Just found out my mother-in-law's biopsy shows that she has lung cancer. And she's never smoked. Still waiting to hear results from my daughter's tests.

Thank you very much for your prayers! :hugs: Yes, you're so right about that! I feel the ladies here have become friends!

Went to inlaws house this morning to see if we should stay home but they both said we should go as they're not sure what treatment she'll need yet. MIL has 4 dr appts this week so we're waiting to see what the others say. So we're on our way to Ga to visit with our daughter. We didn't tell her about her grandmother yet. My DH wants us to wait to tell her when we see her. She's expecting us because we have camping reservations in Tenn this month and was hoping to spend two weeks with her beforehand.

Greetings from Ottawa! I'm up here on business.

The weather is unbelievable for Canada this time of year. It was 80 degrees at lunch, we ate outside (salad with chicken :D). But tonight is our fancy dinner out, so who knows what I'll be ordering...I hope there are some good OP choices.

GMom, Jeri: so sorry to hear about all the troubles in your families. Wow, that's a lot to take in. Sending good thoughts your way.

Rose, thanks for getting us going in October!

Hope everyone else is doing well. :cool:

Gmomof7 10-01-2013 01:36 PM

Stress can knock us all for a loop, but trying to not "stress eat"....
Fell off the wagon but the last 2 days stayed on task...planning on another day of good eating.....Do wish I had a personal chef though...:)

Have a happy and healthy day!!!!

Hi all
Today is my last appointment with the eye surgeon (hopefully)!! Things have been going well for me, overall. Some days of irritation and blurry vision, but those are unusual. I have been using the readers for close up work like sewing and reading. At first, I got a tremendous headache from this, but that is easing off. I will be glad to have regular glasses that I wear all the time. (Spending a lot of time trying to track down the readers, remembering where I had them last. Ha Ha) Eating is still not totally on plan. Just have to make up my mind to do it.

My sister, who has been widowed for almost 4 years, has announced her engagement to a very nice man that we all like. She and her husband had been friends with he and his wife for over 30 years. When he lost his wife last year, they gravitated together as friends of long standing. Friendship became something deeper and he has asked her to marry him. We could not be happier.

The wedding will be in 6 months, so I better find my motivation. I need to pick myself up and get busy!!

Had some not so good news today at the Dr. appointment. I have to have more surgery on the left eye. The implant is not placed correctly and the pressure in the eye is not coming down. I will go to the hospital tomorrow and they will either reposition the implant, or they will replace it with another one, depending on how it looks and how much has healed over. I was not a happy camper when I heard this. Oh well, this too shall pass, I suppose. But really?? Another surgery??? This has been a real pain in my ---eye!!! (You thought I was going to say something else, didn't you???) Believe me, I thought about it!!!

Hello, I posted a few days back....well, I fell off plan but jumped back on and am now on day 2. I'm going to have another look through the recipe thread for inspiration.:)

gailbayne 10-04-2013 12:57 PM

Hi everyone
Day after surgery and I can't see much out of the left eye. Dr. said it was mor involved this time, he had to replace with a new kind of implant. Eye very sore with stitches. Lots of swelling and tearing. BUT, it is now done RIGHT!! More later, very hard to see the screen. Going to go lay down. Again... Yawn...
