    I am missing Barb
    has she taken another road trip or something?
    she never mentions arm pain and I believe she had a mastectomy too .

    I wondered about that too, but I think they were planning on the WHOLE month of June... at least that was my take on it.
    I'm sending well wishes to them for safe journey wherever they are at this time.
    I'd never seen her mention it either, Judy. I know you were on the brst cancer community, this the first you'd heard of any residual pain?

    Hi Kim on the breast cancer board there were a lot of women discussing the arm pain from having the lymph nodes stripped. so maybe one of them could help .
    I dodged that part of breast cancer by being very curious about treatments etc and decided not to go through with what my doc at that time wanted a radial mastectomy and lymph nodes stripped . I sought second opinions and got instead a double lumpectomy with a centinal node biopsy
    it was all I needed at that time ..

    Great googly moogly! I miss one day and you send out a search party. LOL! Had a busy day yesterday and never got on here. I've been wondering about Barb too. Hopefully, she'll be back with us soon. I don't think she mentioned how long she'd be gone.

    Thanks for missing me, muuuuaaahh!

    Ha ha ha, I tell ya, you miss a day and they don't know where your at, they come looking for you. ha ha ha! I love it!!

    I had a lumpectomy Judy. They ONLY took the suspisisious lump out. That's been over 35 years ago. I never had radiation or anything else. Just that lump removed.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -186; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Hi Ausgram maybe your lump was not cancer most aren;t

    Mine were so tiny only 1 centimeter each in same breast
    one of them my body had built a case around it to protect me
    so I decided that;s all I needed was the double lump removal
    I reluctantly agreed to the radiation..
    that was spring and summer of 2007

    Here's her last post and dated 2 months ago.
    She expected to be gone at least one month. I've been thinking of her too. Here's to hoping they are having a good time wherever they are!

    2 months ago Will be MIA............. Geting ready for travel time for at least a month. Busy packing and planning. Not sure what DH has planned for us, yet!

    Keep going on your healthy journeys!

    Well, gosh, Debbie, you're always HERE! How could I NOT miss you?
    Well, if you were busy.... I suppose that's a viable reason.... maybe...

    Sounds like you had a good day though, and you got some super great goodies, grats!

    I wish she'd have at least had SOME idea as to where they were going.... but you're right. Two months is too long.

    Here we are , all missing the crap outta her and she'll prolly return with windblown hair and rosy cheeks and a youthful grin, to tell us she fell off the back of the bike somewhere between Italy and France and found her way to a flower festooned cottage in a meadow of wildflowers, only to find that noone was home. So she fell asleep and when she awoke , either three bears or 7 dwarfs held her hostage until she taught them "the ways of the JOURNEY"...... lol

    Barb, if you're reading this , step on in and take over the story any time , sweetheart!!
