Ill- I am glad you are feeling well and glad your husband is home to be with you at the doctors. I hope the apt goes well to prepare you for the surgery. Dang sister, I am just so sorry about this.

Mema- thank you for sharing the video with us. I am glad Dr. Phil went to visit your neice and the other young woman. She is so beautiful and looks healthy, despite all she has been through. I am glad he also mentioned the possibility of PTSD too.

How is she doing? Is she home from the hospital?

Illimae - I am praying for you. There were too many lesions in my brain so no biopsy was performed, I just went for the radiation. God bless you and I am hoping for good results which ever way you go. Like I said in a prev post, no heavy side-effects with brain rads. Other than losing your hair again. Hang in there sister...u can do this.

Good morning, Loungettes!Happy Monday!It's Columbus/Indigenous Peoples Day here in Maine, what I call one of the half-a$ed holidays. Half the world is closed, half is open. Half the doc's offices will be closed, not sure about banks, lots of businesses but not all will be closed, just nuts. Getting the last remnant of Nate coming through, it poured rain a couple times yesterday, very warm and foggy this ayem.

Goldie--so glad the camping trip was so good for you! What a great surprise you got!Hooray for you and your family!

Teka--I hate it when soft apples get mixed in with the harder ones.

Jazzy--amazing pics of the balloons and the fog on the river!

Chevy--Snow? Well, it is coming! How far up in altitude are you? Wow, what camping experiences you have had!

Jazzy--Sadie and I had some wonderful snuggles until the weather warmed up again, now we're back to bedtime snuggles ciz I sleep with the ceiling fan on!

Goldie-can't wait to see the video!

Mema--great interview! Very scary situation.

Illi--confusing is right.Glad you are feeling well, that is a good step in the right direction. You must feel better that there is a plan in place.

Dara--the Zappos guy is pretty amazing. And his approach proves that taking care of employees and the community doesn't get in the way of making money.

NM, you can see the video on FB.

Cami, I'm so sorry for things going on in your home and praying for all of you.

lol Lori on Lucy and Viv. Love that. My stomach .... ugh, hate even going there. It looks like I will need another surgery albeit a minor surgery. Still, don't want a plastic surgeon near me with a knife! A debridement is one thing. The PS thought it was a knot and tried to pull it out but to no avail. It is oozing more now, PS said if it became exposed again, I could try a general surgeon to dig out the threads. I just wanna kill Dr. pRick, the PS at Univ of Penn Hospital that jacked up my body so horribly.

Yes.... I'm Elizabeth Dahling...  Hah!  Or Ed... or whatever I changed my name to at the time... Goldie, we used to have so much fun teasing each other....  she will be back... I just know it....

So beets??   Can you get a hold of a BIG pot?  Like the one grow-houses use to grow pot?  Then you can plant stuff, and put netting all over everything, and maybe the little B-tards won't get your veggies first?  I had to get some "deer netting" and drape it all over my tomato plants, and anchor it down at the bottom of the pots, and it kept the squirrels out of them...  they only liked the Heirloom, or large tomatoes... not the cherry tomatoes.   I don't know if that would work with "in the ground plants"....   SOMEone set 8 of those huge grow-pots out in the alley 2 years ago.... So of course I go rescue them....  I saw "White Rhino" written on tape on one of the pots.... I go google that name, wondering what kind of plant that is, that I could grow....  HAH!  It is some fancy strain of marijuana...  I found out...  So I'm just sticking to Tomatoes, herbs, etc....  

But one of my friends has 4 pots of MJ growing on their deck!!!  It has buds on it...  But she says it is a job, to dry and whatever ...to get those buds into something you can smoke....  I was, and still am too afraid to try it....  

Miss Dara...  What happened to you?   And I don't even know what a deprivement is....  nor do I want one....  I have enough trouble with all my rashes, and whatever.... and trying to figure out what I'm doing....  to get rid of them....

Our power came back on... I think our little morning snow-storm broke branches off the trees, and onto the power lines!    I can't imagine what the folks in Texas, Florida, and then Puerto Rico did without their power, and all their other problems... so I'm not complaining....It's only 33 degrees out...  but oh well...

On hiatus from workout--trainer (who is observant) took time off for Yom Kippur & Sukkot, so I did what I could at home (the stretches, modified pushups, squats) and used the treadmill at the gym. But now I'm having weird jaw/ear/neck pain on L side, affected by movement, so I'm taking it easy. It came on suddenly last night in the Uber en route to the Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul concert (fantastic show), abated during dinner & the concert, but recurred in another Uber en route home (sat in same location, with shoulder belt across my neck). Got worse overnight and still worse now. Frustratingly, I can't reliably reproduce it and I can't tell what will set it off--though head movement and swallowing (my own saliva but not beverages) often bring it on. PCP's PA says it's not ONJ or an ear infection; not a tooth abscess because I have no fever or weird taste in my mouth and my gum doesn't hurt when I press on it. She has it narrowed down to sinus inflammation (mold count over 53K today), salivary gland or adjacent lymph node problem or perhaps TMJ. I have an upcoming dental appt so will ask for another X-ray or ENT referral if it persists. Meanwhile, I've been advised to use heat, Aleve, decongestant and keep encouraging saliva flow in case it's partial blockage caused by parotid "gravel."

Yesterday, with dinner (shrimp & grits at House of Blues) I had a dry "Sofie" rosé by Niebaum-Coppola.

Good Morning, Loungettes!Happy Twofer Tuesday! Still tropical and rainy here, no more talk aboutdroughts for a while. Got through the Columbus/Indigenous Peoples day half-a$ed holiday with a minimum of annoyance. Visited with my Mom for a bit at her place, she's cleaning out the trailer, one of my cousins is going to move it to her land and fix it up (it doesn't need much fixing, but a bit) so Mom is sorting and boxing and moving stuff to the storage shed or the dump, as appropriate. Kind of sad to see the place being stripped down like that, but she hasn't lived there for years, and without attention it's just going to deteriorate. She's also trying to sell the land, wish I could afford to buy it, but that's not in the budget without my going back to work full time and I don't want it badly enough to do that. Mostly I just don't want her to sell it, forno good reason other than I'd like it to stay in the family. I guess I still think of it as home, in a way. Time to grow up, I guess!

Chevy--The Caramel Mimosas look absolutely yummy! I may have to go out and get some caramel vodka, and it's coming into cider season, so time to mix up some. It's crazy you got snow, but I can remember Trick or Treating in the snow, with costumes over snowsuits when I was young, so not so surprising, really.

Goldie-- I did see the video on Fb, what a nice surprise on a rainy day! How nice of you to plant some beets for the critters to eat while you were gone!You are so thoughtful of the critters.

Dara--those fires are frightening. Glad your friend is out and safe. I can imagine how you feel about more surgery, and to be having issues at this late a date, that was so botched up. I hope you can find someone who will finally fix the issue once and for all.

Chevy--I can't believe your friend is growing pot on the deck! Glad you got power back, and it is humbling to realize that so many people are still without power due to the hurricanes.

Chi--having unexplained pain is scary and not fun. I hope you find a cause ASAP and that it can be treated.

Wacko, I can't believe you are having more problems with that tummy. How does that happen after such a long period of time? So, what are you getting with your MMJ card?

Chevy, you are so funny as well. You and your neighbor with the MMJ, too funny. To just smoke the stuff, I think you just let it dry. I don't smoke any, I use the RSO and just at night before I go to bed. I will plant some more beets and I put gallon milk jugs over them. They just need to get going. Once they get big enough, the critters leave them alone.

Gee Sandy, one thing after another for you.

NM, is the land ofyour moms where you grew up? I know I hated to see my mom sell our place up north. 10 acres and a trailer. We didn't grow up there, but was up there just about every weekend growing up.

Going for labs today, should have results tomorrow and see my onc on Thursday. Then attending a MMJ conference in Phoenix. Looking at trying to get in with this growing industry some how.

Good morning friends- getting caught up here on this crisp fall morning. Another nice moring for the morning mass ascension and saw about 10 floating down the valley, but in a distance. Here is another great video I saw on FB this morning from GMA.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/video/hot-air-balloons-fl...

Had the cleaning company here early yesterday, working on the contract with the new teaming company (finishing that today) and also got my car in for the two new rear tires. Hope to have her back by end of the week. They always seem super busy and it takes awhile to get repairs done. Thankfully not my primary vehicle but one that is lovely to drive this time of the year as a convertible.

Dara- there was another sister here on a thread who went through so much of the same thing you have been dealing with from your recon. She had many debridements/follow up surgeries from her recon process and shared so much of the same stories you are here. She dropped off BCO awhile back. I wish you resolution with this so you can continue to focus on your new work.

Sorry to hear about your friend being impacted by the fires. I know people in both areas where the fires are (northern and southern) and have not heard from my sister yet this week and she works not far from the Anahiem fires.

NM- I so understand your desire to buy the childhood property to keep it in the family. It sounds like it would put you back in a place you don't want to be (FT) and after you just paid off your own home this year. But that being said, the emotions of a place where we grew up loom large. We had to sell our childhood home in 2005 and my sister and I both talked about whether we could find a way to keep it. I had JUST built and moved in to my own new home at that time, so there is no way. I remember walking around the house at the end to say goodbye with tears in my eyes. But a nice man bought the house, has fixed up the property in a lovely way and have seen it several times during my returns back east. Makes me feel good that someone who valued that space bought it and made it even nicer. I hope the same for you, it can make you feel a bit better about the whole thing. Hugs sister!

Chi- I had a really bad pain in my ear/jaw back in early Sept I was sure was a sign of swimmers ear (given my weekly swimming activities). But I also suspected it could have been a blocked eustacean tube and in fact, with some decongestants, it got better quickly. So your thought about the mold could be right on. I hope you feel better soon.

Chevy- how is your weather? We are getting COLD down here and some snow up in the northern parts of the state yesterday, and freeze warners everywhere. Hope you are staying warm!

Goldie- good luck with the labs and hope you get good results! Is it getter cooler too where you live?

I have heard a lot of people are getting involved with the MMJ industry. I had an opportunity a couple years back, but not a good fit for me and required special (and expensive) insurance for my biz so I opted out. Just be aware of that if you start a new business around the industry, you may need special insurance coverage.

Ill- thinking of you and hope your apt went well yesterday and that the doctor is putting together a new plan to help you.

Genny- how are you doing sister, any news on your tests and also your neice's recovery?

Hello to all others and wishing everyone a terrific Tuesday!

BOMB, BOMB, BOMB yesterday. I cried n cried, am thankful hubs was here. He jes held me. Got 'the call' regarding the biopsy. I am scheduled for 2 weeks from today (24th).

One of you, Jazz or Sandy mentioned a similar incident with melanoma. I was too relaxed and not worried and then bam. Trying hard not to crawl into da wabbit hole. But even if I do for awhile, I still think I can overcome/deal with the results.

Mema, sorry to hear about the melanoma, but hopefully they've caught it early and the surgery won't have to be too extensive. (My best buddy from law school has had two of 'em in the past 15 years--whenever we go to the L.A. area to see him, the first thing he says after we greet each other is "Where's your hat?" The second thing? "Have some sunscreen").

The molds here have been horrendous--yesterday was over 58,000. I'm finding it tougher to fully snort my Nasacort, and I'm getting headachy. And Gordy has cold symptoms but also no fever or body aches--and today in the shower had vertigo. (Thank heavens for grab bars). After. my mani tomorrow I will go to my PCP and see what he says about imaging my left salivary glands. Was able to sing at rehearsal tonight but blew off the open mic--I was starving and it was storming outside (my umbrella kept turning inside out as I walked back to the CTA Red Line and then again as I walked home); the tavern where it was held was all the way out on the NW Side (a half-mile walk from the Blue Line and then probably an Uber home). And who knows when I'd have been on.

Will pick up some Sudafed--been afraid to take it ever since being dx'ed with hypertension, but my PCP says the BP med I'm on will keep me safe. I have some phenylephrine-containing cold medicine (generic DayQuil), but I don't really want the other stuff that's in there (Tylenol, cough suppressant). I hear phenylephrine isn't very effective anyway.

Diagnosed at 64 on routine annual mammo, no lump. OncotypeDX 16. I cried because I had no shoes...but then again, I won’t get blisters....

Mema- BTW, I did not have melanoma but had a basal cell on my scalp. I am praying they caught this early and you will have good outcomes. You've got this sister.

Good Morning, Loungettes! Happy Hump Day! Got a morning at the Immunization clinic planned, a phone call with Kaplan to get the orientation process started this afternoon. Looks like my first class will be in January. Looks like it's going to be a sunny day today. Been dreary and rainy the last couple of days so it's good to see the sun. Plus, the rain has brought out a lot of color in the leaves, there are some really vibrant reds showing up now. Just beautiful.

Goldie--the land is not where I grew up, that house/land was sold years ago when Mom and Dad moved to this spot. It was part of a much larger plot of land that was in my Dad's family, and has been sold off parcel by parcel over the years, although much of it has gone to my cousins, so it's still in the family. I think I don't want to see Mom sell it mostly because it's where I remember my Dad being in the last years of his life. He built cabinets into one of the bedrooms to make it a craft/sewing room for mom, added on the decks, built on an addition and built cabinets in the addition to make an entry way/pantry. He did beautiful wood work. I wish there was a way to move some of it into my house, but one of my cousins is taking the trailer, moving it and fixing it up to live in on their own property. I guess I see the land and trailer as a connection to Dad. There really isn't anything I can do with the property, and Mom is convinced she is going to need the money to live on someday. I guess it's just a change I don't want to see happen.

Jazzy--great video! Thanks for the hugs, I'm working on letting go of the idea of owning family land, and reminding myself that I have wonderful land and home of my own that I do own outright now. Some change is just more emotional than others, I guess.

Mema--oh, dear, so not fair to get bombed on like this.

Chi--The sudafed will be safe enough if you don't take it for weeks at a time.

Jazzy, we have had a few nights where it got to freezing. Daytime temps have been in the 70's and somewhat breezy too.

LDB, what biopsy? Did I miss something? Ok, I see it was melanoma. What will they do for it? As for my surprise, I posted it previously. I will go find it and email it to you. If you go down dat wabbit hole, I will come and keep you company. And I am not growing anything. Legally I can't, because I'm within 3 miles (as the crow flies) to an elementary school.

Ilona, I say "take yourself to the beach with that margarita!"

Sandy, that walk sounded brutal, with the wind and rain….brrrrr!

NM, one thing about AZ, we don't have many trees that change color. Main color around here is just yellow. Well, sorry again about the land and trailer. But you will always have the memory.

Cami, how is Les doing?

Note to self: I don't have to take this day all at once, but rather, one step, one breath, one moment at a time. I am only one person. Things will get done when they get done.
