Pam LL - A friend went through similar. Just before they put her under for the op, they told her there was a 50/50 chance she wouldn't wake up. She's now been clear for 10 years, and has two beautiful boys. My daughter's second name is Maria, after her, and if she is half as smart, kind and beautiful she will be a lucky girl. The record for survival after the op (they removed part of her oesophagus and most of her stomach) is 16 years, she's determined to beat it so she can see her boys grow up (one is 7, other is 4). Hopefully once you've reached the magic 5 you can breathe a bit easier.
Bringing the subject down to my natural level, Crikey, Blackest, a bloke who knows where to find Clematis!
Don't be daft Pam. You shouldn't apologise. It's kind of you to let us know what you have been through which makes all the hard work you put into your garden more admirable. I hope you continue in good health.
Pam, you must have posted at the same time as me! Your post is certainly not laugh of the century and you have my deepest sympathy. Glad you are feeling better and will be thinking about you and mentioning you before a certain heavenly being, having had a life threatening tumour myself.
Now, to ruin the tone and risk offending the more sensitive users of this forum, I recommend Blackest's link.
Oh bother, I've missed a whole evening of lovely hairy female chat. Was watching all the recorded stuff on Telly such as GW, Escape to the Country, while OH was out singing in a concert.
Verdun must feel the cold, he's always getting his coat
I use tweezers for whiskers and a razor for the rest. It's funny how when you get older hair grows in different places than it did before. Not much left under the arms - not that I'm complaining about that bit!
Pam, your garden is so lovely I never imagined you could have been so ill. How on earth did you manage?
You better get down on those knees GG.
Pam -even if we've not been through what you have- we can sympathise.
And we can count our blessings.
Blackest- I've got my legs crossed and they might stay that way for the foreseeable future!
I know subject became serious but just read some of that Amazon post, tears running down. calmed down now read the threads that show hope for the future
Pam, I sent you a message, but I don't think they are sending the email to warn people. It's more detail of our visit to England.
I'm no shrinking violet, but I only read a couple of lines. Perhaps tomorrow morning. Reading it now might give me nightmares.
Sorry TT. I'm obviously less refined than you.
I was a little surprised GG, I must admit. Honestly, get a bunch of women together and they go wild.
I'm one of those who didn't get an invite and I've never posted in the original Forkers Thread because I believe in the saying...all bad things start with good intentions.
I have no objection to the thread or its active members and don't want to suggest any wrongness about it but, well, it had the potential to be cliquey from the onset. I steer a wide path around cliques because its great when you're in one...
I't really not my intention to stir, just trying to support the goodness that this community holds.
Its a free world and we are all adults, but lately its been a bit of a playground on here.
Good morning Wintersong - I feel the same as you about cliques - however, this board has been so warm and friendly over the past few days - I agree there's a lot of goodness here.
Good morning everyone must be a gardeners dream Sunday mornings now on BBC 2 Gardners World next A to Z of Gardening and then the best till last Beechgrove Garden. Then the sun will be out time to go back into the garden maybe try some of the tips we have viewed not much frost here this morning so things starting to hot up now like everyone else glad to see it got loads in the greenhouse to get out into the garden.
