Hi Nancy: I am so pleased to hear from you! I appreciate your report about your last month. I'm so glad to hear about your 85th birthday - that is wonderful. I'm also glad to hear that you are losing some of the water weight and feeling better. The small meals that you are eating are probably a good thing. I have a hard time with a regular size meal and tend to eat small, frequent meals as well.

I am sorry to hear about your granddaughter's husband with Burkitt Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I did not know much about that, but I looked it up on Mayo's website. Here is a link with some more information about it, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/non-hodgkins-lymphoma/symptoms-causes/syc-20375680. I do hope that he is able to tolerate the chemo treatment well.

You mentioned some time ago about your daughter-in-law having lung cancer. How is she doing?

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Hi Teresa,

My daughter in law Joy is doing somewhat better she is on a new

immune therapy called "A fat nib" it was

okayed for use last October. Her cat scan showed a improvement,

not sure how much but better. Small is good,

she has her chemo every three weeks also.  I'm glad that I was

able to get back here. It's good to vent sometime.

June 14/ 2018...shortshot80) Hi Teresa, Things are getting somewhat better. My husband Bob's celebration of life was just beautiful on June 2. He passed on May 4. House is lonely, but that will change in time. My treatments are going ok, am on Immune therapy now and have had three treatments so far.. Next one on the 21st June. My daughter in law Joy, now has brain cancer along with the lung cancer. It is time that I get back in here and visit with folks. My book I'm working on is "1971 I started fishing commercially with my husband in a small 22 foot boat called a "Dory". We fished weekends and vacations from 1971 to 1987 when we moved to the coast. Then fished till the early 1990's and I went to work at a grocery story for about five or six years. Still working on this, hopefully I can get it done soon. More later, Nancy

@shortshot80 Hi Nancy:

I'm so glad to hear that your husband's Celebration of Life went so well. That was important to you and your children. I'm sure that your home will seem lonely for a while to come. If you feel like writing about your grief and loss, please feel free to join our discussion on grief at, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/loss-and-grief-how-are-you-doing/

I am also glad to hear about your Immune Therapy. Do you have any side-effects from it? I hope that it continues to help you. I'm sorry, though, to hear about Joy's brain cancer. You had mentioned her lung cancer some time ago and this has to be very disappointing to now learn of brain cancer as well.

I'm excited to hear about your book. It sounds like you and your husband had some nice times with commercial fishing. What a great idea to put your memories in writing.

Take care and post again when you have time,
