Hmm ... did they actually prove that it was Canadian geese that forced the plane into the Hudson?  And have you really seen maple leaf shaped snowflakes?  I think not.

I've never been to Canada so all I know about it comes from films like 'Canadian Bacon'; and all I know about Seattle I learned from 'Sleepless in Seattle'.  You can see I'm a highly educated and cultured woman!  But I do know that people from the USA travelling in Europe have taken to describing themselves as Canadians so that they get treated better.  Maybe things will change now?

Hope you're healing well and feeling 'chipper' as we say here in the UK.

Epsom...I have not been around for awhile so am not up to date with what has been going on with you, but I to am glad that your surgery is over and that yu sound very positive.

I kind of cringed when you made the comment about the grater!!  OUCH!  I had a hydro distention done to my bladder and there was alot of blood afterwards.  I have to have that done periodically.

So take care, enjoy the pain meds...I'll be on them starting tues after my surgery.

Good luck on the outcome of the tests, everyone is rooting, and not just for the football game, but for YOU !  Shari

Like everyone else I love your 'bitching' and teasing, though I'm not sure the Canadians are so keen on you.

Visit any US/Canadian border cities (US side) and half the cars in parking lots and on the streets are from Canada.  It's true.  From our stores to our casinos.  Lucy

Epson,

So glad your surgery went better and you did not need a catheter, but that monthly stuff, i agree, men could not handle it!!

Well, Epson, I feel for you with the whole catheter business. They took mine out on Friday and sent me home from the hospital. I ended up back in the ER Saturday am after developing urinary retention overnight. Very painful and scary. Back home with a cath again, then over to the doctor to remove it today. All in all, I prefer no catheter, but not being able to pee was a drag as well.

Anyway, I'm recovering slowly here. Every night someone new brings a meal over; one of our congregants is sending her cleaning lady next week. She also gave me a sponge bath, and will come by tomorrow to do the same. My husband has been blown away by the support.

Hope all is well with everyone here. I'm not much for browsing I'm afraid. I hope Elise's leg heals soon.

I thought it was over, but it never is.  I went back to work on Monday and boy, let me tell you how sore my bladder is, ouch!

Every time I have to pee, that would be like every 45 minutes, I need to bit down on a bullet :o  It seem like this is a never ending nightmare with no light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm really sorry to hear that you're in so much pain, Epson.  I know it's bound to be painful after surgery, but could they not give you more pain relief so that you can at least pee without such agony?  What meds are you on right now?  I don't think 'bullet biting' can compete with good old morphine.

It must seem like a never ending nightmare but I hope it helps just a little bit to know that we are here with you, in all corners of the globe.

Take care, dear friend

ps have you tried peeing in the bath?  I don't mean as a routine thing (!) but at the moment to help with the pain?  I know it's not possible at work, or every 45 minutes, but in the evening at home it might help.  It's like the old joke about how you spell 'psychology' - with a silent 'p', as in 'bath'.

You are going back to work, Epson? I can barely sit up straight, much less pee, without making a plan of attack for the process.

Has the cheese grater effect cleared up some? A friend brought a casserole over today and said he had "just grated a little cheese over it" and I must have made quite a face because he said, "Oh no, you are not allergic to cheese or you?" To which I replied, "Never mind, cheese is fine, it was an unrelated thought." How could I explain.

Hang in there Epson

sounds like post child birth experiences i had with peeing and pain, what seems like an eternal ball of fire causing pain, all of a sudden eases of, drink plenty , i know you dont want to but drink, cranberry juice settles the acidity of the urine and might be a good idea to drink some of this for a while, also protects the urinary tract from infection ,it is intense pain, but it does ease all of a sudden, promise there is an end in sight x
