She collapsed like a marionette with cut strings going to and from the bathroom last night, but two nurses were there to catch her. No similar problems since. Just a headache and pains associated with such surgery.

IF all goes well tonight she may come home tomorrow. Home health care, physical therapy, and occupational therapy have all been laid on already. We have a walker and a shower chair from her head injury 18 months ago and I have them all ready to go.

Good thoughts are greatly appreciated.

She was in surgery about an hour and a half and another couple hours in recovery. The surgeon thinks he got it all -- no spread -- but of course the pathology report is the final word. She'll be in overnight and possibly tomorrow night as well.

When I had been up for 14 hours she told me to leave and not come back until someone called or tomorrow morning, whichever came first.

NB, male and female: If you ever need a series of shots about the nipple have them give you at least local anesthesia. Pat, with her very very high pain threshold, rated it without any as 20 out of 10. The doctors, when they found out, said that new excretory orifices will be torn open without anesthesia. Apparently Pat wasn't the first.

Good news/bad news.

There are two types of ductile carcinoma in situ involved and neither looks invasive (that is, spread to other areas). Surgery, a mastectomy, is suggested and which we thought was best. It should take care of the problem, always the proviso that "you can't really tell until the pathologist reports." In the last case immunotherapy and possibly radiation would also be used.

A two step process: removal and then reconstruction. It's easier that way if there is a spread.

So...the uncertainty of treatment is over. Now comes the long slog.

Every ship can stand a swashbuckling someone either on deck or off the bow. Imperious Rex may need new glasses as well as teeth, but it don't matter. Bridges all over the place - bridge deck, in the mouth, and between threads on Mudcat, eh?

Bridges of care, concern and connection - just gets expressed differently on separate blocks in the same neighborhood. Hope y'all come away tomorrow with some degree of clarity regarding treatment for Pat, Rapparee. Also that your own body gets glued back together in reasonable working order.

I haven't mentioned it before, but I have had dental implants and one of them was to replace my front upper teeth -- knocked out when my brother managed to stop the bike I was riding and I hit the street teeth first.

Anyway, after many years I had implants put in. And they're great! Until we went to the last (and closing this year) sugar plantation in Hawai'i and I gently held a piece of raw sugarcane with my front teeth, gently tasting the juice.

To make it short, that front bridge broke clear through the metal the "teeth" are mounted upon. I go in Monday to have the damage cleared away and a temporary bridge installed. Two weeks later the new one should be in place.

How much is this going to cost, you ask? Well, the exam to discover it was USD 62.00. The new bridge, labor, materials and all, is under warranty and it won't cost my anything. The dentist was surprised, saying that in seventeen years this was only the third time he'd ever seen this happen.

But the replacement price is right. Maybe that's a sign things are looking up a bit.

See pm's Nigel. And I will be there, as I expect will most of the crew.

Thanks, Chantylass. I guess I am well past the days when there were sudden leaps and need to just keep my eye on the prize and notice that there is progress, though sometimes so slow it doesn't seem so. I wish, gnu. I'm too tired and too close to retirement to make waves on a worker comp case. It is complicated. the nature of my work is such that the injury no long impedes my ability to do my job. But doing my job does impede my physical recovery because I have to sit for hours on end during therapy and clinical assessments with no time between clients or getting the clinical notes finished to get up out of the chair and at least walk around the building for 5 minutes. Whine, whine, whine.

Pete, always holding Tommy in my thoughts.

Rap, I echo what Chantylass said. May you both be recovered from jet lag by the time you read this. And you know the crew is sailing along beside both you and Pat.

We swim, we sail, we sink, we rise. We lift each other up. Or toss a life preserver.   Sinks and Rises
