  1. Hi Everyone, Today Frank would have been the big 60. The kids and I are having a birthday party for him. Frank was so sure he would have been here but I guess GOD had other plans for him.If all his friends would like to have a chocolate donut and a bud lite today I'm sure Frank will get a big charge out of that. Have a great day, Connie
  2. Hi everyone, It's been two months already, and it hasn't been easy.You would think it would get easier but it doesn't. I miss my wonderful husband,best friend,and soul mate.I woke up suddenly this morning and thought I heard someone walking through my house, do you think Frank came back to watch over me? Frank told me if he could find a way, he would be back,and then he would laugh and said I hope I don't come back as a bird, all you guys know Frank when he makes up his mind to do something he could move the world. Happy Easter to everyone, Connie, FRANK lAMB'S wife
  3. Jamie, I think it's a great idea to do Frank's story just let me know what I can do. Connie
  4. Here's a poem I got in one of my cards that I wanted to share with you. Cancer is limited It cannot cripple Love It cannot shatter Hope It cannot corrode Faith It cannot destroy Peace It cannot kill Friendship It cannot suppress Memories It cannot silence Courage It cannot invade the Soul It cannot steal eternal Life It cannot conquer the Spirit Connie, Frank Lambs wife
  5. Hi to all the wonderful people on LCSC, first of all I have to apoligize for my typing (just like Frank)and I know nothing about the computer.I just want to thank everyone for being so kind to myself and my family. We all lovethe things you all have said about Frank,we set and read and cry because we know it's from the heart.Frank loved what he did here it keeped him going for almost four years. Frank not only was my husband but my very best friend we did everything together.I will miss him telling me every day he loved me and how beautiful I was, and some days I looked pretty bad.Where ever Frank went he knew someone and eyeryone loved him, he always had a kind word to say about everyone.He will be missed more then words can say. So thank's to everyone and yes I have read everthing Frank has written on the board. With all my love and gratitude Connie Frank Lambs wife
  6. Dead Man Walking (week 1) Week 1 of Dead Man Walking is one to begin with lots of questions,awakenings,fears,hopes,frustrations .(just trying to type to begin with) .there are so many unknowns that they are too many to mention.We can all fill in the spaces on that one.There were several days of administrative in the home answers and questions.The largest portion of the time spent has been on trying to regulate the primary pain meds from the breakthrough pain meds needed to control the much needed pain relief.(it is pretty severe at times). The nurse Lori that is going to be my our visiting nurse is scheduled to be here at this stage of the game is scheduled to come in for 2 days a week unless we need or call for any reason at all.They are available 24/7 and here fast if needed.We still have some work to do with the meds still.(and the typing). THE FRUSTATIONS: So far this week I have gone from walking on my own power to have fallen a few times(soft carpeting) .I have crawled,walked on knees,and hobbled.I am currently waiting for inside mobility help for inside the house.Most likely looking at this past week the worst frustration has to be the loss of a lot of independence. THE GOOD SIDE: THERE ARE NO goood sides to having this Disease.However I have several things to be very grateful for.My wife Connie is a GODSEND.Connie without a doubt is SUPER.(I will keep her) .Our Hospice team and our nurse are awesome.My family and all our drs.are also super,I can’t say how efficient and good they have all been. Stay tuned,next week we are expecting to begin a week two.I figure my next long term goal is saving some excerpts for week 52.(it is out there and I’m going after it) .The next short/longer term goal is for golfing season.My next short term goal is completing the upcoming week.
  7. Going to enjoy the game.Doesn't matter who wins.Peyton for Peyton or Bears for Bears.
  8. Good morning to everyone.I have been waiting too long to update all of you because it always seems like tomorrow will include more news and some of it better.Most of it so far has not been better so here goes. Again I like to highly praise all the drs.that have worked together very well together in the efforts to get me better.As it stands currently I had been previously placed in pallitive care situation.There really are few limited options and those mostly include comfort only procedures and or tests.Next week I have a follow up consultation for the results of the MRI for the brain tumor and swelling of the brain.I also same day have consult to see if there is any ryme or reason to consider a stent to help with the severe reflux I have been fighting along with all the other stuff. As of day before yesterday I am home under Home Hospice Care. (there,I finally said it).I have been set up at home(I am still mobile and comfortable as possible).The clincher here is not the brain tumors that have been radiated, it is the size,growth,location,etc.,etc.of the tumor in the chest area.Same culprit we have fought from day one.I have been scheduled for the same visiting team for two days a week to check on me Mondays and Thursdays along with 24/7 any time I need it help for Connie and I anytime we need help.Gettting started this week I am trying to re regulate all the pain meds etc.This week they have already been here every day (but making head way).Have been fighting a lot of pain,nausea,reflux and severe bowel (POOP) problems. I have decided to post this update in the Lung Cancer Survivors Forum.As most ot you know I am under constant supervision from Ry, Debi,Snowflake,and many,many others here and gone for a goal of better seek and search typing methods.I am in no way a journalist,writer or any other type of a jotter downer.I hope to begin a weekly or more often open heart relating of my feelings and experiences from now until the end. I am doing this in hopes that others will benefit from my own personal vendetta with Lung Cancer.I will not have time to respond to many posts I receive in addition to the moderating of the forums I participate in.For that I apoligize. I will call this Dead Man Walking and I will try to post it on a weekly basis.This will be a from my heart relation of this experience I am forgoing.I truly hope it helps others here as much as I have been helped by all the others both here and gone.
  9. Nancy,It is natural to feel this way.This is a very serious operation but it will steadily get better.Be patient it takes a while to mend but keep in mind your getting better. There are many here to help along the way.
  10. Donuts here too please.They always taste as good with a coffee as they do with a beer.
  11. Did you ever feel like someone is trying to pull something overt on you.
  12. That was good.Thanks for much needed early am laugh.
  13. Becky,Congratulations on all those words and wisdom you have helped so many of us with.You have helped many,many of us over the years with good advice,lots of good humor,and I may say you have done a good job of policing our ranks when at times a person needs policed. I am honored to be your friend.Thank You.
