Hi DS,

Just wanted to send you a {{{hug}}}. Yes, fuck cancer! I am so sorry that you are going through this.

Your friend is right, you do have to go to war with it. The best advice my FIL got when he was sick is to delagate work to others. Everyone has to become a soldier and you're the general.

I mentioned in another thread that Seabands are a natural way to help with the nausea, here we can get them at the pharmacy and through Amazon. Also vitamin C shots also helped FIL with his energy and immune system. Beef bone broth is also good if you get any of the mouth sores. It's packed with iron and other nutrients.

Hang in there, you will eventually get stronger.

I neeeeevvvveeerrrrr come into Off Topic, so just saw this today.

WOW. Unbelievable.

First---the wig is on point. You look fabulous. I see cancer patients all the time, and the wigs can be not-so-good. Yours looks legit real. I love it.

Second--that port is your new BFF. Saves so much wear and tear on your arms and poor veins. My patients that have them are grateful to not be pincushioned at every appointment.

Third--A new roller coaster for you. Ups, downs, in betweens. Sometimes, the cancer cheerleading section gets to be too much, and you need to have down day. Or a pity party. You can totally do that. Cancer sucks so bad. It's ok to not be in "kick-ass" mode at all times. It doesn't mean you're giving up or not fighting hard<--you probably know all that, but just reiterating.

Thanks for this wonderful community. SI has seriously gotten me through the first year. IDK where I would have been without the resources and information I was able to find and use. We're here for you now.

Hi DS,,

I'm so very sorry to hear this news.

I read through all the posts, and, as everyone says, you can beat this! You are a strong woman.


Adding you and your family to my prayers,



You have taught me that faith as small as a mustard seed can grow into an amazing tree.

Today I give you my little seed of faith. I place it firmly in the ground of your word. I water it with truth. The warmth of your love will make it grow.

Today I ask by faith that you would bring healing from this cancer to DS. I place my trust in you. May this seed sow healing into every area where the cancer has emerged. May it grow into a strong work, redeeming and restoring with great strength and power.

Checking in from the Sofia Hotel, on a stay-cation. But I needed to know how you were doing! (((hugs)))

Thank you so much for the continued is deeply appreciated and welcomed.

I made it through my first 5 rounds of radiation and 1st round of chemo...I'm wiped out.

MH bought me a new MacBook so I can still moderate here during my 6 hours of chemo every out!

Overall, I'm doing pretty good...well, as good as can be expected for having cancer

I worry about MH as he is carrying such a huge load all by himself and he's so worried about me and making sure I have everything I need. I keep reminding him that he has a great group of friends he can lean on especially if he has feelings he needs to get out but is afraid of sharing certain things with me.

I know we'll get through this together...just like we do everything else. We're unstoppable!!

Thank you again...the love I feel in here boosts me up and carries me. Thank you very much!!

There are also resources at the hospital for MH--that is what they are there for.

You look great--keep your chin up. Attitude is everything with this.
