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.

Hershey, I am so glad to hear about your Mom joining the baking club and enjoying it. That is great. My Mom loved to play Bingo but would not feel comfortable playing without me so I would try to make a point to join her so she could be out with people. Having that connection with others is so important in the senior facilities. Actually having that connection is important for all of us and that is why this thread is so special.

Chris I bet your pancakes and bacon were yummy. I never eat pancakes except once in a blue moon and I have to eat gluten free pancakes at restaurants but I haven't been inside a restaurant since the pandemic hit. I have been so hungry for pancakes for weeks which is strange. I guess I'll have to live vicariously through yours for now. I have been praying that you will not have bad side effects from your new chemo pill. I will continue to pray specifically for that.

Carol, I'm glad you got your flu and booster shot. Your MO will be so touched by you making a baby blanket for her little baby. Our oncologists are worth their weight in gold for sure and having a baby in NICU has got to be so difficult for her. She will be blessed.


If I may share my most joyful time in the summers it is when I am visiting the Butterfly House. I found out they had an addition of a several new species and I was thrilled. Some they mentioned I just had to go for the last time. I usually can't take the heat unless it is in the 70's but on Friday it was very hot but I didn't care. I wanted to see the Blue Morphos so badly. Chris, I don't have a program that makes them display as yours does but I will show you a few. I hope this brightens your day as much as they did mine. God's unbelievable creation is so evident in seeing all of the varieties of butterflies and how beautiful and unique they are.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love,

Nancy

Thank you Chris. I had to laugh because as I was going through my pics on my computer I knew I didn't have any really good pics of the Blue Morpho with it's blue wings opened up and I had a surprise. I was taking some pics of their charts so I could ID some of their newer species and guess who photo bombed my photo. A Blue Morpho. It was blurry but it still made me smile. I had a Malachite that got very friendly with me and wouldn't leave my arm. I finally took my finger and it stayed on my finger and I pulled out my camera phone and took its pic on my finger but I am not very good with two hands on my camera phone let alone one so it was also blurry. I can't wait until next year when this place opens up again.

Have a good rest of your night.

Hi beautiful ladies!!!

I need some prayers.

My daughter and her husband are having some marriage issues. I know life is hard and I believe they can work it out. But he is frustrated because of his job and then comes home and feels overwhelmed with two small kids. He's just snappy and so much daughter feels she is the problem which really isn't the case. They have talked about it and he apologizes but then tends to do it again. He is a good Christian man. I think they both just need to talk calmly about what's going on. Just please pray.

Please pray for my MIL. She has stage 4 colon cancer. It's just so hard for my sweet hubby dealing with his momma and me with cancer.

Pray for my mother. She has some back issues and she is 81. Her leg is kind of numb and makes her unsteady when she walks. They have steps in their home. Which scares me. But I can't get them to sale it. There are some nice patio homes in our town. They could move there. But I can't get them to sale.

I know this is long tonight. I have been battling depression lately. I'm sure it's all about my diagnosis. But I really don't want to take anything for it. But I want to get out of my head a little and feel more happy too.

Thank you all for allowing me to just vent. I have to have somewhere to let it all out.

Love you all

Shannon

Esther, let me join the others in congratulations for finishing your radiation. I pray there will be no residual affects and that everything is clean and you are feeling good.

Shannon, I am praying for your mother, MIL, and your DD and family. There is no surprise that with this burden you have some depression and I pray God relieves you of that.

Jean, I am sorry to hear you are battling Covid but am thankful it is mild thanks to the vaccination. That is why we do it!

I am still doing pretty well on my new medicine though I am struggling to find a routine. I struggle with not sleeping and my body not being regulated, but that is mild and I gladly accept it. I have more energy than I have had in awhile and have been taking advantage of it by cleaning out drawers and closets, etc. I had put this off for some time but the impending termite tenting has lit a fire under me... I am not required to do it, but it is for my own peace of mind. I am a proactive person and we are also eating down any surplus food in our pantry and freezer. That is a good thing too and the menu is beginning to get creative...! I am also starting on my Christmas list as I have no idea how I will feel in two months. Part of me just wants to relax and let life come, but that is not me.

Take care dear friends.

Good Friday morning.

It has been a wild time the last few days. My internet was out but it was definitely the ISP as they notified us. My bank which is only a few blocks away from my house was robbed and the robber ran away on foot and our neighborhood was notified to call the police if we saw him. One of our high schools the same day as this other stuff could not go to school because of a bomb threat. That was one day. Then I have had car trouble and currently without my car. I knew the starter was going out but the dealer techs had to hear it for themselves so they kept my car overnight after I waited for quite a while. I have a dentist apt out of town today and the dealer is going to pick me up and take me back to get my car which thankfully didn't start for them this morning so they could hear the screeching noise and they are installing a new starter as I type. Thankfully this is still under the new car warranty so I am really grateful for that as this would have been a chunk of money for sure.

I have been able to read all of the posts and have been praying but don't have time to post too much now.

Shannon, Jean, Chris praying for you.

Esther, I imagine you have a ton on your plate at this point. I remember having many confusing emotions when I finished rads. Praying for you as well.

Got to run. I am praying.

Love,

Nancy

Shannon, I am praying for your daughter and her marriage. Praying for your MIL. I am sure this is difficult for her and your husband and you. Praying for your Mom as she needs to be very careful not to fall. Praying for your depression. It is normal and as we deal with this disease it sometimes turns out to be more handling emotions than the physical part. When you get through your treatments and your hair starts growing back in things will start to look up for you I believe.

Jean, I am sure you will be glad to get out of quarantine on Monday. I am glad you only had a mild case of Covid.

Chris, you sound like you are doing pretty well at this point. I am so glad to hear that. Hopefully once your body gets used to this med you will have better sleep. Good for you for all the cleaning and creative cooking in prep for your termite tenting.

I am a bit hesitant to share this but I do feel led to do so. At the dentist today I had my hygienist who I have had for many years. She is a Christian, single for many years with no children. She is hilarious and usually we would end up laughing till we both were crying during my cleaning. Today she was very subdued and I wondered what was going on. She eventually told me what had happened. In August her sister was murdered by a neighbor woman who she knew well. This sister has a 6yr old daughter and no Dad on the scene. So J (I will call her) is in the process of adopting this child. She is in her late 40's or early 50's. She is a very, very strong woman who is now really admitting that she is having a hard time being sure the little girl is doing okay, dealing with lawyers, detectives and her own grief. She said when do I get to cry and when do I find time for my grief. I didn't realize she lives in my same town as my dentist is quite a bit out of town. I told her about my grief class at my church and I told her I would email the teacher and see if it would be okay for her to come to our class if she wanted to. So she gave me her info and I emailed the teacher and she said she is most welcome to come which I figured she would say that after hearing her story. So we texted tonight quite a bit and she said she is really going to try hard to come on Sunday. J is used to being the tower of strength for everyone around her and now she needs to take care of herself so she will be able to raise this daughter. She is in the process of trying to adopt her now and all of a sudden the Dad wants to have a part in her life where he has been totally absent in the past. So my prayer is that God would come into their lives in a mighty way and help them to find the path to healing in a very difficult situation.

Thank you for your prayers in advance.

Have a great weekend dear sisters.

Love,

Nancy

Next week my DD and I will be travelling to Los Angeles to visit my half family (still don't know what to call them...) My two sisters will be there, and I will meet my niece and my uncle who is my dad's brother. Pray I will still feel well.

Blessings on you all. Chris

Nancy, I am so sorry to hear what your hygienist is going through. We had a sort of similar experience. My husband's sister was murdered by her boyfriend. Her daughter was in the house at the time. The daughter went to live with her father and he turned out to be a good dad. My husband's other siblings have never quite recovered from that, but the daughter is now grown and is a mom herself.

I will lift your friend up in prayer. I can't imagine the pain she is in and burden she has to carry. I now have the words to the song, "Come to Jesus" in my head. I'll post the link and even though it makes me cry, it's worth listening to.

Chris, thank you for your prayers for my hygienist and daughter. I know J will appreciate that. I'll be praying for a wonderful time with your new family. Praying your energy levels will continue to be good.

Carol, what a horrible thing your husband's sister and family had to go through. I am glad to hear that the little girl is now a Mom herself. I can't imagine ever recovering from that type of trauma but I hope she is doing well. Thank you for posting that song. I love that song and I haven't heard it in a very long time. I think I saw Chris Rice in concert many years ago. That is a powerful song with healing lyrics. Thank you for your prayers for J as well. I hope you are doing well.

Shannon, it sounds like you are doing well. I know I can have one of the worst days ever and then the next morning I wake up and it is a new day full of possibilities and it is as if the bad day didn't even happen. I pray that you will have many more of those good days coming. Thank you for your prayers for J as well.

GB, how did your first Taxol treatment on Thursday go? I hope this new course of treatments is much more tolerable than your AC treatments were.

Faith, I continue to pray for you. Did you ever get to exchange the dress or have it altered. I am praying that when you go to the wedding it will be a wonderful time and you can relax and enjoy it. BTW I got an appointment at Walgreens on S. Washington and 87th for my Pfizer booster shot. They take walk ins as well I think.

Have a great weekend dear sisters.

Wheatfields, maybe we might have crossed paths when you were in Naperville. What if I was at that wedding too. You never know. I am glad you are feeling encouragement and caring here. When Spar (I think) started this thread many years ago I wonder if she realized it would still be active all of these years later. As they say it takes a village for it to stay alive. I hope you are doing well.

Love,

Nancy

I'm still here, and ok (I guess). I've developed pretty painful muscle pain from the Taxol. Kind of puts a damper on things. Still hiding at work too. I'm so afraid I'm going to catch something at work, but the oncologist maintains she's ok with me working. I would just go out if it didn't mean leave of absence plus insurance via COBRA--for us COBRA would be 2K a month (with no paycheck once I exhaust my sick leave). I have enough FMLA left to continue partial leave, but not to take me the rest of the way through chemo. I haven't ruled out leave of absence though. But it's a very tough decision.

At least my nurse manager is ok with me hiding. I wish she'd be better at enforcing the mask policy though.

GB, it's so tough balancing leave, insurance, and one's health. I pray that you and your employer find a workable, agreeable solution.
