I think forced sterilization is generally a bad thing, except in the case of these people.

There is certainly a way to do it in your notification settings, but you should be able to just mute the phone. Ask Nick to look through your settings nad set it so that you get ONE notification and that it repeats "never." Also find how to just mute it. I keep the sound off on mine all the time unless I'm epecting a call that I don't want to miss. Of course that kind of explains why it takes me a while to reply to texts/vm sometimes, but I don't care. Can't stand the notification BS sounds. I have an iPhone, but I have had Droids so I know it can be done.

Glad to hear benign! Similar thing with me in August: had routine chest x-ray (once a year for physical) and it had a spot. I have a permanent granuloma (she said probably from isolating TB---wtf).
Did another just to make sure and it hit the liver with a "suspicious lesion." Ick. Another test showed nothing.....repeating in feb.
What do you wanna do to my crotch with your hand? ha ha

I've had six doctors so far and it is pretty clearance how bad it is.
My poor mom. Nick talked to her yesterday and said she agrees that we have limited time here.
I feel so bad for her.
I still say Mayo. Crap, I'll come to Minnesota and transport you myself.

(sigh)

Last time I will try to direct anything that isn't mine to direct. Not promising, though.

I dunno. I'm thinking doctor 7 and 8 might have a good plan.

Oh no, Angela. I’m so very sorry to hear that.:(

You can't control the cards you are dealt in life, but you can play the hand you are dealt the best you can. So, don't give up hope. You are a fighter.

F*CK!!!!

Ang, you are one of my imaginary friends who has become a friend IRL. This sucks!!!

I think you are a rock star and I know that you will continue to move forward with with the same take no prisoners attitude that you have always shown. We are here, on and off Topix, to support you, distract you, make you laugh and make you sentimental - whichever helps most at that moment.

Is that where you got the sweater/house-on-fire analogy?
I shouldn't do this, but it's been a bad week. You know what I say to anyone using the term "teabagger"? Eff you. Our president is standing there like a petulant 4 year old demanding his candy bar, and the whole thing is crap.

Do any of you realize what is going to happen on the 21st if our illustrious idiots in Congress don't get their act together? Every national laboratory in the country will be shut down, and their employees, direct and contract, furloughed. You figure out how many more people that is sitting home not making money to pay their taxes and bills. Taxes that pay for all the handouts that have helped to drive our debt beyond imaginable, and pushing against ceiling after ceiling, while petulant pissants point and call others teabaggers.

Quit blaming the Republicans. If you truly think the Dems have no fault in this or responsibility you're drunk on the koolaid. Both parties are a shambles and a disgrace and should be ousted.

Sorry. It's been a bad week. This response is probably ill timed, and for that I apologize.

I have about six months left, 12-14 MAYBE if I genetically qualify for a certain pill treatment (not likely).

I'm with you, but... so what?

I work in the private sector and I've seen rolling layoffs, lack of work, lack of income. Sorry, but I don't feel too bad for "guvment employees," contract or otherwise, who are out of work. They're gonna get retroactive pay anyway. They should have to collect unemployment like the rest of us stiffs.

Do you even care about starving children? Let's just keep raising the debt ceiling. And keep raising the debt ceiling. And keep raising the debt ceiling. That should solve everything.

They can't. Republicans are the only ones stopping them from getting their way. Damn democracy and the system of checks and balances!!!

Hey, you could go in a car wreck tomorrow. Fact is, none of us know how much time we have left. Wasn't it Kadafi that was given like six months to live and was let out of prison because of it? Two years later he's still going strong. Dr's give people time tables all the time and they're usually wrong.

Seven months from now you'll be admitting I was right. Again.
