My Mom is having another cystoscopy on Monday. She'll have to have them every 3 months for a while, but they are doing this one in the hospital to make sure they got all the cancer last time. So PLEASE would you all send "no cancer" and just general good vibes her way?

Thanks ALL!!!

My thoughts are with you and your Mom Dent.
:crossed: for an "all clear" from now on!


01-29-2003, 01:14 AM
Well, all your good wishes must have helped, because the doctor said everything looked good!! We have to wait for the results of the biopsies still, but so far so good. AND my Mom was back home 2 1/2 hours after the procedure, so recovery time was VERY good.


01-29-2003, 07:48 AM
Oh thats great news Den! Will continue to keep you and your mom in my thougths and prayers.

01-29-2003, 07:57 AM
Den, that's wonderful! Let us know when you hear for certain. Hugs, hon...

01-29-2003, 08:18 AM
Great news, Den. If the doc said everything is OK, it probably is. The followup stuff is usually just to make sure and cover their a**. Hug your Mum - I wish I'd done that more.

01-29-2003, 10:07 AM
Great news, Den! Keeping :crossed: for good biopsy reports.

01-29-2003, 10:40 PM

thank you everyone. I am feeling a little better today but I slept in very late. Actually I probably needed a nice long sleep since my mood seems to be lifted a little. I just stepped on the scale and I am up 1 1/2 pounds since I returned from my trip. :( I haven't been eating all too well this whole time so it isn't much of a surprise. Guess I need to get back on track starting right now!

03-04-2003, 04:40 PM
Prayers and :goodvibes sent out to Den and her mom, Ellis and her mom, and Sojo!

03-04-2003, 04:54 PM
Thank you Flower and Mauvais! :)

03-04-2003, 05:24 PM
how wonderful it is to have a group of caring and supportive women to share this stuff with. Praying for your mom Ellis and for anyone else who needs it!

03-04-2003, 07:15 PM
Thank you, Sojo. :) It IS wonderful.
I DID say in the other thread that you were in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sure you saw that, but in case you thought I'd forgotten you...

03-04-2003, 08:25 PM
Good thoughts for Sojo and for Ellis and Ellis' Mom. What's up with your Mom sweetie? (Unless you don't want to talk about it.)

03-04-2003, 10:11 PM
Can you put in a healing thought or 2 for Griffin. He is sick again. I took him to a clinic cause he had a temp of 103 this afternoon. By the time we were seen, the tylenol brought it down. BUT all was not in vain, his throat is filled with pus. Another bacterial infection!!!!! I will have to remember to up the yogurt for him, he gets yeast infections all over his bottom!!!! I was wondering why he would drink anything all day!!!

03-04-2003, 10:17 PM
Flower, hugs and prayers for little Griffin. Poor darling... what a time he's having. :grouphug:

Thank you, Den! Sojo and I wrote our worries into some other thread... can't remember which one. Nothing MAJOR, but Mom has a really bad cough and is still in Mexico. She's having trouble getting in to see a doctor (long waiting times), and according to my Dad the weather is very hot and makes for difficult breathing. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but she's had a number of bronchial infections over the past ten years, and she's 78 now. I'm worried... :(

03-05-2003, 12:19 PM
Flower-WHAT A DRAG!!!! Good thoughts going out for Griffin as well as Sojo, Ellis and Ellis' Mom.

Ellis-It IS a big deal sweetie. I am sure she will be okay, but just about anything that makes our parents ill is worrying. And as they get older it only increases the worry. Plus which, with your Mom in Mexico you can't check up on her in the same way so that makes it even worse.

03-05-2003, 12:28 PM
Thank you sweet Den. :)

03-05-2003, 07:55 PM
Flower - I hope Griffin gets better soon! (and stays better)

I think this is bigger then the Nurturing the Nuts thread, but I did not want to put this in a thread by itself.

I know we are all in here for weight loss, but I had a very sobering experience today. This afternoon I found out my sister's friend, who we have known for as long as I can remember, died yesterday. My guess would be heart failure, since she was anorexic. She was only 22 years old. Last time I saw her, back in July, she looked awful. You could see her shoulder blades, and she was just stick thin. I wanted to say something to her, but didn't since it was at my sister's baby shower. I didn't want to cause any problems. My sister recently found out that her friend was also making herself sick when she did eat. She wanted to go down and talk to her mom, but her mom wasn't home Saturday. We are going to her mom's tonight, and the wake is Thursday. It all feels so surreal. She was such a sweetheart.

So yeah, we may be trying to lose weight, but just know when to stop.

03-10-2003, 03:49 PM
Squeek-hugs!!!! How sad and so wasteful. Be strong for your friends family. They will need you!!! She must have been so very sad inside to have done that to herself.

I personally find thin gross. I look at the runway models and see the bones in their thighs, I am grossed out. I don't want to see bones, only shapely muscles!!! A little pudge here and there is what makes us girls!!!!

03-10-2003, 04:19 PM
So sorry to hear that, Squeaker. It absolutely breaks my heart to be reminded that we have become such a weight-obsessed society that people are literally dying to be thin. Makes me dislike & distrust the media even more...


03-10-2003, 04:46 PM
I'm so sorry, Squeaker. :grouphug:

03-10-2003, 06:10 PM
Thank you Flower, Lunula, & Raven.

I had intended on coming into this thread later today to ask for warm thoughts for my sister, Heather & her mom for when my sister went to talk to Heather's mom.

03-10-2003, 06:21 PM
Squeak sweetie, I'm so very sorry. That dear girl... I will say prayers for strength and comfort for all of you.
love and hugs...
Ellis :grouphug:

03-10-2003, 07:01 PM
Thank you sweet Ellis. :)

03-10-2003, 07:03 PM
hello squeaker

i'm sorry to hear of the loss of your sister's friend. it is very sad. you, your sister, and her friend's family will be in thoughts and prayers. take good care of yourself.


03-10-2003, 08:29 PM
Sorry to hear about your sister's friend Squeak. Sending prayers for you, your sis and the girl's family. :grouphug:

03-10-2003, 10:02 PM
Thank you wsw & Mauvais. I really appreciate it.

I just spent the last 3 hours at Heather's with my sister and all her friends going through pictures and telling silly stories. She ended at 5'4" and maybe 85 lbs. It's just not right or fair.

03-10-2003, 10:06 PM
Squeak-I am SO sorry sweetie. What a waste. You are absolutely right that we have to know when to stop. This should be about loving ourselves, not about hating ourselves. I'm thinking of all of you........

03-10-2003, 10:25 PM
Thank you Den. :)
