Thanks for reporting that Ruth, I like it better this way! I can't believe a nurse used the word "telescope" in describing what the doctor was going to use to look at your bladder!!!!!!! Wow! Vocabulary review time! lol.
Steph, I missed the cats with the hats on until Ruth mentioned it! I went back and looked. How funny! :)
Carl, we didn't get it too bad here weather-wise. Hope you fared -well with your storm Angela!
Have a good evening everyone! It's cooled-off here again. We go from furnace, to windows open, to air-conditioning, and back again.

Mindy, I was speaking with a coworker of mine about 30 mins ago who lives in Rockford. She said no rain there last night but a couple of flights to O'Hare were diverted to the Rockford airport. It was fairly nasty here.
So much to catch up on! I still don't care much for the skinny "Comments" section; did the webmaster decide we all need to go on a diet, or what?
Joan, I wish my Mom hadd had a "team" when she was going through chemo and everything She was at home with my sister and me, still recovering from having a tumor removed from her femur (and 45 radiation treatments, too). Dad was in the hospital having vein grafts in his legs. It was one hell of a summer!
Our pharmacist pitched a fit when he realized that her oncologist had not prescribed an anti-nausea drug to be taken before she took the chemo capsules each morning. (He called the doctor and did some yelling, and Mom got an Rx for Compazine. It helped. Some.)
This was in 1984; I think therapy has improved greatly since then!
The good news was that by the end of that dreadful year, Mother was completely cancer-free, and was able to have a bone graft done to rebuild her leg...because bone is much stronger than the metal rods they use to hold things together. (Her cancer started in her lungs and spread throughout her body, and we didn't know Jack till that leg bone broke.)
The cancer never came back. She lived to be 87; that's long enough IMO, but I still miss her.
