I think more than one buddy is all right don't you?

Hugs,

good idea but difficult to implement...

I am hoping that even though folks have not responded directly to this thread, the idea has prompted them to put a 'second in charge' be it one of us here or a family member who will post if there is a need.

Honestly, I think I'm left out...or at least, I have no idea what you guys are talking about as "buddy list"? Hm? What happens when people pick a "buddy"? If I can choose, I'd choose Buzzard, if he is OK with that...he helped me so much back when I was in a battle with cancer...[I failed...they won....] Anyway, what is this whole buddy list thing is, anyone? o.O

Love to ya Sophie.........and Sophie, we never fail, we just sometimes don't win.....but if we did through failure grows knowledge and through knowledge grows intellect, and through intellect grows the mind of a young woman that someday I know will be the scientist that cures cancer, you know why ? because she never quit when things didn't go her way, she made a promise that I will bet my house on that she will deliver on. She will be great someday, and I will as others in here will have the honor and privelage to say that she is our friend. Oh how Moms gonna smile with that one...oh yeah shes watching every move Sophie. You can count on that.....Love to you sweetheart and you know where Uncle Buzz is when ya need him...Merry Christmas missy.......Buzz

This is a good idea, but it does contain one problem that none of us can ever predict.

What happen when our "buddy" gets too sick and does not respond to emails or phone calls?

Eric38 and I tried to be each other's advocates back when I joined the board...it worked ok for awhile. I went to see him in the hospital and would report if he wanted me to and could not. And he visited me in the hospital and kept everyone updated as well.

Then one day, Eric started to get very sick and our communication stopped. I knew he was fighting very hard with his treatments - and sometimes he would get a post out to you guys and I'd think that was great.

But there were times when he was too weak to return a PM or return a phone call - when that happens the buddy system will not function.

And all of us can be in such a difficult health situation at any moment. Rushed off to hopsitals, emergency surgeries, just taking a break from cancer, or whatever...

So, perhaps in conjunction with this, it's a real good to have a good member of your family or a close friend that could do this for you, as they see you in person on a more daily basis.

Sorry, I think I hold the record for last picked on the dodge ball teams. (honestly, I swear, I would watch where I walked so I wouldn't step on an ant and hurt it, and they wanted me to throw a ball, on purpose, to hurt someone??? just couldn't do it)

Okay, so maybe we need to report in/role call -- calling all lurkers, state what stage you are in and what state you live in. And we will then pair up. I can do a spread sheet.

I'll take a buddy, but I agree with Craig that we need to have a family member or friend armed with password info and such to be able to come in and report if something happens to us. I'm one of those people who HATES to lose contact with people in my life, and I hate thinking that one of our friends here might be gravely ill or have passed away, and we just never know what happened.

I spelled it out along with my other important wishes...like throwing the BIGGEST party possible with my life insurance money....no tears allowed!!!!

Also, my daughter, who was my caregiver, knows to do this if I am sick.

GREAT idea!!!

Nice solution Craig, but my problem with it, is that I don't let my children or husband see the heartache, the soul wrenching feelings that I share with you all.
It took a lot of agonizing to decide to even tell my children I had cancer, then it took longer to mention the word terminal.
I tend to be the same ole' me, go getter, nothing will kill me, person. I'm the glue that holds it all together, so they don't get to see my sorrows or pains. Just you lucky ones here!!! (LOL)
I'm afraid to let them see how to get on here (oh by golly, they know I have you all, they just don't know the web site etc.)or the name of the website, so they don't see.
Which is why, when I go to surgery, there's no one to let you know how I'm a doing. Other then that, it's a great solution I think for most of everyone on here.

You must, MUST, figure out a way to update us. You must have some sense of how important you are to this group.
Pick someone and PM them with a phone #, email - something to keep us connected.

Roger, do you have a buddy yet? I thought maybe we could be NC buddies. If you've already been "taken," no hurt feelings.

I got mouthy with Winter Marie earlier and I am now in charge of keeping everyone up to date with news of her surgery on the 20th. I'm pretty sure this is going to be a two person job so I hope you can help. LOL

Hell, I taught the scary old woman how to post. That is how she told you all I was home this week.

She reads these post and gets a kick out of them. She loves it when the women on the board get on my butt. It also helps her in seeing how I am doing compared to the others in the group. Bottom line, it gives her hope and she has as much need of that as I do.

I might be a crazy old coot, but she wants me to stick around a few more years to keep her in firewood.

How about picking someone here to give your hospital info to (Name, city, phone number, surgery date).
Then that person can call after your surgery to check on you. I know the staff is not allowed to give info, but hopefully you will feel up to answering in a day or two.

If there is no one you prefer, PM me with the info. I have unlimited long distance so it is no extra cost to make the call.

Hugs,

The other Marie

Thank you so much for you thoughtfulness Marie.

I have unlimited long distance so phones calls, even from the east coast to there don't cost any more.

Would be honored to be your buddy.

Lori, I think you and Crow71 (roger) are stuck with me. I think the wonderful thing about this, is we can have two or more. So I'll share!!! But consider yourself watched over, by the one, the only, Winter Marie. LOL (I visit Vegas a lot, well, at least 3 times a year)

I would be glad to pair up with a buddy.

I'm stage IV now. Will be starting chemo again Jan 4th.
Had 2 lesions in liver show up on PET/CT last month and
a couple of nodes lit up in area between my lungs and
behind my heart also. That sounded a little scary to me.
Feeling fine at the moment, but am sure that will end in
January.

So anybody else in Ohio?

Hi Lori,

That's fine too. Someone way up above there in the posts someone mentioned it would be nice to pair people up in the same state, so I was just hoping. As I read down through the posts I see Cheryl is kinda new like me and more of a lurker too, if she still needs someone maybe we would work as buddies. I can get along with anyone, well almost anyone, lol. So whoever needs a buddy.

Please try to PM Cheryl and let her know that you're interested in being her buddy. I know you both are new and looking to connect with a buddy. I'm not sure how often she reads so give it a try. You can PM by going to the brown section on the left and clicking on CSN Email. Once in the email section at the bottom it says write a new message. Click on that and send her an email. I've exchanged phone numbers so maybe you guys can too. Good luck, and if you don't get a response let me know.

No problem. Get some rest if you're not feeling well. I got 2 buddys myself ... so I'm covered. See if those of us who get picked last pick each other ... we spoil the system! HA! HUGS to you.

OK anyone who still needs a buddy ... speak up so we can get some matches going.

To use the PM just go over to the left side of the page and click on CSN Email. At the bottom of the section there is a button that says write a new message. Just to get you started I will PM you for practice.
