So Much To Do, So Little Time



Geez, am I behind in life or what? I haven’t sent out a Christmas card, made a cookie or wrapped a present. I wouldn’t have any lights on my house if SCM hadn’t been ambitious and skilled at ladder balancing on rain soaked soil and begonias.


However, I have almost completed my shopping. This is no great feat as I am a shopaholic and buying things for people year round is a hobby of mine. I just have to slap a bow upon them and voila, greetings of the season.

I did get some bad news recently. A mass was discovered on my kidney several months ago which required test upon test upon test. I was hoping it could be removed laproscopically but that is not to be. In order to remove the mass, they need to take my entire kidney. I am honored that I have been offered so many vital organs that I could sell kidneys on ebay and pay for the surgery twice over. A good friend allows you to bitch about your BF being an asshole. A great friend offers to have a huge scar across their back for the rest of their life. Fortunately, I explained that my other kidney is fine and I probably won’t be taking them up on their offer. How do you properly thank someone for something like that though?  A fruit basket doesn't quite cut it.
In an effort to further procrastinate I am going to get a third opinion. Yes, I am in denial but I was so hoping that the surgery would be an easy one and removing the entire fucker is a lot more complicated and takes a huge recovery period. The good news is I will get to blog more. The bad news is I will be bored and have nothing to say.

I am really not looking for sympathy and have been telling people who say they are “praying for me” to pick something a little more worthy to spend their G-d merits. Whatever happens I am not going to be letting a surgeon near me with a sharp object until next year. He’ll just have to pay for his kid's Zhu Zhu pets without my help.

Off to wrap. Or nap. Decisions decisions.

Hope the 3rd opinion requires less stress and recovery time. Whatta bummer.

Hope you have a great weekend. I vote for the nap! That is what I will be doing in approximately 25 minutes.

I won’t say that I will pray for you; don’t think mine works anyway…Obama is still alive.

But I do hate that you are having to go through this and I wish you good luck with what ever decision you make.

I hope another opinion offers you more choices. Sorry you're having to deal with this! :-(

How about this: here's hoping SCM comes through as well for you as you did for him.

Naaa, bo, lets hope he stays the hell away from me and not annoy me too much. If I am going to hope, I'd like to be reasonable about it. LOL

Any type of surgery sucks! Hope you can avoid it.

Lets hope the third option is a charm...or something like that. I'm sure this is really weighing on your mind. I know everything will turn out just fine.

Thanks VM. If I had to get a tumor in any part of my body, this is a good place. They just take the thing and it's over. A good friend of mine just went through a lumpectomy for breast cancer and she had the chemo, lymph node removal and radiation. Now THAT is tough. I have no reason to feel bad for myself and won't. It is just the hassle of the thing that is annoying.
