My 74 Birthday.

So here I’m, 74 years old and I can walk, talk and write but I’m having difficulties wit breathing and swallowing. I’m in the Hospital. In one of the best Hospitals in Illinois. After 10 days of tests, scans, x-rays they come up with grim diagnosis: Terminal Lung Cancer. But they are not saying exactly what kind of cancer it is. Well, I don’t want more scans: like a brain scan and other inch by inch body scans… I’m going to a Rehab for reevaluation… I need to relax, take a deep breath 😦 let it all sink in, learn what options I have and then decide what I’m gonna do…

At first I accepted the grim prognosis. I told the Doctors: ” OK, if you say there is no cure,Then I want to be left alone. No chemo, no radiation, just give me something for pain and help with breathing….” So they put me on morphine. I can have a 1/2 a pill every 4 hours. It helps…. I’m talking to my Family and Friends that I’m ready to go to that better place any time. Because I’m really ready… But still I’m waiting…. I have to make final decision soon. Should I get up one more time and fight like I did 10 years ago, or give up…… I need few days….

So tomorrow is an Easter Sunday. Happy Easter everyone.

And tomorrow is my 74 Birthday. Happy Birthday to me anyway.

Thank you for visiting. God bless. Oneanna65

    Now, about cancer cures – focus on alkaline foods/drinks. Also, I hear hydroxychloroquine is good for lung issues – I can vouch for it being the best asthma medication I’ve ever taken. Hopefully, you can get someone to prescribe that for you… It isn’t expensive, but it tastes VERY BITTER! If can be made by simmering grapefruit and lemon peels for a couple hours (lid on pot).

  3. Hoping you will give Hoxsey a call… They gave my sister, nearly 5 more years than her Cancer Team… If you cannot travel, they will do ALL they can with the med. info available to them… It is affordable.. Please consider…
    Many receive, ‘a Red Sea miracle’!.. Thoughts and prayers in support of your decision… Deb

  4. Hello Anna, you and I have followed each other’s blogs for a long time now. I have always enjoyed reading your posts and I have always noted and valued your ‘likes’ for mine. I am very sorry to read your news and I want to wish you all the very best. You are in my thoughts.

  5. I support your decision to do what is right for you, whatever that may be. Accept or fight? Two very different energies. Take care of yourself. Hugs.

  6. Happy Birthday! Every day is a blessed gift in Christ Jesus. “Be strong and courageous, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

  7. I am wishing you the most wonderful Birthday.
    From our first breath, we are all headed for the same inevitable destination, our transport may arrive at different times but we on the same journey nonetheless…so gather joy wherever you may find it, drink fully, wringing out the every last drop, in every moment given.
    And, when you are called to travel on, know sweet friend, I’ll see you soon.

  8. Happy Birthday!
    Thank you all of your kindness. You have been an inspiration to many folks who read your blog.
    I will continue to pray for you.

    “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” 

  9. I hope you are better already. I just came by your blog. My advice would be to go off sweets. I told this to my sister, and she wouldn’t give up her chocolate every day. She told someone about my advice. She had stage four cancer. The persons she asked were professionals, and they said, “If she has an appetite, the don’t hinder her from eating what she wants. I hope you will beat your cancer. Will pray for you.

  10. Here now is yet another thing for you to learn.
    Your course has been rocky, and you have overcome many hardships.
    You have been an inspiration to so many, sharing thoughts on your blog.
    You are my hero. Not a superhuman superhero.
    You are a Champion of the Ordinary.
    I am honored to have shared this life and world with you.
    May God Bless.
