    You often ask questions which beg questions, but, you do not offer more than one answer. this is forcing others into defending the points you make for them, yes? i don't mean to be rude, but you could be nicer...

Latest Scan

by MaggieD on 10-19-17 at 01:07 PM
So I had my every three month scan Monday. Got the results yesterday. The way it works is that, if the lung nodule shows an increase in size, the immunosuppressant treatment stops. That leaves either nothing or back to extra-strength chemotherapy until THAT stops working.

As an aside, they sure are getting close with these immunosuppressant drugs. They’ve been working for me for four months. The chemo had STOPPED working, so this new therapy is sure moving in the right direction.

Saw Tom at his sister''s house today...

by MaggieD on 09-16-17 at 11:10 PM
So, Claudia, Tom's sister, had a BBQ today and invited me. I was happy to go and had told her that I had absolutely no problem with him being there. She loves her brother. Period. she didn't think he'd come. I thought he would because his daughter and her family were going to be there. I thought he'd come. He did.

i greeted him cordially, and later whispered in his ear that I thought it took guts. And it was the right thing to do. He was visibly moved. It was a kind of closure.

If I could wave a magic wand...

by MaggieD on 09-15-17 at 04:42 PM
...I would give all people the gift of realizing when it's raining outside. And to ask for what you need.

A long time ago, a friend who was an Admittance Coordinator at a nursing home told me this story she always used when talking to the adult children of a parent when they found out how much the nursing home was going to cost a month...

"Look, your parents saved all of their lives for a rainy day. Let's face it. It's pouring outside right now."

I don't hate Tom

by MaggieD on 08-22-17 at 04:34 PM
Just thought I'd put that out there. And my confrontation with Bubba was unfortunate. I am not unhappy. When I read his post, I PMd him to see if he was kidding or serious. "Serious" was his only reply. So I had at him. As I said, unfortunate.

I forgive myself this kind of outburst because I know I'm dealing with a terminal illness. I think I'm dealing with it very well. And, if you can believe it, I'm busy and happy. I try not to think about what the future holds, because
