The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

This is so funny. Seems like everyone from Chicago ends up in Florida. Years ago I asked someone in Bonita if they could recommend anywhere to go for an Italian beef and they said "What's Italian beef?" I knew we were in trouble then.

My daughter and family moved to Salt Lake City a couple of years ago. They have actually ordered online from Portillo's and Lou Malnati's pizza. Lou's pizzia is deep dish and excellent. Seems in Bonita everyone likes New York style or Ohio style. We do have Doc's pizza on the beach which is excellent thin style pizza. The owner of Doc's is originally from Chicago, too. He always has the Chicago teams on the tv so we go there to catch some Cubs and Bears games. We are still looking for a good deep dish. If we can't find one, we will definitely order online.

If the Tampa Portillo's is anything like those in Chicago, it's probably not a great place to meet and talk. It's a big, open space with lots of noise. Kind of hard to hear each other. But always a fun and delicious spot that I'd never say no to.

I'm not sure of our schedule right now but if we're down in Bonita for your next get-together, I'd love to come. Right now we're going back and forth with side trips to see the grandkids in SLC. We're also trying to get our Illinois home ready to go up for sale. I do know we plan to be in Bonita for as much of the winter as possible starting some time in November. You ladies are so sweet and helpful, it would be great to meet you all.

bubblebeard - welcome! Dr. Wright is my oncologist, if you have any questions that I can answer! I have been very happy with him.

nbnotes - yes! We need to get together - I have been preoccupied with a recent oral surgery, but am working my way back to regular activities! I am very willing to host a gathering at my house again - I can't believe it has been a year since the last one here - and I have Sat, Dec. 1st open, and Sat. Dec. 15th, or Sun. Dec. 16th. We can do a morning, afternoon or evening gathering - whatever suits everyone. I even have both the 22nd and 23rd open, but that may be too busy a time for all - but, let me know.

Hi tampa sisters!! Yeah, it has been too long since we got together! I promise I will definitely be at the next get-together. I'm available on December 1st and 15th. Could do 16th if that's what everyone decides. Morning or afternoon work best for me, as I will be driving an hour each way and prefer to do that during daylight hours.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Regarding the conversation several weeks ago now, if you are moving to Lee County or know anyone newly diagnosed here I highly recommend contacting this office as a first step in your journey. I was in the building recently and grabbed a card for y’all

I was diagnosed 2 days before moving to Florida and knew no one in this region. I happened to find them by a google search and emailed to get information, was contacted within hours of the office opening and had an appointment for the next day as a kind of triage, review reports, insurance, etc. Within a week saw my genetics counselor, BS and RO in their office (had to get an MO that they rarely worked with due to insurance coverage who wouldn’t participate in the group appointment 😒) and they all got together that afternoon to make a plan of care. They handled all the calls and logistics for me in those beginning weeks, which as you know is huge! I haven’t had contact with them since the first few months but know they offer more counseling and continuing care if you choose to.

Just wanted to share a resource if you ever need it.

Ladies, I should be returned to Tampa Bay by next Thanksgiving!!! Missing all of you.

Tomorrow is a huge day for me as I'm seeing a Gynecologic Oncologist for an opinion. See, the Tampa VA Gyn said you need a full hysterectomy after reviewing a ct scan and ultrasound report. We're sending you to Moffitt since one ovary now has multiple cysts and is 4cm with the other ovary having a cyst that grew 1cm in less than a year plus something in the uterine wall. However, I moved to Oregon for a family matter. Portland VA said oh well we're not sure whether you need that or not so let's wait a year. Your ovarian cysts aren't textbook smooth and round and tumor labs are good so let's never mind and not worry about it now. Oh and we're sending you to genetic counseling/testing at Oregon Health and Science University. So I said bugger that, I've got insurance and that's why I'm having a third review about it. Prayers are welcome, naturally. Frankly, the Gyn Onc decided I needed to be seen merely from reading the ultrasound reports of June and October along with case notes. That in itself doesn't lend to a warm and fuzzy feeling. Tomorrow I take the images as well.

Bella, I don't know her screen name but there's a woman by the name of Tori Gaskins who lives in the St Augustine area. Both Special K and Nbnotes know her also. Hopefully it will help find someone at least in your general region.

Thanks for the good wishes. Don't think I updated - the Gyn Onc doesn't feel any surgery is necessary at this time. We'll review this again in March after genetic test results are available. By then he'll likely order new scans.

As I said, I'm comfortable with this third consult. Fwiw, he knows the Gyn at the Portland VA and feels she's quite competent. The same goes for the genetic counselor at OHSU.

Thanks!
