I can't recall the details, but saw that Susan asked in the thread from Bev about the MRI.  Who remembers how that got started? 
I know it means that we hope all tumors, lumps and spots turn out to be a false alarm, just a big ol' nothing.
So that our new friends don't think we're totally crazy, can anyone provide the background?

I think it started with Joannie retelling a story about a friend. I don't remember the details either, but you made me smile to think of our dear Susan and Joannie!

I knew someone would have to ask! And for the life of me, I can't remember whole story, either. A friend of hers was having intestinal problems...had tests done, and was told she had a fast-growing tumor. When they went to take it out, it turned out to be a piece of a pork chop bone that had become lodged and gotten infected. Not a tumor at all. Something like that.

We need someone like Mikki or Jo-Ann to tell it.

Found this on the web and thought it was too funny. The resemblance in the stories is uncanny:

i heard this story about this fat woman
who sat naked on a pork chop bone once

and didn’t notice when it lodged itself
among her folds of fat. years later,

when she felt a sharp pain, and the doctors
couldn’t figure out what it was, opened

her up and found the pork chop, and realized
that her skin just eventually grew over it.

Lori:  Thanks for posting this question. Everytime I would read about the "pork chop bone" I would sit here and try and figure out what the heck you all were referring to. For the life of me I could not come up with anything that was connected with bc. rofl At least I know that I'm not totally nuts now. Thanks again!

Nope you are not nuts. We have had some crazy goofy stories over the years. The pork chop bone was one we all got a chuckle from and remembered. So when you read someone is wishing for a pork chop bone.... it is kind of like wishing for B-9. Hugs MK
