HERE we Go Again

 Welcome,and may you all have a wonderful 2021. 2020,hurt was plenty, 2021,may your journey have only begun! I just had hip surgery in November,and unable to walk right now,I had to call paramedics feb.2nd because I couldnt get my breath.When I did cough, it was painful. They diagnosed pneumonia on my left lung,and performed a Ct scan and chest xray. I had just spent 7 weeks in hospital february til april in 2020 from from.H1N1 Influenza,Type A flue,and double pneumonia,and never fully recovered. I am mostly bedridden,and I had a seizure in the hospital after my surgery,so they thought the cancer might have travelled to the brain. Well,dealing with being in bed and loss of drivers license and a scary diagnosis,two months later,as I lied in the intensive care unit they told me that the xray showed a "Compression Fracure" on my vertebrae.The doctor told me that the cancer had metastised to the bones. So,after fighting last year and the beginning of this year,I have had a tough

THANKFUL

  Welcome my friends, I have not posted for awhile due to a lot of varied emotions. I have been writing this blog since 2006,my first diagnosis of cancer. I am so blessed and thankful to be here to share my journey with you. I hope you can have faith and hope as you go through your cancer journey as well. I am still at end stage adenocarcinoma.I was diagnosed for this metastic cancer in 2015,and was told to go home,as they could not give me radiation or chemotherapy,as my system was already compromised. It is August 2020,and after a lengthy stay at an ICU,in february to march,6wks,for influenza,and pneumonia,I am about to deal with another ct scan and oncologist report in a week. The flu took a lot out of me,and my frailness shows. My oncoligist told me two months ago that he would consider chemo therapy,and I should think about my options. I tried to,but  I cant seem to consentrate on the unknown. I am already comprimised,and afraid I will feel worse,after such treatments. I am howeve

Blessed

welcome.It is a blessing to be here with you today. I will begin from the last post .It has been awhile since I posted and hope I can catch you up. My oncologist,for my terminal Andocarcinoma,has written his opinion.He now states that the average life of this cancer is 15 months.I was diagnosed with no treatment available,a DNR,Do not resusitate order April 2016. I did not do anything different,I had given up,but I kept on believing. I was motivated by spirit,though my body has been ill . I really cant explain,but again,I am a Blessing! On March 16th 2019,this year,I was told my aorta,had an abdominal aneurysm.It was sure a surprise to hear from my heart doctor that they can Not do anything,to go home and enjoy any minute. The first diagnosis that I wrote about was in 2006,it was lung cancer.They removed a lobe of my lung then.On November 2015 the xray of my chest found this crippling,death sentence cancer. My God,I cant explain it.The doctors had agreed in January that my canc

Am I Living or Dying?

Welcome back! Just a catch up to new comers.This journey was started in 2006.I had a removal of a lobe in my lung where they found a 2cm cancer tumor.Lots of that info can be found on my 120 posts.You were my journal,my way to get out my feelings,and I know from your comments you appreciated me as well. Now,I am on a different journey,and I would like to share. November 2015,after an xray,pet scan,and surgery to take samples from my lung,I was told I had Terminal stage 4 Andocarcinoma,and it had metastisised to my lymph nodes.It was incurable,and I would have 4 to 9 months. The Dr. spent 15 minutes with me,and said.We want you to have a quality of life."Your health is not good and radiation,and/or chemo could kill you"Wow!It is now 28 months later,and I am here,or am I. I received a letter after my last scan May 10th/2017,that read. "Biopsy proven Adenocarcinom subcarinal tumor has resolved itself.DESPITE NO THERAPY". They were in shock,I had no medications,a

The Death Sentence

Welcome,my faithful friends. I am so grateful to be writing this post to you. I was told by the doctors,all of them,that I would pass,by December 5th. Please,don't ask about when,just have now. For you first time readers,a bit of a catch up on the last year. My first diagnosis of lung cancer was 2006.I had a lobe removed in one lung and carried on,without recurrence until 2013.I started all the symptoms again,coughing,tired,breathless. It wasn't til November last yr. That I got a chest scan that revealed a 2cm.tumor on my wind pipe.It is on the "cardina",which is a lymph node.. My diagnosis is "Adeno Carcinoma with lymph node involvement" The oncologists told me they could not give therapy.Radiation could kill me,but surely put me on oxygen. The chemo doctor had the same opinion. There is no cure or hope for me. I was sent home to die.I have no palliative care,can't afford is,so my husband,who has his own issues helps me. I have a Do Not Recu

When it Rains,it Pours

Welcome;Yes my friends,2016 has not been good for my family.I have been feeling tough for 3 years,with my situations.Three years ago,I began caring for my husband with his heart.I am 65,he is 69.We have been Married 50 yrs.Well,I found out in November2015,I had incurable lung cancer.He took a bad Heart attack,on January 10th.He now has to look after me.I am not able to work,so that puts more pressure on.He can not look after our 1 acre property,and,on and on.I have been trying to save to pay for funeral,but never seems to work out. It is so hard to actually pay,plan your own funeral. My government paid me 500$ a month on disability,and when I turned 65 last month,they cut my cpp pension to 62$.Now,tell me,How does a woman with cancer alone live in Canada with 62$.This has just happened,and I intend to challenge this,so send me hope,Yeah! Well,physically,I am so tired.I am scared to lie in my bed,just waiting to die.I have no doctor,just the main cancer care people.They do not see
