I have been busy with my seedlings, last week I transplanted my petunia seedlings to six pack and truly I believe I have close to six petunia hundred plants - I have never had this many germinate, only thing I am made about are my impatiens, they did not do as well. We have been having some nice weather, I look at all my flowerbeds and go, will work on them next month. I also have lots of lobelia - and tomatoes plants growing also, could kick myself as I forgot to order marigolds, oh well, will look around at one of the nurseries.
Take care and hope all is well and Kadien is improving.
I am happy I shared the link to this retreat, please contact them asking regarding airfare etc. I hope I mentioned that the retreat is free... They have a different retreat each month with different topics, Truly you all deserve to take the time for you.
This last weekend I attended a Retreat with the Image Reborn Foundation. Once a month this Foundation sponsors a weekend at either a resort location or a home in the mountains of Northern Utah. This weekends retreat was for those with Stage IV BC, they have retreats for all stages as well as survivors and young survivors, my only cost was getting myself there. Two of the women had flown in from Pennsylvania. They have discussions, fine food & wine, discussion groups, coping, stress reduction and treatment options. It depends on what your needs are. Oh, we also laughed and cried a lot and shared experiences about our journey.

Making the decision to take the drugs offered or not is always hard for me. My biggest problem is I look more to what the side effects will do versus how the drug will help slow down my cancer. I was on Femara for a good year (manufactured by Mylan, little pink pill) then the pharmacy changed manufactures and was given a tan/gold pill - not sure who manufactured it. Well those little tumour markers started to climb. Earlier this month the Oncologist want me to try Aromasin & Afinitor - In the back of my head I felt like I needed to find the little pink pill again and give that another try - so will see next week if it is working. The biggest reason I did not want to take Afinitor is because of the long list of side effects. Presently I am conducting my own clinical trial. If the markers drop, then I am off to the pharmacy to let them know that what they were giving me did not work. No worries, the fingers and toes are crossed that they markers will drop.
Back in 2001 I felt that taking Tamoxifin was for me. I went eight years before cancer came back, wasn't the same type but I am still checking out everything they suggest I take.
Even though it is 20 degrees outside, sun is shining, the ground is covered with plenty of white stuff, I have, well kinda have, started things for my garden beds. First off I kept a lot of geraniums from last year and they need looking after and last week I began starting my seeds. If there was sun in my little garden work shop I would be in heaven, but alas, hubby does not want to cut into the side of the house. One flat with impatiens has already emerged, started more yesterday and will get more started today... So we can do all sorts to begin our gardening... Have a nice day and sorry for those who got lots of snow, as I am in the desert I love it as it means I can water my plants all summer long......View Thread
You have every right to be scared, I also feel good that they are wanting to do the test again, it is good they are going back now than later. As they say when we catch this beast early our chances are better.
I wish you all the best and please post your results.
