    May it be so, Ross.
  • Either way, maybe we could share a chariot? To celebrate or commiserate.
  • DooneDoone Shipmate
    Prayers for you both 🕯🕯

    I'd definitely add my vote if I were eligible.

    Huia and Sarasa, if we vote the bastard out, I will definitely do a few steps for each of you in my wheelchair happy (quasi-)dance.

    Just back from my oncologist - have to start applying to get my drug prescription renewed as some of the doctors involved are going on holiday. (The meanies in The Health System only gave me an extension of 2 1/2 months in June!!).
    I could tell from what he said but more importantly from his body language and tone of voice that my doctor has no worries at all about my situation. He wrote a Very Explicit Covering Letter for my application: asking for 6 months extension of treatment, how there was no need for more sophisticated testing so soon etc, etc.
    I am ok for the next 6 weeks and then I have another 2 weeks grace before things start to get serious. (Or lack of things, more like)
    So I hope it all goes through the system better this time than last time which was a panic.

    Of course, it is highly inconsiderate of me not to die within the clearly defined time~frame

    All power to the Highly Inconsiderate!
  • Yes - and be damned to 'clearly defined time-frame'...

    It must be something to do with the pure Sea Air breathed by those aboard this good Ship.

    Brava, @Galilit the Inconsiderate! Keep it up!
  • OhherOhher Shipmate
    May all Shipmates everywhere sign on to the Cult of Highly Inconsiderate Persistent Survivor-ship (CHIPS).

    I think that many church flower arrangers would be envious of their apparent budget.
  • Here's to breaking expectations @Galilit!

    Catching up on the thread andthinkin of you all. An old and dear friend of mine is one who would also like to see the end of Trump's career! One of the things that has puzzled her is that she is not in constant pain even though she definitely has terminal cancer all over the place. She questioned the oncologist who said that this sometimes happens. She takes a selection of pills of course, but in any case is a very positive person who, like those here, likes to know exacty what's what.
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host
    Bless your friend, @SusanDoris, and may she remain pain-free.
  • Praying
  • Beloved almost 92 year old mother-in-law went to Emergency yesterday with gastric pain, and we were haunted by the colon cancer she had two years ago. But as she reported, "We thought it might be the cancer back, but they did a scan and told me I was full of shit!" Suitable medication prescribed and relief all round.

    I'm missing posts from @Rossweisse. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about her and praying for her. Very much hoping her oncologist has found some way to by-pass the nurses to allow her to continue her necessary infusions.

    My vivid imagination pictures the nature of that relief... :flushed:
    M-in-L sounds like one Feisty Lady!

    And continuing <votives> for @Rossweisse, and all with Fell Diseases, who may well be sensibly Taking It Very Easy in hot weather...

    Me too. She is much in my thoughts.
  • jedijudyjedijudy Heaven Host, 8th Day Host
    Rossweisse stays in my thoughts and my prayers, also.
    She is a special and feisty lady!
  • Rossweisse, and others who post here stay on my daily prayer list. Peace and comfort to them all.
  • DooneDoone Shipmate
    Amen and amen 🕯!
  • If ever these feisty ladies get organised and take over, the rest of us had better look out. But until then, the wordless prayers for them radiate from here and many other places.
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host
    Thank you!

    Yes, my oncologist carried the day on the infusion front. I will have one on Monday afternoon.

    He was able to carry the day because I had another Covid test, and it, too, was negative. I had to have another Covid test because I am having the scary (actually: terrifying) spinal cord surgery on Tuesday. Prayers would be much appreciated.
