      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.  
Heaven can wait

Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

Recommended Posts

I am wishing you the very best Cathrine - no distrespect at all. But...

 

 

You think cancer is a problem - huh! If I were hanging by my last thread I sure as fuck wouldn't be wasting a moment posting on sailing anarchy. If this is all you've got in life - god help you - cancer is not your problem.

 

 

When you get all better from this bullshit - add a few things to your list of important shit. This way, when you really get close to the end, you won't be wasting your time with the likes of idiots who hang out here.

 

 

Godspeed - and all that other crap people are supposed to say at times like these when shit is hitting the fan.

 

it would probably not surprise any of you that this is a sock puppet of a douche who has pulled this sorry ass act a number of times. never gets old, eh joe?

 

 

Joe eh? Looks like we have a winner in the name the bag comp.

 

How about a one time relaxation on the no outing rule ed?

Professor aka MSG

 

I have in the past sort of avoided the cancer thread. I've lost two friends to cancer this year and was not to inclined to "peek" in the thread. I just couldn't help notice the thread always being on top. When I finally went in and saw that the conversation was about MSG. I was floored.

 

Professor aka MSG, I am so happy that you made it through the operation and I am keeping my fingers crossed for all the pathology reports. FWIW, My father in law had the same exact procedure for a stage 4 tumor. That was NINE years ago. Yes, he has to wear a bag - they took out a lot. He can still eat a ton of barbecue, although I think he may have to change to the "magnum" bags. Has not slowed him down at all.

 

You take your time and recover in the best way so you can continue creating mayhem. We love you.

Lots of love,

 

Shaun and Family.

Nice to see you again HcW

 

I think this thread has brought a lot of us back to SA again.

Many of us don't come here frequently anymore, if at all.

 

This thread, like a lot of them, took a nasty turn for a page or two. I'd like to help bring it back around by reiterating what Bowgirl pointed out. There are a lot of name I haven't seen for awhile posting to let you know they are thinking about you. They care and want only the absolute best for you. I want you to know I am also among them. Although we have never met (YET!) I have been following the events and anxiously awaiting each update and cheering every little step in a positive direction.

 

Wishing you a speedy recovery and all the best for the future.

From Catherine's friend Dan:

 

Sunday 2am.....

Heather, who Catherine just called "the nicest nurse I've ever met" came by and finally took off the tape that was holding the hose in her nose. It had been driving her nuts with the abrasion and her allergies to skin adhesives(such as the ones on nicotine patches) and all so Heather removed it, cleaned the nose and replaced it with a stick strip that wasnt the usual tape but more like the stickers we used to use to label cassette tapes. [You youngsters may have to look up cassettes on wikipedia...] She also gave her a dose of adavan- my personal favorite time of night. usually means a good solid nap for an hour or two or more... Yay for adavan. Where's mine is what i wanna know....?

More from Dan:

 

NEW ROOM as of 12am... They moved her to 6217 which is a private room a little nicer and roomier. I want to say thanks to all who sent flowers! That is filling the room up nicely with some color. I have a busy day tomorrow but I will be back here tomorrow night. I think some art and photos for the wall would be great and she said her favorite animals are Hippos and Horses so I thought i'd get some shots of those to hang up. Also, favorite flowrs include lilacs and orchids. Anyone wants to send some stuff for the wall would be great!! Art, photos of you and her, photos of hippos- horses- flowers- sailing races-(I'm looking at you sailing anarchists!!) etc really anything that would brighten the room but please no sad clown tackiness. LOL. You know what I mean...

and another.

 

She is likely to be here for a bunch more days so its never too late to hit the mailbox y'all.

Okay, thats my pitch. Again, huge thanks for everyones love and support be it flowers, gifts, calls, emails, prayers and kind words. Its ALL deeply appreciated!

I'm heading out of here in the middle of the night to head home- 2 hours south- got work to do but I will return tomorrow night to spend the night here again. And every night after that if neccessary... Same is true for when she goes home. I'm in this for the long haul and have been since we met and first fell in love in 1987... Holy shit what a road.... heheh.

So, yes she is in good company and has many loved ones. Sometimes she is totally up for visits and others not but please dont let that discourage you from coming by. Her one request: leave the kids at home. Nieces and nephews might be the exception, probably are, but maybe a call first to check? Use yer judgement....

May I point out that if everyone just replies to this one with a quote, we will soon be on a scum-free new page, and can work on not quoting any scum to keep it that way.

Not at all. I have Gator the neighbor dog over here all the time, and about 6 acres of my back yard is swamp, accessible only by airboat or swamp machine. I'm pretty sure some big ones live back there.

 

Here ya go, greetings from the whole pack, including Gator in the foreground.

Great to see

Once the farting is fluent & the juice stays down & comes out the right way the "hose in the nose" is the next thing to go

More updates from Dan this morning.

 

Hey Y'all!

Another night gone. The sun rises on post-op day 4...

How about that incredible full moon last night? Powerful stuff...

And speaking of powerful stuff, Catherines friends on sailinganarchy.com have totally won my heart! There is an endless thread on their discussion board of everyone pouring on the love! I've been reading it for two days and I am still only on sept 7th... Long long thread o' love!! Thank you folks so much!

 

EXCELLENT BREAKING NEWS:

Catherine just broke wind! Hee hee! That is actually the big milestone we've been waiting for! I know its funny, feel free to laugh...

But the truth is thats a FANTASTIC sign! It means her bowels are waking up and coming back to life and action and it means she will soon get juices and then FOOD! YAAAYYYY! She has been(still is) soooo hungry!

Yesterday her catheter was removed. Another great sign. Next will be the nose hose that she hates and also cant wait to see in her rearview mirror.

[Hmmm... do boats have rearview mirrors??]

So, yeah folks, give a cheer and do the happy dance! Big progress everyday! I'm so proud of her bcuz even tho she likes to say "I cant do this", she knows its bullshit and then she does it anyway...

Yes it was another long uncomfortable night but she gets up to go to bathroom, walks the hall, rolls over on her side etc ALL things she could not do for the preceding 72 hours atleast!

GO THE CATHERINE!! And huge thanks to David who is also doing the super-human effort to be by her side while keeping his job etc going. No small effort on 3-5 hr sleep per night. Hat's off to David, and a round of juice for everyone in celebration of MSG making noise ;)

 

I've got that song "Raise a little hell" going through my mind when I think of MSG ...keep at it girlfriend!

Today is a very productive day. The farting continues, a couple laps in the hall, nose tube has been removed, and even got her outside for a little sunshine. The dr.s want to start feeding her broth and fluids today. Her moods ebb and flow, and the pain is intense, every movement is exhausting, but her spirit is strong, and she is not a quitter. They just took her downstairs for an ultrasound.

Everyones encouragement means so much to her, which she does read, whether or not she responds.

It is wonderful to see the daily progress. At this pace she may be going home by weeks end.

Stay tuned,

Thirdworld

Great News to start a Monday! MSG you have been on my mind all weekend and in my prayers at mass. Sounds like your body is doing all the right things. As a child we had a cheer at camp. It was Wasste, Wasste, Lilly Wasste. It meant Good, Good, Very Good. So, here is a big Wasste for you!

Catherine - Great to hear you're on the mend.

 

You asked for pictures of hippos - here's a 1 week old hippo baby:

FYI - When nature calls for a hippo, they rise up out of the water, twirl their tails as fast as they can, and quite literally let things fly.

 

Let it fly girl. Let it fly.

Catherine, no words that haven't already been said. But I check back here a couple hours a day, and cried a bit when I read the diagnosis, then cried a bit when you came through surgery fine. Keep plugging, and if you are ever in the PNW, you know you have a place to stay and sail. Kathleen

Did you ever think your farts would make grownups cheer? Or pray for more? I'll guess the answer would be 'no.'

 

All mine do is make my 2-year-old giggle and say 'No toot toot daddy!' To which I respond with another.

 

Here's to farting, healing and you getting home soon.
