Realization hits home...


Recommended Posts

So, like, I FINALLY noticed today's date and realized what it was that was bugging me about it... One year ago today, I went for my CT-guided fine-needle biopsy and one year ago today I received my diagnosis and thought the world had just about ended...

...and here I am. Guess it really didn't end, just tilted a little... :wink: (Okay, A LOT - it tilted A LOT).

Glad I finally ended up with all you folks, you make the journey seem more like a walk in the park...in the rain...with a faulty umbrella...and leaky boots...and the sniffles with no Kleenex...and no rain coat...but MIGHTY FINE companions!

Love ya all (even the cranky old men)!

dear dear Becky,

Couldn't ask for better travelling companions.

Sounds like it's time for a bubble bath and serenade, followed by:

A steak and lobster dinner

or whatever else lights your fire.

Since my diagnosis I have been on fire for red meat -- can you say steak??

Hats off and a toast to you, dear, "ain't it grand to be alive to witch!!!"

(quote from a friend with lc.)

Love ya,

Thanks, Donna!

Hmmm...isn't enough room in my bathroom for a serenade - one can soak one's feet in the tub whilst sitting on the pot! How's a mariachi band gonna fit?? (PLEEZE, not the hubby with a kazoo again!) LOL

LOVE that quote, MaryAnn...think I just may highjack it for use in a highly inappropriate venue if ever given the chance. Cocktails with the Queen, maybe? :roll:

Oh yeah, red meat....steaks with fried-in-butter fungus..mmmMMMmmm Baked tater with loads of butter and sour cream (oh baby, hear them arteries hardening - carbs and calories, Viagra of the blood system...) and a big ol' hunk of turtle cheesecake OR fudge brownie covered with ice cream and melted fudge for dessert.... Oh man, I'm drooling in my keyboard!

My big (BAD) craving is Double Stuf Oreos and milk...a pound package doesn't last two days at my house (but don't tell Ry, she'll post my weight after the weigh in!).

Hey Becky, one year is darn good. I love steak, but it's got to be medium rare. When I heard that red meat was bad for you I almost cried, but then I said the hell with it. I can't smoke, drink or take drugs; I'll be damned if I'll give up the red meat. I just try not to eat as much of it. I love beef. Celebrate. Enjoy life today. Love Nancy O.

Dear Anniversay Queen,

You are sharing this important date with the Duke's 62nd birthday. Yep, I married a much. much, much older man.

Red meat, that's all the Duke will eat. (Maybe some shrimp cocktail).

He's having steak with sauteed mushrooms and onions for his birthday dinner. Then Ben and Jerry's Pistachio Pistachio ice cream. He is like a pregnant woman with his cravings.

But as long as he is getting mucho calories, I am mucho happy.

Becky, may you celebrate mucho, mucho, mucho, mucho, anniversaries of your dx. We need you here always.

Dear Becky and Becky,

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary - just keep moving forward. I will be four years on February 10th and am expecting my husband to treat me to a steak and lobster dinner, at least. Celebrate, celebrate, celebrate!!!!

Best to both of you,

Happy anniversary Becky,

I remember when you first joined, I remember reading your post over a couple times because I couldnt believe that you had LC, because your post was so upbeat, I hated that you had to be here but very glad I met you!

Happy belated anniversary other Becky..

I have an anniversary tomorrow, not as important as both of yours, It was one year ago I found and joined LCSC...

Dear Becky/Snowflake,

Actually ,I like "Snowflake'" because , (by your posts,) it sounds as if it suits you.

I just wanted to congratulate you on this anniversary and wish you many , many , many ....more. I enjoy your posts so very much. You make me laugh when I am down, steady me when I feel like panicking and inspire me with your courage. I just wish my husband would come to the computer and read your posts but I haven't managed to get him to that point yet.

Lots of love and positive prayers coming the way of you and your family, Paddy
