  1. Hang on to the book, I think I read various chapters over and over, marked it up, sticky noted it and used it a long time. I have bought at least 8 more copies and given them to people and I am in the process of buying another for someone that recently lost her husband. It's also written so that it can be read out of order. You can skip chapters you're not ready for and move on. I am glad you like it --
  2. I love your ribbon. It is very classy and simple -- love it. I think its important to make the white/pearl as recognizable for lung cancer as pink is to breast cancer. Well done.
  3. I am also an only child - so I really get the stress you are under and what you are going through. First, there is an option for your mom's not eating and that is a feeding tube. Do you think you could get her to eat if you told her the doctor would have to put in a tube if she doesn't? I find that what works is just to put something small in front of the person. Don't ask her if she wants something just slice an apple or whatever and hand it to her. Sometimes people will just automatically eat something small without thinking. Your mom is depressed and could probably benefit from medication. I would discuss all this with her doctor and hopefully the appointment today goes well. Keep us posted. Cancer is extremely hard on the partner and caregiver so you are right to worry about your dad. Maybe you two should go out for a talk and formulate a plan after her appointment today. I hope you get some good news!
  4. Wow! Good for you. I think it's time to open the pub Kasey!

    We get it -- vent away. My husband used to say he was so sick of being sick.

    I am so sorry. I had been thinking of her and wondering how she was doing. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Insurance battle

    The doctor has someone on staff that does this - it happens all the time (unfortunately). They know just how to word things to get them approved so let them do it.
  14. My husband did not have the same chemo combination you're starting with but he did have avastin down the road. Drugs are different for everyone - what bothers some people is a breeze for others. In general though it's important to make sure you drink a lot of water before, during, and after chemo. It will help immensly with the muscle aches and that flu like feeling you get from some drugs. The chemo will take the good cells too, so expect to have a tired day or two following chemo (for my husband it happened the 3rd day following). You can do this.
