I joined last April!


Recommended Posts

According to my profile, it seems I joined the forum in April 2016 and then promptly forgot about it.  As I was trying to register yesterday it said my email was already in use so knew I must have already joined.  Finally was able to change my password so I'm back.  I'm a 77 year old female dx with Stage 4 NSCLC in December 2015.  I live in a small town in northern Michigan with my husband of 58 years.  We have two children and two grandchildren.

Hi, BobbieA,

Welcome (back) to LCSC! I hope that you make many meaningful connections with other patients/survivors, caregivers, and advocates in this online community. Please feel free to explore the discussion boards and blogs and join in on any conversations that resonate with you. This is a great place to ask questions and get answers from patients/survivors with similar experience. And please let us know if there are any specific resources or support that you need and we'll be happy to help!

With gratitude,

So good to hear from you. Are you in the UP? I ask because I live in NE WI. We are pretty close to the UP.

What treatment are you on? I started out with afatinib and am now on Tagrisso. Initially I had severe side effects on the Tagrisso so I had to stop it for a while. I am back on it now and "so far so good" .

I was very surprised when I was diagnosed with stage 4 as I wasn't feeling ill except for a couple weeks before diagnosis. Was your experience similar?

Hi Bobbie,

Welcome back! I hope we make a better impression this time so you don't forget us so fast this time
You and your man have been married longer than I've been breathing! Congrats on that as well as the kids & grand kids. I have 3 grand children now by 3 kids. A fourth is on the way from the couple who gave us the first one. So far the two older ones are girls. 1 turned 3 later November the next will be 3 on Valentine's Day. The boy just turned 2 the end of October.

If I'd have known grand children were this much fun, I would have had them first!

Hehehe. I didn't make that up, it's on the license plate is have on the front of my truck.

Come back soon!

Hi BobbieA,
I was born and raised in SE Michigan, but I love the UP. I'm in Ohio now, and I love it here too. I'm a "young 56", with 3 kids and 7 grandkids (yes, really. 7)! I also have stage 4 nsclc, which was a recurrence from a stage 3b. I'm not giving up though. I'm going to fight this with all I've got! I wish you the best!

Welcome Bobbie!

I was most fortunate to be stationed in Michigan while stationed at the Tank-Automotive Command in Warren for a total of 9 years during my Army career.  It is indeed a wonderful state and I relish the memories of fishing for native brown trout along the west bank of the Sturgeon River near Wolverine in Cheboygan County.  

I am sorry I missed your first post.  My wife and I felt the need to take a vacation from lots of family stuff and embarked on a last minute Panama Canal cruise.  We are now home rested and recovered and happy we had a wonderful vacation enjoying that "last minute" cruise fare discount.

I'm starting at the bottom of a long list of unread content trying to catch up.  So my welcome response will be brief.  You'll have lots of questions and concerns.  This is a good place to address both.  Many of us are long tenured survivors having started with your diagnosis and endured treatments, side-effects, and recurrence.  I firmly believe three things.  My attitude towards treatments contributed to outcomes.  Hope is a good thing, and if I can live, so can you.

Stay the course.
