    Ah Sandy! So good to see you! Nice message images as usually Runningdeer! Thank you.

    This week was particularly rough chemo wise. But I'm enduring it! And with any luck at all I will be in remission after the end of this round. At least I'm going in the right direction.

    Due to the rough week I've had my thread is delayed but I promise by the next week I should be done and publish it.

    Now I simply have to share my grandson's birthday photo and the biggest reason to fight this cancer and kick it's butt!

    Awwwwww! How precious!!! (Me, too, Foxie Loxie! )

    I've heard that the people that survived the holocaust were the ones who were determined to see their loved ones that they missed. And they DID!

    That means your attitude will prevail and you WILL kick its butt.

    Love and prayers for you.

    Shadow , that photo of your grandson gives us all here on Avalon a moment of respectful pause, ............ realizing truly what is important for all of us adults who were once that size, that it is our duty to leave behind a world and future much filled with optimism,hope , love, and a very bright future for all those little tikes to experience.

    Default Re: Cancer killing/Killing Cancer ~ My Heart Path

    Good morning!

    I apologize for the long pause. Oh I wish I could get a spa treatment! I'd give anything to be sitting in a botanical hot pool with the scents and sounds of nature all around.

    I've been truthfully having a hard time the last month. ups and downs. An example is I could not do my chemo last week because my blood platelets were too low and I don't want to bleed to death from the chemo treatments. If they are not up by this Monday I will probably have to have a blood transfusion to add some platelets to my blood. I'm guessing it's being caused from the blood thinners for my heart. I'll find out more this coming week when I get a chance to speak with the doctor.

    A week from Monday I get another CAT scan and see how the tumors are progressing. I have stopped losing weight which is a good thing. I've been working on eating high calorie and protein foods and even some ice cream which makes me happy.

    I think the hardest thing to get over is the fact that I'm just too tired most of the time to do much. For me this is hard as I'm usually very active and the inability to do the things I'd like to do slows me down which I'm just not used to. Every day seems to be about my next dose of medicine.

    This is a small glimpse of a somewhat successful stage 4 cancer patient working to fight everyday for my life. After I got my computer up and running great I stepped away from it and didn't even open my laptop for almost a month. But here I am back and hoping I didn't worry you all too much.

    This is obviously a personal decision to go the route of chemo and if anybody else here gets this awful disease they can see what one person is going through to fight it going that route of chemo. I must admit I was sent some CBD oil which I am going to probably add to my list of treatments. So many people have recommended it that I simply have to see if it makes a difference. We'll see. I have learned that the chemo with this kind of cancer (small cell lung cancer) will eventually stop working which I've been warned about. Then it seems I qualify for trials. Unfortunately there does not seem to be much information out there on trials for small cell cancer that I can look into and the choice of trials will most likely be up to my doctor.

    So far besides the blood platelets problem I'm doing well with the chemo which is a positive...but eventually it will cease to work. Until then I just have to keep searching for what will be next in the fight for my life. The hardest thing to deal with is the occasional depression which pops up every now and then knowing what is ahead at some point in time. That is a total mind bending experience which I would not wish on anybody but this is what every cancer patient with a diagnosis must at some time face.

    My last official day of employment is the 6th of this month then I'm officially unemployed which is a strange experience for me as I've worked all my life it seems at some job and this is the longest time I've ever not worked at some job in my life. My temporary disability officially ends then and I guess you could say I'm a free woman! Whoa...another thing to process. Part of me screams with glee then another part is lost as to what to do now. The truth is the only thing I have to do now is heal and this is the hardest thing to accept as this is by far not the easiest thing to do. In fact this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

    I did start a herb garden on my back porch with some help and it's doing great. It also has some cherry tomatoes and kale which is considered a super food and very good for you. Also a variety of peppers from hot to sweet. Joe would be proud of me eh?

    So I'll close for now and later this week I'll send some pics of the garden. It's very therapeutic and keeps me daily in the sunlight which is also good for me.

    Have a great day! And thank you all for the warm wishes and thoughts.

    Heck yeah I am! Any plant or seed that you put out there is a process of creation! It is hard to muster the energy every day, but being able to see things grow out there can help force you to go outside just to reconnect

    Speaking of clinical trials, I hear that doctors use this website a ton:

    Good Morning!

    Hay Joe! Thank you for that link! It has Carboplatin which is one of the drugs I'm on in combination with another one I'm not familiar with. I'm on Camptosar and Carboplatin. This gives me somethings to research! Thank you so much.

    I promised some pics of my potted garden on the porch. So here goes...

    Here is a bit of a list of the garden contents:  Cilantro, cherry tomatoes, spearmint, a wide variety of peppers (hot and sweet), thyme, oregano, basil, and kale.

    I also decided to feed the bees with a variety of flowers.  

    Cilantro and cherry tomatoes:

     

    Some pepper plants, basil,oregano, and thyme.



    somewhat growing larger than expected the spearmint:





    I think there is a limit to images so I'll add the rest in another post...
