    Donna G got a reaction from Tom Galli in Happy Memorial Day!   
    My husband was a Navy Veteran .  He was a Sonar man.  He entered the Navy in 1963 and served until 1977.  
    After this he worked Military contracts until 2012.  He was active in the American Legion and the VFW.
    He is at Fort Snelling National Cemetery .  One day I will be with him again ____there in the grave next to him.
    He was a wonderful caring person to those he served with, worked with , and family, and friends.

    Donna G got a reaction from Tom Galli in Hypoxia Means What Exactly   
    I saw that news story also.  Being a retired RN I was very surprised that you could have an O2 sat of only 50 and not feel short of breath !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If we had a patient that low we would be very.  very worried     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!    To think it could block that feeling in your brain !
    I have and always have had a thermometer.  Never thought of buying an Oximeter as they suggested.

    Donna G got a reaction from LouT in Introducing Grahame Jelley- NACLC Adenocarcinoma Stage 3B   
    Welcome  Grahame.   I am a retired RN ( nurse ) .  I was diagnosed with Stage 3B non small cell lung cancer December 1997.
    I had daily radiation and Cisplatin and Etoposide.  It shrunk and I had my right upper lobe removed in 1998 . My tumor in the apex 
    was named after the doctor that developed the treatment----------Dr. Pancoast .  So my Pancoast tumors plan of
    care was to have more Cisplatin and Etoposide  after surgery.   
    I am still here ..!!!!   I hope and pray you respond well to your treatment.  Keep us posted.

    Donna G got a reaction from Tom Galli in Trying to find our way forward   
    Hello Ed's  wife.  Glad you found us.  This is a rough journey.  I started with chemo and daily radiation.  
    I also had an overactive thyroid gland that also was making me loose weight.  That had to be wiped out.
    As Susan said they did encourage me to eat lots of calories,  Shakes, puddings, ice cream etc Things easy to get down. 
    Also I took anti nausea meds before chemo.   I truly hope that Ed responds well to his treatment . I don't know what stage he is 
    but I was Stage 3 B .  It took about 6 months or treatment but it worked for me and I am still here to talk to you.
    Keep us posted.

    I pray you respond well to this treatment.  I was also Stage 3B .  The tumor shrunk with 2 chemos and radiation..  I was able to have a lobectomy .  
    Then as was planned I had more chemo after I finished treatlment in the spring of 1998 and have been cancer free since then.
    Keep us posted.
