You are right, I just added this cycle to my last one putting the O date at CD 27 and it gave me some crosshairs. I think it's more accurate this way then going with the D&C date after looking at it, especially since it wasn't "normal" circumstances. I'm hoping this means that I should be expecting my period next week as opposed to the 17th!

so I just started temping again yesterday and got back on FF. but when I enter my temps and HSO info etc, I can't see a chart anywhere. Can someone help me? I click where it says "my chart" but it just shows me my old charts. my last one was Aug 2011 when I got pg with my 13m old, so it's been awhile, but I used to always be able to see my chart at least. :(

Does your new chart have a cycle start date?

I don't think so, but I've never had to enter that before and don't see where to enter it. :P

I haven't said anything, but my stepdad was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer and they figure maybe 6-12 months to live (he's gone downhill fast). I'm worried about my mom. His doctors told her she has to get rid of her bunny, not watch the kids anymore, sell off her possessions to pay for his care, not have any company over due to germs, and spend all her time caring for him to make him "as comfortable as possible." Not to seem totally heartless or anything, but does that seem a little out of line for them to tell her to get rid of all the things that bring her joy in life? Especially considering he's not expected around much longer and she'd have nothing? That and she's physically unable to be a full-time caregiver to an obese adult. I'm just not seeing how they can expect her to give up all quality of her own life with nothing to recharge her own batteries with. I don't know if I'm looking at things selfishly or not.

Definitely crazy. If i was dying, I wouldn't want to sit in isolation. I would want everyone and anyone to come visit and be surrounded by everything i loved.

Robbie and I talked about this last night and I said I'd forgo treatments if I were in the same position. What they are doing to prolong his life is making him extremely sick and causing him to be too fragile to really be around people because he has no immune system. Plus he's all loopy from the pain meds. Everyone wants to live a long life, but I feel that personally that isn't living were I to be that sick. They've already said he's terminal, absolutely no hope for improvement or cure. And she's already so drained physically and emotionally trying to take care of him at this point (she health issues that make it so she's incapable of most help besides bringing food if he'll even want to eat it and he doesn't, has lost 45 pounds in 3 weeks). He needs to be in a SNF for better care than she can give him now (and it's going to get worse) but he's not up for it and she's afraid of what people would think if she did that. I'm completely at a loss on what to do here to help her.

My great grandmother's friend only lasted two months once they said he was terminal. He didn't get treatment at all, and it was still miserable. :( I think most patients who decide to get treatment even after the docs tell them it's useless do it for their families...
When my great grandmother was dying, it drug out for two months after she was placed in a nursing home. She was completely unable to do anything for herself, not even eating. The only one who lived close to her is my grandmother, and she's disabled...there's no way she could have cared for her.



She was only lucid for about a week there, the rest of the time she was hallucinating and then towards the end, just sleeping all the time. Having the nurses there helped my grandmother cope with it all...she sat there every day, and the nurses were able to tell her what was happening and what would likely happen next. The nursing home was expensive and I know Granny felt so guilty that she couldn't keep her home, but it was absolutely necessary.

I'm pretty sure that's what we are going to have to do soon too. It would be far better for everyone that way. So far he says no and because he's still able to pass the competency questions (name, month, current president, etc.) we can't force him.
