I have a below the knee amputation with major surgery to my other foot caused by diabetic complications. So I would like to find someone to chat with.

tenderralph: Chemo done blood was just over the cut off line. But at least it is done. Wearing the pump for the second type. Did get to read the report on my ct scan. They call it Metastatic Gastric Cancer. It did show lungs were clear and spleen looked normal. No adenopathy or abcess seen. So far so good.

tenderralph in reply to Nicorrette: Yes especially at night when laying down. Some times I have to get up and sleep in a chair. Then the chemo pump I wear for two days is very uncomfortable but it doesn't hurt. The diarrhea and vomiting are a major nuisance but tolerable.

tenderralph: Received chemo this afternoon. Doing OK so far. Had a pork chop and some rice for supper and watching for storm. Broken Bow a town northwest of here about 85 miles received 3 inch hail with 70 mph winds that reduced 7 foot tall corn to 1 foot stubble. Real sad for farmers.

tenderralph: Hi everyone have not been on much but sneak in sometimes to see how you are all doing. I am still kicking just not as high or fast as I used to. Most days start out the same for me. There is starting to be more pain as each week goes by and getting harder to keep food down or even wanted. Thank God the battle is not over I still have a lot of fight left in me. Speaking of God he has given me a lot of peace these days and nights. I can still get out and take care of the yard and garden but it is getting more painful to keep the weeds hoed and grass cut. Been doing some fishing but getting harder to go by myself because of help needed getting up down the banks and getting all my equipment to where I plan to sit. The shots I am receiving after my chemo treatments are causing a lot of pain in my knees and hips. But if it continues to help me I guess it is for the best. I know there is a lot people I used to talk with all the time all I can say is I think a lot about you but not sure what to say if we started talking again. I am sorry and it is definitely my fault. God bless everyone.

tenderralph: Well went for Chemo Thursday and was disappointed again. Blood work showed increase in the cancer markers it a decrease in white cells and iron. Have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow morning to see about trying the colonoscopy again. Then back to Morrison Cancer Center for another booster shoot to help the blood and hope we can do Chemo next week. But may have to settle for another blood transfusion. Maybe it is God's way of saying it is time for other things in life to take care of. He does work in strange ways maybe this is one. They told me to start wearing a mask in public places because I am more acceptable to infections. Wish it wasn't turning back to winter was about ready to try some fishing.

tenderralph: Made it to my appointment today to get a blood booster shot. (not sure what it is called) Also had to see the surgeon. While I was getting my shot they checked my blood again and it was worse then yesterday so they made an appointment for blood transfusion today so I spent most of the day at the hospital. Seen the surgeon and set a date on the 7th of March for my colonoscopy. I awoke about 2 am with a very upset stomach and could not get back to sleep so it has been a long day. I did get sick about 4:30 this afternoon and was able to eat some supper not much but some. Hope I start to feel better soon with God's help I will.

tenderralph: Hi everyone just thought I would give an update on my cancer treatment. After seeing the Dr. this morning he said the tumor has shrank to about half the size it was. He also said that there would be at least 11 more days of treatment with radiation. He doesn't deal with the chemo so I won't find out about that till Wednesday. He also never said anything about the cancer in the liver and I should of asked. But at least I can eat without getting sick or taking pain pills any more. With Gods support I will be fine and if not at least I can look forward to seeing him.

tenderralph: Thank you all for the prayers and hugs. I am having a few problems with rejecting chemo drugs but just have a couple treatments left on radiation. They say the tumors are getting smaller so they are responding to the treatments I am having which is good. God bless you all.

tenderralph: I got my first chemo treatment done today. and have been doing radiation all week. Got the pet scan done Monday and I guess it showed that the stomach and liver are what it is infected the way I understood them. I can only sleep sitting up and just for a short time. I did finally have a bowel movement (just what you all wanted to hear I am sure. lol) Which was the second day in a row. At no greater time in my life except when Larissa was a baby with Leukemia that I am so thankful for my connection with our Saviour Jesus Christ. I know he will guide me in any decision that I may have. The pain is getting a little less when I eat so that is better If I hear anything else I will let you know.
