I want to thank True Brit for her interest. I have kept up on everybody and I really feel as you are my family. This has been a really bumpy ride over the last 5 years. I have had five surgeries and a million "it feels like it" hospital stays. I also suffer from epilepsy as well as hypercoagulation problems. I actually saw my new oncologist yesteday and he was upset at some test numbers. My regular oncologist moved to Oregon and thank God was able to help in November for my last surgery. The surgeon here refused to do the surgery and said it was over her head. I did fly to Oregon and have the surgery then my dad died a few weeks later so I put some things on hold and I called my oncologist in Oregon and let her know my latest symptoms and about some family history that my dad had kept from me and it was shocking and scary. She wanted a number of things done but my husband just had a total hip replacement and I wanted to make sure he was up and on his feet incase things went south. I had to explain to my new onc why I had waited so long. So needless to say and not to make this a GIANT story I have tests coming up and the doc was pretty frank on what he thinks. I kind have thought the same thing. I knew when I had the colon cancer before the doc told me. He is looking at liver and lungs. I am not going to worry until I have to. Right now this very minute until the tests prove otherwise I am ned. If the tests say something else you will all probably here the yell. I have watched all of you very brave and positive people go through some really tough things and still come out on top and that is my goal. I want to be like each and everyone of you. Mind you I am a giant coward. Thank you for reading this and all of the support.
Giant hugs to all, barb
p.s. Just to let you all know I am on a ton of seizure meds and I tend to ramble or sometimes write things that don't make sense. My brain is degrading with time. I am fortunate that I still know who I am. That is a joke. ha
