  1. I've been thinking of all of you!! It's not easy to have the "lifting" of the precautions in the air and various phases for Covid.

    I have been to the beach but with at least 6-8 feet between me and anyone else. 

    But people are now onto outdoor dining with the 6 foot distance in place. I decided I should just email my Oncologist to find out what she thinks.

    So far, just staying in the house, or my car to go to the beach....

    Be well everyone!!

  2. Susan,

    I totally agree that explaining and discussing this with our parents is one of the most difficult parts of the process. I see the pain in their eyes and feel so badly to be putting them through all the worry. No matter how we say it, they will be scared...I don't blame them as I would feel the same if it were my children.

    What is super doc's plan for treating this recurrence?

  3. Susan,

    Since receiving the lung cancer diagnosis last summer, I have come to realize that no matter what I feel on the inside, it really is inside me. People do not look at me and see differences, because the scars are hidden. Sharing information with others who are dealing with difficult situations, and/or responding on these forums, has been extremely beneficial. I try to live my life with a smile on my face and recognize that there are many people in the world who need support because their situation is even more difficult than mine. When I go about my day, I can function in my "new normal" and feel quite well physically and emotionally. It's leading up to that next scan that the anxiety sets in..but as Tom said in his post, to stay the course is so important. I wish I knew what else to say. As KatieB said, we did not choose cancer, but once faced with it, we have to figure out how to beat it, stay strong, and move forward. I'm with you and your struggles!!!

  4. You bring hope and inspiration to those of us living with Stage 4 adenocarcinoma!

    My situation was similar to yours in that I was in excellent physical shape, no history of smoking, etc..age 61..Shock to everyone, etc..

    Unfortunately, I have been hearing that this is happening more often.

    Stay strong!!
