Incompetent doctors didn't remove all my aunts cancer and they knew after the ct scan and before her treatment (after the surgery), but didn't tell her.

Oh my god, LW. That's truly awful. Why the fork wouldn't they have told her?

I had my biopsy today. The doctor had to stop at one point because the lidocaine wasn't working and I could feel the needle. He tried to keep going (with my permission), but stopped when I started sobbing because the pain was so bad. He pumped in a bunch more lidocane, and eventually he got what he needed. It still wasn't as bad as the one I had 3.5 years ago, which was hands down the most physically painful experience of my life. I'll get the results when I see my endocrinologist next Wednesday. Keep your paws crossed, PPK.

Claws crossed too!

It's in lymph nodes they didn't remove. It sounds like an arrogant doctor who only tells patients what he thinks they should know. I'm scared, but it sounds like this was factored into her treatment. I don't have enough information yet.

I went to this big fancy thing tonight, because I was supposed to network with someone. I hated the amount of crowd and the person I was supposed to connect with refused to see me as equal. She really just wanted to sell me things and not accept that I have been doing this a long time.
I am so tired of that with in the community this is related to. They are all so paranoid that we are going to steal or over shadow.

Kind of all of a sudden getting nervous belly over so many things. Like, ugh I-kinda-want-to-barf-because-of-feelings belly. There's just so many things right now in my life I have to deal with! I was put on an antibiotic for this tonsilitis that says might cause diarrhea (it does), I get told today by the ENT doc that they want me on a different antibiotic, I pick up said different one today and wait, guess what, it's the exact same one, I get told by my vet that "there were no signs of parasites" in my dog's fecal sample, um, but then why are there worms in it every time she poops? Answer "well could be tapeworm, you'll have to bring in another fecal sample", I have to finish a bookshelf I've been neglecting to make because it's cold in the garage, I made a huge mess of fir needles all over my carpet I have to either vacuum or be okay with my lady friend seeing, I keep piling on different things to my list of 'life-enriching' goals, which in theory I'm fine with setting aside but some of them are kinda time sensitive and I will probably regret neglecting them much longer, guilty that I accomplished nothing except go to the doctor today, anddddd top it off I think I got my lady friend sick and if she doesn't kick it, it's like the worst timing for her work situation.

Thanks, everyone! I'll definitely keep you all updated.

Josh, I'm pretty sure I did, but it would sure explain a lot if I didn't get any lidocaine the first biopsy. The really bad pass felt just like what I remember the first time, so maybe I just didn't have enough then either. I went in yesterday fully prepared to speak up the second I couldn't take it anymore, and I made sure they knew that my last biopsy had been really bad. Once the doctor loaded me up more, I could feel the pressure, but not the pain, which was totally doable. He did have to inject more closer to the skin, since that's where I really felt it most.

There was one kind of good thing, though. When they did the nodes on my left side, I was able to see the ultrasound monitor and watch what they were doing. So cool. Somehow seeing it happen made it way easier to not just focus solely on the pain. Moments like that always have me wishing I could go back to school for nursing or medicine. Money is really the only thing holding me back.

Bruce may have had a seizure this morning.

He was fine before breakfast but then I heard a commotion from his enclosure and went to check, finding him lying on his side, twitching. I took him out so that Spike didn't get more frightened and he's now being kept in at the vets for observation. The vet thinks that if he did have a seizure it could be connected to his heart condition, and maybe not enough blood was getting to his brain. I've to call them in about an hour to find out how he is.

Please have good thoughts for the little chap.

I just spoke to the vet. She said that he is slightly stabilized and is eating but keeps falling on his side and twitching. She recommends to take him home and keep him warm, comfortable and medicated but if he hasn't improved in the next 24-48 hours to consider saying goodbye. That'll be really hard, he's Mr8's favourite boy.

We are seriously snowed in here. Vyapti took my car into work and accidentally left the lights on. So the battery is dead. Les Schwab told him it was at least five hours before they could even think about getting any one out there. I am not sure how he is going to get home and I know he doesn't have a proper coat. I am trying not to be worried sick. But I am.

I hope Vypati will be ok! The weather you've been having sounds crazy. We only just got properly cold weather yesterday.


I get the feeling that we're losing Bruce. He's not eating of his own volition, besides a couple of nibbles of hay every now and then.

Bad day at work then one of the dogs I was walking got attacked by another dog that has been at the shelter forever. The other dog was pulled from euthanization in another state before he came to the shelter. Now I'm terrified they are going to put him down.

I am most certainly in the throws of a cold.

I'm so sorry about Bruce, 8ball. Miracle recoveries do happen, so I will hope for one to happen shortly.

Our pipes are frozen. No laundry, possible flooding of the garage when we thaw.

Dress rehearsal was canceled due to the snowstorm. The concert is in less than a week! We need this rehearsal! (It was definitely the right choice to cancel it, given the weather, but DAMMIT, SNOW...WHYYYYY???)

My scapular accessory nerve was damaged during surgery 3 years ago, and today my shoulder blade is aching sooooooo much because of the dumb snow. I took 800 mg of ibuprofen, and it isn't doing a damn thing. I'm so grateful that this shiitake has mostly healed, because today is a harsh reminder of how much it once sucked.

12 hours sitting outside in 20-30 degree weather at my mom's antique fair booth, and there were so few customers we actually lost money on the space and truck rental. I am just barely beginning to feel my toes again. That forking sucked.

UGH I just waited forever at my coffee spot and got back to the office and they forking gave me a dairy latte. UGH. I go there multiple times a week, it's the same barista every time. Come on, dude. It's too cold to go outside and get a new one, plus I already threw the dairy one out :(

I was meant to present the results of my research on the group's biweekly teleconference this morning, but I panicked and froze and couldn't talk. And then spent the next half hour crying on my office floor behind my desk. Such a competent and grown up research scientist.
