Living With Cancer Linda and Susan

 
  • I don't usually do this but....It occurs to me that for each and every one of you on my friends list, I catch myself looking at your pictures, sharing jokes and news, as well as support during good and bad times. I am also happy to have you among my friends. We will see who will take the time to read this message until the end. If you appreciate your friends from all over the world, go ahead and copy this into your status too, even if it's just for a minute. I'm going to be watching to see who takes care of the friendship, just like me. Thank you all for being a part of my life.

Hi Linda OMG how scary that must have been. What happen how do you know when you have cardiac arrest?   Great that the fibrillate is working. How is Brian holding up?
 
I am moving out of my home, we are moving to the city. When i  found out I had excess fluid around my brain, which has been removed, but will likely come back. I decided I wanted to move to the city, Main  Strauss Village  which is right across the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati. We can walk across the bridge and be in down  town Cincinnati. The house is right smack dab in the middle of Main Strauss Village.
There is always something going on lots of shops and pubs, festivals all summer and fall.. People our age having fun. This is my new goal to have fun!. The last thing I needed was a  neurological problem!  I acted like I had a combining of  Parkinson  and I stroke. . So this Dr. is a Nuro-oncolgist who is at UC hospital who is working with my oncologist! LOL all these Dr's.  So I am no longer shaking and can carry on a conversation.
 
I feel great !  What is your prognosis  with your heart?

Hey Sue, 
Well we made it to retirement. He seems to think the fibrillate is working great and since i got it in Geneva it is not even approved yet in this country. Has all the bells and whistles. more than I need. You have no idea you just fall and by the time i hit the cobblestones my heart had stopped. It was stopped for 25 minutes and i am driving again and starting to work out next week. i am doing great. The place you are moving to sounds really neat. you are going to have  a great time. Can they keep taking the fluid out? You know we just enjoy life until..... That is what I have been doing and sounds like you are also. Are you coming to Fl this year? With congestive heart failure i can't take the heat real well but even Brian says I never did. I don't use any oxygen and that is just weird to the Dr's but I am not even going there. I am fine and so are you. Today  I woke up and put my feet on the floor. I just say thank you god for another day. Take care and keep in touch. let me know how your doing

Linda so it took them 25 minutes to revive you? Do you remember any of this. 25 Minutes?  Did you see any lights or that you died. Girl you are a miracle you have recovered from this twice. Amazing, You are so strong. I am so happy you survived this. I am proud of you you just keep fighting.

I will be good also if it builds up again they do another spinal tap and will do them as often as needed. As long as there are a couble of months in between. The worst thing that could happen is I may need.  A shunt. Depends on the pressure around my brain. Which is now 16 it should be 5 so it is a bit high , over 20 is dangerous high. The good thing is we now know what to look for. Linda I could not even carry on a conversation.  But I am back up and fighting. The two of us are fighting together;) xo  sue

Remember when we were 12 and we used to go to the skating rink then walk to your house. I remember Paul Anka and Fabian on the walls. I know we drove both of our parents nuts. Of course we fight. That is our generation never give up. Just remember feet on floor thank you god for another day. 
Keep in touch.
Love, Linda xoxox

IT WORKED !!!!!!

 
 
Guess what? The procedure has worked -  immediately my speech was better, my hands shake some. but are much better. So one day at a time. The lab reports will be in just a few days and I am sure they will find out why this has happened. Thank you everyone for your support as I have traveled this very long journey. Now Peter and I are ready to follow this our life path we are going to make the most of retirement! 
 
   
I feel fabulous, I woke up this morning and realized my brain is back to normal. I sketched a sign for the gallery I am going to open in Main Strasse Village. Where we bought our new home.  "Fiber Art Gallery". I am so excited  ! I have two  friends that want to co-op and sell their good. A photographer who has some of her work in Ashland KY ,also   a knitter, jeweler and button maker. We will also have luxury hand knitted  items for sale along with fiber arts projects. Kathy is going to be a partner - searching salvage yards, second hand stores, yard sales for antiques and treasures.
 
The Worlds Largest Yard Sale - starts 8/1  it starts/ends one block away  from  our house and starts some where in Alabama..
 Everybody have a great day:)

If a woman has been diagnosed with a simple breast infection, and that infection does not improve quickly (in a week or less) when treated with antibiotics, then the possibility of cancer should be considered.
