Probably about as good an early prognosis as we could have hoped for. Small mass in the lung, no spread. 5 or 6 hits of radiation then reevaluate. First time trying out lung cancer. She's done a good job of mixing it up with different types.
That's horrible, I'm so sorry :hug:

Do you all have a good system set up for support for everyone? (Yourself included)

Olaplex is overpriced trash

This stuff is great

I like Giovanni too but I use the eco line. It’s super cheap. I use other stuff for styling. A mix depending on what I feel like. Mostly bumble, Kenra and oribe. I don’t really like expensive shampoos. I find they don’t do much for me tbh.

Why does he want to sell it? :confused:

I may not be a subaru bro, but that would be a great car for out here. Get some all terrain tires, enjoy the coastal mountain range.
I don’t know exactly, but probably just the ease of moving with fewer cars. I’m pretty pissed about him selling the STI.

So I upgraded (ie. bought another)my engagement ring. 😂

I think so. My wife and kid are there for my mom and she has my dad. And we have God to rely on, moreso for my wife and I than my mom.

:hug: I’m so sorry to hear! Breast? My mom went through that. Are you close by her? I’m sure she would LOVE some ice cream my mom did.
Let me know if you need to talk
Breast was the first one
Leiomyosarcoma was the second, which is a pretty rare one
This time it's lung cancer
She's on a pretty restrictive diet due to damage caused by the treatment for the first cancer. She's barely allowed liquids (~30 or so ounces), almost no salt, and a bunch of other banned foods.

We're definitely close. I just want her to grow old enough to watch my son grow up.

Me too, just couldn’t find the white bottles on google tbh

In other news. Went to the doctor with my sdad today. Cancer spread, they can’t do surgery but he’s reacting well to the medication he’s on. Looks like it’s going to be 3 month visits and shots until they stop working and then radiation. I think he’s more scared than he wants to admit because when we got out he wanted me to explain a few things. He’s such a good guy. Stupid war! 😡

*exposure to agent orange. They are going to test for exposure to other agents.
WTF

FUCK CANCER

jfc, second migraine in a month. i'm glad my doctor realized this was the time to finally get me a prescription for imitrex. i've had migraines over the years, but i haven't really felt like they needed to be medicated. i've had two that are medicine-level since i got the prescription with no real changes (that i can think of)

I’ve had them for 20 years. Mine are resistant to almost everything and it makes it harder since I have kidney disease I can’t take a lot of stuff. I’m trying Botox now. Imitrex works like 50% of the time.

my husband gets really bad headaches, and he tries to help as much as he can... but it doesn't always help when i just need quiet and calm :hs:

i've gotten them for a long time, but it's generally a lot more sparse. it feels like an odd coincidence that i've had two in the month that i've had the prescription, which is up from one every, like, three months

Let me know how it goes for you. How many rounds in are you?

If they're frequent enough insurance can (will is another thing) cover migraine protocol botox. One treatment every 3 months means you're never not covered, so they don't even start. It changed my life so I now preach the gospel to other sufferers.
Good to know, definitely gonna tell her cause I've never heard her mention that as a potential option. Thank you :love:

Yeah I'd never seen it before and it took a minute for me to reali.e that she was being truthful when she said to just leave her alone. Easy response was always to push back and try and be helpful but then I got it.

i always feel bad because he's generally got good suggestions when i'm dealing with stuff, so it's really hard for him :o and it's just one of the times that i have zero patience for it :hs:

oh I get it.. poor guy, means well but sometimes leave me alone means literally that and you don't mean bad by it.

I just make sure there's a constant supply of double chocolate ice cream in the basement freezer she never even opens cause it's all my weird sous vide vacuum sealed shit. surprise her with that and all is well typically lol
