    I received an email regarding your interest in our home-delivered meals program. There is an application process which helps us determine your eligibility. You also have to live within our delivery area. What city do you live in? I've attached the application to this email. If you can't download the application, I'm happy to put the application in the mail. Just send me your information and will get it right out to you.
    Once you receive the application, please have your doctor or nurse complete the meal certification form and submit it with your most recent lab results and a medications list. The rest of the ppw can be completed by you and can be mailed,faxed or emailed to us.
    I guess you have to be half dead to get this.When the application was an arm long and I did everything they wanted..I'm so disapponted all the time on things.

      Hey, Pauline!
      I don't know where you found your organization, but have you called your county's Meals on Wheels program? It's probably under the Agency on Aging and ?Federally funded. It's based on income, but they serve meals at the Senior Centers, too. Good luck!

      Meals on Wheels are not what I want anymore.I've tried a couple of times throughout the years and they're lousy.Lots of people stopped.They end up in the trash unfortunately.

    Just in case you're wondering why I haven't been given an update about the doctor now being concerned about my cancer spreading to the bones and brain is because like always things are being dragged.I'm being told one step at a time.
    My blood test was high a couple of weeks ago so he took another blood test last Thursday.It came out fine.Had me go for a chest xray yesterday and that was fine.My lungs are clear...But why a chest xray on my lungs?M lungs are always clear every time I had an xray.I had to fight for an answer.I'm loosing weight every two weeks. of a couple of lbs.And other symptoms are happening and I'm told one step at a time. I believe the oncologist is going to be the next step since they've been wanting me to go for months and it's so far away now that someone is suppose to go with me in April.It kept changing on the dates for months now.I guess I won't have an answer 'til they decide to finally get to the root of the problem instead of going around in cycles for money.Well that's it for now.
    I'm still waiting for surgery on my dental since last August. I've been having problems since 2012 with teeth,bridges and ( dentures now of 6 teeth on top).

      The waiting must be unbearable. It would drive me crazy. I am sorry that it has been dragging on all this time. Hopefully they will have answers for you at your next appointment. I am keeping you in my prayers. Take care.

      This and other things as been going on for years for me.
      They didn't make another app. this week.
      I like this clinic and the staff .I've only been going since July of 2017.It's close to home and more personal then going to an hospital for years.My doctors started to leave one after another for years now.My Cardiologist left in March of last year which was hard for me because I really liked himlike a few others that I had.The only one who's still thre is the surgeon.But the cardiologist recommended the cordiologist and GI doctor at another hospital close to home before he left and they're great.It took me 20 years to get a prescription for my colon problem and it works 75 %.They are very friendly and open with me.I need someone like that.I don't like being in the dark which happens too many times in this world.
      I'm just rambling so I leave it at that.lol!

      Praying for you, PaulineJ. Your journey sounds very frustrating. I'm so sorry they can't seem to get to the bottom of what is causing you problems.

    As much as I don't want to I have to say goodbye and Happy New Year to all. I just have to much trouble to get in here. to see the questions,etcI have commented on this a couple of times and I don't think I got an answer.I can get into the digest on my emails,but as soon as I do my browswer shuts down.Plus it doesn't say signed in anymore,but in here it does say I'm signed .But I only see Greg's posts.

    NEVER GIVE UP!I"M VERY PERSISTENT.IT"S BEEN 2 WEEKS I'VE BEEN ON THIS SITUATION. The ins.was denying me all this time.

    Dr.Williams )cancer surgeon) called me this morning and told me to call the Wang Bld in Mass.Gen. Hosp. and gave me the # that when we got off the phone I saw it was the same # I called for the 500th time ,but got the wrong dept.So I told them I needed the Wang Bld.and tell them I need oral surgery (surgery extraction).Would you believe with all the different # 's /extensions people have that you have to choose today.Well I was clicking on dental whatever. They transfered me to the Dental surgery when I explained for the 500th time what I needed.So I have an app.on Feb.3rd. @11 AM.I guess this is the dept. hopefully.And it may be a while for the surgery after this app.So now you can stop being miserable.And also for that girl since I gave you a link for her she'll get a lot of support by the cancer patients and she can also right questions to them .She'll get a lot of good comments /suggestions.Tell her to look out for Greg's comments and posts.He's runs the group and had many cancer situations.He's great in advice and everything.

    Never go by what the mammogram or ultra sound results gives and wait for 6 months to get another one.And them telling you that it's a cyst and benign..Always see a surgeon immediately to have a lump taken out and a biopsy.That is the only way of knowing if it is cancerous.There's so much I can say about this that's happened to me,but I'm very persistent in finding out things and ther surgeon told me I did the right thing,because it was cancerous and spreaded.Had 2 surgeries because I waited 'til the 6 months and had second mammogram and ultra sound.Now I'm on chemo and radiation treatments.I'm a stage 2.Please Ladies do not wait.....God bless you all. <3

    Just had fluid taken out of armpit by surgeon for the second time yesterday.He doesn't quit undersood why it came back.Maybe you have fluid that needs to be drained out by the surgeon.It doesn't hurt whatsoever.
