I am freaking out a bit?
I can't say more then what was in the news...but a "staff person" at work was diagnosed with swine flu....my opinion, it is a little more then that, but I will also say, it is now all around me YIKES?
IMO, we ALL should be taking tamiflu as a precaution....you know how the flu just spreads and you are infectious before you have symptoms...and because of the nature of what we do, it makes sense to me....but they are only giving it if you are symptomatic?
Hopefully it stops right in it's tracks...keep your fingers crossed?
At the moment, I am feeling slightly congested, but I think it is morning gunk that will resolve, lol...I don't feel flu-ish so I am trying not to overreact, lol?
Anyway...that is my "news" for the day?
Did you know...
...Woo hoo Marie on the tickets??
...that place looks like lots of fun??
...Helen, we've been hearing the same thing about the Swine Flu?
DID YOU KNOW??????
....swine flu is getting ridiculous here. They are doing stupid things like shutting down one grade of a school!
....it hasn't killed anywhere near the amount of people that the regular flu kills
....we aren't the State with the most cases
....it's funny because there is a friendly rivalry between Melbourne & Sydney & Melbourne has 90% of the cases so Sydney is laughing!!
....if you have been to Melbourne you & your family (even if they didn't go) have to quarrantine yourselves for 7 days!!
....I currently have a plain & simple cold
....it is funny to see people's reactions if you sneeze in the street though!!!
....not that I have been out much. I'm feeling miserable & stuffy!!!
....tomorrow is my ultrasound
....I'm getting a bit worried about it
....not looking forward to the full bladder again
....it takes the whole day to stop peeing!!!!
....apparently there may be an internal u/s aswell. What a joyful prospect!!!
....at least there's no needles, I'm feeling like a pin cushion!
....totally can't remember what else I was going to say
....I hope you are all enjoying your Summer, think of us in the cold!!!!
....I am anxiously awaiting your get together in Kansas so I can see pics!!
Just had to post a PISS me off moment.
The staff that is here for the last week got an email asking for someone to clean out the fridge on the last day.
Christol, I'm no stranger to the internal u/s. I had a LOT of Gyn stuff going on between the two kids when I was trying to get pg with Eloise.
It's just that no one has 'been there' in over 9 years!!! I had the hysterectomy when Eloise was born, so I have no cervix & so have had no yearly exams. And you all know my s-e-x history in the last 9 years!!!!
It will be a little strange to have something 'there' after all this time!! KWIM?
...Helen, I'll be thinking of you today ~ (((big hugs)))
...Christol, I'd be totally annoyed too?
...people are just
...Missi, glad the girls made it to CO even though Gerad's parents flaked?
...God they sound like Craig's parents?
...Funny how all of us have so many similarities?
...maybe that's why we all found and like each other so much, we're the norm in the field of crazy, rude and inconsistent, LOL?
...anyway...glad you aren't missing them yet?
DID YOU KNOW......?????
....here I am!!!
....I'm sorry Christol, I didn't get the results till after midnight your time!!
....so....onto the results....
....I'm not sure how I feel about them
....my right ovary is not too bad, there is a partially collapsed cyst there now that the radiologist wasn't bothered about
....he couldn't find my appendix, let alone a mass on it!!
....however, my LEFT ovary contains a "complex cystic structure" Basically there are several cysts within each other, expanding it quite far & definately causing pain
....he has suggested to the Dr that it be further investigated as a Cystadenoma, which is a tumour, but generally a benign one!!!!
