      due to things beyond my control…..

      due to things beyond my control….. seems I am too high a risk for new chest things.  ah well I am still me, although more and more like that turkey carcass left on the counter at Christmas Time after everyone has had their way with it.  hmmm.  Doctor feels we have been soooo lucky all these years what with melanoma, resections of things, and earlids and breast cancer, and shunts and stuff that it is like playing roulette and the pesky shunt tube is all the way to the bottom of me abdomen.  

      lets hope the CT scan of my brain shows that I have not at least scrambled that…..

              thanks Carver….  just back from CT scan (hahah) they did it twice, as they did not have prior knowledge of the shunt, so they did a ‘double take’  much to my mirth!  the handsome hunky tech guy came forth with gently helping me up asking was I dizzy?  I replied oh yes! so he helped me to my huzband out in the waiting room, and BOB burst into guffaws of larfter!

              ya I am also bummed by not being able to see prior archives, and to lose my newly found posting of pictures ability that Mr. Yawn taught me to do…..
