I suspect JW is already working on an iPhone app that will use the gyroscopic sensor and speaker phone to announce "UNCLEAN, UNCLEAN, a leper approaches" whenever he walks about the office ... ;^)

Good luck with the doctors John!

The lady who's pushing the lunch cart around, switches from "Sandwiches!" to "Bring Out Your Dead!" when she comes by my cube. I wonder what she knows? I'm happy. So happy...

I had swollen lymph nodes in my neck a while back. Biospy and CAT scan said they were harmless and they went away. A friend had swollen lymph nodes in her armpit. I told her get it checked NOW. She didn't listen, now she's scattered somewhere in the desert. Christie almightie.

What did you just admit to a murder or a burial?

Less than a month after breaking my wrist, and mostly splint off and very good range of motion, the hand therapist was quite impressed.

Great news, Bruce.

My doctor says that I don't seem to have an auto-immune disorder. He can't explain my neck lump or my scales. I'll see a dermatologist for the latter; we're going to ignore the former unless it gets bigger. (My toomah is about marble-sized now, and has been diminishing.)

Good news Bruce and I hope they'll get to the bottom of your problems John.

Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær!
I think I suddenly became female. Why? Because last night I could swear I got my period.

I've heard plenty of women complain about the bloating and cramps they experience each month. Those descriptions describe precisely what I was feeling last night.

It was waves of intense pain... it felt like the most severe gas buildup I've ever experienced but worse. It would be fine for a minute or two and then it would start to hurt and build up to a crescendo before tapering off again. After an hour or so of this (which obviously prevented me from sleeping) I decided to try some Advil and a warm bath. That and a good, uh, 'movement' seemed to do the trick. I was finally able to get to sleep around 5am.

I don't know what the problem was. It certainly felt like a lower-intestinal problem. I was thinking that maybe the chicken-salad I put in the sandwich I had for dinner was, perhaps, past its prime, so-to-speak.

Sorry if this post was TMI.

CS, sorry to hear about any pain.

But -- I can barely relate with the aspect of turning female with this haha anecdote . When running many times a week one year my nipples got real tender and I joked that it was all the built-up estrogen leaking out. :)

History passes the first time as tragedy, the second time as farts. - Roy Edroso
Delurking here. After surviving for 5 years with stage 4 colo-rectal cancer, my father passed away April 22. Both my sister and I were with him that morning, to take him to his oncologist, however the strain of the trip (in town) was too much for him. We knew he didn't have long, but didn't realize how short a time it was.

I know El Jeffe posted his colonoscopy pictures previously, but I would like to re-iterate again, if you are close to 50, or have a family history of colo-rectal cancer, talk to you Dr. about getting one. The drugs are great, and while the prep isn't the most comfortable, it is only one night of sitting on the john. The matter was brought even closer, as I went to a local hospital to stay with a cousin while her husband was having a tumor removed from his colon this afternoon. He is good after the surgery, and the surgeons think they caught it early, but it goes to remind you to get checked.

ps, when did i hit the age when time spent with family members is spent talking about health concerns, etc. Getting old sucks, but it beats the alternative.

Aw, man. So sorry. It's like an instant swelling of my eyes, and heaviness in my chest. This stuff really gets to me.
I am truly sorry. Sounds like he fought well for 5 years. That's all one can ask.
Peace be with you and your family, Steve.
