I hope your girlfriend is doing okay too ...xo
CM3 I hope your Lily is doing well And my girlfriend got a little time for herself with me puppy sitting!

Mistletoe, thank you, Lily is doing much much better today and last night. I think we're over the hill. It definitely makes me want my next dog to be a boy simply because I hear the surgery isn't as invasive. And a very happy pines day to you!

Still waiting on word about my short term disability, I guess it is better than nothing at this point.

Have a good day!
Xmas, I'm sure the Doc will give you a pat on the back just for being so awesome. Who cares if you've maybe been on your feet a little too much. Tell him, you have a Camel at the Pines you gotta compete with!

Good morning all, happy Pines day. It was a chilly one here in Denver this morning. Have some catching up to do this morning because I was off yesterday with Lily. Well I have my PB and K here(k stands for Koffee in this situation) to get me through the morning. I should probably get back to work. Have a wonderful Wednesday all and we'll see you soon!

Good morning, everyone! I slept in a little bit today.

It is snowing a bunch out there. I missed a class on Monday so I have to go today, not looking forward to driving in this.

I thought my mom would be better but she is still in a major fog. Her blood test came back showing that she has a slightly overactive thyroid (which is odd since she had half removed and it would normally be underactive) but there is nothing to be concerned about from the test and nothing that he can do for her. I just wish she'd start feeling better because yesterday she said was her worst day of all.

Well, I have to type a paper and start getting ready. See you all at the Pines!

The reconstruction will take place pretty much at the same time, well, just a little after the mastectomies. My last day of school for this school year will be February 28. Since this process of chemo and reconstruction will take quite a while, I may have to work until December 2012 after all. Darn it!!! But I need the insurance! I hope everyone has a great day. CAH and SIT, you guys have SO MUCH to be proud of!!! Like I said, I wish your son had been in my class!!!
Seawaters, take care and please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers!

Thanks for your kind words regarding my son. That goes for everyone and their well wishes! Thanks again! =)
