After many talks, my Drs. and I decided to go after said cell fucker aggressively. A plan for 40 radiation and 8 Chemos in an eight week period. Got half way through when a dear friend came over with a treat and stayed for a long visit. It wasn't till she had been here for a while when she mentioned, very casually, that she's been fighting off a really bad cold. Great

Needless to say, because my resistance is down, I got sick. I've been struggling with bronchitis for several weeks now. I haven't even been able to sleep in our bed, sleep, when I can get any, is now done in the recliner, can't breath if I'm laying flat.

All treatment came to a halt.

Yesterday I was told that since it's been so long since my last treatment I'll have to start all over again.

Please, please lit friends, I understand that we want to show our support for our family and friends when they are battling this beast, but if you are even the least bit sick STAY AWAY. Fighting this fucker is hard enough without adding more into the mix.

Love and positive vibes to everyone.
Thank you for the reminder. A very dear friend of mine who was diagnosed with lung cancer with mets to the brain has been undergoing chemo since the spring. She hasn't not wanted visitors so I haven't seen her since her last day of work months ago. She called yesterday to tell me that she has chosen to stop chemo. I asked her if she wanted visitors and she again said no. Though it pains me greatly to know I will never see her alive again I respect that she wants to save her energy for her close family.

Your reminder is also something to keep in mind. She is so susceptible to infection right now, she doesn't need me bringing in anything from the outside.

redslady ~ So sorry to hear you have to start the chemo regimen over again. Best wishes and positive thoughts

I had a conversation with a friend on Facebook. I don't know if it will help anyone here, but I wanted to share a bit from it just in case.

ME:
"He doesn't always recognize me but he remembers my name. When I came in to see him Friday, he asked who I was and when I told him, he said "Hello, Love." It's getting easier in some ways. I know a day may come that he forgets what the name means to him, but he hasn't yet. He still raises my hand to his lips to kiss it, or tries to kiss the top of my head if I'm resting it on his chest. I truly believe that if he forgets who I am, it will be the last thing he ever does. I have been so lucky to be loved so deeply."

FRIEND: "My friends grandma has Alzheimer's really bad. She LOVED children, and cared for hordes of children her entire life. In the last couple years she has pretty much lost all ability to function or do anything for herself, but she can still pick up a baby, hold it on her lap and make it smile. If she were stronger she would have no problem changing, feeding etc. but those things she can't even do for herself"

ME: "You know, there's a thing called muscle memory that we talk about as artists. I know it's in many fields, but for us, it's when you've practiced your brush/pencil strokes so many times that your body knows what to do and you don't have to think about it, you just let the memory of what you've always done guide your arm along. I think that applies here."

That is one of the most moving things I've read in a long time. *hugs*

Hi YK -
I have not had the privilege of getting know either of you closely, but your posts touch my heart. I have been where you are, three times. I have always consoled myself by knowing that regardless of where our loved ones mind is at, I know that if I were them, I would be so comforted by the company of someone who claims to love me, so reassured to have a hand in mine and a smiling face to look into. It is not easy, it's heartbreaking. But it's all we can do, and it is what we would need if our places were reversed. Strength and fortitude and universal love headed in your direction.
Please remember, we all have a path. You can only throw flowers on his at this point. Even though they be plucked from your own heart. Peace be with you.

And a big, giant FUCK YOU CANCER!!
Thieving bastard.

Ps...Depression sucks
Well, fuck. I'm sorry to hear this, reds. The cure, in so many things, is such a kick to the gut. Whoever gets up is the winner.

Redslady vs. cellfucker. So ... this.

And I would never bet against you.
