      Oder is illusion, chaos rules.  Charlie Sheen and JAG are living examples.  Hi to old timers out there!  New Dark Side? Never again. Won't happen. 1.2 percent interest on a CD is fucking obscene. I may have to cut back a little!!!!   Hugs to Joyce. I lost my only sibling a couple years ago. It gets lonely as we reach old age. I no longer worry about mm. Lived long enough already so ride the white whale and to hell with fretting. Live while you can, it goes really quick.

              i guess is odor is only an illusionn poor Mr. Bill must have lost his senses!  don't we all agree we are all glowing in the dark, just due to scans and xrays and things that grow on us in the night

               

              Mr. Bill would love a Darkside, just up his alley of late.  All his travels, and poor man, no working sniffer.

                          well I occasionally say things in a way that irritates and angers some folks, but I only know its the shunt not shunting or maybe shunting too fast?  Or squirting my liver making it grow? who knows, but I dont smell or spell either.  I live next door almost to a nuke plant,  in fact DH  works across a waterway…we always calculate how fast.   him first, me next, the rest of the world follows.  No rapturizing here. 

                           

                          And as you can read in other post, I just had a shower trying to shower my mom.  so I is clean!!! and don't smell no spells either.   about 4 hours from here, the other day we had a teeeeeeeny earthquake too! Sister in Law is still safe in Japan thus far.

                            Now now, Bonnie. I've seen you post perfectly lucid, multi-paragraph entries when you want to. Don't go blaming your shunt or your organs( !!!)  for your unusual phrasing. Really, some people will use any excuse …but their liver? Honestly indecision

                              well LUCIE  'splain me this.  sending me for CT scan to find out if the shunt distal tube has gone on a walkabout somewhere deeeeeeeeep in the abyss I call my tummy.  Find out (my thoughts) that CSF cerebal spinal fluid is fattening to livers or not?  well it is suppose to keep our brains from bouncing too hard, and it is full of goodies, perhaps it is loaded with calories too!  maybe that is why the end of the tube cannot be felt through the gargantuan belly (truely looks huge when nothing sits up higher to sort of balance out the issue) haha

                               

                              also I feel like maybe the real elmer fudd is hunting for an illusive hernia, that they tell me could be called a inscisional (something like that) hernia before they operate to fix some muscle or something.

                              SOOOO CT scan + overwatering of liver or spleen, or what ever else could be under there. hmmmmm  I shall ask them to watch for any strange blobs dancing  on what ever organs are found.

                              New drugs are weird.  I am tired  up down up down (helping and doing for my mom) there are 24 steps from my room to her apartment all down hill,  then ya know what?  uphill after that.  whew.

                                Hmmm, besides the fact I'm not a doctor nor do I play one on an off-topic message board…l do know you were an "unusual phraser" long before your organs or extras took their convoluted path to wherever or whatever :)  But if you want to attribute your cat washing to your liver- who am I to stop you! Have at it – I'm just not sure it's all that entertaining or usual for a cat.   Enjoy ! ( poor cat )

                                  Oh Rox, I know, I know, what's a girl to do?  Cat washing took place when you were off the internet. Chloe Cat to be sure. I had researched how to wash a cat, and garners some info.  Bought some kitty shamoo too!  (had been removing ceramic tile floors and the CATS were getting all white.  (not that white is so bad, but when one is black, I got confused)  So she black kitty named ArCEE went to visit her nephew and his person mom (who turned out to be DD and her living in sin my perspective SIL.

                                   

                                  Chloe our Bunny kitty, old and arthritic like me, without all her senses about her….trusted DD and I to bathe the cement dust out of her BUNNY fur.

                                  Now we have LOUD LOW FLYING AIRPLANES circleing around our little bit leaking Nuke Plant  OH MY GOODNESS along with upcoming CT injections, and drinks, all aaround…I shall be visible to one and all.   eeeeeek

                                   

                                  Black cat…no bath….she chomps me too much, and for some reason my shunt tells all my organs what to do or not to do. If catty fangs dive into my arm in play,  whoooosh goes my equaliberian and I spout red stuff.  So the CTS that they wanna do to me, will hopefully once and for all tell them that Bonnies Kitties are safe on the outside world, and Tubes are buried deep perhaps dancing the fandango with my lady parts (inside ones there gents)

                                      Naw Rox its ok.  Just not dealing with the full deck at the moment.  Too much happening here at the mo and lack of sleep. My cat washed up very nicely.  She is a gentle one.   The other one (black one) was sent to stay for that weekend with my DD and her group of sinning son in law to be.  and DD black kitty named Sir Henry VIII.

                                      CT (aka Cat scan) will keep tabs on my LIVER washing mechanics cos I swear the tube is squirting brain fluid and helping my belly grow to extraordinary proportions.

                                        It's okay, Bonnie. The MRF posts are delievered to my e-mail and go directly into a folder. When I get around to reading – I just skim. I thought your last post was about a bunny! This new function is convenient -but I  am rarely inspired to visit the boards.  Without the e-mail function I wouldn't keep up with people I care about even the little bit I do interact :(   Good and bad.I miss everyone.   Real life is overwhelming for me, right now-I know it is for a lot of the old posters and it's difficult  to keep everything going. The sadness of the board ( any cancer site), without the balance of the Mpip social sides makes it too difficult to continue consistently or enthusiastically. You have to buffer,somehow, and that option isn't available any longer.  Take care, Bonnie and know that people ARE thinking about the connections made here even if they don't visit as often or at all ( well, SOME people are thinking about others-ha!)

                                          Unfort Rox, I will be one of the few that will miss this place totally.  I don't have issues to deal with on the main board, but the love and respect I have learned and those whom I have 'met' I will miss the most.  It was so easier when a posting could and was addressed to everyone.  Now some are on FB some on private e-mail, the rest I get touche by via this OFF TOPIC board.  maybe those that have really left, are just not needing the strength we each gain from each other in a patient way.  Or in a caregiver type way.  I dunno.

                                          I am sad though.

                                          I would have gone totally insane if it were not for many of you guys here  at the beginning and through all the messes that have happened to me.  in my life.

                                          ah well.  My real life to some minor compared to others extent is overwhelming me as well, but I do tend to look forward to some NORMAL talk, even though we are all cancer guys and guyetts.  have an occupational therapist coming over to assess my home, since my mothers second fall, last wed.  I am tired.

                                                        SOOOO CT scan + overwatering of liver or spleen, or what ever else could be under there. hmmmmm  I shall ask them to watch for any strange blobs dancing  on what ever organs are found.

                                                        New drugs are weird.  I am tired  up down up down (helping and doing for my mom) there are 24 steps from my room to her apartment all down hill,  then ya know what?  uphill after that.  whew.

                                                          Now now, Bonnie. I've seen you post perfectly lucid, multi-paragraph entries when you want to. Don't go blaming your shunt or your organs( !!!)  for your unusual phrasing. Really, some people will use any excuse …but their liver? Honestly indecision

                                                            well I occasionally say things in a way that irritates and angers some folks, but I only know its the shunt not shunting or maybe shunting too fast?  Or squirting my liver making it grow? who knows, but I dont smell or spell either.  I live next door almost to a nuke plant,  in fact DH  works across a waterway…we always calculate how fast.   him first, me next, the rest of the world follows.  No rapturizing here. 

                                                             

                                                            And as you can read in other post, I just had a shower trying to shower my mom.  so I is clean!!! and don't smell no spells either.   about 4 hours from here, the other day we had a teeeeeeeny earthquake too! Sister in Law is still safe in Japan thus far.
