  1. Hi Cindy! I'm a bit late... I think I watch myself for other kinds of cancers more than my doctor does. I remember a couple of years after my surgery, I went for a bone scan because I had a big bump on the bone under my knee. The Orthopedic doctor told me that it was fine after the scan, and I apologized for taKing his time confessing that I was afraid I had become a bit of a hypochondriac. He said to me -- Deb, I read your file, and with your history of lung cancer, you NEED to be a hypochondriac. After that I had no apologies, ever, for anything I thought needed to be looked at.
  2. Kasey & Fred- My sympathies and thoughts are with you during this sad time...
  3. My sympathies to all on the loss of Connie.
  4. Hey Linda - so good to see you!! I have been so busy and with the 'invention' of Facebook, find it hard to 'fit' everything in sometimes! This last June was 7 years from surgery and I am doing wonderful. I know that every day is a gift and try to make sure that I remember that each morning when I wake up! Will make an attempt to stop by more often!
  5. Now THAT's what I'm talkin' about! ))) Wasn't David all about the blonde jokes?
  6. LOL - I LOVE it Becky!!! )))) I think we need some BLONDE jokes up in here... anyone have any????
  7. Cindy, My twin - you are one of those people that I don't talk to often, but it gives me so much comfort that you're there with me out in this world. Congrats on the 7 years - we have made it girlfriend - next time I'm in Chicago I am going to MAKE time for lunch and dinner and we will celebrate together. Maybe I'll even drag you out for a tattoo. So glad to read this.

    Cancer Free!!!!!

    Melanie, So glad to hear that you are cancer free!!!
  9. so..... any updates on Melanie?
  10. So good to hear Linda!!! I have been thinking about Melanie and am glad she did well!
  11. Wooooo Hoooooo Muriel!!!!!!
  12. Melanie, Am glad to hear that this is happening soon... not only do you want to get that thing out but it gives you less 'waiting' time! Someone told me once that having surgery feels like an entire fleet of trucks hit you, but every day after that there is one less truck!!! That sounds extreme, I know, but the analogy really helped me- if I felt bad, I knew the next day I would feel one truck better. And you know what? I always did- sometimes 2 trucks better!! Like I said before, I am the worst chicken in the world but the recovery wasn't as bad as I imagined. Keep hitting the pain
  13. There is late and then there is WAY late..... Congrats Jamie---- so happy for you!!!!!!
  14. Linda - Sorry, just read this post and I know its resolved but I had to say I'm proud of you - question question question!!!!!!!! Just to add--- I always get my CTs without contrast as I had an allergic reaction to the dye years ago and although I eat shellfish now, I don't want it intraveneously pumped into my body. However, I can't tell you how many times a Tech got annoyed with me because I told them no contrast. A few of them have told me "well, we're at a hospital in case you have a reaction, we'll have help". I have asked several doctors and radiologists if I am hurting myself
  15. Crap Val, I missed it!! Hope it was wonderful and filled with warm memories!!
