Hardly what I'd call: "Worth Reading", but it's where I'm at currently...mice & rats have decided that our cosy, 1930s, mid-terrace house is where they'd like to spend the winter. The pest control man has other ideas, but there is a smell that just won't dissipate. Our drains are playing up too...the utility company did their thing yesterday; found nothing & have to return today...still waiting.
       New meds...old meds, different dosages...feeling somewhat 'out of body' as things, hopefully settle. Ann's annual cancer review has been changed to quarterly. Her oncologist was slightly concerned, but very reassuring...neither of us felt in the least reassured!
       I've taken on a little session work with a couple of friends. Nice songs...relaxed atmosphere...good to be playing guitar again (and some mandolin too).
       Will post again when I've removed the peg from off my nose,
       Much Love to You All,
                                        Nigel.

Thanks, Maeve, for identifying me. I guess that, though now out of the Yucatan, I remain a little distracted. And may I correct myself also,gnu, while I am at it. I believe that Groucho and Miles, but not Mark Twain, said it.

If ya touch the chooks, yer gonna get.... ahem! Sorry about that. I was taught that any fox near a farm should be terminated with extreme prejudice. Same fer yer coons n such.

I recently became a member of a Facebook group whose members post pics and videos of wild animals in NB.ca (and from other places, mostly by NBers away from home). I am fascinated by the diversity and size of such in NB even though I have seen same ovr my many years exploring the wilds of NB. We have, although rare, large cougars (Eastern Panthers), fairly large wolves, and such. Of course, commonly seen are very large White Tailed deer, some HUGE moose, and many others but the pics and videos as of today are quite surprising given the habitat destruction by our GREEDY forestry industry.

Oh, yeah... in the spirit of the season... MERRY HO HO!

Taking note belatedly, gnu, of your post of 6 Dec. (In the enchanting Yucatan, and distracted, last few days.) Not in any doubt that Twain, Groucho and Miles all said it - perhaps in that same order.

Happy, ChanteyLass, over your results.

Yes, we'll still be here. Don't rush on our account!

My friend who broke her upper arm in three places saw her orthopedist again yesterday. One of her neighbors drove her which was good because the day and time were bad for me as I complained recently. Her next appointment will be in three weeks at the same time. Oddly enough, that will work for me. It will be New Year's Eve so the Y will close before my favorite yoga class and the library book club which usually meets on the last Wednesday of the month will meet on the 17th, avoiding Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. And I will insist on being with her when she makes the next appointment.

Oh dear, lots of illness and broken bones, sending healing thoughts and love coming your way from a VERY cold East Coast of England, maybe not as cold as some of you in Canada and the US, but our summer carried on into the autumn and this is the first cold weather we have had!

I had an "almost" accident last week, juggling life as usual, making a cake, coping with mum, and trying to get the house ready for Christmas I overbalanced on the stairs and nearly fell backwards, managed to grab hold of the rail but pulled my ham string so I am hobbling about with a stick. Then yesterday took my daughter to see the Consultant ( at last) she has lost two and a half stone since August as the Crohns has really flared up. She has an appointment for a colonoscopy but not until January 2nd!

On an uplifting note my granddaughters Godmother was given the Keys to the city of London last week, a great honour. She can drive sheep over London Bridge!! Just wondering if anyone has actually done just that ? What fun!

Mother is disappearing more into her own world day by day,the strain of looking after her is becoming more stressful but Billy and I have each other and are coping. He is my rock and I am so lucky !

Sailing on

with much love

Begging a little sympathy. Typing one-handed. Severe tendonitis in left shoulder. I'm left-handed and can't raise my arm more than 1/2" from side without severe pain. Shoulder, arm and hand throb constantly. Gonna be in sling for awhile. Daily toradol injection for 5 days - will eat the stomach lining beyond that. A wee bit better today after 3 injections. Got enough relief for a little sleep last night.

I was diagnosed with nodes on my thyroid in 1999 & I see an endocrinologist yearly or in recent years every 2 years as the nodes have not grown. The largest node is 1cm.

gnu - they stick in a needle with some anesthetic (technician says 'this will sting') it does,

After an appropriate amount of time they poke in a biopsy needle into places shown to have nodes in the previous scan - sometimes I feel an ouch, sometimes I feel more then an ouch. But I'm sure there are many worse procedures.

eagerly awaiting your results, ChanteyLass

Sandra, 15 years--wow!

This is just a guess or positive thinking: I don't think anything was found. When I had parathyroid problems and needed surgery a few years ago, the technician spent much more time on one side of my neck than the other, and that turned out to be the side with the problem. This time both sides seemed to get equal attention with no hesitation or backing up. If there is a problem, I'll hear from the endocrinologist in a few days.

thyroid scans are easy - they just squirt thick sticky stuff on your neck & rub/squash it in with a monitor thingy. (insert smiley face) and you can watch the screen - which is a very boring image that tells you nuffin'

It's thyroid biopsies that have an ouch! And I'm due for my next scan & biopsy in March.

I'll do yoga at the Y, change clothes, drive a short distance to the Y, fill out some paperwork, and then I'll be ready! So that is a good thing about this test.

Thanks, Friends. I needed reassurance and a place to whine.

I took my friend shopping today. She bought two huge sweatshirts that she can wear over her arm in the cast. She wanted to go to Walmart, so I took her there although I dislike the way it treats employees. However, I looked for a 7-inch (yes, 7) TV because mine died last night. I wanted to see if they had one although I planned to look elsewhere and buy at Walmart only if no other store had one. Walmart didn't have any and neither did any of the other 11 stores I went to before and after taking her shopping! She loves to shop but was understandably tired because of course she's not sleeping well. I hate to shop, but I was on a mission which failed. I have seen the small TVs online, but I don't shop online. Oh, and I told my friend that I normally shop for food and go to the laundromat on Thursdays and will take her with me then so she can do the same. She bought a few food items at Walmart today to tide her over. At my suggestion she also bought a laundry bag with an over-the-shoulder carrying strap since she won't be able to carry her laundry baskets.

I have a thyroid scan scheduled on Tuesday. My endocrinologist has been nagging me to get one, so this year I finally caved. Wish me luck!

Chanteylass, you aren't being selfish - your friend is thoughtless. There's a difference!

Five years ago I broke my arm while on holiday in Canada and for the rest of our holiday there it was cold enough to need warm clothes, but I managed all right. When we came back to Oz light summer wear was all that was needed......I wore skirts instead of long pants, for ease of dressing.

My friend is doing surprisingly well. On Wednesday the orthopedist replaced the hospital cast with a shorter, lighter one. He wants to see her again in two weeks. She scheduled that next appointment without consulting me even though I was in the waiting room. She knew the first appointment was at an inconvenient time for me, but since I knew someone at the hospital had scheduled it, I cancelled my plans to accommodate her. Unfortunately, she scheduled the next one for the same time and day of the week, interfering with the same two things on my schedule. When she told me, I said, "What? Why didn't you ask if that time was all right with me?" She said, "Maybe my neighbor can drive me." I told her if her neighbor couldn't, I want her to change the appointment to Thursday when I can be free at any time. I talked to her tonight (Friday) and she hasn't talked to the neighbor or changed her appointment (which she couldn't have done on yesterday's Thanksgiving holiday) yet. Of course I will drive her even if I have to cancel my plans again, but I won't be happy! Someone just nominate me for the Selfish Award!

JennieG, I found another shirt for my friend and a sweatshirt with a long top that buttons, and she found that she could get into one heavy winter jacket.

Well, I'm still fine but a friend called me this morning (Tuesday) to tell me she broke her upper arm in 3 places yesterday when a steel door of her bulkhead crashed down on it. She was able to walk to a neighbor's house. The neighbor, a retired nurse, drove her to the emergency room and home after she'd been put in a cast and sling and given meds. Tomorrow I'll drive her to an orthopedist's office. She may need surgery. This friend is ill-prepared to dress for this. She lives alone. She does have some elastic-waist slacks but all her tops are pullovers. She has no shawls or capes, but she did think she could find a throw that might do for a shawl. I'm bringing her 3 flannel shirts.

Sunny and 18C! I have an uneasy feeling about it. 3/4 moon is Saturday. This is the seventh cycle of cold-warm-cold this fall and this is pretty warm. Not that there could be a Buffalo on the way but any amount of snow bothers Mum greatly (yes, I know youse have heard that before) so I do get uneasy feelings these days. The rags are talking about a possible snow on Thursday but the various forecasts are all over the place so I'll have to rely on my 40+ years of experience living here and say... it ain't here yet so we'll see.

Glad to hear your session went well, Nigel.
