I had my upper chest baseline CT scan and also a bone scan last week. The results for the bone scan were not ready for my Friday doctor's appointment. We did not have a previous CT of the upper chest, so it was not any big surprise when they found more tumors in my upper lungs. BUT we did get some great news!!! The tumors in my lower lungs have decreased in size. The nurse lady was shocked that they shrunk when the only cancer treatment I have done so far was the removal of my ovaries. This tells me that my alternative medicine is doing its job. The largest tumor in my lungs is one on the right lower lobe (the kidney one is the biggest), which was previously 2.7cm x 1.4cm x 1.7cm. That one has shrunk to 2.1cm x 1.5cm x 9mm. All of the lower lobe tumors have shrunk!! Needless to say, this news has done wonders for my optimism!!! It also gives me hope that we will not need to discuss chemo after the January scans. I am all for a little chemo in early stage cancers, but not in late stage. There is research that shows that patients who refused chemo lived four times longer than those who had chemo. If the tumors start increasing again, well then I might consider some of this new targeted chemo. I will get the results next week for the bone scan. I was so tickled after that news that nothing could get me down Friday night! Saturday was spent in bed! LOLOL I was just worn out from two days of running for the scans and appointments. I am determined to beat the odds!
@Imposter - Sounds like you are doing better?
@Big Steve – Thanx for the laughs.
Has anyone heard about the yellow pink salmon on the Pacific coast? They also have yellow heart parts, gill arches, and have swollen spleens and spotted livers, yummy! http://enenews.com/biologist-finds-pink-salmo...
Glad to see you posting again! It's been a while since I've been on topix too. I'm happy to hear that your cancer is regressing and I hope it continues. We have a lot to talk about about with regard to current world affairs and maybe we can resume our talks like old times. Have you been watching Revolution?

@OhioJeepGirl: Youve really been through a lot. My prayers go out for you. I'm assuming your alternative treatment involves a strict diet. Hang in there , girl!

*sigh* well. Guess I'll be headed to eastern KY tomorrow. I'll be turning due south at Winchester and headed towards pikeville. Just found this out about an hour ago. AW: as I drive by hand me a yummy plate of that good food ! Actually it'll probably be a sausage burrito and dr pepper from the drive thru! Lol

Good night everyone!

@ OJP, Sounds to me like your alternative approach is working;) I am very pleased for you to make such progress.
Between your Salmon story and AW's simple delights of yesterday, I will be making some challah bread tomorrow. More blessings being sent your way:)
Nice evening.
You always bake the most delicious sounding breads! I really should send you a dozen or so of the cookbooks I've collected because you would get some use from them! At my house they just collect dust!!! Lol

@ Anne, So far challah bread has been the easiest to make. German pumpernickel turns out a bit hard which scares me. I notice how Americans incorporate and a starter dough though. The simplest bread of all is scones. Just last week I threw together some toasted walnuts, one and half banana and boy they taste good. Thanks for thinking of me though.Hehehe. Maybe, you could try some new recipes on that Hubby;) Partner says that he thinks that the way to a man's heart is good cooking and often says it might get him off the road. Hahaha. Hey, I'm trying if I don't kill him first.

Ahhh, in my fantasy world I have scones with hot tea! The way to a mans heart is good cooking? I think so! What man coming through the door after a long day doesn't love the good smell of a meal ready to be served? Let me phrase it another way, who wouldn't love the good smell of a delicious meal ready to be served?! Lol.

If you come south to Winchester and then turn toward Pikeville, my arms are not long enough to reach that far to hand you a plate. I am about 15-20 miles south of Lexington near the Kentucky River.

Dog decided we needed to get up and go to the tree and I should make coffee and add wood to the fire. When I sat down here with my cup of coffee, he climbed up between my legs and told me I forgot to say "EAT". when I did, he looked over toward the bowl and made his tail smile. Who says dogs can't talk? LOL

The way to a man's heart might be through his stomach but in the long haul, it may not be not doing him a favor. If he can learn to cook a few things for himself, he may not need to spend the rest of his life eating Big Macs and French Fries.

When I do get out away from the Homestead, I drive by those arches and it is the same old men sitting in there day after day. Pretty sad.

A loved one certainly knows how to put the squeeze on you, judging by today's performance. They might use some moral or emotional blackmail, or they could simply make your life a total misery until you concede to their wishes. It might be tempting to give in but deep down you know that you can't capitulate under this sort of pressure because it will send entirely the wrong message.

Well Story, I certainly can't disagree with anything you have typed here. It's a collective of plain common sense when it comes to your resistance.

The more interesting story might be the one about the need to "put the squeeze on you". Was it something thy were not getting or something they wanted? Moral/emotional blackmail or making you miserable is sort of petty, Circumstance dependent...

If it's a marriage it needs to be fixed, a less formal arrangement might require termination. Living in those circumstances would eventually be total abject misery and who needs that? Focus on your needs and decide if you are the problem, or is the other half the kind of person which will sooner than later lower the bar even more. "What's for lunch?" could turn into this repugnant behavior and nobody needs that. Just think it through....

Or, just run away as fast and as far as you can get,

in your house of communication, making it difficult to express yourself as clearly as you usually do for the next three weeks. Misunderstandings and confusion could frustrate your attempts to achieve your goals, so slow down and read the fine line very carefully. This is also a good time to notice what is not being said... consider learning more about body language and other forms of non-verbal communication.

That creates a slight problem if we can't stretch our arms to pass the breakfast plate. Just wrap it with foil or plastic wrap and give it a nice toss like a frisbee! Lol. I'm not much count at playing frisbee but when there's good food involved my frisbee skills improve dramatically!
Dog certainly knows how to communicate! Hes not planning to go hungry! Family member brought their city dog to visit the country this past week. City dog loves to play, chase cats and romp with our dog (who is much older). Someone-not me-left the chicken pen gate open and city dog went in and helped herself. She proudly presented her beautiful catch to her owner. Her pride was communicated with the smile, bouncy step and waving that flag of a tail!

Wow! It is so great to see so many posting on the thread over the last 24 hours.

@ NOPE - Thank you so much! Yes, this cancer has been a pain, literally! I started off having some minor pain that would come and go in June. I often get ovarian cysts and figured that is what it was. By July, well the pain came, stayed, and started getting much worse. My family doctor thought it was kidney stones and, since I do not have medical insurance, told me to go to the emergency room if it got worse...and it did. The ER did a CT scan and found a big 3.9cm x 3.6cm mass in my kidney and also picked up masses in my lower lungs and a 6mm one in my spleen. My family doctor sent me to the cancer center who sent me for a biopsy of my kidney, which came back that my breast cancer has returned. Darn sneaky cancer!!! Without having medical insurance I have only been able to get my annual mammograms, which always turned out fine (except last year when I had a biopsy that turned out ok). I have no idea how the cancer returned every place but the one place we were watching for it! My last battle (2006-2007) bone scans showed a lesion in my arm bone and the CT scans showed nodules in my lungs (which they said was nothing to worry about - um, only two of the previous nodes show on current CT scans, so if these tumors are not the nodes...where did all the nodes go?). We did not find out it was cancer until August 5th when the oncologist informed me that I was now stage 4 not curable. I have been in palliative care since. It has been one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride. Learning last Friday that the suckers are really shrinking has allowed me to finally breathe!

As for your diabetes, have you tried natural Stevia? I used to do a lot of wild crafting (AKA herbing) and learned a bunch. Anyways, Stevia is a natural sweetner that actually starts helping your body to regulate its sugar levels. You can grow it much like mint.

Sheeesh! I am sorry you are having heart troubles? I know when I was working very hard on a pH alkaline diet that the first day I was able to reach a pH level of 7.0-7.2 my blood pressure, which had jumped up from 110 to nearly 180, dropped back down into the 120s. BUT, I had also started another alternative treatment as well around the same time, Simpson Oil. I am not sure if an alkaline diet would help with your heart or not. I really hate that for you. At least with cancer you know you have some amount of time. I do not know how people cope with a diagnosis in which they can die at any moment! Yet, I would have to say that heart troubles and cancer are much better (as far as having extra time) than a bad accident. Time is a very important gift.

You are now added to my daily prayers. God can cure what men can't. Prayers have worked miracles in my life before.

At least we are all on the right side of the grass today.

@ Misty - Thank you. Yes, we think it is the alternative that caused the tumors to shrink. Even he nurse believes it was too soon to have any visual changes from the ovary removal that was just done September 13. Wow!!! You make Challah bread? I have made it twice, but my oven is screwed up, which I did not know at the time, and cooked the bread 100 degrees too much. It was not burnt bad, but pretty dark brown. I also caught the fact that when I split the recipe in half that I forgot to divide the eggs as well. I still used 5 egg yolks! On my first try it took me an hour of running back and forth to watch the braiding video, but it turned out pretty! Any tips for making the best Challah?

@ Anne – Thank you. Yes, I am trying alternatives. Alternatives are not a choice when the doctors tell you they cannot cure you. I am only 43 and have children, so dying right now is not an option. I was working on a cancer diet and a pH alkaline diet. I originally cut out all sugar, carbs, meats, dairy, and fruit (natural sugar). What happened was that I lost 16 pounds in about 10 days. That was not good at all. Now I eat anything that I feel like eating. Most days nothing sounds good at all, which is not good for me because then I will not eat anything. By allowing myself anything I want then I will keep my weight and develop more conditions, like protein deficiency. Why do you have to go all the way to Pikeville?

@ AW - That is sad about the same old men being at McDonald’s every day. My son will do the dishes and his own laundry, but he will not cook! That is going to have to change. It is always good to see you posting.

@ Miss E Font - Cinnamon is good for cancer too. I have not added that one yet, but I will. Are you taking cinnamon in capsule form or adding it to food and/or drink?

I certainly do not feel like a warrior some days...more like a wimpy chicken. lol I saw a video about a mother who had advanced stage breast cancer and wanted to stay alive until she could see all three of her daughters get married. All three were married on the very same day, a Sunday. The mother died the next day, Monday. What really got me out of that video was how sick, frail, and old their 56 year old mother looked. I decided right then that I am not going out like that!!! I do believe that the mind is a very powerful thing and that a positive outlook is half of the cancer battle, even though it is not always easy.

I believe that as well. I use visualization techniques too. I use cinnamon as much as possible in my cooking; however, to get the dosage that works, I take the cinnamon in a capsule.

@ HOPE – Well, it is about time! I was hoping you were out there in the background! Wasn’t it you that was telling me about some green drink, not green tea, but something else. I am certain it was you that had mentioned it. I am certain you talked about water too.

Yes, the tumors are regressing. If the shrinkage is caused by the alternative then I am in pretty good shape; however, if it was caused by the ovary removal then I am in trouble as it will eventually stop working and the tumors will start growing again. Since they are decreasing in size, I figure I will wait on the kidney removal surgery. The urologist said that failing kidneys (my left kidney is functioning at 9%) can start functioning properly again, but they did not feel that would happen in my case. I think that the shrinking tumors raises the odds that my kidney will start working properly again.

I started watching Revolution when it first started. I think I watched the first three episodes, but then I would forget to watch it. I have never been much of a TV person, but I have watched a bunch of it since the kidney trouble started. I watch Blacklist faithfully every Monday night, but it did not start until after all of the kidney trouble.

The world! My playground! I have not been keeping up with much lately. I am pretty up to date on Syria. I pretty much lost my passion after getting hit with a death sentence. I do take a day here and there to try and catch up.
