A Woo Update Part Deux


I'm not really sure what was last said so very long ago. I remember telling you all that my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and refusing treatment back in 2010. Not too long after that she told me that she was cured. I didn't believe her because all she said she did was eat cottage cheese, pineapple and flaxseed oil? I thought that maybe there was an error on the doctor's part and maybe she never had it to begin with. She got mad at me for just asking if she had to have more mammograms than just a yearly one. Wasn't spoken about again until this year. We were out to eat for DH's birthday in March when it resurfaced. She has stage 4 breast cancer. She claims that the original discovery did go away but new stuff showed up and she had been hiding it from everyone including her husband. I'm not sure what I believe. She's let it go so long that surgery isn't an option. She's seeing a naturopath. Still refusing chemo because she doesn't want to lose her hair. She has done some radiation. Some more stuff cleared up but more has surfaced. It is now visible in her neck area. It's really only a matter of time. I'm okay. My mother has rarely done anything right in her life so why should I expect anything now? I was more mad that she kept it from us as it is part of our medical history. As a matter of fact they are monitoring me for breast cancer. What they found is benign right now. However, I remember my mom having some when she was younger too. 

If you don't know we bought a house. We moved in around the 4th of July last year. Nice to be stable and do what we want because it's ours smile

We just got our cat in February. It's the first pet we've had as a couple with the exception of the fish. I had a couple of ferrets when we got together but gave them away when we got an apartment together.

The Girl is married. She married younger and he actually just graduated prior to the wedding. We don't hate him but we don't like him. He's too immature and has no business being married. Their life is so dramatic.

My MIL is doing well. Still traveling to Arizona in the winter. Our house is a ranch and we got her a room so she can come and go as she pleases.

For the record, I didn't get Christmas cards done last year and I didn't send any out *gasp* I really haven't got back in full swing of making my usual cards since the move.

I don't know if people are still in touch around here or everyone has gone their separate ways. I'm sorry I left. It's hard to see this place like this cry

I have an iPhone with unlimited text if anyone wants my number- just message me. My phone is almost always on me. I still have the same email. Still on Twitter. I lurk a lot. I'm not truly on Facebook but I did sign up under a fictitious name so I could play a game. My name is still Woo though lol. I can try and learn FB if that is where you're at.

I hope you are all well.

Thanks for the update Woo! I see your posts on Tumblr all the time (sucks that you can't post at work anymore though). I must confess, even though so many people have told me I need to, I have yet to see Merlin. It's on my to-watch list though. I'm also at the mercy of Netflix when it comes to Doctor Who, so I'm a season behind. I stopped following a lot of fan Tumblrs because there were too many spoilers. I also watched the first 3 seasons of Supernatural, but haven't been able to make it through the 4th.

You know me, I'm everywhere, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, G+, etc. Feel free to add me. I think you know what to look for: MzHartz

Hey Woo, thanks for the update.  For the most part things sound like they're going pretty well for you, with the obvious expection of your Mom's situation.  Hopefully her story is true, it would be so sad if it isn't.  Breast cancer when caught early is so treatable these days.

I bet having a house is a nice change for you.  I know your previous rentals never worked out very well.  You always seemed to have an issue of water following you everywhere you went!  smile

As for the forum, I know, it's hard to imagine that the bottom thread is still dated December 31, 2012.  At our peak the first page would all be from the current day.  I'm obviously as big of an offender as anyone though.  I migrated almost exclusively to Facebook.  I've made attempts to come back here on a more regular basis, but I always feel out of synch.  The bulk of the activity seems to happen in the morning when I'm sleeping and when I show up around 2 or so there's nobody around anymore.

I'll message you my cell and get yours.  That's actually the primary way I tend to stay in touch with several people including Fuzzy & Web.

Thanks for the updates!

Sorry about your mom though, that is sad news.

I don't live on the forum as much as I use to, but I still come around most every work day. Seems like I react to what's here. If it's busy, I come back more.

With just the few of us left here, I've often thought that we should just move the group to FaceBook and do our daily thing there . . . but it still feels different here. Plus, I can complain about Mrs Web here and she won't know it.

 I must admit, I complain more on here where I know few people are likely to see it.

Although if we had a closed group on Facebook, no one could see anything there either, could they?

Mz, I think I have you where I'm at with the exception of FB. I can add you there but I am clueless about the site. At least my name is Woo there so you should know it's me smile Merlin kinda surpassed Supernatural for me. It's not like the greatest thing written but it just makes me happy. It helps when I just love the cast. Doctor Who I'm not fully caught up with but I do watch by other means Supernatural I'm sad to say that I wish it wouldn't have been renewed. I'm just ready for it to end. I think I was good through season 5 or 6. I still enjoyed it and would hurry to watch. Currently the season ends tomorrow and that will put me 3 episodes behind. hmm

Thanks for sharing Woo. Glad things are well.

You guys know me. I am the last to adopt and understand a lot of technology. I simply don't take the time to learn it. Shame on me. After I win the big lottery jackpot this week then I'll take some time to get acquainted.

 Sadly the water issue was still in play sorta. There was a huge delay in us finallizing the house deal because it needed a new septic system. They didn't tell us and our home inspector got ill and flushed the toilet. It all backed up into the house! But it's a brand new system. Water still is an issue and in bad quality. We go through filters like mad.

Ok I 'll check me messages in a minute smile

 lol I complain everywhere as DH is barely online. he does have FB but he barely gets through that. I refuse to have a family one as they will all drive me mad. if we move to Fb someone will have to hold me hand as I haven't bothered to learn.

 Oh I can see my Tumblr dash minus anything uploaded to tumblr like music or reaction gifs. I can't go directly to your page because it's blocked. I can post though. I shouldn't but I do. I get so bored. I usually save pages to Pocket that I want to fully see and look on my phone lol

There is a certain security of this forum. Which is weird because anyone could view it if they happened upon it.

But it almost feels like our little club. Like a tree-house or something. Saying something on Facebook just seems like it puts it all out there for everyone, but here I feel like I'm really keeping it "in the family" kind of.

Plus I still do think it's neat that someone from long ago could stop by at any time and say hello (assuming they haven't forgotten their log-in information.

But only FaceBook friends get to see my photo-a-day posts. How does anyone not in that list get by without them?

JR, not that I ever experienced it, but losing a password is not all that crazy...just a cry for attention.

 So many numbers, so little time. I guess letters would confuse you.

 Fuzzy, "I" don't even know what I'm thinking anymore.  So I may put your number on speed dial, just to help me with the big decisions...like lucky charms or frosted flakes

First, you don't get to think anymore because you goy married. Thinking will probably het you into trouble.

Second, always go with the lucky charms.

I guess this would be another Woo update but a small one. I went back to this thread as this is where I talked about my Mom's cancer. 

She had started to have complications in September. We believe the radiation basically fried her. She had a couple day hospital stay where they discovered her lungs had filled up. She was drained and then released shortly after. 2 weeks later we were back again. She went in on Sept 28th after some convincing. I actually thought that she wasn't going to make the day. She got oxygen and she got drained again. She had better days but never truly recovered. In the end there was little they could do for her. Once the radiation was stopped after her first hospital stint, the cancer ran like wildfire. It got into her bone marrow and she was even too weak for the official test for that. Here lungs also kept refilling faster. They had talked about a chest tube but it never happened. They decided to stop all treatment and we were setting up hospice. The cancer took her on the morning of Oct 3rd. She was scheduled to come home that day but never made it. I think that was actually for the best as I don't know how her husband would have handled that happening at home. She was cremated and we had a memorial on the 6th. Everything went pretty well. I thought about shooting a text to someone here sometimes but then I would forget or I just didn't feel up to it. I deal with a lot of things internally. I guess I'm a better listener than I am a communicator. I'm barely online. I can't get over the exhaustion and it's a challenge to do much. On Saturday we're supposed to do thank you notes and go through some of her things. If it were up to me we would be going at a slower pace. I just feel overwhelmed. Just setting up plans to do this has added extra stress/heaviness back. Overall everyone is doing pretty well. Ok that's all I have in me right now.

I'm so sorry to hear that, Woo. Even if the rest of the family wants to go fast, don't push yourself. You don't need to be making yourself sick from being too stressed out.

I know you don't feel like it, but I would suggest some Tumblr time. Once you start looking through pretty pictures, you'll feel a little better, if only because you took some time out for yourself.
