Thanks for your kind words and support. I got out of the hospital today after about a 4 week combined stint. Life is looking up.
I am meeting with the oncologist sometime next week. I will continue to push for surgery. I dont understand the reasons they have said no. I will also push for radiation. My main doctor is not being aggressive as I like, but then again it is up for the oncologist to decide so I will put a fire under that bottom once we meet.
I am eating now, which is good. Though I still feel a little queasy. I need to concentrate on calories, not nutrition...or so said the dietician. She asked me how I felt about eating oil! She meant over vegetables or on a salad but the language breakdown gave me visions of drinking oil.
Hans has been great and my dad has became cat sitter extrodinaire. I have so little pain from my surgery that all the coughing and sneezing I am doing from having a cold hasnt triggered any pain. Life is good.
Thanks again for your good thoughts (but keep them coming please).
And Sue...I am very aware I fell off the cancer buddy bandwagon and I will strive to do better in the future.
Cancer is a word, not a sentence.
