well the chutney hit the spot ... cooking is my hobby so my poor husband is having weight problems but we're going to sort that by our vacation - I make tomato & garlic spicy chutney - eaten with cheese and cackers for supper /with sausages / in fact any cooked meat - just great !

If you guys have heard of a lady called Dr. Miriam Stoppard - she's written a book called 'Menopause' - my daughter bought it for me as a gift and it's such a 'bible' ! it explains the myths (e.g. - we WONT put on weight yaaay !) and the facts re HRT and the lowdown on all the herbal and natural alternatives. It's published by dk - (dk.com) - WARNING ...if you feel like me don't read the pages with the diagrams about resuming sex ... too scary at the moment ! (that's probably why the old boy is putting on weight !

By the way - the jel my sister uses in France is called Estreva - it's made from plants - mostly cactus - so it's natural and they call it bio identical -a copy of the chemicals. As I feel well on my preparation I'll stick to it as I have to go back to work the first week in May and the last thing I need with all the young popsies and go-getters around me is to be dissovling into sweats or forgetting my name ! in my company apart from the M.D. I'm the oldest there among 200 staff ... I was only 53 on Tuesday ! (ach - who cares - bet they cant make chutney !)

Will be going to out a meeting tonight and will have to sit on a proper chair for a couple of hours - my desk chair here hurts my rear end after 10 minutes - we'll have to see what happens .. anyone loan me a rubber ring ? as I'm at least 5 hours ahead of you guys in the U.S. I'll see you all tomorrow - sleep well ! x

Well its not windy but still cold. I'm trying to decide if I can use that as an excuse to not walk today. I've yet to get out and do so, but really should. I even rounded up the pedometer.

My dog was sick again last night. This is two nights in a row I've cleaned her puke up. I think her stomach is ultra sensitive because of the antibiotics for her infection.

We are taking a trip out of town tomorrow until Monday afternoon. The drive isn't too bad, about four hours, and nothing strenuous while there, just some fun dinners and get-togethers for a friend's celebration. I'll get to see my brother and sister-in-law from Oregon. It's been nearly two years since I've seen my brother and probably five or more since I've seen his wife. We are also going to take our 18 yr old and his girlfriend along. I had enough Marriott points to get the little gal her own room (or duhh, she wouldn't be going ).

Glad to read in the recovery post that many of you are feeling better. Sorry to read about you that are overdoing it, and now I hope you take the advice you've been giving the rest of us sisters and REST!

You guys are a huge blessing to me. Thanks for letting me share so much of your lives as well. I'll let you know how the walk went..

dear rabbit757...thank you for expressing your disappointment on my behalf. i don't understand why the doctors don't automatically realize that we want to know, after being patient for so long, more thorough results of all the tests, biospies, etc. that have been done, not to mention what stage the cancer is in. my husband's partner, whose mother is a nurse and has bowel cancer, predicted that i wouldn't get that info so soon, that it can take up to 8 weeks for results, staging, etc., so i wasn't totally suprised!

at this point, i'm grateful that everything has moved so quickly, considering wait times here in ontario, including my chemo treatments that already have been scheduled. i think there should be an appt. set up where you can just sit and talk about the surgery and what was found. our health care system is definitely overloaded.

on a brighter note, my family dr. (female...yay) has picked up the slack. i have been in to see her at least two times since getting home from the surgery and she has helped me out greatly with some of the medical issues that have come up (i.e. my incision, balancing my pain meds, etc.). she has been really impressed that the hospitals have been sending her copies of everything that has occurred. i would like to recommend to everyone to always have their family dr.'s name, address, telephone # on hand when filling out forms at different hospitals or facilities where you may go for treatment. they quite often ask for this information and if you don't have it on hand, then the information probably won't get to your family dr. we have always made a point of giving out her name and address when filling out forms, so now she can be filled in with all that info and better able to help.

thanks a lot for your concern and i will get "my day in court" so to speak!

Oh ladies I'm so excited I just had to share. After cycling class the instructor (she's the instructor coordinator) pulled me aside and asked me to start teaching!! Just to clarify-I'm a group exercise instructor, personal trainer and a clinical exercise specialist, and I've kept those certifications up but I haven't taught group exercise for 5 years. I got burned out when I was in Ohio so when we moved to Texas I chose not to teach. I'm really excited. There's a evening cycling class that needs an instructor and she wants to start a morning Step class. It really lifted my spirits. She's been encouraging my to apply for some time but today she was really psuhing me. There's a real shortage of good instructors in our area.
Anyways, made it through 35 minutes of class. I could've gone the whole 45 but patience patience. I still can't do long standing climbs but that will come.
You know it's starting to sound like we're feeling pretty good. Seems like that 3 week mark was magic. I woke up Tues. morning and felt like I never had surgery...well except for the sleep thing.
Well have a good afternoon. And take care

Suzie, np on the gloomy - we've all experienced it and it seems we are still in the midst of it depending on the day. Sending you a ! and hoping today is a better, more upbeat day!

Oh well, looks like our attempt (or Becky's) to get this into one thread was a 'no go'. As frustrating as it is, I still understand it since I'd hardly wish to read about the goings on in someone's life and not how their post op recovery is going! I'm sure in a few weeks, we won't be needing that thread since any newbies can get their information from either our prior posts or a new thread of those who just had and are recuperating from surgery.

JPgirl - glad you heard from hubby! When my BF travels, which he does often to the Latin American countries, I get a little buggy when a day goes by and I haven't heard from him. I know sometimes he doesn't get reception, but the 'not knowing' is horrible since you just never know what could happen being in a foreign country.

I LOVE Indian food. My best friend came over from there at age 7. She and I have been BFF since we were 14. I truly corrupted her and while she may look Indian, she's definitely "All American". They're a wonderful people. Very family oriented. I hate when I hear people call them "dot heads" and say that they smell bad. Each time an uncle came over from Indian, he would stay with her parents until he got on his feet - and they had to teach him about deodorant. It's not something they use over there. Some of their foods have a very pungent smell too, which could almost mirror body odor.

Anyway, done with India 101. Just thought I'd add my 2 cents.

Hello Girls! Hope you are all having a sunny blue sky today. We're enjoying very beautiful weather here. I have felt pretty good today. I had to drive in a taxi about 30 minutes from here to an appt and then back again. I don't know if it was because the taxi driver was CRAZY and drove like a madman or if it's just bad roads... or both... or what... but ****ouch!**** it hurt. Other than feeling a little sore from the driving, I'm doing ok. Energy is back up. I walked today and didn't need a nap. Although, in retrospect, I could have used one!

Becky: So sorry about your dog and her condition. I hope she feels better soon and you don't have to clean up after again. yuck! Feel for you.

Jazzy: Just want to give you a sis

JpGurl: Congratulations!!! That's marvelous that you are asked to be the teacher. A million years ago, I was a girls gymnastics instructor and I loved it. I'm so glad you are feeling good but taking it slow and being patient with your body... well done!

Concordia: that's neat about bc pills. I tried them once right after the birth of my first child. I was sooo sick from them immediately. It was like morning sickness all over again. aaack! It's so weird to think that I don't have to worry about birth control ever again! LOL.. wow.. the freedom!

Kim and Rabbit: Hugs to you both... you're doing so well. Good work and take care, ok?

I'm starting to see that my body is actually going to recover from this (I think...knock on wood) and I'm inspired to start planning my summer flowerbeds and getting ready for summer guests. My family is coming to visit me this summer.. I 'm very excited! Lots to do.. lots to do.

Take care, girls!
