  • GIST Sarcoma (gastrointestional stromal tumor) & Thyroid Cancer

    My diagnosis
    Added Aug 10, 2014

    I was diagnosed with two cancers four months apart after 5 years of severe anemia, fatigue and many hospital stays for gastrointestinal hemorrhages. My anemia is fully resolved since my GIST tumor was removed and I am much better. I am still trying to get the thyroid medicine sorted out after the thyroidectomy. It’s hard not having a thyroid now…

    Added Jan 19, 2014

    I have many baseball caps, for warmer weather, and have so many knitted hats for colder weather. I also had fun buying hats at Kohls when they were on sale. My mantra thru all this is that it is temporary. My hair will grow back. I am thankful I have a curable disease and all my side effects will eventually disappear. You need to put things…

    My diagnosis
    Added May 30, 2011

    My surgeon was standing on the other side of the room with his back to me when he opened the file and delivered the news. I’d had a lump for 3 years that everyone believed was just scar tissue because it varied from invisible to benign looking on all the tests. I finally insisted they just take the darn thing out so I’d stop worrying about it….

    The Best Christmas Gift Ever

    My diagnosis
    Added Dec 15, 2010

    I’m not a fan of Christmas presents that cost a lot of money. I don’t get involved in the mall shopping hustle and bustle. I love to hear Christmas music and see all the beautiful lights but am not part of the billion dollar shopping hype. We’re always trying to think of gifts we can give that have a more important meaning than material things….

    My diagnosis
    Updated Jan 12, 2010

    “Your case is… interesting.” This is the last thing you really want to hear a doctor say to you… ever.
