I hear you got through the surgery but the pain monster is still sitting on your tummy. Wish I could chase him away for you. Just know that I'm thinking of you, sending you hugs (very gentle ones). h..u..g..   irene

HI Judy,
I should have mentionned too that I used biotene mouth wash as a preventative things while on doxil.  The first round I got a small mouth sore so I used it thereafter and never had a problem.  For the skin being dry I used a product called aquafor.  It was great.  What do you think the problem with your small intestine is?

Hi Judy.  You had many of us concerned, so, I was really glad to see your recent comment, although, not happy that you had to be hospitalized.  I hope you feel better real soon.  Take care.  Angie

Judy,
Wow, those kids would have worn me out. I can hardly do a day with my granddaughter, who is 3. I love her but she totally wears me out. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Jax. I read your journal and commented on there. I am sorry to hear that it has risen. I do hope it is from stress and not that the treatment has stopped working. I will continue to pray for you and you let me know your results in 3 weeks, ok?
I go next week to get my stitches removed from my skin cancer, see a new gyn, and also go to Shands for the gastro doctor visit. I hope to start getting answers soon. Broken toe still so sore and can't wear shoes. I read on the internet it takes 4 to 8 weeks to recover, ridiculous!
Many hugs,
Colleen

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. HI Judy, wondering how you are doing? Everything ok? I haven't talked to you in awhile. Hot as hell, isn't it? I was so nervous about that Hurricane, but glad it turned north. Hope no more come this way!
Many hugs,

!My tomatoes started off slow also. I did not get them planted until June. But they have taken off and are now begining to get covered with tomatoes. Oh, now if they would just start to ripen! There is nothing better tan tomatoes fresh off the vine. I did pick the biggest mess of green beans. Actually my girlfriend picked most of them as the bending over is hard on me. So after chemo today and tomorrow, my granddaughter and I are going to start snapping them. YUCK. Then I need to get them canned. We have got about a large paper grocery sack as full as you can get it so we have a lot of snapping to do. I wasn't expecting that, they did much better than I thought they would. I would guess that your tomatoes will pull out of it and be ok. I know mine were very slow at the start.

  For some reason we have had a mild summer here in Illinois. Normally it is so hot that canning is a chore, but this year it will not be too bad. We have not had the heat and humidity that we normally have so it will almost bwe enjoyable. It will also give me something to do that will not completely wear me out. LOL

At lease DIL's liver seems 'up' for surgery. And she's going to Mayo clinic Monday. See my journal - I've written quite a lot there.  Thanks for caring.

Just a quick note to say hi! I am wondering how you are doing and hoping that you feel better. I will be gone when you back to the doctor, but shoot me a note and let me know what he says! I will read it when I get back. We are going to CA for about 8 days to see our sons.
Hope today is a good day for you,

Thank you for everything! I appreciate the kind words, notes, and well wishes. I am happy to report the cancer is still in remission. Feel bad with the blockage, adhesions, surguries, and now abdominal wall hernia. but it is better then hearing ovca back. Infection is finallly cleared up in my lungs, and hopefully the new issues will not need anymore operations. Hope you are keeping well yourself? looking forward to meeting all in Chicago this fall.

Hi Judy,  I've been out of commission for the past few months.  My cancer has returned and spread throughout my upper abdomen with spots next to liver & Esophagus.  I had my 1st treatment of Doxil last Mon. but having a severe reaction to it.  A rash has developed all over my chest, back, shoulders, neck and creeping up on my face.  I'm turning into THE BLOB!!!  Other than the rash, a terrible headache and the biggest Jelly Belly I've ever been privvy to, I'm doing quite well.  My b'day is July 14 and my San Diego daughter has business in San Francisco July 21 & 22. She will fly into Sacramento to see me before her trip, and if I can handle it, I will drive with her to S.F. and we'll have some good quality time together over there. Take care and let me know how you are doing.  Hugs,  Dee

Hi Judy,
Friday I get the last of this 3 round of Topo.  I like to think it's doing something but...  Belly is soooo big, my lung seems to be filling up again too.  Went out for dinner with former coworkers last night.  Had to try not to laugh too hard, it makes me cough.  Of course everybody says, "You look so good!"  Did you read Pink's entry about her mom?  Sounds like Doxil could be the ticket, at least for awhile.
As always,
Sharon

You deserve a big bear hug! I wish I could hug you in person. I wrote on your journal also. I hate that your CA125 went up but I am praying it was due to the port infection and hasn't had a chance to come down all the way yet. I know it will.  I hope that the 4th round will be easier on you and do the darn job it is supposed to do.  If not, then the Doxil will just have to step up to the plate!!! Always thinking of you. Let me know how you do and when you get the new CA results too. I am bad on remembering days so just send me a message, ok?
Love you,
Colleen

Hi Judy,
Interesting article you posted.  Was wondering how you are doing.  I feel a whole lot better after having the thoracentisis done, 1.5 liters came out of my right lung and I can breathe!!

The CAT scan sounds like it will be easy: drink some stuff, get scanned, go home. Mostly it's her complaints about pain. She's now on the 4th type of pain pill. Says they don't help at all. That's scary. Yet she seems cheerful and chatty. I just don't know what to think.   irene

I'm just hanging in there with my Mom. I just can't tell how bad her pain is, what's real and what's a cry for attention. I'm an only child so no siblings or even aunts and uncles to help. She has one sister still living but she's in Arizona, too far away and she's even older than my Mom. Thank goodness my husband is real involved and takes care of all the physical things around the house for her. He usually does the daily phone calls too since I tend to be the "ears" for her when we visit. 5-7 hours of listening to her can be tiring. But some day I may be in her shoes. I hope not but who knows. Thanks for thinking of me.  irene

The radiologist is also recommending surgery but did say there is a clinical trial that I may qualify for, if the surgeon says no. It's sorenefib (?) and radiation. There is so much riding on my appointment on Tuesday...I swear, if this cancer doesn't kill me the stress of it all will!
Thanks for thinking of me...I'll be sure to post after Tuesday's meeting.
Love ya,

Hey Judy! Thanks for the note...I noticed on Facebook that Deandra was leaving today to go to Hawaii, so I thought it would be good to post a note for her. Nothing new with me...I had my MRI yesterday in Toronto and I go tomorrow to meet with the gynecological radiation oncologist back in Toronto again - lot's of long drives these days! Hope things are well with you...take care!
Love Becky xx

Trudi just mentioned that being low on potassium, sodium and magnesium can cause pain. That gives me something to work with.
I do get tired, whine like a baby. I feel kind of bad complaining in a journal when so many others have more difficult circumstances. So I try to keep my vents down to a rare event. Thank you for listening and the support. In my heart I know being there for my Mom is the most important thing I can do. She won't be with me forever. But it is tiring at times. Still, when she's gone, I'll rest easy knowing that I brought some joy into her life. She keeps saying how much better she feels when we visit, how much she laughs when we're around. That's a good thing. Thank you again.  irene
