Cancer

Posted in General on Mon, Feb 14 2011 - 09:40 AM

I had a PET Scan done in Jan. For all intents and purposes, I'm cancer-free, though the drs saw inflammation where the cancer node used to be on the lung. They'll keep an eye out on it. I also have arthritis all up and down my spine (tell me something I don't already know!). I'm going in for a sleep apnea study next month to see if I have it....

Richmond Metroarea

Posted in General on Sun, Nov 14 2010 - 04:26 AM

I went to see my folks in Richmond, Va last weekend. I enjoyed seeing a few friends, in-laws, and my family. I have memories of driving around when I lived there in the 1990's and 2000's; but that's all they are...memories. I have a feeling that God doesn't want me to live there, only visit. I was SUPPOSED to have left town between 8-8:30AM. I...

CyberKnife

Posted in General on Wed, Nov 03 2010 - 09:00 AM

It's a high and intensive radiation treatment that has pinpoint accuracy and is less invasive than lung surgery. 3 days = 5 radiation weeks. most side effects are shortness of breath. i also have a dry to phlemy cough. i passed it according to the rad dr.  However, I have to wait for the full-body PET scan and see the drs in Jan before I would be...

Oops

Posted in General on Mon, Sep 06 2010 - 09:08 AM

I forgot and took both the lisinopril/hydrochlorizide and lasix without waiting an hour in between. I'm paying for it right now with lightheadedness, some dizziness, headache, pressure and feeling like I'm gonna pass out.

WhooHoo!

Posted in General on Mon, Aug 16 2010 - 12:37 AM

:D I have a big smile today. I'm with my church single group tomorrow. We're going to a B-B-Q place. I'm going to a nutrition outing the day after tomorrow. A church member's asked me to join the nutrition group. I know I need it with my weight, plus the cancer.

Chemo Update

Posted in General on Tue, Aug 10 2010 - 11:14 AM

This is my last chemo month! I'll have CT scans done on the 27th, then see the chemotherapist on the 31st. I haven't a clue as to what they're going to do past the 31st. I'll have to wait and see.

Wow Update

Posted in General on Fri, Jul 16 2010 - 07:23 AM

I have a medical book: Clayman, B. Charles, ed. The American Medical Association: Family Medical Guide. New York: Random House, 1984. I looked up the questionnaire for vision problems on pp. 130+131. P. 131's last question was about flashing lights that I had on July 1 and last night. It may be retinal degeneration; but some of the symptoms don...

Chemotherapy

Posted in General on Tue, Jul 13 2010 - 04:29 AM

Yesterday, I phoned and left a message for my chemotherapist about discontinuing chemo on weekends starting this Friday. I've had weekend diarrhea on the 2-week chemo rounds. It's interfering with my churchgoing. I won't miss church if I can help it.

Wow

Posted in General on Thu, Jul 01 2010 - 12:44 AM

I'm seeing a bunch of different colors blinking, scintillating, and moving in different directions in in a zig-zag line in front of my eyes and when I close them. It's pretty, but kinda weird, ya know? .Maybe I've been on-line too much today, and it's my body's way of telling me to get off the computer.

Happy Birthday, Dale

Posted in General on Fri, Jun 25 2010 - 12:10 AM

Today's my brother Dale's birthday. He's 52 years old. I never thought he'd live to be this old!1. Dale was stung by a scorpion when he was 3-4 years old when we lived in S. Carolina for a year. He'd been sleeping that night/morning when my parents found the scorpion. Mom hit, smashed, and smothered it with an old wool army blanket we'd had...

Car

Posted in General on Fri, Jun 11 2010 - 08:09 AM

I had $600 last May to put down on or get a used car. In a bad economy, no one wanted ready cash. They were looking for "a better deal" (yeah right). Dealerships wanted $1,000 and on up, while people wanted $800 and on up. I've been renting ever since, since that's affordable from $191 and up. I wish I could drive on a day like today....

Groupies

Posted in General on Fri, Jun 11 2010 - 07:25 AM

I moved to an apartment complex in 2004 that wasn't too bad. I met Pard there in 2005, so he invited me to his church. Pard was a nice, good, decent person who wouldn't have hurt a fly. A group decided that they didn't like him when he'd sit down to talk with them circa 2006. One Groupie called the cops on him, so I stood up for him when the...

Sickness

Posted in General on Thu, May 27 2010 - 12:24 AM

I've been sick for the past few days. I even threw up this morning while on the phone with my chemo doctor's nurse of all people. It's either the chemo med or the lung spread that's made me sick. Yesterday was a medical doozy and a half, People were talking as if they were far away. My head felt like a ballon ready to pop. These are high b/p signs....

Mix Up

Posted in General on Sat, Apr 10 2010 - 10:10 AM

The radiologist saw the path report that said I had liver metastasis. He said I couldn't go to a reenactment due to intensive, aggressive chemotherapy. The chemotherapist didn't know anything about it. The surgeon found out what was the problem. It was a typo with liver for the LUNG metastasis that I already knew about months ago! Arrgh! I'm going ...

Incisional Wound

Posted in General on Mon, Mar 08 2010 - 07:06 PM

This is the first time I've been able to get on-line with praize.com. I had the surgery on Feb 15. They got all the colorectal cancer. They reconnected so I wouldn't have to wear a bag. I got out of the hospital on Feb 22. There's a problem. It's an incisional wound that Home Health Care comes to dress 2x a day.  I'll have 4-9 weeks of it.

Surgery

Posted in General on Tue, Feb 09 2010 - 08:02 PM

I have to go for pre-surgery procedures the next 2 days, then have to be at the hospital on Monday at 7:45 for the surgery. It's kinda scary that it's finally here. I've been waiting for 4-5 months now for the surgery. I feel like every thing's rushing so fast now. I even have a downstairs apt when I come home. We're moving me Fri and Sat. I...

The Pineapple Express

Posted in General on Sat, Feb 06 2010 - 11:05 AM

Really bad winters aren't all that common even in the Mid-Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. The last time the Roanoke/Lynchburg areas had a really bad winter was in 1996 (Blizzard of 96). The Pineapple Express from Hawaii's going a tad too strong this time. It's hit Virginia with some wicked winter weather. The bad weather began in mid-December...

The owner of a farm in southern Albemarle County, Virginia rarely went to it. He went to check up on the farm yesterday. He found a body. Today, the body was confirmed to be Morgan Harrington. I'm sorry about the news. Most of us in Virginia were hoping that she would be found alive.

Sleepys

Posted in General on Sun, Jan 24 2010 - 10:49 PM

I have a confession to make. *blush* I woke up at 3AM Sunday morning and didn't go back to bed because I get up at 6AM on Sundays to catch the church van at 9AM. I was yawning through Sunday school class and fell asleep in church!  I didn't mean to fall asleep. *blush* It was that I was so tired and couldn't keep my eyes open. and we had a guest ...

Happy

Posted in General on Tue, Jan 19 2010 - 12:16 AM

My family's thinking about going back to church! My sis-in-law has been seriously thinking about it, and wanted to go Sunday; but a big rain storm came up Sunday, so it's postponed. My brother says he'll go with her; but she's not holding her breath.  My other brother is going to church with a friend; but sis-in-law wonders about that since the...

Health

Posted in General on Thu, Jan 14 2010 - 09:08 PM

I have a clean bill of health for the surgery. My heart's in good shape according to the EKG and Ultra Sound. It was weird seeing and listening to my heart. I just went to the chemotherapy doctor for a follow-up. I'm doing okay there, also. So it's A-OK for the surgery (whenever that will be).

About: I'm a Christian who loves God. I don't like being around people who ridicule God as well as Christians. I don't mean to come off as self-righteous, far from it. I don't like listening to the put-down talk shows that are on the radio. I like going to church each Sunday. My Sunday school class is the tops. The sermons have been the best in years. I guess that's it for now. More later.
