I am also back after illness and catching up.

Post by Brendas Babies »

I found out a year ago I had breast cancer. It has been a tough journey but God has taken away all the cancer. I have finished chemo. I would have had some more immunotherapy treatments but the last one caused heart failure. I have a consult to see if my heart can take the radiation or not.
We went on vacation last week. And I slipped and broke my foot! So I am on here to trying to catch up with everyone.
Are others just selling on Facebook? Or is there a page everyone goes to? I prefer this forum. Everyone together. Plus being here since pretty much the beginning, it is a special place with a lot of special ladies!

Welcome back Brenda. So glad to hear you are cancer free. Sadly many people have left this forum for Facebook. I agree with you. I prefer this forum for sharing my dolls.
Hugs,

I am glad you are back and cancer free! :foryou:
Doll-Fan feels more comfortable to me than Facebook, even though both have great dolls to see!
Take care!

Glad to see you back and cancer free. I like this form so much more than Facebook. Always felt everyone was very supportive of each other and you felt safe selling and showing babies on here.

Brenda, I am so happy that you are cancer free. I am also happy to see you back on the forum. The forum has changed a lot these past few years but it is still my favorite doll place. I will only sell or buy dolls on here. I don't trust FB or Ebay. The ladies on here are like family.

Such good news to hear you are cancer free! yay! I am sorry about your foot though ~ I think a lot of people are on FB and instagram, but like you I still love this forum and will continue to let it be auto-renewed. If even just for nostalgic reasons! I feel there is a level of honesty and trust among members here that I truly appreciate <3

Thank you all! I may still have to have radiation. I have a consult next month. Since the cherno gave me heart failure, it is iffy.
I am still hobbling around here in my boot!
I agree about Doll Fan. I have been here too long to ever leave. I am always glad to see my dear friends that have been here a long time with me.

Chemo also gave me heart failure, but God is good! He has gotten me through it all. I saw an Orthopedic Dr. here, today and she said The bone I broke is normally hard to heal but mine is healing up really nicely.
Thankfully I won’t have to wear the Robocop boot too long. LOL!

Welcome back & Congrats on being cancer free!!!! What a miracle that is. All the Glory to God!

I've been collecting just a few years now, and I love this forum. I don't have Facebook, or any other social media accounts. I try them but they aren't for me. I like this place too I just wish it was more active and more people would come.

Hope to see some of your collection. Take care.

:D I was SO happy to see you back and posting, Brenda. You are quite the warrior, and I know that you can win against this awful foe. I think that there are quite a few breast cancer survivors here on DF and I am among them. I am cheering for you all the way! Welcome back and healing prayers for a continuing full recovery and a long, happy, healthy life are on their way!!

:heart: :foryou: :heart: Hugs and Blessings, Dion

Good Heavens Brenda, you’ve really had a time of it. I’m so sorry to hear about all of your health problems. So scary. I’m glad you’re doing better and I hope you continue to improve daily.

I think a whole lot of ladies have gone to Facebook and this Doll Fan just isn’t what it used to be. There is also a “Doll Fan” group on Facebook and I think that’s where a lot of them are.

Take care of yourself.
Hugs, Erin
HAVE A WONDERFUL DOLLY DAY!!

Thank you KLynn, Dion, Erin and KD!
I am so greatful to God for healing. Now to find out if I will be having radiation, on Wed. Please pray for God’s will on that one. I don’t know how to pray for that one.
Good news is I have lost a lot of weight! I can’t recommend the diet though.

Hi Brenda - happy to hear from you. Sorry to hear you had to go thru the whole breast cancer thing, but am glad that you are cancer free now. I too was diagnosed with breast cancer - in Dec of 2017. Thankfully they found it early, so I didn't need chemo - but did have 15 radiation treatments. I'm on Tamoxifen and will be on it for 5 years total. (2 1/2 years of it to go) Sorry about your foot, but glad to hear it is healing up nicely.

Thank you Teri!
I was behind on getting my mammograms so mine was a stage 2.i am in the middle of radiation now. Then I should be thru with treatments. They haven't mentioned putting me on the pills. I am glad you didn't have to go through chemo.
And very grateful you are doing well. God is good!
