As The Cancer Takes its Toll on my Body
Hey guys and Gals and all my friends. The last few days I am seeing a real change in my body healthwise. A little update as I think I may take a break for some time from all of you and its actually making me sad that I will miss you all.
This is the round about way of saying I love you all and thank you from my heart. Besides my cancer which you guys are aware of I also have a issue with every joint in my body. I was found to suffer from an unknown, never seen before joint inflamation. Thats how the Mayo Clinic sent the report back as UNSPECIFIED CRYSTALS OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN. Just to be able to move I take Prednisone and now my Doctor says I am the longest person to ever take the drug for this long. It has caused me to lose all My calcium strength and now have 7 broken teeth along with the burning mouth syndrome...Thats is fucking Painful...Google that crap........
Anyway I also have a little blood in the urine and honestly did not want to get out of bed today. I have decided to live with the teeth pain for now as the cancer is taking its toll. Now you all know I am a fighter and for the reason I fight. Her name is @lynncoyle1 and she is my life, lover and best friend. I am now since she is so happy and cares for you all here passing you all the torch to keep her company. When this all started the told me in 5 years you will start to go downhill. Well they were right but huh, SCREW YOU CANCER!!!!!!!!! Its 6 years and I beat the odds. I am hoping to not go yet and continuing to fight but I am needing to back away. I am so tired and no energy..........I am needing her to even help me out of bed and to the bathroom at times. Now you know why I wrote that post about being a burden.
Anyway when the cancer came I was healthy and weighed 230 lbs.....Now I weigh 126...........It really blows. The prednisone and all my other pills are taking a faster toll than the cancer and unknown shit as I call it.
There is no reason to even mention names but I love you all and think of you as friends no matter where in the world you are........I am going to mention a couple names and please realize that all of you mean so much to me. I need to say thank you to @davemccoy for the idea and post he did to help me. I need to thank @donkeypong and @analisa on a post where there vote was enought to pay a months prescriptions. Then there is @edprivat whose songs he did for me as a dedication to Lynn gave me strength and motivation. Now there are so many more and you all know who you are and the help and encouragement you have provided I am saying has kept me going and living. Please forgive me for not mentioning each name as I do not have the energy but You and I know who you are.
I also want to say that I know lynn works hard here but you all got to know she is an Angel sent to guide me and I am so grateful for the love and support you have given her. Each day we sit and talk about you all and want to help you if ever needed. I truly meant in my blog about what Steemit means to me. I am sorry that I will not be able to see you in person as I think everyday of your friendships. I know You all better keep the porch light on once I am gone because I know my girl and she is the type to show up and hug you in person, again you all know who you are.
I am really going on about nothing as I do not want my posts to end but in the meantime I need to rest. I am sorry if I have not got to thank some of you here for help and support but I am in my heart so thankful, grateful and I have the upmost respect for you all..
Remember this saying we have heard before
LIVE , LOVE, LAUGH..... because Life is shorter than we all think
be safe and again I hope to see you all soon.
Maybe a short rest for a bit will do me good.......regardless I will miss you all until then.
