You deserve a big bear hug!  Haven't heard from you in awhile. I hope you are ok, just busy and having a good day! I am doing ok, have to have knee surgery and an MRI on my shoulders (rotator cuff injuries) but otherwise, life is good. The kids are well and Jerry is still a great husband. I can't ask for more, although I would like to be healthy LOL
Hope to hear back from you!
Hugs,
Colleen

Thank you very much.  It truly was a devasting blow, kept having this weird feeling, but would just brush it off, saying that I was letting my mind run too much, and I was reading too much on the internet the last couple weeks.  This is really that last thing we ever expected.  The docs says, hey it's small, looks like no lymphs nodes involved, expect the biopsy to confirm.  I mean I am literally numb.  Thanks for the support.

Just a quick note to say hi! Angie, was just wondering how you are doing?  I am okay, tired but with all the work traveling I think it is starting to get to me.   Our weather is starting to turn colder and the leaves are beginning to turn.  It is beautiful with all the colors, but I think Spring is my favorite time of year. How about you, what is your favorite time? I guess there is something that I like about all 4 seasons.  Anyway write when you get a chance, Love, Dawnlyn

Hi Angie, I didn't get a PM, but someone else told me that too, so I must have something wrong. Last week sometime, my computer got hacked so maybe it was during that time and now everything is fine. Send it to me again if you want. I am ok, still dealing with my knee and shoulder. Will call the doctor this week I guess. Hope you are doing well? What all has been going on???
Sending you hugs,
Colleen

Hi Angie, I am just going to try and post the question to her.  I am just not reading it that way, it specifically says that 75% occur with in the first two years and 90% occur at 5.  It would be different if she said "you have a 75% and 90% chance of it not reoccuring.  I've never seen those type of stats before on a stage 1.  I've always gotten good feedback from my docs, but I just had someone die at Stage 1C, but they did not have chemo, etc, and they were not clear cell, so I know her situation is different.  I've just done some reading, and I probably shouldn't of, and it was just wasn't very positive.  I know there isn't a crystal ball, but come on ;/  I do my checks up faithfully and that's all I can do really.  Thanks---  Jane

I just saw your post in the Ask the Doctor Forum, and it was alittle unnerving Don't you think?, 90% have re-occurrences in 5 years?  I wonder if that is due to Clear Cell or due to us women being understaged?  It just king of made my stomach turn for some reason.  I thought reaching this 5 year mark was such a great thing, but I keep reading more and more, that maybe with this disease it's just the luck of the draw?  Take Care ~  Jane

Wow just saw your post under the Ask The Doctor Forum, those statistics are a bit unsettling don't you think? 90% at the 5 years?  Kind of made my stomach turn.  I wonder if this is due to clear cell diagnosis or just understaging?   Jane

Hi Angie,
Thanks for the note. It was a busy week, my son was here from CA and I haven't had much time on the computer. It was also my mom's 80th birthday and we had a party.  I would hate to give up bread myself. Love all kinds but it is not kind to me, so that is something I am working on, giving up bread, all white stuff, sugar,....all the things I love LOL but need to lose weight and cholesterol way high.  I am glad though that the coffee break went well and you raised money for OVCA.  How did you advertise and how much did you cook? That is something I could do but don't really know how to go about it? Would you let me know when you get a chance? Thanks!!! Sorry for the gloominess :(    We are full of sunshine but HOT, HOT, HOT! I hate it and can't wait to move!
Hugs,
colleen

Is this the same crazy sister you had fun with the last time? I hope so!! Sounds like she and you have a great time together and you need some fun time. How is your diabetes?
Well, the meds are helping. The Gabapentin completely took away the feelings from my peripheral neuropathy and the Savella seems to be helping with the fibro. I twisted my knee and it is very painful. Going to doc this week for that and  my shoulder pain, which I thought was fibro, but now think I injured it months ago - it's constant and has been going on for so long. Other than that, tired alot, but the meds cause that too so will just live with it.
Yes, scorching out here, 96 but a heat index of 107!!!! I don't even go out if I can help it, but have to today!
Otherwise, how are you?
Hugs,
colleen

Just a quick note to say hi! I was wondering how your tooth is feeling?  I hope you are getting better.  Me I am feeling better just tired all the time.  My nerves are starting up since I go Monday for CT scan.  You know how that is with the usual anxiety feelings that come with the testing, waiting....etc.  I did take a trip to New York....Was very nice, I would not want to live there but it is an exciting city. I just got back yesterday....So that could be why I am so tired, lol.....I did a lot of walking....I will have to try to post some pictures once developed.  It was sort of a mini vacation....Well I better go break time at work almost over.  I will write more later....Love, Dawnlyn

Hi Angie,
Mel is still in hospital, as you can imagine she only has a few moments when she feels up to posting. It's very hard, as because I was caught very early, I almost feel guilty asking her how shes going, as she gets quite defensive, which is totally understandable. I know she feels like the medical profession has let her down, as we all know how hard and long she tried to get anyone to understand, that her symptoms weren't normal!!!!! She tried to tell them for so long, and in her case they used her age against her, thinking they knew better. I will send her a message now, but she is on alot of morphine, but as long as she knows we all care, and her life does matter,
take care,
Maurita

You deserve a big bear hug! Angie, I am so sorry about your tooth - oh, just reading it sounds so painful. I can't believe it! I will pray that it continues to heal and that you will be free of pain. Who wants to look like the elephant man anyway LOL
Thanks for your comments on the pictures. We had a wonderful time, so relaxing and just being together w/o all the stress here at home. It was nice. That is where we will retire in 3 years - not that cabin but that area, and I can't wait!
Hope you feel better today,
Sending hugs,
colleen

Just a quick note to say hi!

My CA125 at it's worst the day they discovered my tumor was 30,all thru out surgery, and chemo my number has always been between 3.5 and 7.0.  I am now at the point where I get that test done and a PET/CT once per year.  I can't say I am not always nervous in between and waiting for the results of each of these test.  I always feel like something is lurking, but have to believe that it was caught early and I will keep up on all my follow ups, and keep my fingers crossed.  Good to talk to you, keep in touch.  Take Care!!  Jane
