Gavin, that was funi! BUT I don’t have the adorable baby Great Grandson she has! Actually my baby Grandson is 17 today and he is a Prince to me.August 20, 2013 at 5:56 pm #74795gavinModerator
You’ve got a bigger medical entourage than the Queen has!August 20, 2013 at 1:54 pm #74794
Hi. That is what happened with our ONC. Teddy had him for his 5 1/2 years with CC then I had him for less than a year and he retired. I actually had tears that he was retiring…in front of him even though I found it extremely hard to go to his office after T passed.
I always say these are the Golden Years they just need a little polishing now and then!August 20, 2013 at 1:19 pm #74793chezwrightaol-comParticipant
Not a diet at all…….just some delicious recipes….I am not a cook..but there are favorites of mine in these books that I repeat over and over and convince myself I am eating healthily. It’s such an effort to alter diet habits!!!
You certainly have your entourage of doctors! The only one I went to faithfully, who saved my life, is moving to Texas (why???). He and his wife have no children but he certainly has given life to many, many. I have two friends who go to him also and we say we are going together on a yearly escape to Texas to see him.
I hope this week goes by without a hitch and you are back feeling a great deal better. I am with you on the aging process. I keep thinking this is just a temporary condition and I’ll be right back with healthy knees and straight back and no problems at all!August 20, 2013 at 2:04 am #74792
Thanks Kathy, I posted tonight what the “therapy” is going to be and what the GI saw. I read some books a long time ago when Teddy had his CC but between my UC and Diabetes II there is so little now that I can eat I can’t wrap my head around one more type of diet. I tell you growing older is not all its cracked to be. So, I have 5 DOCs. Endocrinologist, ONC, GI, GP and a Cardiac…just because. I told them all how do they think I have time to meet a nice man (for companionship) when they all keep me so busy!August 20, 2013 at 1:45 am #74791chezwrightaol-comParticipant
After reading this, I am wondering how today has gone. You are such a support for all, that you deserve all the support you are getting. Reading about the eating, i am wondering if you have a copy of “Beating Cancer One Bite at a Time” and “The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen” both by Rebecca Katz. Amazing recipes and the latter has lots of information about foods for combatting nausea, fatigue, etc. The base of many is a broth she calls “Magic Mineral Broth”. I feel healthier just smelling it cooking in the kitchen!
We are all thinking of you and are there in spirit.

coming to this late – I’m sorry. But I’m glad to see you’ve rallied and got the support you needed. What goes around comes around.

Ha, Ha not the special ones! Ugh! Wait, if ate those I wouldn’t need the Prep!Prep coming up in 2 hours and again at 4AM. The good part is Robin and I will go for brunch!August 18, 2013 at 9:36 pm #74787kris00jParticipant
Fingers, toes and everything else crossed for good results!! I will send you some egg rolls if you want. Maybe I can find someone out here to ake them special just for you?? Lol
Love you,August 18, 2013 at 8:14 pm #74786
Thanks, Laura, I read both articles you sent and I am already down to not eating much at all. I have cut out meat, fried, and most veggies upset my stomach can’t even eat rice or pasta anymore. Have also cut out bread. Being a type 2 Diabetic I also don’t eat sugar. I love veggies but every time I try big upset the next day. Cannot do any type of bean, corn peas. I am big on chicken and turkey and baked potatoes. I also had to cross tuna salad off my list the tuna really is upsetting me. Will know more tomorrow after the colonoscopy. I am feeling better about the Remicade as I am hearing some things about it that are very good. One weird thing is I have never had pain. Thank goodness for that. Thanks for your concern, update after the test.August 18, 2013 at 7:46 pm #74785laurkcpParticipant
Private message me. My husband is in the pharma industry and knows a lot about Remicade. I know he would be happy to talk to you.
I also learned a lot about auto-immune diseases and a plant based diet. Remove meat and dairy from your diet and you will definitely feel the effects.August 18, 2013 at 1:50 pm #74784
Thanks all of you. I do feel better, funny to be on the other side of this Board, funny but wonderful! Not starting the Remicade just yet. Colonoscopy tomorrow and the GI guy is calling the Insurance Company to get it all set up. Since I am already into Catastrophic on the Insurance for this year I am thinking that the first 3 Infusions will be less than if not in catastrophic. Thanks again I feel so much better about the whole thing.August 18, 2013 at 1:45 pm #74783
Gavin, no, sorry, I was referring to the 1st game in a shut out with the Cardinals, the team here in Phoenix. Well T always used to say he who draws first blood looses. Mmmm not sure where that came from but he used it anyway!August 18, 2013 at 8:30 am #74782iliasMember
sorry to heat about your illness…i am sending good thoughts and wishes from far away.
