  11. Learning to give more of myself Alowing God to chart my path Fimding friends here Enjoyng each DAY!! PATIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not being as judemental Money is not everything Learning to allow others to help me when I need it Spending time doing the things that make me happy Spending time doing things to make others happy Wathing the hummingbirds I could go on but the main one is that my Faith in God has grown so much. I am happy here but not afraid to die -it is the next step in this life He gave us.
  12. Give me a snappy-not to rude-remark to say back. Anyone?? Cindy
  13. Camptosar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was on it with the cisplatin in 2001, not long after it had been approved by the fda! Yes I had trouble with the runs so have PLENTY of imodium and lomotil on hand and USE it as a preventitive! I am still here 6 yrs later so I had good results1! Cindy
  14. It is true I was diag in Feb 2001 and had a reoccurance in Feb 2003. Ist course was cisplatin and camptosar, it worked well. In 2003 I had carboplatin and vp-16. I opted out of the pci, I did not feel comfortable with having it done. As of now I am 4 yrs since last chemo-Good luck! Cindy
  15. When I saw it on tv I thought of our friends up there. Please know the whole country is watching and praying for the families effected. Cindy
  16. Cheers to the grand reopening!! I will have my usual ice tea, NOT the long island ones tho-tried that once and had a headache the next day. Tho I had a white russian at the Chicago Bash (well maybe 3 or 4) and those were pretty good. Glad to hear Cindi is well. Hope she comes back soon Cindy
  17. If your mom is doing well then GO FOR IT!!!!!!! So many of us were told "you are terminal" well we ALL are ----- someday. I was diag ext sclc Feb of 2001, it came back in 2003 but I am still here and doing fairly well. Please keep her encouraged and ask the Dr to be more optimistic! Cindy
  18. Ernie-I hate hearing this. I do pray that this place will have the answers you need. Cindy
  19. Sorry I was away from the computer for several days. I had Camptosar my first go around with the cisplatin. I assume it worked well with me-I am still here by the grace of God. I did have terrible problems with the 'runs!! I had it once a week for 3 weeks on and 1 week off for a total of 9 months. PM me with any other questions. Read my profile below. Good luck, Cindy
  20. In 1993 my mom found this shark cartiledge powder. She had nsclc. I had to mix it in her oj everyday!! It stunk so bad. She had a friend who gave it to her, very expensive at that time I believe. Anyway-sharks are not supposed to get cancer-get the idea?? In 2003 when I was diag with sclc a friend gave me this green powder stuff-can not recall the name. I went home and mixed it as directed and thought I would gag!!! before I ever got it to my mouth. I took it back and told him if there was a choice of the cancer spreading or drinking that stuff I guess I would have to go with the cancer! His wife said the same thing! Oh well, there are new things all the time, hopefully someday there will be an herbal cure. Cindy
  21. Sheri-I am so glad he has you to push the envelope! So many Dr and health care people give up on us who have sclc. Tell him to keep up the good spirits and do whatever is needed to get his strength. I am glad there is another option for you all. I had good response to my chemo and rad after my relapse in 2003. here it is 2007! Good luck. Cindy
  22. OK!! Katie-that was one pic I did not see on the slide show so I thought it was lost. Lo and behold I get on here tonight and YOU changed my pic!! Roxy is so sad, she said you would NOT be a good mommy for her! HA!! No-You can leave that one on for awhile, we both looked like we had a good time!! It has been a long time since I did anything like that. Cindy
