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!

I think it is called a "life estate deed"

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.

Re: Where have all the posters gone...

I want to add to my comment that it was said with sadness, not animosity.

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.

Are you in science?

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.

Re: New Issues/Old Problem

She is, but not in the way you might think

Gotcha. So....is there any chance that aunt could come to visit difficult-unpleasant-burden aunt for a few days? Then she'd have the evidence in front of her, and she'd be able to work with [more]

Re: New Issues/Old Problem

so she can see that these issues are being brought about by my aunt and not every other person in the world.

If she doesn't already know, then it sounds as if she's part of the problem.

GOOD LUCK VIBES!!!

Wendy -- the date had seemed so far away, and now it's around the corner! You have so many people who care about you and have you lovingly in their thoughts.

I'm hoping the news will be of an uneventful procedure and clean nodes all around. [more]

Re: Saturday PM

She needs medical attention for that. An ear infection can do that, bu I'd expect her to have had pain in that ear. Perhaps there has been some neurological damage. Or there could be a tumor in that area of the brain.

Re: Frustration X 10

Since you are damned if you do or don't, do what you think best and don't worry about reactions.

Re: Frustration X 10

What an incredible mess!

Has your aunt always tended to be irascible, and she's just getting worse and now even worse? Or is this a personality change? If a personality change, perhaps it would be helpful to meet with a psychopharmacologist [more]

Re: Installing a walk-in tub/geriatric upgrades
