Short Update

My first post-surgery biopsy results are in and it looks like I dodged a bullet … just. The cancer cells were merely using my thyroid as a staging area. An invasion of my lymphatic system was immanent – which has now been terminated with extreme prejudice. One or two cells may have escaped into the hills, but rest assured we will flush the little buggers out and nuke ‘em.

    Great news on the cancer cells! Glad to hear they have been (or will soon be) obliterated. My husband has had thyroid problems in the past, and recently started having trouble again. Must be something with thyroids right now 🙂

    That Google Chrome thing is weird – never heard of that before. I hope GC allows her to return to the land of the digital.

      Thanks Janna.

      . . . the truly perplexing thing is that it’s only in our house, and only that one URL.

      P.S. Get hubbs thyroid checked. It’s scary to think that if just a bit more time had passed I’d’ve been facing a far more serious prognosis.

    That is absolutely fantastic news 🙂


  3. The best news is that the buggers are gone!

    Purring loudly! 🙂


  5. Wonderful news! So glad to hear it!

    The internet can certainly be wonky at times, but no, have never had anything quite like that happen. 🙂

      … yes, it’s quite the mystery … Susiee and I are hoping to alchemicalise this into fame and fortune, or at least a spot on ‘Ellen’!

    Hooray for the great news!

    No idea what to do about Chrome’s problem.

    Great news!!!! When’s the cell nuking happening? I’ve had all manner of weird things happen with google – and I’ve never known how to fix them… 🙂


  8. Sometimes Chrome just gets its hate on. Great news about the cancer cells. Death to the little bastards!

    Dear Widdershins,
    Usually when that happens to me, it’s because a stray letter from the alphabet has attached itself to the link. If you can’t get the exact blog post, try for the regular .com address. That may work, then you can click on the link.
    Praise to God for your healing! Thank you, God.

    Congratulations on your great victory!
    May Google Crome also succumb to your might 🙂

    I use Goggle Crome too and your link to “Don’t be a Hippie” worked fine for me… Strange …
