Thanks everyone!

Brenna: they took the packing out two days after the surgery and the splints two days ago.

Vanessa: That's about all I've been able to do is watch movies, so Harm and I have been watching all the Harry Potter movies we have.

I'm going to try to read today.

I am hoping my bad things stick with two and don't throw me a third.

I just got off the phone with my husband who is working on west coast with me and kids at home in the east. He hasn't been feeling right for a few weeks now and his co-workers had noticed some changes for which they expressed concern. He was home Labor Day weekend and I also felt like he wasn't himself. His co-workers persuaded him to see a doctor today and he discovered he's had a stroke (they are still running tests on him).

My recent mammogram showed an abnormality, and I have a biopsy scheduled next week. Good news is that radiologist thinks it is benign, but we need to confirm with the biopsy. I am same age my mother was when her breast cancer began, so it is disconcerting. I am not going to worry until I have something to worry about. At this point I am more concerned about my husband.

Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Very worrisome, Ludmilla. But I like your attitude. Half of the misery we suffer is over things that turn out to be not so awful after all.

Oh Ludmilla, that's a double whammy! :( At least you're both having treatment. Hope everything turns out okay for both of you!

Thinking of you, Ludmilla. It sounds like a mini-stroke so your husband should make a good recovery - hope so. And I hope your results are negative - the majority of lumps and bumps are benign.

More well(ness) wishes to add to all, Ludmilla. May all the doctors find you and your spouse to be a total bore.
