  1. Hello Jean!  I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis and hope you'll get some good news soon.  I understand how how uncaring the doctors can be.  I received a telephone call telling me about my husbands cancer.  It was so difficult because I was left being the one to tell him.  He had so many questions and I had no answers.  It was awful :(  


    Please keep us updated (((hugs)))


  2. I'm so sorry to read about your daughter but I'm glad you found this wonderful community of people.  I agree that your daughter is in denial and the fear is taking over her rational thinking.  I don't have any advice on how to talk to her but please know that we all care and if you have questions or just want to vent please do so.  Please keep us updated (((hugs)))

  3. I myself have not experienced it but I do hear many good things about medical marijuana being very helpful in dealing with the side effects related to cancer.  If you visit one of the dispensories in your area they can show you options for edible types you might be about to use such as brownies etc.  Please let us know if you decide to try something and how it works for you.

  4. I've heard the supplement "Part G" is the best.  I don't know if they cover the drugs you need but it's work looking into.  I have a neighbor who is receiving chemo (not sure which combo) and it's being paid for.  Her annual deductible is only $149.  That's excellent! 

  5. I'm so sorry you are dealing with so much right now.  I was a full time caretaker for my husband with no help from anyone until I was forced to call hospice.  My advice to you dear one is that you can't take care of everyone else without taking care of yourself as well!  Please keep us updated and I wish the best for you.  ((hugs))

  6. Tarceva is a pill form of chemotherapy.  Your doctor should tell you when and how it's taken as well as any side effects. My husband had a rash from it which is common but can be treated.  Never hesitate to ask your doctor LOT"S of questions.  That is indeed their job.  


    I'm sure others will follow with more information for you.  Please keep us updated.  ((hugs))

  7. During my husbands illness with lc I kept a journal of daily events.  When he went to heaven in Oct 2009 a made a few entries afterward and put it away.  Since then I sold our home and moved away.  I hadn't seen that journal in almost 7 years and came across it today.  It brought back an avalanche of emotions and it feels like his passing just happened yesterday.  Today is a bad day for me :(
