Thanks. I'm glad of that, even though lack of support wouldn't change the decision.

Beating it, that's the plan. I don't know if I will or I won't. I'll just have to finish my chemo, have my surgery, then wait and see. Of course my fingers will be crossed, too.

No, she can't give up now, and she hasn't. Besides, she hasn't visited me yet.

I slept better last night with a little OTC non Benadryl help. I had to get up early for work yesterday so that helped, too. Plus Mrs Bob vacated the bed again. I'm having a little pain but nothing major. Just enough to start my hydrocodone again. I'm trying to get off it. Something is zapping my energy and I don't like it. Hopefully that will pass soon too.
Hey, I like your idea! Convert the beach condo into our own private nursing home, complete with onsite bar!

I'm glad your back is healing up OK, hopefully you'll be your old self soon. Let's also send up prayers for Magnus, he just had surgery on his back.

My dad's cancer, now that's it's recurrent, is no longer curable. The only thing that the doc can do is treat/control it. At some point there'll be no treatments left or my dad will say enough. How much sand he has in his hourglass I don't know - but I treat every day I have with him as gift - because it is.

You can beat this. If you decide that you've had enough, I'd understand, - but I'd be sad.

Matt

Silent_Runner, thanks.
I hate to hear that your dad's cancer is incurable, although I figured it was once it came back. It usually is at that point. I hope he's able to enjoy the time he has left and isn't in pain.

Thank you. But you never know, we could meet. You're not THAT far away from me. I've actually met about a half dozen GT'ers in state. The only state I've met more GT'ers from is Arizona. There's a chance I'll be traveling there soon and if I do, meeting more GT'ers.

I'm almost dome with my chemo, thankfully. It makes me feel so crappy I really don't think I could stand it much longer. Plus it seems like all the side effects I'm having just make my chest hurt worse. The nightmare still come calling most every time I fall asleep, and yes, I still get shot in my dreams. So does Greg, and other people.

I will support you in any future decisions. Would be tough, but,
I would, most likely, only agree to one round myself.

As for the traveling,.........you gotta let me know if you are headed through.
Kansas is on the way if you are driving.......

I think a lot of that decision would be based on how well you tolerated the chemo. Most people tolerate is better than me. My oncologist has commented more than once about hos bad it's affecting me, and has sent me to neurologists, etc, because some of my symptoms are so debilitating. She's also said that she's sure getting shot almost 4 years ago hasn't helped matters at all, because of all the effects that's had on me. Constant pain, severe insomnia, nightmares, trouble breathing, etc, all just make things worse.

Fraid driving is out of the question, especially a long drive like that. Because of my chest, I can only drive short distances, and the effects of the chemo are keeping me from being able to drive at all. That whole trip will be airplanes and taxi's for around towns. Tentative plans are for 3 stops, Mobile, Knoxville and surrounding area, and Phoenix. The flying part is going to hurt like all hell, but I need to be able to get out and just do something fun. Even if that fun is just drinking beer with GT'ers in 2 of those places and laying beside a hotel pool. And a tour of a few little mountains....

back.

BTW, I never agreed to even one round, if you catch my drift.....

I'm glad the chemo is almost over. I can only imagine how rough it has been on you.

Yeah, there's a lot of side effects I haven't even mentioned here. I know I've mentioned the dizzy spells and general feeling crappy, plus the shortness of breath. That combines with the trouble I have breathing because of my injury makes for a bad situation that most people going through chemo don't experience in quite the same way, luckily. It's cumulative, because I can't get enough exercise to even maintain the condition I'm in. I'm really hoping to reverse that once I finish chemo.

Another issue I'm having is nerve damage, that's common with Taxol. Unfortunately it's cumulative, too, and often doesn't go away. It's in my hands, worse in my right. Numb abd tingling, sometimes hard to use the hand. I'm REALLY hoping that'll get better after chemo. If not, I may go crazier than I already am.

Plus enough other crap going on that makes me think I'd rather get shot again than have to go through chemo again. Just counting the days until it's over. Then I'm thinking about going to Arizona to see some family and friends, with a couple stops on the way there. OK, I know Knoxville and Mobile aren't exactly on the way, but who cares.......

Sadly, no treatment for Her, they told Her 5-6 mos max.

Oh, I hope that goes away. I wish they could come up with a cure that doesn't almost kill the patient. I've heard that some things are in the works but haven't heard specifics.

You're welcome to stop by here, too. We have an airport and everything.

You have only heard about what she has posted here. You should also hear what she has to say to me! It has not been at all pleasant for her.

You had best not forget to visit me also. What will you be doing in Mobile?

I do hope the nerve damage subsides after you have finished this regimen. You are already crazy enough.:tongueout

feewrenchbndr I am so sorry to hear about your coworker. She will be in my prayers.

I have no problems with her comment. After all she did not agree to that round to her chest. I would not have agreed to it either.

Not always. Sometimes we fly out if DFW just to avoid our first flight being cancelled. The likelihood increases with the distance if our destination.

What's your airport code there? Can anything bigger than a Cessna land?

I sure hope they come up with better 'cures'. There's a good chance this won't cure me anyway.

Not a lot, I'm just going down because a friend of mine has to go and will drop me off there. I'll fly from there to Knoxville.

Yep, I've seen your posts.

I think a lot of us didn't catch what kind of "round" you were talking about. Now we're going "ohhhhhhhh".

Airport code here is ABI. We have a 10,000 foot runway, thank you very much. Regional jets. American Airlines only, though. You couldn't find a Delta flight into here, or DFW? Cause I know they fly into DFW. Me and the missus would be happy to meet you in DFW. Somebody small you want to meet lives there anyway.

I have a job interview on Thursday...2 days from now. It is with a company that I would LOVE to work for. I would appreciate prayers that God guides me to and through the interview. My gas tank is empty and I still don’t have insurance...so prayers that God will guide me to those resources. Also, I have been using a cane or walker since the injections and would like to not have that hinderance for the interview. I’m not sure what I can do to be under my own physical power unless God would bless me with strength to get through the interview without the cane.

Thank you so much for the prayers!!!
God bless you all. I am praying so hard that I can get this job!
