      Thank you Rosemow. I did enjoy the replay for sure. It looks fabulous and even helped me forget about the grueling day today. Been a long week - but I finally got my olestra implant which hopefully will rise up my white cell count to a safer level. Next Friday my team is doing some Catscans of the areas and see how things are looking. Before they were not speaking of radiation but this week doctor also mentions if the aggressive ones in my lymph glands show improvement they may be able to do some radiation on the slower growing non-aggressive 9 mm tumor I have in my right lung and shrink it. That is promising if I can also get my white cell count to a safer level. I sure hope so . It'd be nice to get rid of that big devil. They said it was too dangerous though with such a low white cell count.

      So weird is with Leukemia my white cells were too high and now they are dangerously low. Crazy the way cancer works. But on a great note this time I have a huge team of 16 Oncologists with a real full fledged cancer center. The place is the size of a City itself Big difference this time. So the travel and days and days of daily trips I hope pay off. THings have changed so much in the last 9 years and no nay sayers here.

      I too make sure I am there every schedule no matter what - my doctors say they are amazed I never balk at anything - if only they could look inside they'd see I do - I just keep it to myself. You are too afraid if you say no - well you will lose and I don't want to lose. So if i do, well I am not as brave as they think inside anyway - but I also will not lose and be the cause of it happening so I won't say no - no matter how like jelly I feel inside. This one is a no brainer - and you just have to do it. The only way to go is up and by golly be afraid but try is all I can think.

      So it was especially nice to get out of that mind thought today - every day this week I had chemo and today all this added info - and again Sims managed to somehow draw me away from it all with the new tool. I am not the builder many people are but I can dare to dream and it is a tool even I may be able to do something with. I can dream... So yes - Sims and Maxis again made my day and regardless what some people think of the Sims 4 - well I have very good reason I think of being happy it is what it is and it is still able to take me away from real life that is beyond scary and I sure wish wasn't my realism - but somehow Maxis made me think away from this and made my day better.

      Need finger crossed October 19th for the new Catscans and whitecell counts. Can sure use some wishful thinking from every one that day. Thanks in advance I feel strong in the power of many good thoughts ( I have to be careful what I call them here apparently but I hope you all get what I mean) L hopefully getting heard and that I am responding as my family and I hope. Can not even think what it means if I'm not. My kids are beside themselves in worry and there is nothing I can say to make it better. I need to make it better somehow - and Lord knows I want that too. I love life no matter what...

      Thankyou for posting about how you are feeling with how your health is, and details about your heath condition. May you have the strength that you need for each new day <3
    • Writin_Reg
      Writin_Reg
      Yes - I am sorry I could not post it in the post you made but I can't say much on the forum I guess. So the least I could do is put it on my wall - I am fighting as hard as I can. I do hope it is working. It's scary at times - not always bad but it will help make me less fearful if I am really responding - I cannot imagine how I will feel if I am not though. One day at a time - and hope it is working.

    I didn't want to derail the topic, so I hope that you don't mind that I sent you a private message?

    Your words from the other day have taken on a whole new meaning. I am so sorry to hear about your illness. It sounds as if you have fought this fight before? I pray that you're able to take all of the love and support that surrounds you, draw strength from it, and keep fighting like heck!

    You've always been one of my favorite simmers here for both Sims 3 and 4. I think you bring a great deal of insight into the game and you're quite often the voice of sanity. I'm so sorry to hear of your personal trials and am sending my prayers and good thoughts your way.

    I'm not sure if you were on the Sims 2 BBS back in the day. I sometimes miss that place.

      Yes Tremayne, I've been with the Sims since I tested the Original Sims game (Sims 1) for Will Wright in November of 1999. I have played and enjoyed them all. I keep Sims 2,3, and 4 on my pc and play them often. Mostly Sims 4 right now of course - but I do keep ongoing games ready to rejoin on my pc all the time. Thank you for you loving and kind words - definitely appreciate all the prayers and good thoughts. The Sims keep me sane - and always give me something to stay busy with - it helps the bad days for sure - most of the time. Thank you and hugs - Reggie.
  • CeleSeraphym
    Reg - I've been away from the forums here (on a regular basis) for several years now, but just started peeking in again recently. I wasn't aware of your cancer - I offer you my heartfelt wishes for successful treatments and comfort in pain and strength in weary times; you're a veteran who's been around the Simming community for a great long time. We've only crossed paths briefly here and there in the past, but I've known nothing but kindness and genuineness from your posts.

    I'm sorry that EA takes issue with religious sentiments on your personal board, but I'd like to add my prayers and positive thoughts to the others coming your way. I will especially be sending heartfelt good vibes and sincere prayers to you on the 19th.

    Lean on faith in the times when you feel you have little or nothing left to give, as well as the times when you feel on top of the world. Whatever that faith is for YOU, it will be there. It will NOT abandon you.

    Blessings and hugs from a Simming family member.

    You are in my prayers. I am hopeful for you. There are so many new treatments these days, and you are a fighter. I am sad that this has happened to you, but I am glad that this is a cancer that can be treated.

    Reg, you've been around a long time and highly respected by all us veteran players. You are in my prayers. We don't always agree, but the community would not be the same without you. You are part of our Simming Family and love you no matter how much we may ever disagree! Keep the faith and know sometimes, somewhere in a different state or part of the world someone is asking for blessings for you and in our hearts and prayers.

It's just sweet to my heart and soul all the wonderful, warm thoughts - it makes me smile and strengthened through each day. Again thank you - and everyone. Love and hugs all around. Reggie.
  • ehaught58
    Awww... Reg, I am sorry I missed this, as I have been busy supporting my brother-in-law for the past 6 weeks who is fighting throat cancer. :( We were friends even before I met and fell in love with his sister. That was over 40 years ago. He is one of my oldest friends... I can feel your pain through him, old friend. As I keep telling my bro, hang in there.... technology has come a long way. We have to have hope and faith... I will pray for you, Reg.

      Oh I totally understand, Ed. Thank you so much for the prayers - we can never have too many for sure. Cancer is the most wicked demon we have. Prayers for you brother-in-law and friend for sure. On a more pleasant subject - I was thrilled to see you getting a very needed tool for the game. I instantly thought of you Ed and smiled broadly. So that makes me happy for sure. Hugs - Reggie.

    Writin_Reg, we have been silently linked by the sims for a long time. I remember you from the Sims 2. I have always admired your tenacity and passion. I send you all my hopes that you can beat this. Even though we have never met I care, and you will be in my thoughts.

      Thank you so much Mendota - believe me good thoughts from so many good simmers make my heart smile - and they tell me at the Cancer Center that good and happy outlooks and positiveness makes a huge difference in the fight. So believe me well wishes is a big Godsend. Yes I too have followed many of your posts over the years and even when we differed in some things I always could see your point and very much appreciated how you saw things too.

      If you can enjoy your game or even fight to get things to make your game even more enjoyable - it is always worth the battle and every body win when we get more varying ways to play added to the game. It's good to have different styles in my view.

      Anyway - just got in from Chemo - 6 hours every day this week so far - trying to catch up on post and messages. It's a blessing and I love seeing posts of well wishes and such to ME. It is so good of all you simmer to think of me - makes my heart swell - when no one has to say anything. I much appreciate it. I am blessed. Thank you Mendota - hugs Reggie.
