  1. Hi Everyone.... Some of you may remember me and some for sure will not...but my name is Pam....user name "nonni'.....I've been away for quite awhile...had some issue's...but now back to say 'hi' and hope all is going well with everyone here.... I am coming up on 8 year LC survivor in Sept....I had my right top lobe removed in Sept. 2004...stage 1A...no treatments at all... and have been NED ever since then and gonna stay that way....YES!!! Praise God!!! So you guy's out there that are fighting the beast...fight the good fight and never give up....LC is no longer a death sentence....do what you have to do to get well and leave the rest up to God... hugs to all of you and God Bless Nonni
  2. Hi Everyone.... I hope all is well with everyone or getting better to say the least....I just want you all to know...I'm sorry I haven't been on line for a while...I think and pray for you alway's and above all I'll never forget you....You all have been my inspiration when I was first dx....I'll be forever grateful for that... It's been kind of sad and frustrating in my house...My husband is still waiting for a kidney and has been called 34 times by the transplant team and still no kidney....we almost had one a couple months ago but previous he had been hospitalized for puemonia and he went into A fib and they gave him coumadin (which I told them not to)...well he was released on a wednesday....got a call back on thursday moring that they had a kidney for him....went thru all the prep....hours later the lab come;s back and his blood was too thin (FROM THE COUMADIN) and it cost him a kidney...they gave it to some one else which I was thankful for....So here we are still waiting but it has gotten so bad my husband is now on dialysis and feeling awful....It is so hard to see your hb go down hill when he was such a vibrant man...we are keeping the faith and praying hard....please keep us in your prayers... So this is what's going on in my life right now and of course my first preferance...to take care of my hb....AS for me...I am doing Ok and just celebrated my 6th year since my surgery....PRAISE GOD!!!! So my dear friends...just wanted to take a minute to let you know I'm OK and hope to get on line more often....Just don't have the heart to do much when my hb isn't feeling well....hopefully when his body get's adjusted to dialysis he will feel better or better yet for a kidney to come thru.... love you all nonni
  3. Katie.... i got to this post much too late....I haven't been on line lately and you know why....Had I know you needed help with Hope....I certainly would have helped you...and in the event that you ever need help...email me personally and I will be happy to help out any way I can....I have been a 'buddy' for LC Society for years..ever since I started this journey.....so in case I miss a post about someone needing help...please email me or call me... hugs... nonni

    Just depressed

    HiJudy....I am so sorry for pain...but please..please get another opinion...Your doctor say's he is not educated enough to know what is happening...well helllooooooo....get you some one who IS educated\enough...believe it or not I went for three opinion's and then to a team of eight doctors before I was dx.....Don't take 'I don't know for an answer'...keep going until you DO find out what's the matter...Good luck honey and I will say a special prayer for you tonight.. hugs...nonni

  14. Hi Gang.... The last time I posted I was thinking of getting the H!N! shot and want you all to know I got it and with no problem...didn't feel a thing and no side affects at all.... Now I have a question...after 5 yrs with no problem except one of two scares which turned out to nothing....I am suddenly have rib pain....not bad ...but annoying and know that it is there....not there all the time ...comes and goes...You all know you can't even have a freaking headache and not think the C is back...grrrrrr.... Just wondered if anyone here has had rib pain after so many years....I looked at my profile and saw the I had rib pain once before and the doc ordered 2 MRI's...ct/scan and a Pet scan...and turned out to be nothing.....well I don't feel like being all radiated up again....grrrr... What cha think???? love you all nonni

    In honor of LCAM

    My Dear Katie.... Those video's were absolutely awesome....they made cry and also made me so very happy what you and Rick are doing for LC Awarness....You too have already got your seat in heaven ...for real.... We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts...God Bless you and yours..you are such an inspiration to all of us...and I know your Mom and Dad are up there smiling at you...cause you will never let up on LC and pray that you never will....When the cure comes...I want you to be the first to know love you....nonni
  18. OH Randy...how awful...that poor girl....but that was from the regular flu shot...so you see it could happen with any of the vaccine's...but very very rare....I have to think that something else was going on in her body and the shot triggered it... Never the less....to all my friends here...Thank you for your reply's...you have made up my mind...going to go tomorrow and get one before it runs out....God is in control and I will trust HIM to make it right...especially that this flu affects the lungs....that's all we need right....grrrrr thanks again ladies and gents... Love you all xoxox....nonni
  19. Hi Everyone... I'm sure this subject has came up before but I haven't been on for a while and probably missed it... My hb had his doctor visit today and our doc asked him if he wanted the H1N1 shot cause he had it and my hb said 'NO"...Then the doc said...well that's your choice...but your wife (meaning me) should get it on account of the LC that I had... stage 1A....I really hadn't taught to much about it...but now I'm wondering if I should get it or not....I HATE flu shots....scared of them cause I used to get sick from it...and hadn't taken it in years...until the beast showed up and I had to take it....and that was the year I had the flu and pneumonia at the same time...a really really bad time...so much for the flu shot...Now this one I am really scared of....don't think they know too much about it....So what cha think guys...yeah or nay... love to all and hope all is doing well xoxox...Nonni

    5 years tomorrow

    YIPPPPEEEEE SKIPPPPY.....Tomorrow will be 5 years since my surgery and cancer free...PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!! Debbie...did you hear that..'-)....Gosh where did that time go.... My wish for all of you...is to be well...stay strong...and never give up.... Love you all... nonni
  23. I quit 7 years prior to dx....but to my understanding...my LC was BAC and is not caused by smoking and I agree...their are way way many other things that cause LC besides smoking...so many people have smoked for so many years and are OK...it boggles my mind....and when I did smoke...a pack of ciggerette's lasted me a week...so not heavy at all....Now my girlfriend...years ago her doctor told her her lungs were black from smoking...and now here 20 years still smoking till this day and her lungs are fine....go figure....she IS a breast cancer survivor.... God Bless Us All... nonni

    H1N1 vaccine

    My understanding the shot will not be available for seniors...I do keep up with the pnemonia and flu shot cause I had the flu and pnemonia at one time the year before last ....and let me tell you I was sicker that after my lung surgery....IT was awful.... I just hope they are blowing this up like every other flu that they have scared the crap out of us over the years...it does sound scary...but even if available...I don't think I would take it....got it ready to fast for me.... God Bless us All xoxox...nonni
