SI Prayers/Mojo Request...Cancer


cinnamongurl ( member #37879) posted at 6:06 PM on Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

I'm so sorry DS! Cancer just plain sucks! I was diagnosed back in September, and after 3 surgeries,15 weeks of chemo, I'm entering my last week of a 6 week radiation regimen. I have 2 other friends who are fighting right now as well. They're doing basically the same regimen as you, concurrent chemo and radiation. And they're ok, and you will be too! You have an amazing attitude, and that is so important with all of this! A true fighter!

I'm going to enclose a link for a product called "janes". I hope that's okay. They're basically johnnys that are super soft and belong to you. I bring mine to radiation everday, and wore it through all the tests and surgeries. Those paper gowns just suck.

I love the "AK47 that shit"! You'll do great. Remember to ask for help when you need it, and take the help people offer.

Keep sugar free, hard candies on hand, they have been a life saver throughout chemo. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water, often. Biotene is a wonderful thing as well. Your mouth will be sore and your taste diminished. These will help.

And remember to take it one day at a time. Sometimes the big picture can be overwhelming.

Nothing but mojo and prayers for you! You've got this, so go kick cancer's mofo ass!!

Geeze, go away for a couple of weeks to sell a house, come back, and people are righteously waiving AK-47s all over the place! And no wonder I sorta feel like pulling out little Mr. Shotgun and yelling PULL myself!

You two are in my prayers and will continue to be throughout this journey. You won't walk alone. And now, let's get some good bitch boots to accessorize those wonderful wig suggestions earlier!

BTW, a friend of ours used to get temporary tattoo's and wear them on her skull after she shaved her hair for her treatment. Her favorite was a Redwings tattoo her special team!

Today my tumor started bleeding during my exam and my radiologist said "it's ok...that will happen" and I said "that's because I scare the shit out of it!"

Hell yes!!

I hope your treatments go well. This sounds like a fine excuse not to do housework for the next 5-7 weeks.

Dear DS,

I cannot express enough gratitude for what you do to help us through this website.

I know for sure that you will be celebrating your healing very soon and I send you much light and will have you every day in my prayers.

I know a lot of people who have gone through this and now are cancer-free. Please keep laughing as much as you can.

We love you so MUCH.

God put you in the lives of many of us in the darkest time of our lives to show us some light and we will be transformed because of your labor.

My best wishes for you and your family DS.

Please keep us posted.

Much Love

I found it helpful to work (yes, I'm crazy) during my chemo treatments. Took my mind off what was going on and made the time pass pretty quickly.

You will need something to do or someone to chat with during your time in the chair.

One day at a time--do what you can and let others step up.

I'm not only fighting like a girl...I'm fighting like a BITCH girl!

Yesterday I had my metiport installed. I'm now on my 3rd radiation visit and 1st chemo treatment. I feel really good...just super tired. I certainly appreciate all the love and prayers!!!
