  • Phew - what a day.........
    We saw the Plastic surgeon who informed us that there was no cancer found in the lymph nodes YyyyyeeehhhhAAA.
    However there was more melanoma found in the excised chin area......BUT he didnt think any more needed to be taken. Double YYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAA
    We were so pleased with these results. I realise that DH is not out of the woods, and will need to be monitored 3 monthly for the next year. In fact i have requested a full body check. This is going to happen in two weeks. And also the other cancerous growth on his temple will be taken out. The problem with this other one, a basal cell carcinoma, is they will excise it, then check under the microscope, and if the margins aren't clear, they will excise a wee bit more, and check under the microscope, and if the margins arent clear etc etc etc. we have been told to expect to spend the day in and around the specialists rooms.
    But for today - the best newz. Thank you all for your support....... Now pass me another wine!!!!!!

                    • still making like it is the dead of winter down here. i saw our resident flock of spoonbills out for a paddle when i went for a walk. it depends which way the wind is blowing as to where they are hanging out. i also counted the 5th baby pukeko i have seen so far this season wandering around the swamp with its parents. jet boating and white water rafting tomorrow. i so hope it warms up!

                        We've had loads of baby pukekos roaming around up here. Also had (past tense) lots of ducklings too, until the pukekos saw to them. Never realised that went on. Just always felt sorry for what seemed quite stupid birds always getting run over, don't feel so bad now I know that it may have saved a few ducklings.

                        • our pukeko only seem to have one or two chicks. they are vicious birds and ours can fly. seemingly better every year. ducklings depending on what species they are dont really belong here. mallards that is. paradise ducks are native and actually a type of goose. the big ones go the other one's ducklings sometimes too. it is bird eat bird out there.

                          • Guys guys guys- thiank you so much for all your wonderful words. Yes it would have to be the best christmas pressie that i will have this year. And i know that he is not out of the woods. These buggars can pop up all ovher the body. So its great that he will be checked three monthly for the next year. And also getting this mohs surgery in two weeks will make me feel alot better once done.
                            But good newz - i will take it.
                            Its interesting i really thought that DH would take a long time to scrap up out of his wee hole that he created, but that afternoon he was the happiest camper on the block, and continued to be. I let him drive yesterday as he had stopped the lorazepam, and hes up there in the office now like dicky in the middle!!!!!!!
                            However i have booked him in to the Doctors tomorrow to review his other meds, just to see if we can make him a happier man - all the time!!!!!!
                            I also need some help. I noticed about a year ago that when i do anything physical, like heavy lifting, mowing lawns, even driving, i tense up, and often cannot relax at night. I have tried magnesium on and off, and i do think that helps, althou am not sure. I don't want the doctor prescribing me anti-anxiety drugs, but i need to get on top of this.
                            I am adamant that its all related to my weight gain, achey body, general run down feelings. I had two thyoflex tests done a while ago, (6 wks apart) and the naturopath said my thyroid was way under-functioning, however she was convinced it was due to my adrenal, not thyroid. So i don't want to keep paying hundreds of dollars for a tincture that doesn't seem to work ?????????
                            HELP..............

                            • Hi Gwamma - that's awesome news! I've been away, so not using internet minutes to post, but I did keep checking back and was doing a little happy dance in the tiniest hotel room I've ever seen .

                              About your physical issues - they're similar to the ones I've been working on, and the message I've had from my doctor can be boiled down to a few key things. I don't know if they're useful to you, but here goes . . .
                              • Take mega doses of vitamin B
                              • Take magnesium
                              • Eat significant amounts of protein regularly (1.5 to 1.8 grams per kilo of your actual weight - I'm trying for 150g a day)
                              • Don't under any circumstances eat wheat - it depletes vit B and you need it


                              Gotta go - the comp is nearly flat!!

                              • Hi hi, G! And big squishy hugs because you need them.

                                I agree with Jac - lots of that awesome NZ beef you all have, much lamb or mutton, and start sucking down egg yolks. I've been taking a B complex supplement for years and it's the only vitamin I truly notice in energy when I stop taking it or run out. D3 is also good for mood if you're not getting as much sun as you'd like.
