Have you tried a weighted blanket? My Mom sleeps with one to keep the neuropathy from keeping her awake at night. For her it helps.



Have a great trip.

Marsha, I wanted to check in and see how you are doing.

My mother was diagnosed w/ MM back in December 2010. She just had to take a break from chemo because her platelets remain so low plus the neuropathy got really bad in her feet (completely numb) and legs (hurt a lot). They say cycle 4 is where it really kicks in bad. We go back to the onc on 6/20, and they will re-run her blood to see if she can start back. She hopefully gets her port in on 6/21 becasue her veins are shot. Wish we had done that at the beginning.

She just turned 74 yesterday. Her chemo consists of melphelan/prednisone/velcade, plus monthly Zometa infusions. She just started neurontin to see if helps w/ the neuropathy.

Prayers and good thoughts for you! (((hugs)))

Cruise was fun and met some really nice people... I am glad I did it, I loved Seattle and would definitely love to go back there sometime..

I do not see my oncologist again until the middle of June, when I do, I will post an update.. The neuropathy goes on.. but other than that I feel relatively ok... missing my guy and living my life..

Everyone keep the faith and go for the gusto,
Marsha

"Marsha, where are you..."

Does anyone have an update on Marsha/still keep in touch? Marsha was always a blessing to so many, despite her own hardships. I am SO hoping that against all odds, things finally improved for her. I would love to know how she is!

Things have improved for her, she is with her beloved Tommy again.
Marsha passed away.

I miss my sweet DIS friend.

Marsha's Tommy has been gone 3 years ago yesterday October 1 and she has been gone since July 13 this year.

They were wonderful people and the only consolation I have on their loss is the fact that they are reunited in Heaven....

Thank you for the info - I feared as much. I guess I will adopt the attitude shared by you and TruBlu and take solace in the fact that they are reunited once again.

So well written Carol.............

I find myself thinking of them so often during the day, and smile when I think of her meeting Tommy again.
