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 was thinking today about how I have no energy none. Even the adderall looses it umppmmmhhh after the four hours It’s a pain in the ass to have a chronic sickness to make you this sick and this limited to things you used to do. I hate feeling hopeless. Daily. I’m wearing a hole in my couch. I just feel bored. If I’m bored. My sweet DH must be also.

Booboo1 - sorry, I skipped out for a few days but I have been thinking of you. In terms of the walker, I definitely used it for the better part of a month. I hated it. I was able to walk with crutches pretty well at three weeks, if I remember right, but I wanted to be super stable on that leg and able to bear some weight on it comfortably before I was willing to push crutches. Just for stability sake. I was reasonably athletic before all of this but I was terrified of falling. I was definitely walking with a cane by 6 weeks and now at 14 months out I am functionally independent except for a little bit of stiffness in the quads and glutes on that side. The first two weeks were definitely the hardest part.

Mae - Good Lord! That picture made me cringe all the way to the toes! Definitely down for pocket duty on Friday and I will bring dessert!

I got word yesterday that my PET scan is scheduled for Friday. We are not expecting to find anything but since it's been such a rough month and I continue to have pain in my left chest area and left shin my doc felt it was warranted. I try not to worry about these things, it seems like imaging should be so routine at this point. I will update when I know something.

Emac, my pt didn't offer me the use of a walker, I was put straight on crutches. She did come every day for the first 2 weeks though after I went home, by the end of the 6 weeks I was down to one crutch, then I just used a walking stick if I was going to be doing a lot of walking.

Mel, I feel for you with not being able to do much in a day, this new chemo has zapped all my energy, I'm napping 2 to 3 hrs a day unless I have Finn but after he leaves I'm exhausted and asleep in my chair 10 mins later.

In your pocket as well Emac for your petscan on Friday, along with being there for Mae for her radiation treatment. Well its 2pm here and I'm on pickup duty for Finn today so I'd better get a wriggle on, take care everyone no matter where this week takes you.

Emac,

Thanks for the update. I know once I’m 6 months out, I will be glad I did this operation. But right now, I’d like to throw the stinking thing (walker) in the pool!!!

Mae, pocket duty for sure on Friday. I’ll bring caramel corn (my sister bought some for me in one of the local towns that they went to yesterday).

Mel, I think of you every day with hope, and pray that you can find a way to accept your disease and live with it. Big hugs.

Mae and Emac, in your pockets tomorrow. You both seem ready to go, mentally. Mae, your pic with the bolts was kind of startling, but good that you're experienced and once the needle part is done you're ok with it. Is that a one time rads treatment or more?

My post ablation liver MRI is coming up on Tuesday. I think it'll tell whether they zapped everything or missed some. There was a question about that in the CT right after the procedure in Feb. Hoping for nothing new (like we all do).

Going today for my first pedicure since Covid started last year. I only get them during sandal weather, so last spring and summer I figured I'd just skip them. I even got to liking the plain look. But I also enjoy the colors, so here I go!

Hello to all. I hope it's going ok today. 🌷

Worrying about Candy now. Hope she will be able to check in when able too.

Not too much going on here, still in full lockdown so not much opened up.

It is a beautiful sunny but much cooler day, done two walks so far, picking up the mini donuts I LOVE at the burger joint since I really don't enjoy the beef burgers anymore. Suppose if I wanted to feel like I was eating harveys could just sub an english muffin, use one of my meatless patty options, throw some cheese on top and if need be, order up some onion rings and a mini pepsi, Would be cheaper and better tasting than the burger they offer there. We will see, ordered out last night so need to keep it to the minimum.

One thing rankled me during my second walk. The garbage and recycle people left the garbage and recycle bins in the MIDDLE of the sidewalk. Not everyone will be home. Out of more selfishness than a good deed, I did actually move the containers closer to the houses to get them out of the way. Common sense garbage people, you are paid a lot for your job which is hard work but at least put the containers more on one side.

What a special person/thing to do. Thank you for making me smile. I'll put it on my van. Good people are truly here in this place. We have. So thank you very much! (Santa)

Bev Jen thinking of you.

Mae, riding along with you to grab your toes should you feel the need to boogie woogie at an inopportune moment.

Waiting to hear if Candy had any of this good, mythical hospital food that Mae speaks about. Look forward to hearing from her. 

Sondra, congrats on having nice feet!  I think you're brave to even let someone touch your feet. I would be squealing and laughing and yanking my feet away. No touch!

Hugs and healing to all.

So glad our Candy is ok. I’ve also been worrying about her, so good to know she is ok.

Mae: I’m sending happy thoughts your way.

Waving hi to all and hoping today is a good one. PT is coming again today to torture me, so once that’s over I’m hoping for the rest of the day to enjoy the beautiful weather

Thank you, also, for all of you who have cheered me on to recovery. I really do feel a bit stronger every day.

I am back.

I have not read your posts yet--- Looks like I have a lot to review, from back to May 3. I came here first today to post.

Well, it was not kidney stones. I have been in the hospital since Monday afternoon with a blood clot to the lung, a PE, pulmonary emboli.

I had pain to my right side and right back Sunday night. I thought it was a kidney stone. I have had stones in the past. But it felt different too--- higher on the back and sharper. I should have went to ER on Sunday night. I just stayed home and forced fluids. On Monday I contacted my PCP. He said to call my MO since I had the liver biopsy last Wednesday. I contacted MO nurse. She said to go to local ER. So I went on Monday afternoon. They did a CT scan and then a VQ scan and admitted me with a PE. I was on a Heparin IV drip. Now I am home on Eliquis.

Sorry I could not check in. My cell phone is not a Smart phone so I did not have Internet. And my computer was at home.

I will go back and read the last few pages now. Hope you all are ok.

Found mets on CT for unrelated issue. I only had 2 treatments with IV chemo for the Stage II, then found Stage 4 and switched to hormone therapy/targeted therapy. I consider myself de novo.

Candy-That sounds like a pretty scary experience. Glad it was caught in time and that you are home now. I also do not have a smart phone and don't want one. We are a small club now.

Thinking of you Mae-hope all goes well.
