Good news!
I still have fingers and toes crossed for your Mum.

Good to hear, Les. When they did my throat biopsy, they also removed my cancerous right tonsil. Just had the second (6mo) post chemo/radiation PET scan Tuesday and will get the results next Tuesday.

Great news Les. Did the cardiac surgeon do the lung dissection or was that done by a thoracic surgeon, regardless both groups are god gifted individuals, I've observed both in action, their amazing.

No pain at site and I've cut smoking down to 3-4 puffs a day. I do notice the craving if I don't wear a patch. The need for the patch is probably all in my head. Dr said that cutting down to only puffs was as good as quiting a 2 1/2 pack a day habit. Cheaper too.

I can remember when I used to think space travel would be fantastic, I am now of the opinion, that I'm much happier just riding my magic carpet and Jeeping as well.

But if you like action and suspense Gravity was very good for both.

Cheers !!!
I used to think the same, now any potential space trip would have to be in a Galaxy Class ship with my own private suite...

Cool Jeff!

"AS THE KIMONO OPENS". Has a soap opera ring to it.

I am saving comments and other tidbits from all the RVMs to help me design my monologue.

Actually, my secret is that I got a tiny puppy and I carry it with me in my man-purse and his name is George. (nononononononono!!!!)

(GC@CL)

However, if you replace one word in a movie title with the word bacon.....

Willy Wonka and the bacon factory.
Pride and bacon.
Bacon Abbey
Bacon wars
Edward bacon hands
Joan of bacon
Debbie doe bacon
Honey I shrunk the bacon
Desperately seeking bacon
O bacon where art thou
The sound of bacon[/QUOTE]

As the Bacon turns.

Way to go Dunner! When I quit (over 11 years ago) I was at 1 or 2 cigarettes a day for a few weeks. Then I could finally convince myself to let go, as I had the hard part conquered. Hardest thing my husband and I ever did, and he just stopped in January, was giving up the smoking.
Les your news is truly wonderful, as the fewer surgeries the better! That means fewer times of anesthesia, which is really hard on all us old folks. I hope she has a comfortable recovery.

Bacon....totally unhealthy. However, I must admit that the last few times I have cooked bacon, I have saved the fat. That is right, I have gone back to cooking the old fashioned way. Smear a spoon of bacon grease in the pan before frying anything, but not all bacon grease, I add other oil if the dish requires lots of grease. But the flavor is like gramma used to create. Fried taters with that smoky hint of bacon mmm. So bad yet so good!

About 30 years ago, we did it in the style of my gramma. She brought the "style" with her from Denmark.
There was always a small jar of bacon grease in the fridge.
A dollop in the green beans, baked beans, fried spuds, etc.
Having thoughts of reviving grammas style. She only lived to be 93.

For me it was a GREAT trade.
Had a giggle at this, mental image of DW meaning "dear wife" in forum speak instead of short for dishwasher. Wondering what size cabinet the "DW" needed! Another form of dishwasher. I know, I have a sick, twisted mutant mind.

Her Doctor is a heart and lung specialist. We researched him, he is a well respected physician. We feel pretty good about him.
