As I go through this forced path I have been thrown down, I have come to realize the love I have always had for my husband was strong. He is amazing and I love him with my very soul and entire heart. Never would I ever imagine the thought of dying and him being alone. Then the worst part hit me!! I can't seem to shake the horrible sorrow of thinking of another woman taking my place in his life and his heart, and if I Am honest his bed. He is my best friend and the love of my life, I would never need another for any reason. He makes my life complete, and then this happens. How do I process that I most likely won't be the one growing old on the porch that we have talked about, how do I process, someone else sitting in that chair? I hate this trajectory path I've been spun onto, and everyday I feel grief and deep sorrow. How do I live everyday knowing in the back of my mind, I feel like a place holder, for another woman who will be stepping into my life when I die of this horrible disease, more sooner than later. Why would I even want to take any medicines or treatments, when the answer is pretty obviously in front of my face.? Why do we fight so hard for something we cannot control ? Why do we hurt so badly thinking about letting go, or giving up? It's a four letter word that holds so much power. That word is LOVE..... If you have ever felt this way. Share with me, because I understand, I feel this way everyday. I also don't know what to do with the sadness of loss or how to process the process of dying. However slow or fast it may be. Please share your love stories with me, how did you meet? How long together? I want to know your stories, everyone has their person. Everyone loves.....tell me about your family, your friends, your life too, as if this was your living room. ♥️

I've been on my self imposed bco break for the weekend but popping back in as I had a pm from someone ;)

Tany, yes, I'm a zumbaholic! Been doing it for years now. I've been working out to Marlon Alves on YouTube. If I keep going at this pace might be able to join one of my old instructors' zoom live classes in Feb.

Good luck with scans tangandchris.

I scan on Thursday night at 7pm.

I guess I'm lucky though as I never wait for appointments! Haven't had a delay ever at my cancer center for chemo or MO visit. Bloodwork yes....but now they're by appointment too and also very fast.

I'm off to walk with dh and Olive. We were supposed to get snow but it's just cold rain. Oh well

Hugs everyone

So hubs had his cardio version on Wednesday and last nite slipped back into afib. Next step will be to put him on a new rx but that will require a hospital stay to monitor how he does. But more concerning is the fact that he has had swelling and severe pain in left calf for 6 weeks. No evidence of blood clot, but ultrasound and xray revealed air bubbles behind his knee, which radiologist cited as cellulitis. Cellulitis usually presents as skin infection and he has no cuts or scrapes on his leg. So I checked Dr Google, air bubbles can also be gangrene😳. Either way, will require biopsy and removal of affected tissue. May even require amputation. That scared the crap out of me! As I said b4, our specialty hospital is UW Madison, which is 90 minutes away. And we moved to this community of 5000 16 months ago and with COVID, have no friends to turn to for help. For those so inclined, I’m asking for prayers please.

Goldens, yikes, sorry to hear your news about your husband. He is a physician himself, iirc? What does he think of the leg situation? What a bummer that the cardioversion was not successful. Planning for an inpatient pharmacological cardioversion must be stressful with the distances and drives and the winter conditions and covid. Ugh. That's a lot on your plate. I hope you can get a plan and some assistance and sort this out quickly!

After I wrote my original post, I went to Facebook and one of the Christian sites I follow and read posted my favorite scripture from Philippians 4:7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God

I have a very strong faith and truly believe God speaks to us if we but listen.

Goldens, having faith can certainly be helpful for stressful situations. I certainly cannot say I am religious but I do believe in a higher power out there. I also have prayed when my cancer came about. Helped my mental health a lot and does whenever I need to talk.


I had a productive morning today, washed 3 pieces of bedding, walked an hour to pick up my burgers and did 20 dollars in surveys which is very unusual. I was happy about that, the walk was nice and feeling good now. I also had my CT scan 2 weeks ago now but no one has called me in to go over results, I take this to mean nothing is there still. I am feeling confident. I find out officially on the 3rd of Feb. My cancer centre would not wait this long to get ahold of me. I will still hope for pockets on the appointment day and will confirm results 100 percent when I get them.

50's oh my ! Is so hard to sit. Even to roll over in bed. It's been a tricky week. Sitting is virtually imp for an amount of time. I have to keep moving. It's painful. It's also painful to stand up from a sitting position. I'm avoiding an X-ray. At all costs.

I'll get vaccine soon as I can. Meanwhile I'll continue to sit home and make quilts. Then I'll make more after the vaccine. Its very therapeutic.

Mel, I hope you don't find your injury is more serious. I fear falling in the snow. Some days I just have to get out for a walk. I really should get on that treadmill. No doubt that would help with the stress too. I've got the energy.

Goldens, So sorry about DH’s difficulties. Sending best wishes that his leg is better soon (with treatment?) and that his Afib can also be treated soon.

I had a consult with an IR today and will be getting scheduled for microwave ablation of 2 liver mets fornext month. Hoping it’s the right decision. I also decided to go back to my water exercise class starting tomorrow. I quit going about Thanksgiving time when our Covid cases starting going crazy. It’s 2 days a week and I feel so much looser when I’ve been to a class, otherwise I’m stiff and achy. Ok, I’m still kind of stiff and achy even when I go, but I enjoy moving in the water.

Waving hi to everyone. I feel for those of you with tough days, happy for those doing well.

KBL<Just taught me not to break my ass! Ugh! Trying to be gentle when I sit, but how does one do that? I thought about a week. But not so sure it’s a week tomorrow, still have certain movements that isn’t happy. So I’m keeping a close eye on how long it continues. Sleep is difficult as well. As if I wasn’t already dealing with insomnia! Goodness gracious.

Mara~ thanks so much. It has eased some but it was so deep the bruise. I just can’t seem To move without pain yet. Just hope I didn’t break anything and don’t know it. That would suck bad. DH has said several times I should go. I’m waiting it out. I hate hospitals. Like we all honestly go enough and I’m sick of it! Thanks for caring my friend.

Mel, it might be best to listen to DH. My husband kept telling me to go get checked in November after our vacation when I thought I had a yeast infection. After trying to treat it myself, it turned out to be an allergic reaction to some wipes I had used. Ended up in the emergency room because I had made it much worse.It was not fun. It might be worth a quick few X-rays just to be sure.
