I am at a lost for words. Actually close to tears - it is regarding my husband bloodwork.

I find "doing my research" to be the funniest line of 2021. πŸ˜…
Sooooo you would go for anything someone told you about your health before doing a bit of research? I was told I had a certain autoimmune disease years ago.. I did my research - by the time my doc called me, I already knew I did not have it and she confirmed I didn't. If research is funny to you, that is your right... let's get a good laugh 🀣🀣🀣

???????? I was just responding to your post? Why bring the Lord into it...no disrespect. He has mercy on us all. We all have a right to our opinion once someone post something...whether we agree or disagree. That is the wonderful thing about opinions.... we all have a right to our own.
Why do we pray Lord have mercy?


In our Catholic faith, after we pray the Confiteor during Mass, asking God to forgive us our sins, we pray Lord, Have Mercy. In asking God for His mercy, we acknowledge that He is God and He alone has the power to forgive our sins and grant us mercy and eternal life.

We are all sinners.

We do the same in my Episcopal faith.

It could be the vaccine. If I were to take a new drug, and then I start experiencing changes, the first thing I will check is that new drug. Right? That drug could have caused the new changes. The same could happen with the vaccine. So if it were me, and my blood tests were off kilter after taking the vaccine, then I would definitely pursue it with the doctor to find out the reason why. Everyone is different and reacts differently. You and your husband know what's best for you. Good luck!

I don't think it was the new meds. He had not started taking them prior to him losing weight. I noticed a difference after the vaccine. However, I am not sure if it was the vaccine and I doubt if his dr will connect the dots... will be pretty hard to detect if it was the vaccine...jmo. Thank you. He was on board of taking the booster shot but changed his mind due to issues he is currently having.

My hubby Oncology appt is early next month - November (he got the call for his appt today). We had a talk tonight. I ask him deep down do he feel he need the appt - he said yes because of unexplained weight lost. Him and I are on the same page... we both hope they do not find something that is not there just for the $$$$$$$. He said if they find something - he will get a second opinion. πŸ’ž Thank you all for your care and concern - means a lot. Not sure how to tell my daughter what her dad is going through. She lives on her own. I thought I would wait until I know something definite????

I was probably asking God for mercy during this trying time. For all of the negativity, arguing and confusion as well. I always say, "Lord have mercy."
Again, I was responding to your post. Was your post negative, confusing, argumentative? There was no argument from me - I just posted my opinion which you ask how we feel about your post.

A few years ago I had a lot of unexpected weight loss. I could eat at least 5000 calories a day, but the weight just fell off me. I totally took advantage of the situation πŸ˜‚. Eating a lot of sweets which normally would pack the pounds on. Sadly after 3 months I started to regain weight.

I was sent to a cancer center where they did not find cancer, and no reason was found for the weight loss. I regain most of the weight. Since I was 19 I thought I had cancer, (won’t explain here). Couple years ago, a doctor agree to send me back to the cancer center due to my belief.

This time the proper test was done, the cancer was diagnosed. But the weight loss I experienced was not connected to the cancer I have. Go figure πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

As for telling your daughter, I would tell her. I found my children want to be kept in the loop and resent when they are not told things. They are adults and hate being treated like a children. But your family may be different.

Sorry to hear of your Cancer dx. I am keeping my daughter informed. His main concern is the weight lost. I remember I had a huge weight lost about 10 yrs ago. It was due to stress and a bit of depression. I did not have an appetite. However, my hubby situation is different. He does not miss a meal and is not depressed - he may be a little depressed of the unknown. Hopefully he will begin to gain weight soon.
