Just a hello for Tagit and Lemoneater


No sir, I haven’t gave up on Caps or been lurking under another name, although I have a few. My wife was diagnosed with cancer again after a six year remission period back in October. Then on Thanksgiving Day 2011 her 30 yr old son unexpectedly passed away from a heart condition. Needless to say the last 4 months have been very challenging. However, things are looking more positive as time passes; the chemo treatments are going well and she’s on the road to recovery. After catching up a bit on caps. and reading your post I had no idea about the lemoneater, so, my thoughts go out to her and her family too. I hope she has a successful and speedy recovery. To be cancer "Free" is our motto...

I appreciate the “shout out” per say and the kind hello. Let’s just say for now I’m taking a break from the stock market and keeping up with Caps, but, I shall return..... indeed.

It's good to hear from you Tagit, but sorry to hear why you have been taking a break.

Your wife will be in my prayers along with Lemoneater, may the Lord be with both of them, as well as you and her husband.  

For those who do not know, I am sure Lemoneater would not mind my sharing that her treatment is also going well

My condolances to your wife for the loss of her son. It is especially hard to lose a child, what ever their age.

Let us hear from you from time to time when you get a chance.

The market will wait, family always comes first.

Until later,

Jim (Teacherman1)

Thanks for the kind wishes, Tagit. Glad that your wife's treatment is going well. I'm on the TAC regimen which is being extremely effective against my triple negative cancer. I like to think about my medicine in this way

*Taxol tells my cancer cells not to reproduce by stopping the microtubules which are essential to mitosis otherwise known as cell division.

*Adriamycin sneakily enters the cancer's DNA and tricks it by saying "This cell is fatally damaged beyond repair." The cancer cell panics and says: "I thought I was immortal, but now I'm going to die. I cannot bear the thought so I will commit suicide."

*Cytoxin arrests any speeding cells and says: " You broke the speed limit for growth. You must be a criminal. You're dead." The poor hair cell says "Officer, I'm innocent", but Cytoxin replies: "My orders are to arrest and execute anyone suspicious. You look like you could be cancer so too bad!"

There, now you've met the Terrible Trio. TAC is a fearsome enemy, but a helpful ally. Just after one treatment my tumor shrank significantly. Praise the Lord!

May your wife soon be cancer free. Wishing you all a much better 2012!

Sad to hear about your family's loss on Thanksgiving day. I cannot even imagine what it would be like to lose a son. I lost my grandmother near Christmas one year when I was 18 so that holiday is bittersweet as I think about the happy memories with her.

Take care! Lemoneater

Just wanted to pop in and say thanks to all for the support and wishing you all better health and success in 2012.

Lemon, my wife is in on taxol and cytoxin as she refused the red devil treatment. She also enjoyed reading your thoughts on each medication and wanted me to tell you thanks, it made her smile. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Teach, you da man as always and you’re correct…family is everything. But, sometimes life catches you off guard as it’s so predictably unpredictable.

Fool on...

:) Glad that I made your wife smile. Some of my co-workers, relatives, and friends have had the oddest ideas about chemo, so I wrote that explanation and e-mailed it to everyone so they wouldn't worry as much.

Thanks again for your encouragement. I will be sure to pray for your wife. Lemoneater
