Tired, Tired of Being Tired, but not Quitting
December 12, 2015
Low Iron. I can relate to that!! While my doctor was only in General Practitioner or M.D. she realized on visit that my hemoglobin levels so low she couldn't believe I could stand, let alone care for my kids by walking to the grocery store. But like you said "Really don't have a choice" and that is what I told my doctor! Nobody will take care of my kids for me, so I have no choice! Low Iron should be strictly watched in other areas of the body. Meaning your surviving why not take care of other possibilities, since that will help. Also, watching any chemical additives in foods, and surprisingly our drinking water, or how to ...

Right again. We offer our help to elder family, but they won't take it. This makes doing good deeds more difficult to accomplish. Once that offer is not needed I usually rejected in some way. So, this comment is for those stubborn folks!

It was worth all the "begging" because the surgery was also successful. You can do it!! - Angel

The Never-Ending Cancer Guilt Trip
December 08, 2015
Thank you for sharing your story. Your choice for surgery likely saved your life! The recommended procedure is exactly what I would have done too. No time to waste in that choice, so I agree with your husband and Doctor. The surgical approach in my care was as blunt, but in different internal organs. Today, I credit my survival to the Doctor's, Nurses, and wonderful Staff at a couple Hospitals, my favorite one being Memorial Hospital in Kern County. The Hospital is amazing Catholic group whose main base is non profit. With that said, it really is more affordable. -Angel
