Cancer

If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

Daniel, I am so sorry to learn of your recent experience. Dreadful experience for you. Surely a frightening one for Ning. I continue to marvel that you have been able to work at all. 

These may help relaxation, hopefully so:

Sounds like a plan.

Today is not so bad. Just exhausted. I think I'll head for a hot shower now.

Yeah, I bet....hahaha!!

Difficult for you, I'm sure.  Sorry to hear that.

They could use aspirated Gleevec instead of water boarding prisoners.  I was ready to give up all the information I had.

I have hiatal hernia & reflux so I know what some of that burning/coughing is like, & don't dare go to bed too soon after food.

I also have colitis so know about being in the bathroom when in flare, & have to wear a diaper because I often don't make it.

I can't imagine how you felt with the meds coming up, but I can certainly understand it.

Patricia, I don't think recovery from surgery was that bad. But then I was doped up. Oh well.

That must have been an awful experience Daniel!!!

Last night I aspirated some of my cancer medication. I was so tired when I came home from work. Got some supper out of the fridge. Took my medication, then went to bed.

Unfortunately with a small stomach, eating then going to bed is a bad idea. It comes back up. Pardon my French, but that shit is bitter, it burns, it irritates the lungs, it persists, it stimulates secretions, they get coughed up, the throat burns, and it goes on for hours! Holy Jesus! Ning thought I was coughing up a lung! By the way, when you have diarrhea and you are coughing up a lung, it's best to be in the bathroom already. No more details on that, over-share.

Well got over it. Tired and felt bad all day. Lesson learned. Thanks for letting me whine.

:-)

OK< nuff said.

Joan, I'm glad the worst is over for you and you're feeling much better.
