OMG! I cut myself yesterday too. Though mine is slightly more ridiculous (and I have to admit my reverting to bad habits to share the story). With all of the stress, I am smoking again. The only lighter in my house was toast so I asked Dan to pick up a new one for me. He gets a package of them. They must be a hot to steal thing because I couldn't get that sucker open. Grabbed a butter knife, had to push HARD to get it through the packaging and bam, goes through and cut my pinkie finger that was at the back of it. Seriously. I bled buckets from a flipping butter knife.

Sorry about the BIL. That's a bummer. Hopefully it's a short stay!

How does your grandmother feel in light of the health issues she is having, emotionally/mentally? I say this because my grandmother, who was very likely not in near the good "overall" health of your grandmother, survived her FIFTH SERIOUS CANCER at age 85, & went on to live until 91 with NO notable decline (still got up and out every day, played bridge/golf/shopped & lived alone!) Until 90 1/2!! This was due to HER CHOICE not to be "old", or pass away from ANYTHING until SHE WAS ready!

Thus, I'm thinking, even IF THIS ILLNESS SHE HAS is something pretty scary, even at eighty, she's got plenty of fighting time left...just something I wanted to leave you with...and a big hug, for my sense of pride (& envy) of your overall strength...you go, girl.

Hugs and prayers to all...B2H
Thank you. I wish my grandma was a fighter like yours but she isn't that way. She's a pessimist and frets over even the tiniest of things. I'm trying to be strong but it's **** hard. Oncologist wanted an MRI but she has a pacemaker so can't have one. They are sending her to a liver specialist to do some testing that the oncologist can't do, what that is, we aren't sure yet. Waiting to hear from them to get her appt set up.

It's so nice to come on here and see how "human" everyone is. There's so much fluff and bs on this forum it's ridiculous. I have this and another thread where I can say what I want and not have to worry!
Agree and agree! I'm totally going to adopt sod into my vocab. Sounds much more polite than eff off

I agree on the human part too. I try to censor myself here and hope I do an okay job of it. You all would likely be shocked if we were to hang out in real life. Pretty sure I'd make most sailors look quite proper!

OH and dinner at my house tonight...Fresh morels that we found today, roasted asparagus that I picked this evening and chicken breasts on the grill. YUM!

LOL good to know I'm not the only potty mouth! Haha

If it doesn't stop with the rain we are seriously going to just float away. It has rained every day for the past week and is supposed to rain through the weekend too. The pastures are pure muck! Plus we need dry weather to get the brunt of the trailer work done

Mandy...my GM was THE BIGGEST pessimist/worry wart! Fretted over EVERYTHING (probably the reason she GOT five bad cancers in her life...,) She had a breast CA at 50, with a single mastectomy (total), a second breast CA at 75 & second total mastectomy including all the lymph nodes. At 80 & 85 two colon cancers with much of her colon removed, then finally survived a last bladder CA, only to have Mets from that which were missed do her in at 91. My mom and I said she refused to die as was not going to let the "doctors win"! :0)

I think that hard, pessimistic attitude makes 'Em better FIGHTERS! Hope that gives you a hopeful thought to reflect on!!

No more cuts, ladies!! Oh, btw, I bet my potty mouth could outshine yall!! Goodnight folks! :0)

Had a great day with the horses, gave the girls and good brushing and took a few pics. I'm off to the dentist tomorrow (thrilling right? Lol ) I have two bad teeth that need to be pulled.

So I had my follow-up doctor's appointment today. First off, they apparently forgot about me, because I sat in the waiting room for 45 minutes before a nurse bothered to ask who I was. So, since I was on my lunch break from work (supposed to be an hour), I was 45 minutes late coming back to work.

Anyway, on a bright note, I've lost a pound. Woo.

On a not-so-bright note, a couple of my liver enzymes are elevated, so Edie wants to have an abdominal ultrasound done and redo my bloodwork to make sure it wasn't a fluke (although because I don't smoke, don't drink, and I'm very active, the likelihood of it being a fluke is slim to none). So, I go back in on the 21st for that. I also have a "chocolate cyst" on my left ovary (she told me the real name of it, but I can't remember it). She's going to recheck that in a couple of months to make sure it's going/gone away on its own (apparently it occurs when you bleed back into the ovary you last ovulated from...or something like that).

I'm not a worrier and I'm about as far from a hypochondriac as you can get (it takes A LOT for me to finally break down and see a doctor...heck, when I broke my left ring finger, I didn't see a doctor until it was almost healed and only then because my band director called my parents and told them to take me). But something about Edie's demeanor today threw me off. I almost got this vibe that she either wasn't telling me everything or...I don't know...she almost seemed...perplexed? The big thing at my first visit was the probability of a hormone imbalance or thyroid problem, but neither of those things were even remotely mentioned today. I just don't know.

On a completely unrelated note, I bought Aires a new fly mask yesterday. It's a warmblood-size Kensington mask in the red plaid with black fleece trim. He's going to look so handsome in it!

I would tell you not to worry, but that just seems so stupid. But I will say, don't borrow trouble. Try to keep your mind off it until the test results come back. Doctors are people too, and sometimes they can be preoccupied or perplexed about something that has nothing to do with you. I'll be thinking about you.

I hope you get some answers soon. Just try not to fret over it too much. Dh always has elevated liver enzymes in his blood work and after extensive testing they never really had a reason other than that sometimes the body reacts to fatty foods, and it may be that he had a bit before the tests were done.

I know it's frustrating to have your body be out of whack and not know why or how to fix it. I'll keep you in my thoughts -hugs-

Livers are WEIRD THINGS! I was told I literally had a 90% likelihood of metastatic cancer growing in one singular tumor on my liver, my enzymes were through the roof and I was going to have to have a BONE SCAN to look for the originating site due to a wonky CT scan and weird labs about eight years ago (RIGHT AFTER I HAD RECOVERED from what actually had been a deadly disease!) Only to learn at the next appt three days later that I just had a fatty liver tumor (= no biggie)! I was overweight at the time by a lot due to my meds from the other illness and that should've been her first clue!

That NP was lucky to leave the office with HER body intact (j/k!) As DH WAS PISSED BEYOND WORDS she'd put us through all that stress over nothing without definative results.

I will def pray for your health, but, minimal worry needed. Some NP's like to be a bit...dramatic??

Hope y'all have a GREAT FRIDAY!! Pray for my workday please, that I continue to get out this week in a timely fashion! I'm doing better. Wanna keep it up after first two weeks doing basically back to back 16 hour shifts while learning!!

You guys rock...so love having this thread to come to, FYI. Hugs all around.

I speak far too much like an Irish person now *sigh*... since you guys enjoy it I will attempt to throw in as much Irish slang as possible wherever suitable

I'd kill for anything Canadian at the moment, 3 years this year since I've been home I'm going to have to break down and order myself some good ol Canadian/America food online to keep me ticking over... I haven't ordered in over a year and I figure this new job means i'm entitled to treat myself. I just wish they could send me pizza pops and All dressed ruffles chips - Ireland has an issue with "crisps" that are not salt and vinegar or cheese and onion...

Maple, I too, LOVE the "Irish-speak"! In fact, DH is Scott/Irish 50/50...I keep dropping hints that I'd love to live in Ireland...he says that while it is incredibly beautiful and is nice in many ways that we don't get to see here in the U.S. Anymore (people there, he says, are slightly less "nasty"<- not like rude, but like...sexually overt, etc...? & have better priorities than many Americans these days...not so $$$$ grubbing, etc, and more "down-home-ish"), but, he says that as an RN I wouldn't have the same sort of job, apparently.

He says it's just as medically advanced there apparently but nurses are much more reliant on MDs to do things and it is much less autonomous. To me that sounds like a GOOD THING! At this point in my career, a little more, "Yes doctor, I'll get right on that!" & a little less, "Nurse, tell me what we need to order for Mr Jones because I'm too busy to actually SEE ANY PATIENTS ON MY OWN, so you can do all of my work for me!" Would seem mighty fine! ;0)

Anyway I don't think a move to Ireland is coming at any time in our future sadly... :0( Don't get me wrong. I love being an American and am very prideful of my heritage...I just am so unhappy with the current state of politics and media and life here in the U.S.of late.

On a today different note: YEAY Drafty for yer new fly mask!! Aires will love it and look lovely in it no doubt...pics please!!

I want to ride this week and plan to try very hard to get to the barn at least just to do some grooming for Holly's horses and mucking and breathing in some horse poop filled air!!! I'm missing it so much it hurts (haven't ridden in over a MONTH!!!) So maybe Tuesday. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Okay, prattled on enough! Heading INTO THE HOSPITAL NOW...done hiding out front smoking...my shift doesn't begin till 7, but with the motorcycle still being repaired, DH drops me off early to get to his business on time....(deep breaths/positive thoughts).

Great day guys!! <3
