    I am fighting appendiceal cancer. It is one of the “orphan” cancers, with only 2 per million in the population. Usually found when fixing something else - in my case a gallbladder that needed to come out. I need to get thru 6 round of Folfox chemo (nasty stuff), then a huge surgery called HIPEC, then more chemo. I have already been blessed by having the large cancer institute near me recruit a specialist, who came here in January - a huge blessing, since insurance could deny the surgery as “out of area/out of network” otherwise. They found the cancer in April, but were not sure what kind until June. I had 3 failed rounds of chemo while they were figuring out what kind it was, & am about to start my 5th round of the Folfox.
    I would really appreciate your prayers.

    The chemo session went well. So far, so good. I was quite nauseated on the drive home, but when I got home & took a phenergan, it fixed that, & I was able to keep down what I ate today.

    Thank you all for the prayers. I can literally feel the Lord watching over me. I hope, & put that hope into action by doing my part in going thru chemo, but the results are up to the Lord, as they always have been. We only have the chemo treatments because He inspired someone to discover them after all, each of us has a time appointed, & if this is my time, His will be done

    I am in the hospital again; they are looking at putting in a PICC line for nutrition, since I cannot seem to keep enough down.

    prayers for you! does cannabis pills help? they give them up here for nausea for cancer patients. doesn't have the stuff to make you high in it

    PICC line went in well, so even with n/v, my body has something to work with from the IV nutrition. Martha, I have no idea if cannabis pills would help. They are illegal here, & back in the day, I never used it as a teen when it was popular, so who knows?

    Came home yeasterday evening. Still dealing with all the nausea issues, but the home health RN came to teach DH how to flush the blood draw side of the PICC line & how to put the TPN in the pump. Still dealing with the nausea issues, but slept far better in my own bed - a tender mercy from the Lord, for which I am grateful.

    zohner- glad you are home. It is always so much more comforting to be in your own surroundings! Hopefully the nausea will pass. Will nibbling a saltine help?
