        • Hugs and hugs and hugs, Gwamma, as always.

          Back to a doc tomorrow - this time for a cat. George (the cat) has been warring with Freddie (another one of my cats), and George got himself a deep cheek cut in the process, which is not really healing all that well. Harrumph. But what do you expect when one has a colony of male felines, even if they are neutered, eh?

            Sorry, but I had to laugh at this.... funny stuff... Though you are right that meditation will do much to calm you, you have to be willing to be calm for it to work.... my wife can't sit still long enough to even think about meditation.... She's not such a good candidate for a meditation.... medication.... thats a different story all together!

            • i had a giggle too! i am not an airy fairy hippy either. heaven forbid!!! but you are definitely right that meditation is calming if you want to be calmed down.

              G where are you? how is it going?

              i have had a couple of male felines who never got on till i moved and locked them in the shed together for a week. they were the best of buddies after that. we never had any vet trips and they were both siamese abby crosses so they were very punch up orientated. i did find that when we were up north and it was humid, the cats war wounds ( from other cats ) healed alot worse than here, where it is colder and not anywhere near as muggy.

                I have a book for y'all: "The Everything Meditation Book" by Rosemary Clark. It is from this book that I learned that there are waaaay more ways to meditate than just the lotus-position-palms-up-ommmm-chanting one. I seriously, seriously recommend this title. I have one kid with milder-end anxiety issues, and her pediatrician told her bold-faced to get into the practice.

                Be warned that there is a newer meditation title by a different author from the Everything... series, but the Rosemary Clark one is the bomb.

                • Good morning to you all.
                  Just popping in for an extremely quick update.
                  Yes we both learnt transendental meditation many years ago, and i so need to practice that again.
                  Yesterday was a nightmare, with xrays after xrays after xrays. They found three sentinel lymph nodes, as in the first ones to drain to from the melanoma site. The surgeon removed two, however the third was unexcessable. The excism ( not exorsizm as i said to the specialist daaaaaa) was huge, but he is hoping it wont cause lip droop!!!!!!!!!!
                  Mondays ct scan came back fine yay!!!!!!
                  I have just spoken to. DH and he has bjeenawake all night. He has had 9 ice blocks and heaps of ice cream, so sounds like little boyz club. LOL
                  I have just finished shifting the sprinklers, have made myself a coffee and am heading into the hospital now.
                  So its just a waiting game now with the results hopefully back in the next week, ten days.
                  Thank you all for your support, and prayers. We can, feel the vibes from way down here!!!!!!!!!

                      Thanks for the recommendation - even though it wasn't for me . It seems to be out of print, so can't get a new copy in NZ. I'm casting around to see if I can find a second hand one before I pay the postage from the US!! If I can find someone, I'll post it here in case anyone else is interested.

                      • so far so good G! hang in there xx lips are muscles so, in theory, he should be able to do lip exercises to get the droop sorted?

                        i've had coffee lol as if i would forget! and taken the dog to the beach for a run. there was the wierdest washed up creature thing which on closer inspection looked like a dead skinned seal with the skin hanging out behind it. it wasnt that big and didnt have that huge teeth to be a sea lion. i was wondering if it had been gotten by a shark but i would have expected more to have been missing. it didnt smell yet so it was recently dead which i was relieved about or the dog would have had a roll and then i would have needed to get the sprinklers out too!!!

                        • Hugs, Gwamma!

                          Lip droop - speech therapist. Try to get a referral and then go, just to head anything off. They are the specialists in facial muscles affected by just anything, and they have the techniques and tools. Betcha your hospital has at least one on staff. Yea for good news!!!

                              thankfully i am not squeamish. always interesting what is there. we also get penguin skins with the flippers left on from where the sealions have eaten them. i very much dislike the dog picking them up in case someone spots him and thinks he's done it. anyone from DOC would be smart enough to know he hasnt by the forensic evidence but still, less drama if we dont go there. beach combing is one of my more fave activities.

                                Probably NOT the kind of beach combing you were refering to.....
