missyk Posted September 25, 2006 Share Posted September 25, 2006 Yes, I've still been lurking around...just haven't had much to say, really. It's been rough emotionally for other reasons than Mom and I've just had a case of the blues I couldn't shake. They're hanging around *persistant lil bugger* but I'm surviving. As is Mom. Yup, still here and still chuggin' right along. She went and saw her rad. onc. last week to find out if they could do anything about the (what we assumed were) tumors on her neck that had started to cause her some significant pain. Enough she complained about it and she doesn't complain about pain often. He told her "Da*n Sue! You're lookin' good!" Mom told him, other than the neck, she felt good! He told her (no big surprise) that the lymph nodes on both sides of her neck were cancerous...but he's starting her on 10 double rounds (one to each side each visit) of radiation therapy to nuke those 'lil buggers. He told her that the worst she should experience from the treatment would be the "typical" sunburn type thing around the area treated. So, we're still on smooth sailing mode...and waiting. I wish we could remember what it was like before all you thought was "WHEN is something else going to come up we have to deal with?"...but this is life and I'll take it. It IS life, afterall. **As a side note...my husband and I went to the local watering hole last weekend for the first time in AGES and I wore my LCSC tshirt! LOL That drew a few looks...and gave me a grand 'ole chuckle!** Much love and many prayers for all on here...you're the greatest!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
