  1. Good morning in Lungevityville, It is a cool 73 degrees here in in the foot hills, to get warmer as the day goes along, but no triple digits in sight for today. Nothing major planned for to day, just sit in front of my computer for a while, watch tv shows on same computer, play a few games, and maybe fold some towels and clothes. Randy, I am gonna start sending out those decals you sent me. and of course put one in my own car back window. The first two go to my brother and his wife. That's about it for now. I hope you all have a blessed and good day! Same time, same station! Dawn { Outrider}
  2. Hello, all of you in Lungevity Land, It is just 81 here at noon-thirty, but probably going to get hotter. Got some work done yesterday, going to get some done today, after both me sleepy-headed Daughters get up, lol. Will also be making a trip to town to get some small things, then maybe home to take a nap, and then figure out dinner. That's all that's happening in my world today. Hope your day runs as smoothly. Be seeing you. Same time, Same station, have a blessed and wonderful day! Dawn (Outrider)
  3. hello everyone in Lungevity-ville! It is a cool 73 degrees this morning in the foot hills of the Ozarks, but promising to go up to only about94 by this afternoon. With no triple digits in sight for week or two. not doing any thing special this Monday but a little light cleaning in my bedroom and trying to move things around in my limited space to make just a little more room. Also, going to try to find space for stuff still in boxes (that haven't been unpacked since I got here) and get the boxes out of the way, which in turn creates a little more room. Got people here to help move the furniture around. After that who knows. The rest of the Day is filled with endless opportunities. Hope ya'll have a good and blessed Monday. Till we meet again, Dawn (Outrider)
  4. Sally, Sorry I did not get to you when you first posted. Sounds like your mother is getting the same chemo as I got, which has worked wonders for me. I had two rounds of radiation to my head,the first one I cut short, the second one after I got severe vertigo and could not keep anything down, even water. The two rounds came after my chemo and brought to light some other things that might be causing the problems in my head, but that's another story. I don't know anything about the supplement you mentioned,but I will tell you that you might want to add a good natural multivitamin for females in her age bracket. I was getting them through the VA but the ones they gave me made me nauseous so I hunted down some at Walmart. And I also take 2 200mg ibuprophen once in AM and then in PM to help with any inflametion in my body or my head. I take them with the other meds that I have to take at those times. And the other things to look out for is she could get thrush and when you first notice it, if you give her yogurt, (any kind) it is easier to take the any "magic mouthwash" you get from the pharmacy. All the info you got from Randy is good as well. Just remember to check with her Dr. before giving her any supplaments. I hope that helps you. Dawn (Outrider)
  5. Petunia, She should not have even as much damage To her hair as I did, mainly because I had PCI twice. My hair took a while to come back in and is just now getting long enough to brush, but this last time it was from chemo again (only 2 months worth) in August of last year. If her hair is already gone due to chemo, It should not be too bad. If it has already started to grow back in, just let it fall out naturally with combing. Dawn (Outrider)
  6. Good evening Everyone, It is a cool 90 degrees here where I live in Ark. at 8:45 at night. I have not really done anything today as it was over 110 by noon. Just been trying to stay cool. I sure hope it is cooler where you are tonight. Dawn (Outrider)
  7. Hi, Sorry I am a little late with a response. After I got the one and only flu shot in my life, the next Monday(it was the mon. before thanksgiving), my chest started sounding like a percolater, sounded bubbly every time I took a breath. This has happened every year since then along with wheezing. I started taking mucinex and when I started coughing this past winter I took mucinexDM, it helped with the cough and getting the mucus up and out. I also have an albuterol inhaler. I just got a new inhaler Symbicort that I have to use once in the morning and once at night. Hope this helps, Dawn (Outrider)
  8. Hi Petunia, Sorry to be getting back to you a little late. I have had two rounds of PCI. One in March of 2009 which I cut short by about 4 days and then again in july and august of 2009. No immediate side effects but tiredness. a couplle of moths later, I noticed a problem with cognitive functioning, In I would lose my train of thought and also my words. I still have those problems to a much smaller degree. And the biggest problem that I have at this point is that I look like I have male pattern baldness going on but not to the extent of complete baldness, just my hair is much thinner where the radiation was a little stronger because they have to do both sides of the brain and it over laps in the middle. Sometimes I feel like asking my Dr.s if I can use rogaine for women to get it to come in a little thicker . If she is handling all of her chemo and the other radiation she has had, she should be okay. just make sure they do that after her last round of chemo; my last round of chemo was Oct.08 so my Dr.s waited to see how I would be doing for about 5 months before they referred me to the radiooncologist. I hope this helps. Dawn (Outrider)
  9. Good Morning Everyone in Lungevity-ville, It is a cool 73 degrees here in Ark where I live, promising to be hotter by noon, like up to 92 and maybe triple digits this weekend. Lordy, I hate summer! The only saving grace is that we have huge trees around our house to keep it shady most of the day. Today is wash day, dishes and clothes.then it is sit around and maybe brush out the fur baby (if she will let me) and cut the matts out of her hair, (again if she will let me) and trim the hair on her feet(which she sincerely hates) and then maybe a flea bath, she doesn't like those either. she weighs seventy five lb.s so wrangling her is a 2 person job, thank goodness my youngest daughter is here to stay so she can help with the big ole furry baby. After that is will probably be nap time for her and us, lol. Have a blessed and wonderfu; day! Dawn
  10. Good morning, It is 73 degrees here in Central Ark and supposed to get hotter. Here where I live in the country, I awake many mornings to the songs and chirps of the birds. I would go and sit outside with a cup of coffee but we have such a spider problem this time of year, that it ain't happenin'. Many of you know how I feel about spiders, lol. My plans for the day is to get my clean clothes folded and put away, get some towels washed, dried, folded, and put away, and maybe work on the baby blanket for my niece (her baby is about 3 months old now!) So I am making him a blanket to put on on (or in)his crib or toddler bed. I am also colloring some posters for his momma to put on his walls. And of course computer time and FB, lol. All in all not much as my plans don't always work out like I want them to. But that is okay, the day has started well, so I am taking advantage of that. Whats the day starting out to be in your neck of the woods? Hope it is a great and blessed day for all of you. See you in the funny papers. Dawn (Outrider)
  11. I would give anything to have cool weather! Here in Ark. it is approaching 90 degrees, with a forecasted low of high 60's. . Planning on starting to get my things together for leaving Friday for the Summit in Va. I can hardly wait to meet those of you who are going, and that I have been talking to for what seems like forever. I hope you all have a blessed day. Dawn (Outrider) PS. Judy in KW I hope you are comfortable. I have lit a candle every day for you and your family, Please know that my prayers are sent up on wisp of Gardinia scented smoke, for healing, and comfort for you. Love you Girl!
  12. Petunia, I did see him this month, it was the same ole, story, I did not give him hell, cause I got too mad myself and was afraid of what I might say, so when I see him my next visit (in July) I am gonna stay calm and get the jump on him and talk first, and then he can have his turn. Randy, that might be good, advice,but I don't know much about if to offer any insight there. Dawn (Outrider1)
  13. Hello All, A few more links for you for information. http://www.webmd.com This site is especially god for you drug information. It also has good info on many diseases including cancer. (Warning a lot of their articles put smoking as the number one cause of lung cancer, which is ( in my opinion) not nessesarily true of all types of lung cancer. For a list of clinical trails go here: http://www.cancer.gov/clinicaltrials For more info go here: http://www.nih.gov/ and here http://www.navigatingcancer.com I hope these links help in your journey.

  14. Good Morning everyone, Today (5:55 in the am) is starting out at 53 and expected to get up to 71 in central Ark today. I sure hate it when we have to use heat at night and A/C after the sun comes up. Have lake wind advisories from 7 am to 7 pm. I have nothing special planned for today, how about you guys? I think I might eat some ice cream, Or maybe just go for a salad instead. Ice cream is the better tasting of the two, but salad is better for me. Such a conundrum! I know! Salad for lunch and ice cream for desert! Problem solved, lol. Hope you all have a good day, with great weather! Have a blessed day. See you in the funny pages! Dawn (Outrider1)
  15. Good Morning! It is a cool 53 here in central Ark, this morning with rain expected by evening. I have nothing special planned for to today, so I might just comb out my fur-baby, or work on that baby blanket for my niece's son. At the rate I'm going on that, I might have it done by the time he is one, lol! Maybe wash, dry and put up towels. Who knows, the day is ripe with possibilities! I hope you all have blessed day despite any bad weather you are having or because of the good weather. Just remember, you decide how your day will be. so put a smile on your face and enjoy the day. See you in the funny pages! Love you all! Dawn
