    I do have malignant cancer.

    It started in my right adrenal gland, spread to my liver where a tumor was formed, and the spread to my lungs.

    I start chemo on the 28th.

    At the moment the focus is on my liver, the tumor is massive ... whereas the cancer nodules on my lungs are minimal in comparison. My oncologist says that the chemo should zap all of those cancer cells, and put the cancer in remission in my lungs.

    However, my liver is in serious condition. The tumor has taken over 65% of my liver, and I'm damn lucky that I not riddled with infections, since the liver filters out all toxins in the body. The goal is to shrink the tumor and then keep it maintained.

    He said there is no cure, which we all know, and the only thing he can do is to prolong my life by keeping the cancer in remission, and the tumor reduced.

    The prognosis depends on how my body responds to the chemo treatments. If my liver shrinks and the other cancer cells go into remission, then I have a good 5 years. If my liver doesn't respond to treatments and they can't get it reduced ... then I won't make it through the summer, probably only a month or so. Because once my liver becomes severely compromised further, then I will be unable to fight off any illness, even a common cold or the flu could do me in.


    So, just letting everyone know that if I suddenly stop posting, then you'll know why. I won't close the account down. I'll just vanish one day. When it gets to the point where I cannot even post any longer, then I'll update everyone so they know the end is near.


    Happy trails, everyone ...... I'll see you all on the other side. In the meantime, if a ghost is haunting the treetrunk out of you and you know you've been a bleep and deserve it ..... yep, that would be me still kicking your ass.

    You know, even if we don't have a good repertoire, I wouldn't wish cancer on my worst enemy.

    I hope you are able to come up on top of this, and a long, fulfilling life.

    Stay positive and stay strong.

    I've witnessed how chemo can really weaken a person, both in mind and body.

    But positivity helps. Let's hope that after the chemo treatment, remission isn't too far away.

    I know, this is a worry for me. I've been told that it takes a couple days to fully recoop from just one treatment .. just be having another one.

    My poor hubby, he will have to keep the house and animals going ...... but, I'm very strong willed (who knew, lol) ... and a little fatigue and nausea isn't going to do this old bird in.

    I've watched too many loved ones battle cancer - it's not for the faint of heart. Luckily for you, you're not exactly faint of anything

    You don't need sympathy, but my thoughts are with you and your family

    I am glad you seem to be at peace with it
  • Lots of love to you P.

    I wonder if you're a little excited? You often talked about leaving this world.

    Hope it works out just the way you want.

    Jesus. You have my thoughts and best wishes.
    You're one of the few constants on this site I enjoy.
    But on your last paragraph....if you apply half the toughness to it that you give on your responses here, that cancer is going to curl up in a ball and take the first ship bound for Antarctica.
    Kick it in the ass!

    You know I'm very fond of you too, Shell.

    And yes, I am becoming excited about the prospect that death is near at hand. I've been ready to check out of here for quite some time. I simply cannot wait to move on to my next level of existence.

    In fact, my husband and I are going to sit down this weekend and plan out how we are going to break up housekeeping, plan on downsizing his living arrangements, figure out what to do with all of my animals. I mean, we are literally preparing for this ... and it's thrilling for me.

    It's not a secret that I don't like people very much, nor this world. Finally, I get to get rid of this damn meat suit, and become another being.


    It means a lot to me that you know this, it means you paid attention. So, I guess there must be some ego left in me afterall smile

    If chemo ends up working, will you live longer than 5 years. I heard a positive attitude and healthy exercises can help you alot

    The 5 year survival rate is only about 33% for my condition. But, 5 years is good enough for me.
