    The Fall colors are so beautiful. With all the rain we are having, there are bare trees here because all the leaves are falling in abundance.

    That is a cute display.

    Do you all celebrate NYE with friends or family or in front of the TV? I haven't gone out for NYE in 20 years lol and usually just watch the ball drop in NYC on TV. I love having something to look forward to. Hopefully by then I will have something to wear that fits.
    Haven't been out on NYE in years- I'm afraid of the drunk drivers, so we watch the ball come down on the TV.

    Since my Dh and myself are newbies on SS I read the link Y/N provided and kinda shocked! Is it like this all the time? The give and take from your SS?

    I had a dog who went into false labor the day I went to the hospital to have my first baby. She didn't come out of her corner until I got home.

    Our infamous prisoner is at it again according to Juan's Support Page on FB. Apparently she wants a copy of his book for "camera inspection", thinks he may have used information that is protected. A motion was filed October 21. I guess Beth Karas has the motion on her site, but I don't have access there. What else can she do to pass her days but file wasteful motions? She should cover Juan's book in her book club.

He asked about life/death percentage, and the doctor said 80% to live, 20% die; so that seems like a GOOD percentage for this, I believe! My Bro-in-law has lived with his prostate cancer for at least 7 years now, so I'm hoping this pill will help reproduce some red blood cells for the Huz, and he can get on living! He's going to have a MRI done - they have to call us to set up an appointment; also the hematologist checked his prostate and it is of normal size, it's not enlarged - so I guess that is a good sign, right?

    Zuri - what do you think?

    Will have to wait for tomorrow for your answer.... as I'm about to log off now!

    See you all tomorrow!

    So sorry to hear this news. The only thing I can do is pray for you and your DH that the MD is correct about the 80%.

    Here are some articles on Prostate cancer and bone metastasis for you to read so you can be informed when your DH sees his MD:

    When they cook dinner and call me to eat,

    I'll sit close to the TV, through channels I'll click,
    I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
    I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
    And play in the mud 'til the end of the day!

    And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
    I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
    My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,
    And say with a groan, "She's so sweet when she's sleeping!"

    I was going to post this at another time, but I think this is appropriate now:

    Nasty children, IMO- telling us what to do when we are old- after we've done everything for them (for years!!)

    I'm gonna buy TV dinners when my younger son leaves (one day ).


    Maybe what my aging mother needs is to get back into the kitchen

    "...We’re standing in her narrow, silver-wallpapered Manhattan galley kitchen, peering into the refrigerator: In it is a pint of takeout chicken soup from a nearby deli, a few slices of white bread, a candy bar, three eggs and a pickle. Behind me is a spice rack holding a jar of parsley that has turned white since its purchase in 1981, and dried sage as flavorful as sawdust. I’ve recently made the shocking suggestion to my mother that if she, in her late 70s, is in good enough physical shape to spend an afternoon marching around Saks Fifth Avenue, she can certainly stand at the stove for a little while..."

    But the background (there's so much more to the story)

    This is a new monthly column exploring the author’s struggles to fortify her aging mother.

    Part 1: I need to feed my mother, but sometimes I think she’d rather starve

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...4f9_story.html

    Part 2: Her least favorite food is just what the doctor ordered

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...44e_story.html

    Part 3: Why won’t she eat? Maybe it’s because she’s lonely.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...e0e_story.html

    Part 4: The one thing she’ll devour: Roast chicken

    These articles are really good, well written and easy to understand. I just read the In Depth article and learned a lot. Thank you for posting these as I know Niner will appreciate them, and they also can serve as a reminder for those of us with men in our lives that they too need to be on top of their prostate health.

    As women, we seem to start out so much earlier having reproductive health exams and mammograms and are more conscientious it seems. This has provided us an opportunity to ask the questions we probably haven't thought to ask such as when was your last physical and did you get a PSA drawn. At least I haven't and I have no excuse. IMO

    Cool

    Morning!

I hope Zuri can add some feedback for us. Good luck to you and your Huz, Niner. At least we are now working with a diagnosis and proper treatment can begin.
    YES! Have an answer after almost 4 months... not one I was looking forward to, but the Huz seems okay with the odds.

    Quote Originally Posted by Zuri

    It sounds like your DH is going to need more testing, especially with his other underlying medical problems, to develop a treatment plan. Typically, a chemo drug like Lupron, an anti testosterone producing drug, can be given orally.

    The fact that your husband is young is a good thing. Hopefully the doctors can control the spread of the cancer in the bones and to other organ systems. No wonder he was in so much pain. They will know a whole lot more when they do the MRI. I hope he will continue to see his cardiologist as well for his arrythmias and his team can put it all together for both of you.

    Regretfully, I had suspected something like this might be part of the problem. I apologize for having given you very vague answers before, but I simply could not give you the differential diagnoses that included this possibility.

    For me personally, this news is heartbreaking as I know you are in for a long haul of up and down appointments and treatments with your husband. Your generosity of spirit and love of life is so contagious and is actually the best medicine for your DH. Prostate CA is a very treatable form of cancer and it is my hope and prayers that your DH will be amongst that 80% and they can stop it dead in its track.

    Whatever you need, whatever we can do from this virtual universe, please let us know. I have briefed my DH MD on your latest news and he joins me in sending JINGLES (definitely my word, not his, but his sentiment lol) your way for both of you. Xoxoxoxo
    Yes on the hematoligist and oncologist will explain it more for us. And now waiting for the Imaging place to call for an appointment for the MRI - keeping my fingers crossed that it has NOT spread more than it has... (hmmm... could have sworn there was a smilie for crossed fingers, but I can't seem to find it!)
    The hematologist has prescribed a pill that starts with Bi - I'm picking those up in about an hour; I'll let you know the actually name!
    Thank you for the hope and prayers that the Huz will be amongst that 80% !!
    and JINGLES are good - I told him everyone here is sending him Jingles, and he asked WHAT is that! LOL! I had to explain that one to him! And he says ALL!!!!!

    Quote Originally Posted by Zuri
    Niner, did the hematologist mention anything about a bone marrow transplant once they start your DH on chemo? And does California have a bone marrow donor bank?

    This is kinda out of my DH's wheelhouse as he is a GP and is more involved in the front end work up and diagnosis part of cancer. It sounds as though your husband is in good hands. I have woken my husband up 4 times with a ton of questions since I read your post so hopefully I can get more coherent answers tomorrow.

    What I do know is that your attitude and positivity will be the best medicine your DH could ever have. How lucky he is to have you. Xo
    Yes, they do, as my sister had a bone marrow donor here for her cancer. A German lady was a match!

    Okay - just returned from the pharmacy and the pills he will be taking are Bicalutamide 50 mg. This is the hormone treatment combo. I told him he would have hot flashes too, and he said at least I won't be cold all the time!

    We were supposed to have rain... but nothing fell here... it looks like a mass of green for us on Sunday though! So I'll only have to water tomorrow and than can wait for the rain!

    Okay - off I go to my other threads - and HOPING I can get to "Advanced" to post a sharing picture! This one made me

    Morning all, has anyone seen Bernina? Kissy is due and she's got a whole lot going on.

    Spell, our winds are very high today with more rain moving in on Friday. You probably have the winds from Hurricane Patricia. That doesn't sound nice does it? LOL

    Coffee, you little baby is so weet looking in his new jersey.

    Dasiymae, how is that shoulder?

    YesorNo, I keep missing. Seems like we have different hours and forums some days.

    Niner hugsa nd I'll find a song for you.

    GigiG, glad to see you and your humor back. We did notice we have had quite a few that have flown the coop for a break.

    Zuri, this is for you. When I see a hore or anything hors, I now think of you and Brock? And I think of how giving you are. You give all, and you don't ask for much than being a friend. By the way, did you see on the last thread that my grandson wants fro Christmas? An anvil and a forge.
