    Gratitudes 2019

    I am grateful for my family, and for having a roof over my head, heat in the winter, and food in my belly. I am grateful for continued NED. I am ever so grateful for this board and for all of you who have helped along the way. I'm still having a very tough time coming to this site since DAL...

    Constantly sick in winter, anything I can do about it?

    Do you get outside a lot in the winter? Go sledding, skiing, ice skating, make a snowman. Being cooped up with people leaves you inside w/all their cooties... Being outside will lift your spirits and get you out of the germ factory.

    I guess we're all thinking

    It was a difficult weekend, I flew back to Connecticut for Dave's service. It wasn't easy, but I'm glad I was there, and also glad I was asked to speak.

    Probable Transformation

    Well, I am back home and just got the internet back today after the company messed up twice in getting it back in my name... So, it sounds a lot like what I went through, long W&W and then transformation, and also chemo naive. I did the 6 R-CHOP as well. It sucked but was doable. I did it...

    Devastating News

    Thanks everyone for the kind words... I'm still in a state of shock. He loved this forum and those of us on it. He endured so much, and was still fighting the fight. There came a time when Dave stopped talking to me about his ailments. He knew I worried a lot, and he wanted our...

    Probable Transformation

    I'll be back to post to you when I get home. It is difficult for me to use my iPad because the screen is hard for me to read. Don't panic though!

    Enlarged heart

    Your heart is larger than normal because you store a lot of love and kindness in it!

    I've always had very thick hair. I lost all of it during six rounds of R-CHOP and felt terrible without it. Not because of vanity as much as walking by a mirror and not looking like me. It grew back in fast and furious. However the color had gone from brown to a very interesting mix of...

    Survivors guilt. Has it ever hit you?

    I felt guilt twice about surviving when someone else passed away from this disease. For those of you who remember McKenna, and Michael. Both young children, I believe at age 9 and 10. I could not believe how unfair the universe was to take them at such a young age.

    Discovered 1.7 CM lymph node in throat during ER visit

    I know it sounds odd, but often a doctor will order a fine needle biopsy first because it is cheaper and much easier to get paid by an insurance company. If the doctor wants a core needle one first, then the insurance company will likely deny it as not medically necessary because a FNA was not...

    Old Timers, any memories of JerryOH

    I was also saddened to hear about Jerry's passing. I met him back around 2007 along with Jim as my daughter went on a tour of Miami University. They welcomed us into their home for dinner and Jerry made sure her tour of the college was extra special and she got to meet those in the department...
