That is such great news. You have such a wonderful attitude and it just shows that you have faith with you. I know you will be a great asset to your church as you are a great asset to this message board.

11 treatments out of 12 - you are going strong and you have much to be happy for.

God Bless you and your new role in your church and your journey through the end of treatment.

Awesome!

Congrats on both occasions. They are both very important. I can tell from your posts that you truly believe in the power of God, and that is a great thing. You will be an awesomwe elder, in your church. This cancer has probably taught you how to really empathize with people who are suffering. I know you are truly uplifting and encouraging on the posts. To be going into treatment 11, with such an upbeat attitude is truly great and i hope when I get there I can still be as positive as you. If we keep trusting in God , we can't help but be,. God Bless You and enjoy your day.

You'll be a great Elder with the knowledge and growth this experience has given you, and how much of your inspiration you have shared. One more round after this week. I am so happy for you, things are turning up great now.

I've always strongly believed that. I've experienced this quite a few times. I'm giving thanks for my beautiful and supportive husband of soon to be 19 years of marriage. My sons. Our very close friends. Friends in my support group who are now like family. My great house. God has blessed me. Oh and I'm cancer free.

Hey Buzz... congrats on your two events! I can tell from your posts that the church plays an important role in your life, and we all know the importance the role of chemo plays in our lives. Sounds like, in your life, the two go hand in hand and one has had a profound effect on the other.

Good on ya!!

was the most exciting , moving, day of my life. We have 8 active elders at one time in our church and I was #8....We lay hands on new elders as we receive them, it was something I will never forget...I went to the church this morning and had coffee with the pastor and we talked for about 2 hours about eldership. I am really excited to be placed in this position. It is something that I do take very serious and I am looking forward to helping people in the church as well as the community. Thank you for asking.......

I am on the Evangelistic Team trying to increase our congregation with people who believe and not just bodies. I work in our Youth Group help in teaching the youth the right things about living with Christ and through Christ..We have an excellent Youth Program...I am on the visitation committee to visit new people who may want to join . We visit shut ins and hospital patients. Just last night we have decided to have another Carnival for the people in the community (I have asked to head that venture up) and we had 400 last year. I hope to have 6-800 this year. We have a Youth Rally coming up the 14th of this month and we hope to have 2-300 kids at it also...free food and gifts to give away and we have a christian band called "sharc" (Serving Him A Risen Christ) . It will be to try and reach out to the youth in the community to not only come to know and accept Christ but to actually get them to make a commitment to come to church and get involved in events instead of just saying that believe and then letting some of their peers talk them back into the things they know are wrong. It will be great...It starts at 5:30 eating and the band and services will start at 7...This and sing in the choir along with solos and life is simply, absolutely great. I wouldn't have it any other way.......God Bless you and yours.........

Congrats on becoming a deacon! You are such a blessing to this site with your wonderful spirit. It is so refreshing to have a man of faith share openly and give others encouragement and hope.

Your countdown is almost done- I know you are relieved to be near the end of it.

Thanks for being such a positive influence!

You're just a busy, busy man, and I admire you for it. I like to be involved in my church, too. Let me know how the band thing goes. Our youth minister at our church is thinking about trying to form a praise band with the youth.

We did the Beth Moore Bible study recently and it really is a good one. We will be starting a new bible study this Tuesday called The Pursiut of Holiness and I am looking forward to it. I really enjoy reading about your involvement in your church. I thank God for people like you who give of them selves so freely. You are an inspiration to the rest of us. God Bless You

Congrats Buzzard on being chosen by God and your final treatment! God is AWESOME! Now you can change your profile to reflect this good news!

How did the youth rally go?

Constipation: I noticed a little after each chemo and used Plum Smart. It gave me gas (uncomfortable) but did the trick within 12 hours. Now I'm eating high fiber crackers or raisin bran before the treatment to prevent it.

HEY, CONGRATS, MY FRIEND. Proud of you. However, I can fully understand why HE has chosen you for that position. You've helped so many with your wisdom, knowledge and most of all your caring concerns and encouragemen.

QUESTION: Did you or anyone else have problems with constipation? Hop is having problems...bowels haven't moved since Wednesday and we've tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions -- anyone???????????? I'm afraid he's going to get sick if something doesn't happen soon. Quite worried.

Blessings and hugs,

Marygale

Hi Marygale,

I have constipation during chemo treatment. What works for me is Miralax, twice a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. Also drinking prune juice with warm water helps. I usually have constipation for about two days. My first round of chemo was Folfox+Avastn, now I am on Folfiri + Avastin. I have had constipation with both regiments.

will do the trick when in small doses to keep from constipation over a period of 2-3 days but immediate relief...Only 1 thing brought me immediate relief in about 5 minutes. I drank 2 large glasses of Nestea with lemon that you can buy in 2 liters at the store...My stomach starting rumbling and whoooooooooooosh. It was all over...I don't know what it will do for you so your on your own there but it sure flushed me out in a hurry......Maybe a shot of Magnesium Citrate (easy out).....Good Luck.....

...........On another note the youth rally went great...There was a young man that had lost his brother to suicide last week and he was there and went to the altar and approx 50 of his friends joined him ....It was awesome........it was worth everything for that one moment watching God do His Glorious work.....There wasn't a dry eye in the House....He received several children to Him last night...We expected 2-300 kids and it ended up approx 60 but you know its the quality that matters not the quantity, the quality of the rally was extraordinary as was the band as were the kids. I am very proud of our youth, in fact all of the youth in America because whether we see it or not they have come to see what direction America is heading and they will save us all...God Bless all of His Children...and God Bless us all also............
