Excellent. Wishing you and her all the best.

and day 2?

She returned to the house with pinkish cheeks, but it was gone by bedtime so I'm thinking it was just flushing from the heat. Tomorrow is the big push, 10 hours at Schlitterbahn. But she'll have her cowboy hat, which worked great on Day One, so at this point I'm more worried about how I can make sure Minifob gets his second/third sunscreen application when he is likely to be out of my hands all day.

Schlitterbahn report: Minifob has just the slightest twinge of pink under his eyes, Minifobette has no sunburn at all.

Me and Mr. Clod, on the other hand, both have mild sunburns. His covers his entire chest, shoulders, and back, and mine is just on my back--where he was the one to apply the sunscreen. Clearly there is something lacking in his technique. It's not bad though, the kind that will clear up in another day. My feet suffered far more, walking around barefoot all day on a mixture of scratchy pool bottoms and burning-hot concrete. Mr. Clod's FitBit said 18,000+ steps. It was a fun day, but too damn long.

Reminds me of a time my husband got his own back. Big white handprints outlined by a pretty good sunburn.

Glad the minifobs fared well!

Three-month follow-up and it seems there was a question on the CT scan after all. Bilateral adnexal masses, stable but persistent since the scan last October. So I get an ultrasound 'at my earliest convenience', because a history of breast cancer + bilateral masses + persistence beyond 12 weeks = high risk.

What are the odds? About 50%. But I may be in the good 50%. That's what I'll believe until they tell me otherwise.

Damn straight, there's no sense in worrying about shit that may not happen. That's like paying interest on money you didn't borrow.

glatt 08-12-2013 07:58 PM

I like your attitude.

Griff 08-13-2013 06:08 AM

Yeah, well done orthodoc, stay positive.

orthodoc 08-14-2013 01:38 PM

Not good news on the ultrasound this morning although it could be worse. Still I win a trip to the Gyne-Oncologist in Pittsburgh next Tuesday.

xoxoxoBruce 08-14-2013 01:41 PM

Pulling for a good outcome in Pittsburgh. :fingerx:

BigV 08-14-2013 01:48 PM

I'm rooting for you too!

glatt 08-14-2013 02:18 PM

I'm sorry Ortho.

orthodoc 08-14-2013 02:23 PM

Thanks, guys - it could still be all right, so I'll keep assuming that. This weekend I'm going to visit my oldest son in Arlington and just have a good time.

Clodfobble 08-14-2013 02:26 PM

I'll be thinking about you next week, ortho. Good luck with everything.
