What is bugging me is that the nutritionist called. I gave all the bags back after my last NED in January and I think she wanted to know if she needed to order me new bags. I am sure she is a very nice person, but I have never liked her. Probably because what she represented (that **** feeding tube). I know the doctors are not optimistic. If they were things would not be happening so quickly. I was holding it together pretty well --- then she called. I just want to crawl under a rock.

Judy, I am so sad to hear you are going through this. The fact that it is moving quickly can mean there will be answers quickly. We all know the not knowing and the waiting can be the most unnerving. I am going to use the word "cautious". The doctors are being cautious...and caring. They care about you so they want to be on top of this. Words are powerful...so are you.

Hi, Judy. More best wishes and prayers coming your way. I remember when my parotid cancer was diagnosed, I was amazed at how quickly things happened and the first thing I knew, I was on a gurney waiting for the O.R. So, let's hope that the Docs are just being very cautious and caring. Best of luck.

The PET wasn't that bad. The radiation mask conditions you to tight quarters. The fact the tech's were both really nice looking young men helped. Going back to the Oncologist on
Wednesday. Keep me in your prayers - Judy

Stay positive Judy, don't ever, ever give up on the power of these words, "Hope, Thoughts, Prayers ~ Faith, Family and Friends", they are powerful....

Like you mentioned, you have so many things going for you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Please don't be giving up on us, Judy. We won't give up on you. I know this news takes a lot of the wind out of your sail, but I personally had one of my PET scan return a false positive that scared the bjesus out of me for a while till we realized what it was. And several of us, like Hondo, have had been diagnosed more than once and are still here to tell the tale. Keep swinging.

I so know how you felt when you got the news; but am overjoyed to hear you say you're always a fighter. Charlie was quite a basketball fan (Tarheel). He really liked Jimmy Valvano whose motto about cancer was, "Never give up!" Prayers and positive thoughts coming your way!

It is to wide spread for the SBRT. The Doc told me my discomfortant is caused by my swollen nodes not the tumors. Once the chemo starts I will start to feel better.

Judy, sorry to hear that SBRT is not an option for you because it is such an easy treatment compared to the traditional radiation.

I know you will do well with the chemo and you will come out of this the winner.

Stay well and please keep us posted.

Hi, Judy. I, also am very sorry to hear of your results. But, it sounds like you have a great support network and you are obviously a fighter. I'm sure you have read of other folks who have looked at terrible odds and have overcome, so stay strong and keep fighting. So far, I have heard the words "You have cancer" three times and I am still here. Best wishes and prayers headed your way.

Seems you'll be living what we one-rounders fear, which is a second round with the C. Like all, I am most sorry to hear this, but optimistic you will win round-two.

Would urge you to summon all you learned in round one, and the fact you're a veteran at this should be of some comfort, going forward. I would urge you to impress upon your Onco to only error on the side of the aggressive, as round-two has gotten you a bit closer to the undesired result than you wanted, or expected so soon.

Reckon it's Beckon Call To All for Prayers to be with Judy from now, until she wins round-two. This hits us all, Judy, where it hurts- so know we're all with you, and you'll be in our thoughts and Prayers every day. Please keep us updated on your progress, Sister. And,

Believe
