Watching the americas cup on youtube and there is a Go the Catherine in there!

Awesome - you go MSG!

Far out! Got a link? I'm sailing the AC!!!!!!!!!!! And I thought that ride on The Wave Muscat was the shit in Boston back on July 4th during the Extreme 40 Series. Hot damn. The motherfucking AC. Am I big time now?

This was a great post to read as I just burst into tears, full of fear and sorrow, mostly fear. Will pull it together, find my strength to address NS and Moose.

I feel so afraid and I hate it as its a beautiful bright sunny day outside, Dan and Zeke are napping in the other room and I ate a really nice potato soup for lunch which helps build my strength up and will help remove the 3 gallons of water (that's 24.9 pounds) that has accumulated in my legs. They are 3x their normal size. I want off the water pills and I want someone to take my walker downstairs so I can walk to the next house and back. That was todays goal.

I want to stop crying and I want to be able to poop out my ass like normal people and I want my goddamn Mommy. I'm 42 years old and I want my fucking Mommy. I hate feeling this. i can't find my strength and I know its here somewhere.

It's OK to be afraid. Walking you through this is what your frends are for. We're all here for you and will carry you when your strength is low.

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
-Mohandas Gandhi

You have far more power than cancer does. Remember that fear is not cowardice. Be strong and be well.

MSG,

Long time lurker, but sending you good wishes from the UK.

My #1 son had emergency brain surgery literally on the eve of his 21st birthday. It came completely out of the blue. So it was a great shock for all of us.

It took a year to get the wheels back on his wagon, but four years later he has finished his degree and just got married.

So, as others have said, it will be a bit of a marathon but you will be able to do it. Stay strong.

Thank J and G. Have some red wine, maybe dance around your living room thinking of me. Raise a few flags too,but no black ones. :D
Thanks for this post, it is good to feel so believed in. And it must mean also, your eye is healing well. ;)

This is inspiring news about your son's story. To be so young.... brain surgery! good lord! What is happening with me is fine, I'm fine. Congrats on his marriage and recovery. i know you love him more than anything. Thanks. The perspective helps.

where in the uk? i lived in dorset for awhile, in a re-designed barn near Bridport. loved it.

We are in the South West too, just north of Bristol. Yes, it is a nice part of the world. Easy access to Devon, Cornwall and Wales.

You are also helping many of us to put things into perspective. Have a good evening and a good nights sleep.

What a shock to read about this, MSG. Been out for a couple years & now catching up. This is a long thread to catch up on & then see this here.

My dad went through that, spent the rest of his life 'brown-bagging it', as we dubbed it. (Name that brown bag something. It really does help to deal with it.) Do yourself - do us - a favor & when they declare you free & clear (cuz we all know you'll win this thing) PLEASE continue to see your doc for your check-ups like religion! After Dad was declared free & clear, his doctor didn't schedule those appointments & one day it was too late. Better to go through those unpleasant visits & not need them than to not go & find out you should have. Of course, I know you will.

Wish I'd gotten back online a couple weeks ago - I was in Albany on business. Could have stopped by with cookies or flowers or whatever & maybe some encouragement.

And they're right - if you want something or don't want something, be it food, help, company - tell people. When they want to help, they'll help. And if you need alone time to recuperate, they'll understand that too.

I'm glad you're home, that's a good sign & a good thing. We're all pulling for you.

keep your feet propped up, hon. it will help your legs de-swell. maybe a pot of mint tea would help? i'm so sorry you are suffering. bitch away! sailors are unfazed by salty talk.
we've got that wild, cripsy wind over here in maine today too..i'm not welcoming it, feels like a bitch slap to summer and i hate to say goodbye.
i'm really thrilled you are home! it is a momentous coup to get out of that awful hospital! well done!
one (ironic) perk to your diagnosis is that you now qualify for a medical marijane card here in maine. if you think it might come in handy, just ask your doc for a written 'recommendation' and i can look into the necessaries for you to aquire one. if you do need at some point to go back to the hospital for a 'tune up', it might allow you the comfort of your weed while incarcerated?
thanks DTM for your intro..welcome to the madhouse! we are all so grateful to you for looking after our MSG!!!
we are all so proud of you Catherine..you are so courageous! keep fighting and don't worry if you need a few huge crying jags, they are part of the healing process.
i think the body grieves for the parts that are removed but has a short memory, so that won't bog you down too long.
we should get an awesome moon tonight with these wild skies..it's been really bright. tonight looks like waning 3/4 thank god you are here to enjoy it with us! xoxoxo
sending you this tune:

MSG,
Finding your strength.....look to Dan, your parents, and those around you for external sources of strength when you can't seem to find your own. Your own will return, but it might need a bit of coaching. In the meantime, those who love you will want nothing more than to give you what strength, encouragement, and help you need.

The ostomy.....No one asked you. It's not fair. FUCK!

It doesn't matter. It's there, and is necessary. Sitting to shit ain't that great a thing anyway (its just what you're used to). Adapt to it. Take ownership of it before it takes ownership of you (naming it is a little part of that).

HOLD FAST

Oh yeah, fluid.....Get (and keep on) moving. The more you move the more fluid will get pumped back into your bloodstream, the more your heart and kidneys will process, the faster you'll pee it away. But it takes time. Took me about 2 weeks post op to clear the same amount after my last surgery. I bet you can beat that though....

And when your sitting, put your feet up.

Cheers and thanks! A good day so far, my sister and her family here. I bathed my self for the first time since 9/3. :blink: It took awhile but I did it, by myself and I feel better. I'll take the small steps because they are mine and I am feeling proud of myself now, I am on the mend. I lost about a gallon and a half of fluid during the night last night and have been eating.

There's light and love all around me and it comes from this thread and this community.

Good Luck,

I had 7months of being in and out of hospital - been in remission for over a year and a half now:)

Know what you mean about being able to have a bath by yourself - was dependent on others for way too long.

All the Best from here in NZ,

Catherine -- So damned happy you are bouncing back like a frick'n super ball. I'll convince you to come to SE CT for Frosbiting after I visit you for drinks in V-whoreville. We'll get you out on the water. You won't have to do a thing, except kick back and relax.

We'll get you out on the water. You won't have to do a thing, except kick back and relax.

I'd be on foredeck?


4 dick? Your survival, from my selfish angle, means that I can have someone to continue to fuck with.

I do love you Catherine, but remember that I also have pictures........of the fucknuts from Cabot cheese.

PM me your address so I can send you some cookies laced with dope.

Say the word, and I'll post the Sharpie pictures. Please, dear, just type the word "word".

Love you!!!

Bob

It is a stunner, Mr. Perry.

I'll send cookies and a regatta hat. Cripes, I sent one to Cliffy......I'll send a couple to our beloved Catherine.

Maybe bury her in regatta hats? I'll commit to a half dozen.

Oh Bob, I just couldn't. Its bad enough I have your face on my tank top. :lol:

Ah good, made myself giggle. Was sitting here feeling very afraid, that I will die in 6 months and I don't really have my diagnosis yet, except that I had a cancerous tumor in my colon they removed completely and that during my surgery they found things on my liver. My oncology appt is Wednesday when I will have more info.

It's hard, I don't even know what the hell is going on yet. Knowledge is power and I will know, Wednesday. For now, Tuesday, my staples come out and I focus on healing from my surgery. But I still feel afraid. And, in the existential sense, very much alone, though all you cunts are in my damn house.

Jesus fucking Christ, MSG. "word bitches"? What an attention whore. God...... I really love to hate you.

I gotta visit early whilst you are in a weak state. As the bard, Shakes Beard once said --

There was a horny young girl named Jill,

Who fucked dynamite sticks for a thrill.

They found her vagina, in North Carolina...

and bits of her tits in Brazil.

Just sayin'

Edit - I'll be here all week. Tip your waitress.

Aren't there enough pics of my bewbs here already? The shirt is hanging on the wall by my bed for inspiration. I'll get a pic of me in it, once my arms and torso don't look so awfully skinny and the staples are out. Oh who cares, you just need my bewbs in it....how quickly I forgot. I lost a lot of weight (I estimate 15 pounds in 3 weeks that I really can't afford) They used a child BP cuff on me in hospital a few times.

I have so many questions for my doctors this week. I think I remember one saying the ostomy may be revesable. The hospital visits are just a blur. I realized I was there for 13 days or something reidiculous like that. Long time, I musta been really sick.
I work, used to work, (I'm on disability now apparently, my awesome boss got the paperwork started the day she heard I was admitted) in my Primary Care doctors office and am stopping by there Tuesday to copy some hospital, surgical and colonoscopy reports from my chart. Good benefit. Happy to post pics of my colon if anyone is interested.....

But you know? Despite how this sucks and my fear and grief, this isn't the worst thing that's ever happened in the world. Without sounding glib, I really, I mean really understand the meaning of be thankul for what you have and live each moment. I re-read this entire thread last night and I am once again, amazed at this place. Just floored by the out-pouring here for me. And others who have been touched by this beast. It's a magical place. Keep it coming, it helps me heal.

MSG, or Catherine, Wow just had a few minutes to sit and read, so sorry to hear everything that has happened. I kept seeing the "Go the Catherine" tag line and was meaning to figure it all out. We'll be pulling for ya here in Central Vt. Sorry I didn't catch on sooner but I haven't been spending much time on SA lately. Most of my time has been with lawyers, flood adjusters, doctors and family. Keep strong.

Walkers are sometimes called "Zimmer frames" in the UK, it sounds so much more sophisticated. For example "get out of my way or I'll whack you with my Zimmer" has a certain elegance.

Good luck this week

I have ask Catherine, have you counted your staples yet?

As time counts for nothing when you stuck flat on your back, I have to admit I got board and counted them.

167 staples

1300 and something stitches.....

I gave up in the end.

Love your C.

MSG, I know this has been said before so just a reminder, when you go Wednesday take someone with you as a second set of ears, and to ask questions. Being afraid is pretty normal. My fear came from not knowing, John Hopkins took 6 freaking weeks to diagnose. When you know Wednesday, you'll have a better understanding. BIG POSITIVE WAVES coming to you.

Winever, my list of questions is growing and I have 2 people coming with my: Dan and my Ma, who has 40 years of nursing experience. Almost ALL of my fear is from not knowing, that's a relief to hear. Once I know what I am up against, I have this delusion it will be easier. :huh:
