well. Chris, prayers for strength as you take care of your almost 3yr old granddaughter as her mother is away.

Lord, I pray for all of the dear sisters on this thread. Many are dealing with such storms in their lives and I pray that you would calm their hearts as the storm rages. I know many times you allow those storms to continue to strengthen our faith and develop our faith muscles. Growing is never a pleasant experience but as you prepare our hearts for glory we trust in you to complete that which you have begun in each of us who call ourselves yours. Give each dear sister what she needs this day to deal with all of the challenges, disappointments, fears and anxiety that may overwhelm us. Give us complete trust that you have only good for us even though our human eyes can't see the big picture that you have for us.

Love,

Nancy

Two more months and I am off to Rwanda for my missions trip. Found out there will be lots of traveling between cities/villages. It looks like it will be one day of vbs and most of the children we will see are under 4th grade level, which means they haven't learned English yet. It changes alot as far as the Americanized VBS - We decided to throw most of the curriculum out - make a little skit to go along with the Daniel and Babylon story, learn a few songs in KInyarwanda that they would be comfortable singing and I still haven't decided which craft to do. The rest of the time there is building trust by talking and visiting. We all get to go to the neighborhoods that our sponsored children live and when it is your sponsored child, you get personal time with them. I am so blessed to be able to share God's love and learn from another culture.

Oh Jo - Cellulitis is not fun... been there - and been praying that the doctors find the correct me for you. - (I think that is one of my big concerns on this trip I'm taking. I do have antibiotics to take with me. )

May the Lord bless you all today - Imagine sitting on my porch swing and taking a moment to thank God for all the blessings He has provided us.

Hi all. Made it through four days with my almost 3-year old DGD while her momma was away, but thankful it was not another hour. She did pretty well although she woke up 3 times the last night. After one day break, today was BDay party day. Ran into my aunt and 2 cousins accidentally in the grocery store last night--they drove out from AZ to surprise me at the BDay party but I saw them in the same line I was in so ruined their surprise. But it was so special and actually gave us extra time together. I am exhausted from today's party at the park and then home with unexpected family. But wouldn't have it any other way!

Had my 3-month MO appt during this week and all news is good. We will stay the course as long as I respond so well and my blood remains steady. I praise God for sending me so many blessings this week.

Chris, that is great news on your check up. So glad you had some surprise family in and that you made it through the days of watching your grand daughter and made it through the Bday party. Celebrating your great news.

I had a surprise ENT apt today as I have been on a wait list after my primary doctor was concerned about my ear and wanted me to see a specialist. I have some hearing loss due to noise. I don't have anything other than scar tissue on my eardrum so that was good news. I was a band director my whole career so that probably explains the hearing loss. The upsetting thing is I was given a possible very serious diagnosis regarding this chronic bleeding ulcer I have had in my nose since I was a child. I have to see this doctor in six months after using this nose spray and then possible MRI and further testing. I am not even going to say what he said because I don't want to get more upset than I already am.


I will briefly explain my two day drama this past weekend. We had terrible thunderstorms in the night on Friday and Saturday. Saturday morning I noticed a pretty large branch had fallen off a tree on my parkway which is a city tree but on the side of my house. I was outside to plant a hydrangea bush and I heard all of this commotion. I heard a little bird peeping incessantly and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. This is the first thing I noticed. There are two birds there if you look closely.

I still kept hearing this incessant peeping and then I noticed this.(pic below)


The above pic is two female Downy woodpeckers and the male Downy was on the ground scared to death. I picked up the bird and it seemed to be comforted. Long story short my neighbor came over and spotted me on my ladder that can go quite high and I put the little guy back in with the other two. The branch on the ground had a perfect hole where the parents had drilled and their nest was in the tree branch that fell to the ground.

The next day after another bad night of storms I saw one of the birds still in the broken branch when I got home from church. That evening as I was looking out at my kitchen window I saw a baby on the curb almost in the street. I ran outside and picked this little one up. It was one of the females. The other female was on the trunk of the tree. This poor little thing I tried to put on the ground and it didn't like that and crawled up my pant leg. I put it on the trunk near the other female. The little guy I put in the nest the day before was no where to be seen. I am hoping it flew away but I will never know. Today I didn't see the parents or any of the little ones so I am hoping there is a happy ending to their story.

It was a treat holding those baby birds but I sure hate to see this result when storms hit hard.

I would appreciate your prayers. I have just not felt good for a long time and I am concerned. I just feel washed most of the time and it is an effort to do anything.

Take care dear sisters. Keep Joanne and her DH in your prayers.

Love,

Nancy

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Love,

Nancy

Already have appt w/infectious disease dr Monday at 9 AM. My dr moved fast! But he always does. He said he would call personally if the nurse could not get me in.

Lisa,

If bitterness and hatred caused cancer....there would be a lot more people with cancer. Just listen to the news!
