    Roll Call...

    Don't think anyone misses me too much but I am still kicking. Been back & forth coming to the boards, always sad to find about the never-ending, inevitable deaths everytime I come back. Trying to fight major depression among other problems. Had my last chemo/radiation treatment in fall of 2006, for that "suspicious spot" no one seemed too concerned about. Staged from 1B in 2005 to III in 2006. Been very bitter/angry about things. Lucky too I guess. Still have a whole 15% chance of being cured. Better than nothing, though, right? Tried to make my life better by doing some psyhological and diabetic treatments for a few months. Both of which failed and left me feeling both mentally and physically worse. Took time to recover from that, but am still getting all the help I can right now from a little less & different medicationing & another new psychologist. I am better, try to enjoy life the best I can, whatever I can, whenever I can, but still waiting for the crash again. Thanks for listening, Patty
  2. This always happened to me whenever I left a job. It's like if you don't work there anymore, then you can't be friends anymore or something. Even when I didn't have cancer and it is even worse now, since I've had it. People (friends,family,neighbors,associates) have all really let me down in some way or another. I don't buy the excuse that they don't know what to do, I really think that they just don't really care enough to think of something-anything. I think selfishness comes into play with them also. A simple phone call, a card, just let you know they are thinking of you. It's not that hard, as far as I am concerned. I am still very hurt and angry over all the let-downs & constant disappointments. Some days I don't feel so angry and hurt and some days I do. Hope this helps in letting you know you are not alone and it has helped me also. Thanks, Patty
  3. You do what you think will be best for you, Lilly. I am thinking for me that I don't want one until I absolutely have to have one. I have (hopefully) just one more 6 days of chemo and the nurses will leave the stent in for the week for the chemos that are consecutive-daily. Suppose it would be best, to get the port though, if my veins ever got real terribly bad. The best to you. Patty

    Randy, I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you, not only because of what today is for you, but a lot of other times also. You sound like you were a very wonderful husband and she was very lucky to have you and I am sure that you gave her lots and lots of great hugs. You know that she is still with you always, Randy. Sending you hope for whatever you need to get you through this and glad you have stayed here with us. Take Care, Patty
  19. Dear Sweet Lori, My heart is breaking for you & your Mom. I too am in tears over this devastating news. Please let hospice or somebody who is very caring help you. No matter whatever you decide to do will not be the right or the wrong thing. I just know because of all the love between you that it will somehow be okay and you will be okay. Don't ever doubt yourself, you are, and have been the very best daughter to your Mom. I can only hope that when my time comes that I have somebody like you to help me through it. You go ahead and vent and rant and rave and carry on in what ever way helps, but do take care of yourself, because it looks like you are an especially important person with very important things to do. God Bless YOU and your MOM, now and always. And, Lori, you have got to believe that your Mom is going to a much better place where there is no pain or heartache. Sending love, thoughts and prayers, Patty
  20. Sorry for the very late condolences which I hope you both will accept. I hope there is some comfort in knowing she is at peace and free of the awful pain she endured.
  21. Thanks for posting this. It made me feel better. Patty
