    • been working on my power cleans today at the gym. i went up 5kgs, so power cleaning a whole 30kgs LOL which sounds like nothing. it is all technique and not at all like that slow weight lifting i am used to which is why i am doing it. i almost got myself across the neck a few times. i still think i am doing it wrong as i can flick the weight up without any leaping around. either that or i am doing too light a weight. i have a bar at home so i will practise with some you-tubes. my grip is improving too. i still havent needed the silly fluffy adidas tennis wristbands for any reason other than decoration. up to being able to farmer's walk 66kgs ( 2 x 33kg dumbells). more than i weigh!! and if i add on the 10kg weighted vest which i can still do. even more than i weigh and then some!!! i am going to try lunging them next week just to see if i can.

        • Secondly.....we have an appointment with the plastic surgeon tomorrow. 3 pm. This is just an appointment to organise the operation, so another day gone......... I must remember that this plastic surgeon possibly has a waiting list as long as your arm, with people like my DH waiting for an op........ Must be patient....... But it is easier said than done.
          DH is talking death and dying, and he's not gonna see his wee boys grow up, and he's not gonna see where his girls go with their lives. Hes not afraid of dying, but all these things are zooming through his mind. I am trying to say ......whoa.......... You are jumping the gun, but he is convinced that this is the end of the line.
          I have spoken with someone who deals with cancer and she has said that this is quite normal, until it becomes un normal. As in if he stops eating, or showering or continues on and on about dying......... Then i need to deal with it.
          Holy guacamole....... wasn't born into this role.
          I is struggling myself!!!!!!!
          Anyway i have managed to get sleeping tablets, so DH is sleeping, but i am tossing and turning a weeny bit myself.


          Anyway just drunken thoughts of a raging alcoholic Gwamma !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
          I shall hopefully report back tomorrow night.
          Take care everyone

          • Oh Gwamma - thinking of you!!

            • i've cleared my inbox G. i do know my ex used to get a bit like that at the slightest sign of any illness. he had a lump once on his shoulder which he decided was terminal. i suffer from that thing where i just check out as Jac puts it. and after a while i almost felt mean as i really stopped caring. i just wanted the whining and the extra taking it out on me to go away. maybe deep down i knew it wasnt anything to actual worry about or maybe i really am a bitch. it was just a fat lump in the end but the drama was ridiculous. and at no time had the doctors ever said it may be anything else. this was all pre doc visit and waiting for the op to get it out!!!

              the main thing G is to look after yourself and i know that sounds selfish but you cant look after anyone else if you run yourself ragged.

              • Hi Gwamma. The results could have been better, but they also could have been a lot worse. Sounds like he's getting good care. You're right, though, it's changed your role for a while and that never feels good. I don't know about your other cyber friends here, but I suspect they'll agree with me when I say this is a safe place for you to come and just be yourself. Venting, whining, raging, moaning, and making inappropriate jokes - they're all good here . Especially if it means you can keep on keeping on in your real life. We'll be here.

                    • Best of luck and hugs to you and hubs Gwamma. DH is lucky to have someone so understanding and patient (as is possible in the situation) who feeds him good food.

                      My suggestion for #4 is quality time with hubby! Especially with you both worrying so much. Finding some peaceful (or awesome whichever you prefer) together time would be good for you both.

                        This ^ . Also, find things that make you laugh and make the time to do them.

                        On another note . . . a FROST??? good grief.

                        • Soft foods with calories? Can he eat mashed potatoes? Drenched in butter, they're yummy and soft and caloric.

                          Also, chocolate whole milk shakes with banana and/or egg yolks - add in some whey or cottage cheese for protein.

                          Not sure what the limitations are, but almost any veggie soup can be run through a blender or food processor to make it creamy - and again for calories, milk and butter can be added.

                          • all my ideas for 4,5 and 6 would include exercise or misbehaving somehow LOL i do do tame stuff to like go for nice bush walks with the kids at a leisurely pace or do some weaving. even set yourself an exercise goal. something more specific than exercise every day. something attainable but challenging. i find it always helps to have some control over something in your life when it is all very up in the air and you dont know what is going on. you could also go for a weekly massage. excellent for de-stressing yourself. i always feel a million times better if i have had a decent massage. altho it pays to avoid the ones who tell you all their problems! other things you could do is make like Annie and have a bush walk day. Go on a tramp somewhere you've never been before for the afternoon. Or even go visit somewhere you've never been and would like to go such as an art exhibition.

                            • Hmmmmmm great ideas thanx guys.
                              So the plastic surgeon is concerned and tells us that its 50/50 whether its gone to the nodes or not.
                              We go in on tuesday next week to have dye injected around the melanoma site.
                              This particular guy is chocka booked up till christmas, so wonderful that he has fitted us in nextl tues.DH will then have a series of xrays over the following few hours to track the dye. Then at 5pm he goes in for his op. It will be about 1.5 hours long and they will excise the original melanoma site first. The surgeon wants to create a 2 cm margin, so it will be a rather large hole!!!!! He wanted to know if DH wanted a chin like john trevolta or Michael jackson!!!! LMAO.
                              Anyway then he will remove the dyed lymph nodes if there are any. So another waiting game. So its 50/50 whether the lymph nodes are affected, and if they are then its extensive surgery from behind the ear all the way down to the chest. Anyway we wont go there unless we have to!!!!!

                              • my 4, 5 and 6 would be lots of immersive activities - books, movies, sex - anything that completely absorbs your attention.
                                I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.
