If you are feeling up to it, can we have some updates please...Im worried about you all. I come here looking to see if anyone has updated and nobody for a little while. So I shall start it off and hopefully everyone can follow.
Im doing okayish. Emotionally, Im doing the best that I have done in a long time. I was able to see Frank the other week and for it to not overwhelm me. We are almost divorced, just the techinicalities of getting the decree absolut. The financial aspect of it has not been resolved yet, and thats really taking its toll, as Im really not in a very good position financially, but with the global recession, who is? Not that its any comfort thinking of others struggling.
Im still seeing that guy, but Ive pulled away from him a bit now, so we are not constantly seeing each other. I have to do that, cos his plans to marry someone else in the not too distant future is still proceeding, and I sure as heck do not want to be too upset about it. So I know its coming and Im preparing myself as best I can. Im not sure whats going to happen about that. I cant say what HE is going to do, and whether he will go out there and marry her and then bring her back with him. But I can say what I, will do if that happens. so, Im as okay with this as I can be, given the circumstances.
The other thing is my knee. It is not good. I have to have a total knee replacement and this is being done on the 16th March. Im so not looking forward to this. Im really fed up of ops. But have to do it, if I want to walk and at the moment Im not doing too great in that department. When I went for all the x-rays etc, they found this thing in my thigh, the same leg thats not good, and its situated in my femur just above my knee. I remember seeing it in a previous x-ray years back. its called a bony cyst, and its this thing thats in my bone. Its been there for years, possibly since birth and I was told about it way back, described as a non malignant tumour and it didnt bother me then. And Im hoping its not bothering me now. As I am getting pain in that region, but as its so close to my knee it could just be pain from my knee. I have to have an MRI to see if it has done anything, which Im almost certain it has not changed. But if for some reason it has gotten bigger or something like that, they have to deal with it as it has a hard exterior that could crack my femur. they will drain it and fill it with bone marrow or something like that.
Has anyone ever heard of this bony cyst? I didnt even know it was called that. But I really dont think its going to cause me any problems, cos it better not!
So, I just got to get myself back up walking again. And although Im reluctant to have it done. Im living for the present and not going to worry what the future brings.
Anyway girlies thank you for listing to me. As always I think you are all amazingly wonderful. I so want to hear an update from all of you.
love and hugs to you all from across that nicely warming up sea~~~~~~~~~~~in good ole England

Glad to hear that you're on top of things, emotionally It was a big step not getting overwhelmed when you saw Frank, and as for the guy you've been seeing, you're old enough to think things through and make decisions that are right for you!
It sounds like it could be an osteochondroma (?) in your femur, from what you describe, and it's good that the docs are onto it! I'll be thinking of you when you have your TKR done in a couple of weeks, hun. FIngers crossed for a very speedy recovery for you
Things here are going well. I had another craniotomy on the 18th Feb where they took out another 3.5cm tumour in my temporal lobe that had gone on a growth spurt I was only in hospital for 48 hours though, and have been home pottering around since I'm off the steroids now, have only needed panadol for pain relief since the day after the surgery, and am hoping to look like myself again within the next few weeks. The biggest problem I have found so far is that because they have gone through the spot above the same ear twice, my ear is now almost 1cm lower than the other one, and my sunglasses are lopsided *sigh*
I should put in a complaint, eh?
Now... how is everyone else?

Hi lovely ladies!
Bub, I am keeping good thoughts for your knee. I so hope things improve with that. I think of you every day and wish only good things to come your way.
Nic, you are simply amazing. I am just so humbled and honored that you share your journey with us. You are a true "warrior" and I keep good thoughts for you every day.
You ladies mean so much to me in so many ways. Your gentle spirits keep going forward even in the darkest days and I am truly amazed by your strengths and positive attitudes. I know you have your down times, but honestly you both are just the most amazing human beings and I am so proud of you both.
As for my update, nothing new just trying to keep going through all of lifes ups and downs.
Big hugs to you both!

I am reminded once again that the women of HJ are truly amazing, strong women. It is an honor to know you all.
My life is going on about the same. Hubby is working in PA and coming home twice a month. DS will be home from college May 5 - can you believe he is halfway through?! He will work again during his break in the Dietary Dept. of the rehab facility where I work. I am still in admissions, and working full-time now. We stay very busy, and I am grateful for full-time hours when others are losing jobs.
The critters are fine, and are lots of company to me. Reagan is patiently waiting at my feet for me to take him out to piddle, so I'd better close and get to it.
