19 hours ago · Living with lung cancer - Introduce yourself & come say hi in Lung Cancer

(shortshot Nancy) Hi Colleen, I have been not feeling so sharp for the last couple weeks, nothing with the lung cancer, just don't know what, but am getting somewhat better. I tried to log in and they don't know my email address again. I must have upset the "emil god" any
way here I am. I had a cat scan and saw my doc's and I have to go back in three weeks for another blood test, then wait for six weeks for another cat scan. The last scan showed that my lung cancer had shrunk some and a couple of nodules had disappeared. So that's a good thing. So I have been working some on my book. Hopefully I will get it finished soon. Thanks Colleen for all your help. Nancy Bush
This also to Teresa (hopeful) Nancy

Thu, May 9 11:26am · Living with lung cancer - Introduce yourself & come say hi in Lung Cancer

Tereasa/ (Nancy-shortshot) Good Morning all, CT results tomorrow and I will let you know. My book is in the last stages before printing. I just have to get it in "the right time line" When I was talking and my friend typed, I did not think of the year and I just put things in the right order. So am working on that now. Memories are at times all mixed up. Anyway it's a start. I want to get this done. It is a beautiful day today and my youngest son is out in the ocean fishing. He fished yesterday also and we had fresh cod for dinner last night. He also put crab pots out yesterday so hopefully we will have a crab salad tonight too. Also with fresh strawberries and sliced tomato will make a great dinner. Don't know if you remember me talking of my granddaughter's husband with the horrible rare cancer he had in his sinus' cavity, anyway he had gone through a rough series of chemo and everything, anyway he is cured and doing well. They are trying to have a baby. They may have to use the frozen sperm. Not sure yet. Also the cancer was behind his left eye and now his vision is coming back, praise God on that and being cured of the cancer. More later….. Nancy

Hoopefull33250 … Hello Teresa, Finally I found how to get back on here. Hopefully Colleen shared with you my email to her. I have been going through several things and it has not been fun… Last Wednesday I started coughing and coughing up thick mucus with dark blood. So called my doc and set up a cat scan which will be Wednesday and see my oncologist and radiation doc on Friday. Last Saturday was one year seance my husband passed. It has been a very emotional year. But things are slowly getting better. It just takes ime. I also have been losing some weight which I don't need to do. Will check that when I see the doc's. I have been working on my book, am getting close to having it published. It will be just for the family, but we shall see how that goes…. Will be back to keep you all in the know! Nancy"shortshot"

(nancy-shortshot) Hi Teresa, It has been quite a while since I have been in here. I hope that Colleen updated you. I'm really glad that she had emailed me. I have been having a tough time for the last 3/4 months. Things are still somewhat unsettled but hopefully will get better with time. Tom morrow will be the anniversary of my husband passing. I'm getting better with the grief and getting better after my fall and breaking my left hip. Time will take care of things. I will get back here more often. Thanks for caring. Nancy

Dec 16, 2018 · Immunotherapy and chemo; Keytruda side effects in Lung Cancer

Nancy Bush/ shortshot0 Hi Colleen and Teresa) Howdy ladies, I'm finally back. It has been a while. I had immune therapy in March, April, May, and then went through a tough time with pain in all my joints. Doc told me that sometimes the immune therapy will do that, so have been on Prednisone off and on for several months. I have been trying to cut it down, then I start the pain again. Am on some sort of a merry go round for several months. . For the past couple of years that I've been going to the doc, they have put on a Christmas buffett with all kinds fo cold cuts, cheese's, crackers, hot chicken wings of two or three flavors, veggies, cookies, candy, punch, some "booze" if you want, just a great spread for patients and family. Very nice and much appreciated. Everyone had a great time visiting. Saw my doctor before lunch and my cat scan show no new growth, which is a good thing, and am trying again to cut the Prednisone down, however much slower this time. So it will work, just going to take some more time. I am feeling good, looking good and gaining more strength each week. I still do all my own clothes washing, folding etc, dishes and as much other things that I can get done daily. Have been working on my book, hopefully some time soon I can get it to the printers. I did have some news the other day. July I will be a "great great grandma! Wow, doesn't seem possible that could be, but I will spoil what ever kind I get! Doesn't seem possible that it has been seven months since my hubby died. Yes it does get lonely at times but it is better that it was. I have purchased my Christmas present which will be installed tomorrow. I have a new carpet for the living room. I am excited to have It installed tomorrow. It has been over 22 years since the last one. Something new always makes you feel great and also cheers up the home. I will be seeing the doctor again in about three weeks, then will see what the plan is going to be for me. Ladies, I'm so glad to be back here and join the conversation's, seems like forever since I was in here. Thank you Colleen for all the help, information to be back.
We have been having some wild storms here on the coast of Oregon, 60 mph winds, and lots of rain. Supposed to keep us wet for the next week or so. Have a great day everybody, I will be back in here soon. Nancy

Oct 10, 2018 · Loss and Grief: How are you doing? in Loss & Grief

Hi Teresa, (shortshot Nancy) My brother B is one and one half years younger than me. Last Friday he and his wife were in a small town on the coast, had spent couple days there, well on Friday he loaded the car and told his wife we need to leave and you need to drive, Get me to the local hospital. The doc's there wanted to life flight him to a different hospital, he told them no and to send him to Portland and his regular doc. Arrived in Portland , his doc met him and told him that there wasn't anything they can co expect start hospice. B called another brother G and told hi what was going on and not to tell me. He told him that I had enough problems. Anyway I called him to tell him about me, then I found out about him. He said "well dear neither of us is doing to well. Well G came to visit me yesterday and I found out he has bladder problems with blood in it. We prayed for each other and also for brother B. This year has not been to much fun.
More Later Nancy

Hi Teresa (shortshot) Things have just seem to explode, I have had my "Immune therapy sessions, which have been ok. But this last week, I spent Last Sunday 9/20 through Wed, in the hospital, I Had a fever 101.8, doc thought I had pnouminia and gave me antibotics.
Spelling isn't very good tonight. Anyway I was there for four days, Also I had all my joints hurting really bad, couldn't hardly get around. Well say my cancer doc today, said it could have maybe be a reaction to last month treatment. Gave me some pain meds and that them three times daily. Am really tired. Still am having a hard time with all the grief and so is Randy. He is just a basket case. But things will be better with time. Thanks for checking on me…… Had my treatment today and I'm tired.
