I'm so sensitive to anti-histimines - if I take 1/4 of a BABY Benadryl I will pass out for two days so I just suffer.

Even Advil knocks me out[/QUOTE]

When I had Lasik surgery I was given a Vallium pill and was told to go home and fall asleep. HA! I was so restless that I finally got up (with my eyes covered tightly of course). Next day for my Dr. appt. I asked about the pill and was told it might keep a 300 lb. truck driver awake, but surely not someone my size. I'm a 4.

Yes, that restriction was not included in the list of requirements this year.

Ann (annsforte3) has asked me to share my cancer story. You can see that my avatar features my bald head - pic taken on my wedding day 07/13/12.

In Oct. 2011 I had my usual GYN check-up and mammogram with nothing unusual noted. I was feeling pretty fine for a 57 year old post-menopausal woman with no history of smoking, regular physical activity (golfing 2-3 times a week), just lost 20 pounds and down to a sporty weight of 160 pounds on a 5' 6" frame with no further need for high-blood pressure pills. I was in a loving, long-term relationship with my sexy soul mate of 18 years. Working full time, planning for retirement. Life was good.

My health plan, Kaiser Permanente, sends everyone over the age of 50 a birthday present - a home test kit to sample fecal matter for occult blood. In January, when I turned 58, I dutifully sent mine in, expecting the same result as the last 8 years - negative. To my surprise I had a positive test - blood was identified in my stool sample and a colonoscopy was ordered to determine the cause.

In early February, 2012, I had the colonoscopy. While still under the influence of the sedating drugs in the recovery room the MD told my sweetheart and me that he had found a suspicious lump and was sending tissue for biopsy. We would have results in about a week. He actually found the lump before he started the colonoscopy. He explained that he starts the procedure with a digital rectal exam and that was when he noted a small lump at the anal verge, about 1.5 inches inside the anal opening. Later, while pondering all this new information, I recalled that at my last PAP test and exam the OB-GYN did not do a rectal exam. I wondered if this tumor would have been found earlier if that quick step had been taken.

When we got the results is was positive: squamous cell cancer of the anus, Stage 2 by size of the tumor, no lymph node involvement, no metastases. In cancer talk= S2-N0-M0. Interestingly, I was not shocked, scared or devastated. I took the news pretty calmly. During the week we were waiting, I had been burning up the internet and learning all I could about this rare type of cancer. Breast cancer strikes 1 in 8 women. Colorectal cancer hits about 1 in 20 people. Anal cancer is about 1 in 200,000 people with equal distribution among men and women. The last 2 inches of the alimentary canal is a special bit of biological equipment with unique treatment concerns to maintain its function.

Without going into too many of the gory details (although if you know of someone who is going through this type of cancer I would be so happy to help them in any way), it was a very grueling treatment regime of radiation and chemotherapy which brought me many excruciatingly painful side effects, two near-death hospital stays for neutropenia fever, and permanent changes to form and function. BUT - I made it!!!

I am now 3+ years post-treatment. My rectal surgeon gives me an anal exam every 6 months and last visit he told me that I have a 95% chance of complete remission. Of course, all cancer survivors know of NED - the magical 5 year mark of "no evidence of disease". If all continues well I will meet NED on 06/22/17.

My message to other women and men - Do not ignore the early diagnostic procedures your health plan offers! Do the labs, take the tests, have the procedures. They could save your life --- they saved mine!

My wedding? Well, after two close brushes with death we decided that it would be a shame for me to die and he wouldn't qualify for my social security benefits. After all our wonderful years of non-marriage (We kept saying that marriage might mess up a good thing!) and surviving cancer together we figured we could give it a whirl and what better date than Friday the 13th to say "I do". We had a lovely ceremony at the court house with my parents in attendance. Private, personal, perfect.

UGH! I have to take a LOT of meds for them to work. With my recent hand surgery 2 Percocet plus advil did NOTHING for me. I'm just freakin' glad that I can double up on Excedrin migraine for headaches and it works!

Sonja,
I am so glad you had that test and that you are with us now to share your brave story of surviving!! Tears were in my eyes when you spoke of the pain and side effects.

My spouse has been cancer free for 13 years now, he had prostate cancer, fully engulfed and at only 48 years old. Our 25 wedding anniversary was spent in the hospital having it removed.

He was getting up a few more times then normal to go to the bathroom at night so our doctor did some checking and just had a feeling something wasn't right. Not high PSA's but he pushed for my spouse to have more tests done! Saved his life, we were told that it would have moved to his back if it had not been caught and then it would not have been long for him.

So, my message too is do not ignore those early signs and do have testing done if something just doesn't feel right!

Many thanks, Sonja for helping with the card drive and for being so brave, sharing your story, and giving us a picture of yourself and spouse!!

Sonja,

Thank you for sharing your story with us. It is definitely a story with a happy ending and a message. Thank you for encouraging us and probably many others to get checked regularly and in every way possible. If you don't know your family history, as I do not, that's another reason to be all the more diligent. I'm so glad you are doing well. What a great picture of you and your "sexy soul mate".

{{Hugs}}!!

Wow Sonja. So thankful that your story has a happy ending. My parents condo/apartment is in Chicago about a mile from the Northwestern University Hospitals. They have hosted MANY people over the years, including some who were in Chicago for cancer treatment. It was good for my mom to have Barb to talk to as they both went through treatment over the 4 1/2 years of Mom's breast cancer. Barb would spend weeks at a time in their guest room when she would come for her cycles of chemo/radiation. Barb was finally through her treatments for her primary cancer when she developed an anal cancer too. When I saw her at Mom's funeral, she looked great. Dad thinks she's doing well. It was the first time I'd seen her with hair. Praying she'll be a success story too.

I got yesterday's card done and uploaded and blogged, but that's it for me for now. A busy toddler is full of "NO" and stomps of the feet today down in the studio. Argh!! So I'm off to bake some pumpkin bread…she never minds being in the kitchen with me for some reason.

Wow! That's an awesome list! I would love to get me some of those chameleon pens but I imagine those are for queens and with surgery looming there's just no way I can create that last week. Good luck to everyone and I will go thank sponsors now!

Hey guys. Lydia has put together the Hostess Favorites Pinterest board. With a gallery as large as the HYCCT is, I saw quite a few amazing cards that I'd missed. Check it out!

Anyone who participates in HYCCT will be eligible to win a prize. All the participants will be entered into Lydia's magic drawing machine. However, for the higher level prizes only the queens will be entered.

Once all the challenges are over there will be a queen's thread started. Here, each person who has completed one separate card for each challenge will be asked to provide a link to a card for each challenge.

Oh, goodie. I want to be a Queen.

Does the Queen's thread open after Nov. 7- the final deadline? I will be sure to look for it.

Rest up??!!! 1 A. M., wide awake with songs from Pitch Perfect relentlessly blasting in my head, I give up on sleep and start bagging cards. Feeling smug (and mildly sleepy), an hour and a half later, I've 19 of my hycct cards (challenges to date, with some duplicates and extras), 19 of my swap buddies' stash cards, and 23 cards from our October BCA swap at a nearby craft store, which my buddies volunteered to Anderson, rather than take them home for their stashes.

Will you walk on by?
Don't you... forget about me...
Just the way you are...

Pitch Perfect nerds, do you know what I'm hearing?

I must sound like a crazy person. I guess I better try to get some zzz's...

When I saw the time stamp on your post I thought you were up mighty early but then I remembered you're in Oregon. We were fellow night owls last night. I got back close to midnight from driving DD back to college and got sucked into a movie that I was just going to watch for a few minutes while I wound down from the drive. 2 hours later I made myself go to bed but I definitely feel the need for a nap at some point today. On the positive side of it I did get a lot of commenting done...if anyone reads a comment from me that doesn't make sense just remember I was up later than I should have been.

Today's sketch looks really nice and it is always fun to combine withForums at Splitcoaststampers

Oh no, sorry to hear you had the opposite effect on the happy gas.

Another great day in HYCCT land seeing some great cards. Can't wait to see the great cards with today's challenge.

I hate laughing gas, too - it makes me angry... I CANNOT get my arms in contact with the freakin' armrests, and similar ridiculousness... (They really are resting on there, but I can't seem to feel it, so I get mad that my body is lying to me and I have no control. What can I say? I got issues!)

Sonja - beautiful story, and I hope that NED puts the "happily ever after" in there for you in a couple of years! Bravery and optimism abound - thank you for sharing!

I made three cards yesterday, but have to tweak one of them before I photograph and upload. I'm still six challenges behind, but I'm going to catch up now that DD and DGS have gone home (miss them already). I spent a good portion of Sunday letting him punch every shape I own and we made four Halloween cards for him to take home. His thoughts on all of it? "This is the best day EVER!!!"



Amazing what a three year-old can do with tape, punches, a MISTI and a grandma...

Will you walk on by?
Don't you... forget about me...
Just the way you are...

Pitch Perfect nerds, do you know what I'm hearing?

I must sound like a crazy person. I guess I better try to get some zzz's...

Oh Yeah,
I know what you are talking about...I have now seen the first movie about 6 times. Love it and the music!

Didn't like Pitch Perfect 2, tried to hard to recapture the fun of the first one!

So glad you got to play with your DGS in your stamp room...he will be enjoying that time for years to come and will want to play again when he returns. Making such great memories with you. Super cute cards you made with him too.
