  1. my husband started out on taxol/carbo until it stopped working and he is now on Alimta and his last CT scan showed his tumors are stable. he has had 3 treatments so far and his only complaint is how tired it makes him.
  2. My hubby is having the same problem he has no appetite, the doctor has given him pills. I also found out that anything sweet and cold works...ensure is great too.
  3. Thank you so much Patti.. that makes me feel better..hubby has been through enough bad side effects
  4. My hubby may start on Alimta next week, the doctor made it very clear that it can't stop the tumors but may slow them down so he can have more time. Anyone have this drug and is it easy on the body as far as side effects?
  5. Cheryl so very sorry to hear about your Dad...my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family and I hope you WILL get some "good" news.
  6. The person below me looks like their Dad
  7. Ellen, My hubby has said it's the quailty of his life that is the issue, with chemo treatments he is always sick and weak. no way to live for him..I respect his wishes, but it all scares me. I had chemo 30 years ago and it was brutal..I have made my mind up back then..never again.... I had breast cancer and didn't have treatments and that's been 5 years ago. That's GREAT that you are doing so well!
  8. Well my hubby got his CT and MRI results, his CT showed his lung and liver tumors are growing, his MRI report said brain mets stable. The Doctor wants to start him on different chemo drugs but now hubby is thinking of giving up, he was such a fighter. He just got out of the hospital and just isn't doing very well, he is weak and wont eat or drink anymore.......Thanks for letting me vent.
  9. I'm getting nervous, hubby had his 6th round of Chemo 3 weeks ago and he just can't seem to bounce back, I know it can get worst after each treatment but 3 weeks seems too long, he only drinks (no solids) and sleeps constantly, only gets up to go to the bathroom... he goes to the Doctor the 27th for the tests results of his CT and MRI. Anyone out there take that long or longer to get over the Chemo?

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to get to them, I once again vomited on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely coo'd and made condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am. Bastards. There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn what this means and how to use it to my advantage. Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow ------ but at the top of the stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously a half wit. The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe.... For now . . .
