Has anyone heard from Thaxter? Alexandra?  What other regular posters are missing? Some people just quit but others disappear without warning. I don't like it.

I was thinking of him last month; he has not posted on Smart Patients in quite some time.

There is a thread about her in Ovarian Cancer forum.

I have been thinking about them lots too, Foxy.

In fact, I did some googling on Alexandra. She lives about 1 hour away from me. We were supposed to meet for coffee back in the spring, but that didn't work out. She has just kind of disappeared. No responses, no sign. I am praying she has gone of to Jamaica for some fun.

Hoping Thaxter is doing well, too.

Hugs

is having a tough time.  the last time any of us heard from her was late October.  Several of us on the uterine and ovarian boards have been trying to search her out and are very worried.

I haven't posted for a while, just wanted to forget about it since we lost Djinnie. I have been going through some issues myself, surgery on right femur - insertion of IM nail for prevention of fracture due to bone met. This was followed up with radiation to both femurs. Have recovered from the surgery which I have to admit was worse than the removal of my kidney!

Also have a brain met which is being monitored. No radiation at this stage as there appeared to be some shrinkage between MRI scans, which is great. Have been taking Sutent since January with some of the usual side effects which are being managed, but generally feel OK. Last scan in July showed shrinkage in most of my many mets. Another scan next week for re-staging. Fingers are crossed for further shrinkage or stability.

Best wishes to everyone!

Sue, Sue, Sue.. how I wish I knew you have been struggling. I would've been there for you; I would've taken some of your fears and anxiety, your pain and suffering so YOU, my dear would have more time, more energy and less suffering.

Let me do that now. I sit here alone, with nothing but time, patience and the gift of caring kindess.

Take my gift to you~ please!

Gentle Hugs, Jan

Sue:

so glad you returned to post and glad to hear that despite some issues, you are doing relatively well. 

I can understand the impact of losing DJ; it hit me hard. She fought so hard with humor and grace, supporting others until the end.

Darn, Sue, miss your posts and hope you will be back more frequently

Hello Sue,

We have missed you! I do understand avoiding this place since the loss of our dear Djinnie. She was an exceptional lady. A big loss for everyone here.

You seem to be managing all the (pardon my language) crap that keeps coming your way. So sorry that it keeps coming at you. But we are here for you whenever you need some support. Keep up that fight!!

Big hugs

Jojo

Thanks, Fox, for tracking this information down; Thaxter had an extreme aggressive cancer;he as such a positive person who gave this all he had and then some.

This is very sad news.

May he rest in peace

I never knew him  on this site but from the posts it sounds like the world just lost another great person.  This disease just takes and takes it is a sad day for all of us.

Thanks for your best wishes everyone. Your thoughts are much appreciated. CT shows general stability but a new 5mm lesion in my liver to join the many other small ones. Brain MRI last week shows unchanged lesion and radiation onc is happy to hold off on treatment. Happy to take that. All pretty good at the moment although did have several days of vomiting and pain in site of femur surgery but quickly recovered and wonder whether I had caught a bug that has been going around. 

I will continue my alternate 25mg/37.5mg Sutent dosage 2 weeks on 1 week off.

Fox, so sad to hear about Thaxter!  He was a great guy! Always positive!  I haven't seen many posts by Gary in a long time. I use to love his FRiday specials. As you now, Alexandra is having it rough. Since she posted last week she said she has the cancer just about all over her body. Thinking of a new trial, doesn't know where or when.  I also haven't seen Alice and Oneputt in a long while.

 

Suekub.  Glad you are mostly stable.  I think i posted to you on SmartPatients a few weeks ago. Did you already try to Nivolumab/Opdiva? Not sure?  Glad something started to work for you  Hugs!

It is very sad to hear about Thaxter. He certainly was a great example of positive attitude.

Rest in peace, dear Thaxter. You will be missed.

It is very hard to swallow this news. Some very good people have left us.

Hugs

Jojo
