Well Red. I have to be honest and tell you that I both hate and love what you're sharing with us.

You know how strong you are, you don't need me to say it, but I will anyway. You are one of the strongest and bravest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet, and I will continue to believe that someday, I will get to meet you in person.(and maybe cast a sideways glance down your blouse!)

So please win the lottery and throw yourself a party!

Ang,

I don't know what to say. Like RACE, I am thankful you are sharing with us, but I hate, hate, HATE what it is you are going through. You ARE a strong and brave person!!! Don't lose hope - you'd be surprised the miracles that can happen! My SIL was diagnosed with very late stage cancer at 31 yo, about 6 months after my nephew was born. They gave her 6 months to live and she lived over 6 years. She was a strong, positive person who focused on the people that she loved and making the most of every day. I think that that, and lots of prayer, really made a difference.

You are just as strong as her and I encourage you to not give up hope. If there's anything any of us can do, don't be shy. I promise to check fb more often, too, so you let me know if I can help in any way! My heart is breaking for you and your family and my thoughts and prayers are with you every day.

Preliminary findings = lung cancer has metastasized to the liver. Nick and I both guess I have six months.

Edog, I still do not like you and I'm sure it is mutual, but I am sorry that I so immaturely said such mean things as wishing death on you.
What was I thinking?

I posted on fb tonight for people to please stop texting me so I can sleep. My phone will beep until I deal with the text, missed call, or voice mail. I can't turn that notification feature off.
So my brother posted on fb repeating what I had posted....an d I thought it was weird he was helping me in that manner.

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. Iím 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'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.
