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.....

Muddling~what a sweet thoughtful thing for you to do. Trust me I know how those sweet and special things take time. You're such a precious woman to do that. Thank goodness for sweet people like you in the world! I'm sure they will be delighted!! Nothing like a home made touch ! Just lovely

Grannax Glad your vacation is solid again!

Gracie~ hope you're feeling good this go round! Love you!

Minnie ~Have. A Good time with your friends. Special times. You relax and celebrate your good news darling!

Shelia Marie~ waving hello and hope you’re doing good today!

Waving hello to Mae also. Was playing some B52s today! 52 girls. Thought of you!

Today was make the song listing day. For the DJ! It took a while. I am very versatile with my choices in music. I love all kinds. But most dance songs have bad words in them now a days so I had to be careful. It took a while to write it all up. I have two days left. Check another thing off the list. The music is chosen and done. 😅 phew ! Hope everyone is safe I am thinking of people in the storms pa. Hoping all is safe with families and communities.

Much love ~M~

Ladies I got surprisingly wonderful news today from the IR. The MRI did not show anything in the area the PET lit up. In fact there was nothing suspicious in the liver at all. There was some scar tissue from the previous y90 he thought.

The plan is to wait three months and repeat the scans, then if something shows up he could do a procedure. I still don't know if my MO will still want me to switch to AA or put me back on Ibrance. If the PET areas increase uptake it's mets, if they don't maybe it's just inflammation.

We are going on our trip in spite of the Hurricane. It looks like it's staying south of where we are going. Still going to get some rain but not like the mainland. I hope none of you are affected, especially for the reception plans, micmel. Good job on the decor.

Woot woot Grannax!

Muddling, how loving of you to make that bonnet for a new, wee babe. Sometimes we feel gratitude that we cannot repay in kind. You have done so!

Micmel, Martha Stewart is going to be knocking on your door asking for decorating advice! I LOVE that burgundy and bling!

Had my 6 month follow up mamm today to the 4 month mamm I had in March of this year. They were watching a 'thing' that shouldn't be there, might be scar tissue, might be cancer, let's just see what it does. Well it seems it's shrinking because it is smaller now than it was on the last two mamms. Tech told me they are very happy with this mamm and see me in a year! WOOHOO!! I was so tense. I was more tense than I even knew. I came home and crashed. But now after a little nap (and some coffee) I feel a lightness in my heart and hope that stays with me until next mamm, when I will worry all over again.

Hugs and strength to all you ladies!

Melissa, You have done beautiful work for the reception. I am sure everything will be perfect, and you will create wonderful memories of the day. I look forward to seeing pictures.

Muddling, You are a tough critic of your own work. I think the bonnet is lovely. It will be well appreciated, I am sure. There is always something special about handmade gifts.

Minnie and Runor, YAY for your good news.

Lynnwood, I wish I had the words that would help you through this funk. Try to remember the good times you spent with your Dad. Think of some laughs you shared or some special places you went together. My grandchildren often talk about the day my dad sat at the kitchen table throwing grapes and strawberries at them so they could try to catch them in their mouths. Can you imagine? No one could tell the kids to stop, of course, because their83 year old great-grandfather started the entire game. My son and daughter-in- law could do nothing but laugh along with everyone else. It is one of their fondest memories of their great-grandfather, and I have to admit, it is him to the core.

Hugs and prayers from, Lynne

Lynne(50's)~Thank you for the kind thoughts and wishes. I'm starting to worry about my physical state where Saturday is concerned. I am sore, my entire body is aching and I am just exhausted. I have been non stop really since the shower and the fatigue is getting to me badly. I really am not feeling to good today at all. I'm brutally tired. My head hurts, I have no appetite which is why maybe head hurts I'm sure. I'm just too tired to make anything. Feeling like this isn't good. At all. 😞 the old me would have had these kicked long ago. I hate ironing, it literally sucks and brings out the heat in Heat flash ugh ugh!

Runor nice outcome with the mammo

50s girl always happy to hear from you

Lynnwood 1960 I went to see alternative medicine Dr. because I know I need a mood adjustment from life with cancer. I don't know what it will take but I know I will try something new because some of these feelings of anxiety and dread do not go away.

Micmel I cannot wait to see everything spread out throughout the rail car and transformed into the most beautiful wedding ever.

My sister is in North Carolina she didn't evacuate she's in Raleigh. She told me today that they've eaten through lot's of provisions with the sun shining. Peanut butter and saltine crackers, granola bars, soda, water, juice, and her grandkids want the cookies so those have been opened too. They've been to the Food Lion 3 times in 3 days trying to keep potato chips, little debbies and pies stocked up.

Take care all

Good morning, peeps. I’m not in a good place this morning. This back pain is going to take me out, at least that’s how it feels. I’m so tired of being in pain. I promise, I can handle discomfort, say a level 3 on a pain scale, but I’m at a constant 6 or higher. I’m tired of spending my life sitting in a recliner with a heating pad or lying down as these are the only positions that allow me to rest. I’m already on fentanyl patch 50 mcg and take 15-30 mg oxycodone every 5-6 hours. Honestly, if I take 15, I take the next one approximately 4 hours later and that’s after clock watching for a good hour.

And my hair is falling out again. It just got to about 2” and I’ve been so looking forward to having some hair for the holidays. I look like Fester Addams without hair 😢 But that’s enough whining from me. I sincerely hope you all have a beautiful day... xo

Sheilamarie, sorry to hear you are in so much pain. I hope they can give you some relief. It's awful when you are just watching the clock so you can have another shot of pain relief. Hair loss is upsetting always. Mine is terrible, never grew back in parts, so looks awful. I get my DH to buzz cut it, and when I want to look normal I wear my wig. Just bought another, as I save lots from not going to hairdresser. It's not per fect I know, but people do treat you differently when you don't have hair. So instead iI leave them wondering, is she wearing a wig.. big hug

Lynnwood~ Thank you so much for thinking of me and my family for Tomorrow I am getting excited. I an hoping adrenaline will carry me through most of the day. I’m going to take a half of ritilan in the afternoon around 300 just to carry me to the evening hours when I am usually spent. I am sad its my creations, and I have to allow many people to help me, because I just couldn’t never do it all anymore. So I’ll be the director, I am also hoping it all comes together exactly like I thought it all would as my mind sees it. Thank you for caring. Hugs my dear friend. (hope your funk is lifting ). Much love ~M~

Micmel, glad to hear you are more resigned to being the director, it's not a bad place to be. Yes it's hard to give up the doing, I hate how this disease grinds us down. I will be in your pocket (with the Kleenex) jumping up and down to keep you going and keep you company.... between the Ritalin plus my dexamethadone (steroid) from Taxol#18 today, you can pull this off. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it will be fabulous! Remember to please take a deep breath every once and a while and savour the moment! Oh and I saw the bubbles pic....umm, can we send you a virtual toast at then end of the day for a terrific job ?

SheilaMarie, sending you warm healing calming hugs. Could I be in your pocket to calm the pain?...kind of like a worry stone that takes it away just a little bit. Losing my hair was hard, it strikes at who we are and tells the world we are sick. Yes it is upsetting.This time I got my hair cut really short when it fell out. On Taxol, it has grown back quite a bit...now about a finger width. I wear funky hats that I can stuff into my pocket or purse (I love Weekender Hats made in Portland, Or) if my head gets cold.
