I can relate & opted for the artificial multi-focal artificial lense 5 years ago. Now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. First time not to wear any glasses in over 40 years😊

Hi Merry, considering all that is going on since the last tests I am doing pretty well. Yesterday I spent almost all day working in my yard. We had a large storm cone through here with high winds & heavy rains, making a big mess to clean up. Fortunately we have an excellent helper who came to lend a hand. When fatigue hits I just take a few minutes break & am good to go for a couple of hours longer. Finding staying busy is good mentally as well as physically. Turning 80 in 2 months & planning a celebration. Hoping to still be here for the fun!🎉🥂🎂🥂🎉
Thank you for bringing me back to the Lung Cancer Group. My GP found that I also have a fungal infection. Now on a special antibiotic to fight this new problem. The journey continues!
Thank you @merpreb. This Mayo connection means the world to me. I do not discuss my cancer problems with many people, mainly just my family & a couple of very close friends, who have also had cancer.
I am feeling very positive because like the other 3 different cancers I have had over the past 17 years, all were caught in early stages. But, have to admit since this one is so close to the brain it is a bit more scary. Am having headaches, just not as bad as before the targeted radiation treatments. Of course pain meds do help. I know that the brain cannot feel pain, but the scalp, bone & blood vessels surrounding the brain are sensitive to pain.
Thank you all for your kind, caring thoughts & prayers.
These wonderful words are even more important to me at this point. This past week I was diagnosed with metatasic cancer. Am going back to Mayo on this Tuesday for a liver biopsy to discover if it is from the breast cancer 9 years ago or the small cell lung cancer of last year. Then the doctors will decide whether or not I am a candidate for immunotherapy. Thank God for excellent Mayo doctors & modern medicine . I am good with what ever they decide. I have told them that I want quality of life, not just quantity. They all said that it is the right decision. Also last week I had targeteted radiation to the bone covering the brain. No lesions in the brain, but did have bone metastasis. Will find out soon if that particular therapy worked.
Thank you Alamogal. Hope you have a blessed Easter celebration. It truly is a wonderful time too remember that there is a life after this one is over. Jesus said “In my Father’s House there are many mansions. I go there to prepare a place for You”! HE also said “Heaven is on Earth”! Let us rejoice in those words, loving each & everything we have been blessed with while we are still here, keeping Faith in His Promises.

@alamogal635 You look fantastic. I wanted to have some color put on my gray hair, but research said to wait for a year since the new hair is fragile.🤨

Hello Colleen, here is a link to my youngest son’s utube video that helps with meditation & relaxation that is very good to listen to for calm & reducing stress.
