Re: 3 letters repeated

Sheila,

Re: 3 letters repeated

And rag-tag is really only 2 letters repeated. My bad.

Miscounting I forgive.

But condensing helter skelter into a single word....unforgiveable. ;-)

Re: 3 letters repeated

(3) ragtag
(4) willynilly
(5) helterskelter


Except that rag-tag is hyphenated, willy nilly is either 2 words or hyphenated, and helter skelter is 2 words.

Re: Bilateral mastectomy: surgical path report

I'm thrilled with your biopsy report! What an incredibly enormous relief!!!

And so pleased with your surgeon's personal note. That says lovely things about her and her relationships with her patients.

Re: Breast cancer pathology

SO glad to hear from you! So the surgery is now past tense, and it's the wait for the path results, including your sentinel nodes. Hope you sustained the surgery without difficulty. Must feel extremely strange!

Re: 3 letters repeated

Nonsensical has a nice 2-letter repeat: NS. I think it's nice because it's 2 consonants that's not simply a doubled letter.

It's a shame. Yes, the boards overall do not flourish as they once did. But some--such as this one and 2 other health-related boards I've participated in--suffer [more]

Re: 3 letters repeated

How about non-canonical?

Terrific! And it definitely counts, because the hyphen is simply a question of style. When I use the word, I don't hyphenate it.

Re: using the power of atturney

I think you need to consult someone who knows the facts, knows the state laws, and has dealt with this situation already. By that, I mean an eldercare attorney in the state where your mother lives.
