Well, this week we go on a road trip - away to Calgary to my consultation with the  appendix cancer specialists at the Tom Baker Centre in Calgary.
Still drives me crazy that with all the cancer research in BC there isn't a place there that can treat this thing, but I'm thankful that Calgary is only the next province over. Hopefully after our consultation on the 24th  I will have more solid ideas on what the battle plan is, and that they confirm I'm a good candidate for the surgery. I'm really hoping they give me a date too, so that we can figure out how to  arrange it all.

With that in mind, Music Suggestions Please?

A couple of my friends  helped me start a Fight the Jelly  song list - positive music to put us all in the right mood. Since this will be a road trip I would really love suggestions on other positive, going-to-kick-your-butt songs! Could use all the positive energy you can send my way.

So far we have:

    I'm still standing- Elton John
    Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
    Gonna Fly now ( Rocky theme) - Bill Conti
    Just Stand up (against cancer)- Rihanna, various
    You haven't seen the last of me - Cher

My blog about my battle with appendix cancer:
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Listening to: Metisse - Boom Boom Ba

Not sure what your musical tastes are but here are a few I blast when I'm down and need a little strength.

I'll Be Okay - McFly
Someday I'll Be Saturday Night, It's My Life and Have a Nice Day - Bon Jovi

PS Stay strong and win this battle! ^_^ :hug:
Bon Jovi! I hadn't thought of him, but his music and voice always put me in a good mood. :) Thank you for the suggestions, and for the kind thoughts! :)

Glad I could make a good suggestion! :) Hope you're doing okay.
Audio Andrenaline - Undefeated
Ah Ha - Take on me (the remix I have is good)
Coldplay - Paradise (It helps me when I'm down)
Gorillaz - Get the cool shoe shine

I hope everything goes well! I'll send you and your family good vibes!
Thank you so much for the good wishes and the song suggestions. <3
( how can anyone be down listening to Gorillaz? :) )
I know! Their music never fails to pump me up. I hope you're doing better and everything's gonna turn out well for you and your family.

Let love be your energy - Robbie Williams
Undertow - Genesis
To win just once - Saw doctors (really obscure but a BLAST. Sing at the top of your lungs when unhappy. An immediate spirit lifter. All three of them really, but especially this.)
:hug: I can see why!:) Its like you can hear the smiles in their voices. <3 <3 <3

Didn't have the Robbie Williams yet either thank you!! :D :D
