    All nurses being great

  9. Mr C update: He’s had the first 8 of 33 radiation treatments and although they said there would be a cumulative effect so he wouldn’t be sick at first, he’s really pretty miserable. Can’t hardly keep anything down and his throat is sore. The neighbor is going with him for the treatments because he can’t drive afterwards as he feels woozy. He’s lost more weight. Pain pills don’t help much. He sees his primary care doctor tomorrow maybe can get some help there.
    BUT…..Shhhhh…….it is a secret…….his kids are all coming over Sat for a surprise birthday picnic so I hope the kids and grandkids will perk him up.

    1. Sending best wishes for Mr C. Warn the kids that he will get tired very easily. {{{{{{MrC}}}}}}

      1. thanks anni, ai will! {{{{{anni}}}}}

    2. Oh, man… only a quarter of the way through. :-( Iz gonna feel lyk furever. Is nothing they can give him to help modeate the symptoms some?

My head am gettin ober it moar slowly, finkso it triggered sum deep reshun/ankziety stuffs, atta thyme I already were feelin a bit stresst (tiring summer, an Jackie goez away Oct 11 an comin back Oct 23 an gonna haz sirjury an comes home allaway a girl! but recobery takes a whylol anna billion fings to do befoar), so I keep gettin unfokused an fawlin asleep or gettin distraktid eezy azza kitteh.

              6. Wow! Glad to hear you are feeling better physically, sorry about the head stuff, I hope it clears up. You sound very overwhelmed, just try to dream a little bit ahead, past the stressful stuff and think about how you and Jackie will be all healed. You have a month before Jackie leaves and comes back so try to take it (somewhat) easy and slowly do your cleaning. Make sure you don’t strain yourself because she will need your help then. You have good love and support with Jackie and the kittehs. Hugs and love to you both.

            3. I haven’t been checking in too much – I thought the kidney stones were taken care of :( I’m very sorry to hear of multiple problems, one of his problems would be way too much for me! Glad to hear he got some weight back on so no tube yet and he got some pain meds. Many hugs and beems for you both.
              {{{{{{{Mr C and mq}}}}}}}

  10. Casey had another “spell” this morning. I was just starting out taking him to see another oncologist for a second opinion on chemo. I wasn’t far from his primary care MD so went there. They were all so good to us. Dr and PA came out to car. His BP was way low. They took him in, gave him IV. We talked again about feeding tube and I said YES-we all agreed that he could not live on IV’s so they made arrangements for him to have the tube placed right away at Warsaw hospital so off to anote -=h6ospital5 we wen-2qw“(foster kitten helping type) so….off to another hospital. GI doc also comes to our hospital so I know him-he did my first colonoscopy :oops:
    Anyways so he’s home with a new tube so he has one in the back and one in the front!
    He was supposed to have another procedure in Rochester tomorrow to try again to get the kidney stone. So I cancelled that! I think the feeding tube is going to help a lot as he cannot eat!
    Maybe I’ll just do updates when something major happens so I don’t bore you with all these mini-crisises (sp?).
    Regarding mentioned foster kitten-not to worry-she’s only here for 2 weeks so I can give her antibiotics-3 different families want her!

    1. You can “bother” us all you want with these mini-criseses. It’s not a bother, anyway, and they’re not so mini. I’m really sorry you’re both going through all this. It sounds like you have good people working with you.

      And yay for little foster girl who has people fighting over her! Who gets to decide?

    2. Like TJP sez: it’s not bothering us! Love you, and while I wish there weren’t so much going on, we’re here to listen and offer hugs and sympathy and beems.

      At this rate, you’re going to be living with a cyborg! But yep, at least good medical peeps, which is a huge relief. Fingers crossed for getting weight and blood pressure stabilized – kidney stone can wait a bit!

      I’m glad the little girl has homes lined up already (too bad you didn’t have that kind of interest before… but then, no Johnny to make you laugh and no Susie or Ronnie, so… yeah, it’s hard to get your head around that stuff once they’ve been there a while!), and I hope she recovers wifakwikness!

      Jackie says, never feel like you’re bothering anyone because sometimes it helps just to talk about it to people you trust, and feeling alone and struggling makes things much harder and darker.

      Lots of love and beems coming from both of us and the purrkids!

  11. Thanks you two! The kitten gives me a little positive to write about although the story starts out sad. Monday a college student came to the vets with this little girl, she was crying and sobbing because she couldn’t keep the kitten. She had found it at a dumpster all alone. Kitten about 5 weeks old. The girl paid for the vet exam and the antibiotics kitty has to take for a respiratory bug. Bev, my vet tech friend called and asked if I would foster her and they would help find a home. So of course I said yes, Tuesday Bev called to say a friend of hers who had been at the vets when the sobbing student was there wants the kitten. So she has 36ir+s9““ (kitten) first dibs. Then a friend at work’s MIL wants her. And the neighbor’s friend also so-my thought too Prysma-where the heck were these people last year????? I’ll put some pictures in the Gallery-she’s a cutie!

    1. while I was writing that I did not realize that kitten was face-first in my bowl I had eaten New England clam chowder in, She had it all over her face and did not like the washcloth bath I gave her!

  17. Mr. C update: He went to the ENT Dr. yesterday who told him he was doing miraculously better than could be expected because he had the biggest tumor the Dr. had seen. He will be getting a cat scan soon to see if anything looks suspicious and if so he’ll have a pet scan. Today he’s getting a basal cell cancer taken off his face. Still on soft food, no sense of taste, still getting feeding through the night, still has the nephrostomy tube. The PA at the office said to wait till Jan to mess with the kidney issue. Our primary care MD went out on an extended leave for no one knows how long. Or exactly why….
    I think all the cheezbeems did a great job for him!
    This has been your Mr. C update. On with the festivities!

    1. Thanks for the update, mqos. Hope everything looks as good on the scan as it sounds and that his sense of taste comes back soon.

        1. thnx for the update. Sending continued good wishes!

    2. Sending himz well-wishes!

  18. Mr C update-sorta-he had a PET scan last Tuesday. After not hearing anything he called yesterday. “We can’t tell you anything over the phone, come in Wed at 10:30”. We’re both pretty stressed over that. Also his pain meds aren’t working even though he got a stronger patch. Please send beams of positivity. xxxooo to my cheezpeeps.

  21. So the oncologist says his CT scan (not PET like we thought) shows a possible nodule…but oncol thinks it is scar tissue. To be sure she will order a PET scan in one month. Then we wait 2 weeks for those results.

  23. Wanted to update on Mr.C. He still has tubes front and back but he looks way more like himself and is not as sick. He’s still mainly eating mac and cheese but he has gained a few pounds and his color is way better. He had a CAT scan (not PET scan like he thought) and the oncologist said it looks good. There was an area of possible nodules but she thinks it is scar tissue. Because of that, he will have a PET scan in a few weeks so she can tell for sure. His thyroid test was off and he goes to his regular doctor (well now a nurse-practitioner which is a whole story all by itself) tomorrow.

    1. Thx mqos for keepin us up 2 daet. Still sending powerful healing thoughts across the pond.

    2. That sounds encouraging! Thnx for the update, and hang in there :)

Dere is nuttin’ affordable about ACA attawl, not to mom anyways…..oh, well.

    More news, da nosy neighbor man in da howse next door mayded truble for mom anz Dad da oddur effuning anz cawled 911 on dem, which akshullee wur a false call, cuz mom anz Dad didn’t do whut dat man alleged. Now Dad iz makin shure awl da windows heer haf da blinds down or are covered so dat man cannot looks in heer to make up more storeez. Mom did tell Dad months ago dat dis neighbor wur watchin effury moov dat dey made anz Dad sed, “Nah, you are just paranoid and imagining stuff. He has always been nice and friendly to me, so you just must not like him.” Mom told Dad after effurywun left the other evuning, “Now do you believe me?” Dad sighed and said, “Yes, we apparently have a nosy neighbor. I wonder how good his binoculars are because that is the only way he could see into this house through our windows as far away as our houses are from each other.”

    So, dis is da storee of our lyfe dis week..hopefully next week, it will be beddur….MOL.

  29. Okay, folks – Jackie and I lose our Internet tomorrow and get it back on Tuesday. (It’s the weekend, and everything’s always weird on weekends. :-) ) Ditto for our landline phone. (At least we have a cellphone for emergencies.)

    We might duck in if we get a chance, by dropping by the nearest Tim Horton’s or something, but no promises. (If you need to email me, use the gmail address, it’s the only one I can easily get on my netbook!)

    Saturday’s going to be exhausting, of course (and we are BEYOND grateful to the friends who are showing up and the one who promised to buy pizza for everyone!).

    Sunday we collapse physically and emotionally and maybe start trying to find important stuff while helping the purrkids get settled in. My depression/anxiety has been making the whole packing process nearly as tough as the apartment hunt was, and Jackie fell a couple of times in January and is in serious pain with bad movement limitations (and major frustrations, too). We very much need to rest.

    Monday, I have a psychiatry appointment (that’ll be fun, I haven’t seen him since before we gave notice on OldPlace!) plus I’ll be trying to restock our rather bare cupboards and the like. Jackie will be home and probably dealing with her currently-off-the-scale pain levels still. However, we might have an opportunity or two to check in.

    Tuesday, we do a final walk-through on OldPlace and make sure nothing’s been forgotten, and then we hand in the keys and get on with our lives. Our Internet and phone are scheduled to be reconnected this day, so if all goes well, we’ll be back up and running then. I have great faith both in Jackie’s skills and in the power of computers to be intensely frustrating and obstructive. LOL

    We’ll try to keep you posted, but if you don’t hear from us for a couple of days, this is why.

    There should be sufficient posts set up to keep everything going through Wednesday. If something goes wrong and I can’t even do the coffeeshop wifi for some reason, there are lots of draft posts that your Friendly Neighbourhood mods annipuss and maryqos can schedule when they’re around.

    And afterwards, I’m hoping we can get a party going to celebrate elebenty-hundred posts and 3.5 years and getting back to new posts instead of reruns and I’m sure we can think of other stuff! Thank you for being so patient about the disruptions for the past few months – I love you guys wif a feerse, I feel bad when I just can’t get my head together to tell you that and be encouraging when things are rough for my friends, and I’m very much looking forward to having the energy to come play again and give hugs more reliably!

    1. Wishing you all a smooth move and hoping the furz settle well and that Jackie’s pain lessens. Will keep an eye on things and try not to wreck the place while you are incommunicado!

      1. Cheezland am in gudgudgud hands. :-)
