    Sorry I just had to get away from the LAPTOP for a vacation. It was my crutch during my Chemotherapy & that's alright! Do what you have to do till the end, read scripture, and pray a lot during the journey and keep family as close as you can. After the CHEMOTHERAPY my Primary Care Doctor asked, "Why are you walking funny?" All I said my left side has pain and that's when she ordered MRI of neck, shoulder, lower back, and knee. She replied, "Nothing is wrong with your left side BUT you have 2 herniated disc in your neck!" HERE COMES "NEUROSURGERY"? Anything at this point can not worry me for I TRUST IN THE LORD! I'm back on line & I send my LOVE to all of you, just DON'T GIVE UP!!!

    Celebration (Remission): Chemotherapy ended July 21, another blood transfusion July 22, and my 60th birthday on the 23rd of July 2012! Thank the Lord for His MERCY, GRACE, & UNDESERVED KINDNESS! I'm still weak, uncontrollable urine, numbness in fingers, and lost 50 lbs. of weight after CHEMO but I'm glad its over. No after care instructions? Just try to live on? I have a scooter coming (God only knows when), Pulmonary this week, and other than that I have to find things to do now (after being in CHEMO on a daily basis).

    Celebration (Remission): Well what I didn't understood I can now understand? All the worry after surgery I had ms-understood why I was going to CHEMOTHERAPY? The surgery (removal) of my Upper Left Lobe Lung contained ALL OF THE TUMORS! I had three tumors and all 3 were removed during surgery.... I had post-op meeting with surgeoan and I thought he said I had 2 more tumors but what he meant was that the 2 tumors were removed during surgery and I was being sent to CHEMO to attack any remaining cancer. I started Chemo on March 15, 2012 & on May 24, 2012 I understood what I didn't understand?
    When you ask questions make sure you understand what you are asking? CANCER FREE & CHEMOTHERAPY ENDS SEPTEMBER 2012!!!!!!

    I've been up & down with this Chemo because of the WHITE BLOOD CELL COUNT? The daily injections are given but I have a problem with consumption of food. I have no appetite to speak of? I finally got rid of people who were negative to my recovery & battle? Now I focus on the battle! My mobility is at a all time low & a scooter + Home Care Attendant is the next horizon. Good thing 3 1/2years ago I opted for hand rails, tall toilet, and Senior Citizen housing for it is all a blessing at this pint in my life! I will try to be more active on the site & express the things I'm going thru & I'm sorry for my abscence. I had to study this "cancer thing" for I had no knowledge & without knowledge I was at a stand still. May God bless everyone's efforts & realize prayer helps!
