Hi,

The words "A12 & head for the Naze" mostly call up "Harwich for the continent" for me. But then, on the bicycle I don't go on that kind of road if I can help it; these are much older memories.

'Jane's Rainbow', a colourful name for our wondrous ship, dedicated to a lady whose life was full of colour. On the 23rd March, 2013, it was revealed to Jane, our eldest daughter, that rainbows do have an end with a Pot of Gold. Jane was our Pot of Gold. She shines as bright in our memories now as she did in life.

Afternoon, just catching up and enjoying a coffee. Sending love and thoughts to Nigel and Ann, hope you are both feeling better and not too stressed. This year you really must come down that dreadful A12 ( it was closed Monday AM with a multiple accident at Rivenhall and Billy and I were taking our Niece and 2 nephews back to Heathrow for a flight home to New York! We got them there with just an hour before take off!!) and come and spend a day at the new beach hut, it is on Hipkins beach at the Naze. We must arrange a date when the warm weather comes .
We spent a lovely two days showing off London to our American young, we walked 7 miles on Saturday, from Borough market to Westminster, river bus to the Tower and dinner in St Katherines at the Dickens Inn, then back along the embankment to the flat. London is so beautiful at night with Tower Bridge all lite up. Then on Sunday we were back home and I cooked roast lamb for 14 family. It all went far too quick but was such a lovely few days.

Sending love to all, lots of coffee cake left anyone care for a slice?
With love
Wendy xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Ranger1, your post reminds me...I was a home birth in one of the coldest '40s winters on record. We lived at the top of a hill; not particularly steep, but cover it with snow & ice & 'steep' takes on a whole new meaning. My Mother was delivered by a Midwife whose only modes of transport were a bicycle & her brogues. Somehow, she made it through, delivered me & if my Mother's recollections are true, Nurse Fisher had at least one other delivery to make the same day. What an amazing woman!

Nigel, every couple of years we get a big snow storm around St. Patrick's Day. It surprises many people who think that winter is over and makes the rest of us who know better say naughty words that turn the air blue. The day of my birth, March 21st, 1969, there was snowstorm bad enough that my father was out plowing the roads for the town and my mother had to call and have dispatch radio him to come home and take her to the hospital. They got there about two hours before I made my appearance.

No power loss here. I did lose Beau briefly in a snow drift. I thought it was funny, puppy not so much. I have half the porch cleared off, the plow guy has been here, and I still have no place I need to be, so I will take my time clearing a path to the car and clearing around the car. I will need to get out sometime today or early tomorrow morning. I am out of coffee.

Our power and cable were out from 2 - 8:30 AM. A drunk hit a mainline pole with his truck. So the storm was only really bad for him. A mere inconvenience for most of the rest of us. Mum was freaked out, of course but she's getting back to normal now. Damn weather terrorists, scaring the elderly like they do... even naming winter storms now to get betters ratings.

I waited for light, did my usual "storm stuff" at Mum's, cleared the snow from the garage door, had a bite, and headed back to Mum's to get the generator hooked up (big job). It's nineteen steps door-to-door. When I opened the door, the power was back on. >:-D

Must check the weather in Chicago... hope the Raps get away without delay.

In RI, we had snow which changed to rain. I got the snow off my car while it was still snow, before it became wetter, heavy, and slushy. It is still raining. Temps are expected to drop to below freezing in a few hours, and there may be a few snow showers followed by wind. My home hasn't lost power, though others have.

A wind turbine has toppled. It powers the bathhouse at a small state beach and was erected about two years ago. The winds were too strong. I hope others in the state and those yet to be built are/will be sturdier.

It sounds like the diagnosis could have been worse, but still . . . .
I would rather not have an outpatient shoulder replacement, either. Hospitals are no fun, but I've nobody at home to help out, and I'd want to be sure my shoulder was working before being sent away. I suppose even after an inpatient surgery I'd soon be sent somewhere for therapy. Of course, now it seems insurance companies, not doctors, decide what one "needs."

They found a sentinel node! This makes it easier to decide where we go from here!

Medicine, especially surgery, isn't pretty. It does seem to advance, though, and Pat would have been dead years ago if it weren't for those advances. So would I, for that matter.

There's a billboard here touting the skills of a doctor who is the "only surgeon" in the area who does shoulder replacement surgery as an outpatient procedure. Personally, if I have to have a shoulder replaced I want some time in the hospital afterwards!

Well, back when she had thyroid cancer at 17, the doctors at DC's Georgetown Medical Center took out her thyroid, parathyroid, and 71 lymph nodes. She says she was "peeled from neck to armpit." There might not be any nodes to discover! That was better than half a century ago and things have improved somewhat, I guess. Oh! The thyroid cancer is linked directly to the x-ray treatments (!) she got when she was 7 to treat...poison ivy.

This will be her fifth type of cancer.

very big word!
Lymphoscintigraphy (sentinel lymph node mapping) is an imaging technique used to identify the lymph drainage basin, determine the number of sentinel nodes, differentiate sentinel nodes from subsequent nodes, locate the sentinel node in an unexpected location, and mark the sentinel node over the skin for biopsy.

Rap, have a good time in Norway. I lived there for three years when I was in my pre-teens. As you sail down the Oslo Fjord, wave at a little town called Drøbak for me, will you? You'll know it, they'll probably point it out, it's the narrowest part of the fjord and there's an island with a fortress called Oskarsborg in the middle. It's where a German ship called the Blucher was sunk just prior to the occupation in WW II, which slowed down the Germans just enough for the King and the Parliament to escape to the west coast and from there to the UK, many of them smuggled over on fishing boats. And if you get the time, check out Akershus Fortress and the Resistance Museum in Oslo. That was one of my favorite things to do when we'd get a day in Oslo.

I am not the person to draw a line between privacy and summarizing someone else's issues without a PM to ask permission.
For one thing privacy no longer exists and I become more old fashioned with every passing year.

I brought this up in what I thought was a tactful way but was instead cryptic. Without Keb I would have been in the dark so his post is a good thing. I was also worried. What if someone posted a prognosis regarding a child who was not told of a dire reckoning and read the post ?

I over think most things so if there is no problem there is no foul,
which means Keb should post to his heart's content.

btw Dean and us got into the top tier of support in the country for his condition of wanting to hide.

Rap if you see a pale beer in Norway called Giraffe get it. It has a long neck with spotted foil. You will find it amazing and you won't need pain killers or the ability to stand. It will be imported since it is brewed in Denmark.

Keb, If you are going to make summaries with people's permission you should know what the facts are which are far more encouraging than your words portrayed. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1165/

I met the 80 year old next door neighbor of my son who lives off campus. They both share an interest in history. After chatting I noticed we had a similar knowledge base, psyche and curiosity. I asked if he was an aviation engineer and he surprisingly said yes. The last plane he helped engineer was the 767. I believe he is a national treasure if we had that designation in our society as they do in japan. We share the same first name among other things like a fascination with pre history. My son's vitality and drive is infectious and refreshing. I hope they continue to look after each other with support and comfort.

Surgery Thursday morning to reattach the left bicep at the elbow. The doc didn't even need an MRI -- he could tell by looking and feeling. It's about an hour procedure and no overnight hospital stay. The doc feels that I'll be able to visit Norway if I'm a good boy and really, really careful. Being on a ship means staying in one place for a couple of weeks, so it shouldn't be too bad once I get aboard.

AND! Pat has a biopsy on her right breast tomorrow. Something about the architecture therein. She won't do anything until after Norway, though.

Oh, my! I certainly hope you can go, and without pain or restricted movement. That was supposed to be my next trip, with the same line of ships but on a less luxurious one. I was hoping to do it in 2018, but just learned that my son's family is going to Disney World this fall and I may join them there. If I do, it will take some time for my budget to recover.
If you do this trip, I hope you'll share a lot of your adventures and photos where I can see them.

Most likely I've torn the bicep loose at the elbow -- a distal bicep tear, just like the one I did to right arm some years ago. Because fixing this will involve surgery I've stopped taking aspirin and ibuprofen for pain and am using acetaminophen with mild codeine. I will see the hand/arm doctor Tuesday (Monday's a holiday) and I will get an MRI. I still hope to cruise the sunny shores of Norway from the 15th of March through the first week of April. Relaxing on the deck of the M/S Trollfjord, dancing under the stars until dawn...actually it's an educational trip to investigate the Aurora Borealis. I do hope I can go!

C'mon, Rap! If it hurts, don't do it!
I hope you're soon out of pain.
Oslo--nice, but not with a sore arm.
