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.
Maple, I love how you talk! Sod him...lmao yes!
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!
