New (personal health) news

If you're wondering why I've been so sketchy for months, I've just been caught up in more of the same on my health.

I went to the doctor yesterday morning, 9 a.m. and learned my results from my latest CT scan--something is growing...again. I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago this month and they removed 26 lbs of tumors and cysts and endometriosis and scar tissue. That surgery was a good thing, right? The doctor back then said he scraped off my ovaries and left those in. I guess those are what things are attached to. So, they did a vaginal ultrasound yesterday (sent straight there.) I'm sure it's another hurry up and wait deal. You know, how big will we let them get, how many can we get in a month or two or three of watching before we bother to go in and get them out.

My question for you is...have you ever had an intravaginal ultrasound? It is completely invasive. So, if you have had one, did you have a male or female technician? I would think men would like to do that sort of job. The girl yesterday held up the instrument and said, "This is made for comfort, don't worry."

It wasn't a tiny tool and I wondered who made the thing and thought, this size tool will be just right.

SAoirry about your problems. Ihad endometrosis when Iwas younger but I lost one of my ovaries because of it. I wish you the best.

Thanks for sharing, Debby. From the responses I've gotten--many in emails--I think that losing ovaries and uteruses is an all too common thing. There should be more support groups, or educational prep groups or something. Almost every woman I've talked to who has gone through something similar said that they were basically told to suffer quietly.

Happy New Year (Sorry I'm late!) Fudge Contest

Heya folks. I've been incommunicado a lot lately because of health and computer issues, both. I'm guessing most of you have forgotten about me completely.

In personal news, I had throat surgery in September. I haven't done much since then except surf netflix and qvc--which is a wicked swamp for women like me. I get mired down and can't seem to click the channel to get away from it. It's not like I'm even buying from it. I just zombie watch.

Am I the only zombie watcher in the world?

I'm supposed to finish some edits but my leg's been killing me and painkillers and muscle relaxers are doing enough, so my computer time is very very short. My laptap crapped out and we can't find the reload disks, so most of my personal email addies were in that. Feel free to email me and see if it comes through!

Now, do me a favor, tell me how things are with you, and what you're hoping to do in this fine new year. I'll tell you now, my plans to start a diet on the 1st was shot in the foot. To console myself, I tried to make some fudge for someone else but it failed and no one else wants anything to do with it. I know... dump it in the trash fast, girl!

But nope, it tastes good, and I'm kicking my holiday depression by feeding it spoon fudge. I need a good fudge recipe. I can do the one with the chocolate chips but I wanna do it the old fashioned way. What IS the trick? I'll give a ten dollar gift certificate to anyone who can give me a fudge recipe without chocolate chips that works for ME. And I will try them all, even if I get a bunch. After all, if I'm not dieting, why let a friend suffer on nothing but salad?
