sorry to not have answered you all. i'm still trying to find my way around this forum!
lori - i live right next to livingston. there are those darn "circles" there and they sure can be a challenge. i find myself just gripping the steering wheel and flying on thru them!!! lucky for me i have a pretty big car! LOL!
frayda! i grew up in edison! right off of new durham road. it sure has changed a lot since then. do you have children that went to school in edison? my mom was a teacher there for 35 years. she taught 2nd and 3rd grade at menlo park elementary school. wouldn't that be a hoot if you knew her?
i'm grateful to have found you all. i'm going thru a very tough time right now and can use a lot of friends!
i finished my treatments for stage 2b, 2 positive nodes, er/pr +, her2+++ the beginning of march. a cat scan two weeks ago showed spots on my lungs that weren't there before chemo. going to see a thoracic surgeon on tuesday and will be having an open lung biopsy to determine if the spots are the cancer, or an infection. the stress is horrible! i've been popping ativan like they are candy and i still can't get rid of the huge knots in my stomach.
well, let's hope for the best. i promised my husband that if they find this is an infection, i'll learn how to do a cartwheel and start rolling! so if anyone in nj sees a crazy, spikey haired broad of 45 doing cartwheels down the side of the road - its me!!!! hugs,
Hi Stacy! Small world, huh?!
I live off New Dover Rd. so my kids had gone to James Madison, but my friend teaches at Menlo Park school. Now I have one son in law school and one son in medical school! We have a saying here about worrying: try not to worry until you know that there is something to worry about, thanks to GMA! I've been dealing with scattered lung nodules since last May when they were discovered on a CT scan during a work up for a new breast lump (that turned out to be a cyst,yeah!). I had a repeat scan in 6 weeks, then 3 months then 4 months and the most recent one last week. So far, no changes. I see the lung specialist next week for my follow-up. They haven't wanted to biopsy them since they appear unchanged. I have been reassured that if they were cancer, they would have changed. But knowing that they are there leaves my uneasy. The doctor is a very close friend who I trust like a brother, so I have been going along with him. My dh (that's short for dear husband) is a doctor, too. So, here's hoping that all goes well for you, too! Let us know when that biopsy is and we'll have that PCE ready to go! Hugs, Frayda
