  •  Oh, ear! (6+ / 0-)

    I want to {{{{{{{ear}}}}}}}} again IRL!

    BTW, I am currently undergoing radiation treatment for recently diagnosed (and very early) breast cancer myself. I'm going be fine. I want you fine, too.

    •  Oh, sidnora, I am sorry to hear (5+ / 0-)

      that.  If you would like to be on the quilt list, please let me know.

      You can order Pootie Pads here until the website is back up. Pooties love them!

      •  {{{{{{{{Sara}}}}}}}}} my dear! (6+ / 0-)

        That is so kind of you! But I am going to turn you down, for now. I am sure there are others who have much greater need than I, and you have a full schedule.

        As I mentioned to ear just below, I got an extremely early diagnosis and just about the best prognosis I could ask for. Treatment has been more annoying than I anticipated, but much of that is due to decisions I made myself. In any case, the worst is behind me, and I'll be finished soon.

        This may sound weird, but I feel very lucky, especially when I see what other some people here are going through. So, I'll stick with my pootie pads for now (and they are well-used, I should send you a pic).

    •  Oh no! (6+ / 0-)

      This one in eight sisterhood just sucks. I don't want you to worry: there were some unnecessary treatment f-ups...it really has more to do with my underlying health getting messed up. Boobies are okay right now. I'm sure you will be FINE!!!

      Take it easy during radiation. Are you doing a thorough regimen to protect your skin? I owe Alma a kosmail on what I did to safeguard my supersensitive skin...I'd be happy to copy you the same info.

      Hang in there!

      Love,
      ear

      Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.

      •  I was going to say that myself - (5+ / 0-)

        It sucks that I know so many women who've been through this already. But I have to admit that the reason I didn't immediately devolve to a pile of quivering jelly when I got my dx is that I know so many women who've been through this already. Not only because of how they handled their treatment and its after effects, but because they are fine.

        And I am sure we both will be fine, too. Please don't spend even a second worrying about me. I got just about the best prognosis possible, short of never having had bc to begin with. My focus is getting through treatment, and once that's done I ain't lookin' back. Aquaphor and Aloe Vera gel, mmm good!

        I'm so sorry to hear that you are suffering unnecessarily. I hope this is only a temporary problem, and one that will soon resolve.I'm really glad your boobies are good. And you come to NN next year.

    •  Dear sidnora~! (4+ / 0-)

      I am sorry to hear that you have this diagnosis to deal with all the same. And I hope that even these relatively simple treatments proceed easily, without complication, and that they become a dim memory very quickly. Huggggs!
