  1. Glad to hear active treatments are over! Hurray! My infusion center didn't have a bell but I did get flowers from them and a certificate of completion congrats from rad oncology. Very sweet making your wife a birthday dinner. But she and your docs are right. You need to listen to your body and rest. To help combat fatigue, which I still have from that time and from the meds I'm on, I'd do chair exercises. Now I force a daily walk. Praying scans will show great results! β€πŸ™πŸ»β€πŸ™πŸ»β€

  3. Let me suggest to people getting chemo. This stuff causes neuropathy in many. What I did is place lunch sized ice mats under my hands and feet. On like 15 min, off 15 min, etc. Infusion centers should have fridge/freezers to store these. They also sell hands and feet ice gloves on Amazon. Forget the name. I didn't know that 6 years ago. I have a little tingling and numbness in my hands anf feet but feel it could be worse had I not taken that advice.
  4. Yes chewing ice can help during chemo. But definitely also do magic mouthwash and or baking soda, and brush teeth after each meal.
  5. I heard about that. I had to buy it so I went cheap with baking soda and warm water.
  6. For nausea try hard boiled fully cooked eggs. For some strange reason it helped me. Don't let your stomach get empty. Several small meals a day focused on protein helped. Radiation is cumulative like chemo is. I was a lobster in those areas toward the end. I massaged pure aloe vera gel in then a cream called miaderm. Nothing helps the red but this combo made the discomfort not as bad. Your radiation oncology center may have samples. Mine gave me a ton free ones. To help prevent mouth sores, mix 1 spoon baking soda in 1 c warm water. Swish in your mouth a few times until it's empty. Also brush teeth after each time you eat. I did this per my nurse and no mouth sores. So sorry to hear about your mom. Prayers out to her as well. Xx
  7. Anticlimactic is good. πŸ™πŸ»β€πŸ™πŸ»
  8. Thinking and praying for you SLB. One day at a time. You have people that love and care about you, great support. That's half the battle imo. πŸ™πŸ»β€πŸ™πŸ»
  9. Awe, I admire your strength on top of your own stuff. Wishing you the best always! πŸ’™
  10. A tip that I've found not all chemo patients get. Chemo causes neuropathy in many. That's the numbness and tingling in hands and feet. When I went through chemo I was told by my support group to ice hands and feet during chemo. I used to keep ice packs in the freezer at the infusion center. They have ice gloves for hands and feet on Amazon. I have some neuropathy despite icing but it's not bad. It's better than what it would've been had I not taken that advice. GL! πŸ™πŸ»

  12. Weatherdude says last heatwave starting on Sat will be the last for this year. I'm wondering if he's new here. Oct heatwaves do happen.
  13. TEXT RBG TO 50409 this will send a message to your senator to demand that a new SCOTUS isn’t nominated prior to the election.
  14. TEXT RBG TO 50409 this will send a message to your senator to demand that a new SCOTUS isn’t nominated prior to the election. Takes one minute and easy to do!
  15. You know it's coming but it's still crushing. Looking at her medical history going back, wow. What a fighter. Whats interesting is she was a moderate when first appointed to the SC. Truly a big loss. I'm sad for the younger than me generation who will be affected by the major SC decisions that RBG fought so hard to keep or overturn. A real genuine lady who fought to stay alive for our sake. She wanted to retire in 2016. πŸ˜₯ RIP
  16. On YouTube, Paul Oakenfold set on the bud boat in Moscow from 2 years ago. Definitely my type of fun when I was younger!
  17. Well let's just say by law, I don't have to file taxes..
  18. But he's not an expert or instructor. Love watching him. My fav.
  19. Newsom created a senior friendship line when covid first came out since so many are alone isolating.
