I really enjoyed the chat last night.  Thanks to everyone for treating this old granny (I really don't feel that old most days) with respect and caring.  I have learned so much on this forum but most of all feel the support you all give me and each other!
If you want to see my blog about my husband's cancer and see what I look like (yikes) check out He has lung cancer and his 18 month fight is paying off and he is doing pretty well.  Of course, it flared up my UC and relayed my knee surgery but cancer is much more life threatening and have to deal with that first.  My gastro doc says I can have the surgery ok now assuming I don't get worse!  I need two new knees but would be happy with one for now!
Thanks again!

Wow Elaine...nice to see you! You don't look like an old granny!..actually you look like a client of mine! I feel I know you already...;-)

I'm happy to hear Paul is doing well and has the all clear. He certainly has bounced back remarkably. A good thing to hear.

When is your surgery going to be?

Glad you enjoyed the chat.

Right knee replacement I HOPE will be right after our trip to Vegas in November.  Of course, depends on success of medication I am taking right now.

Thanks for your kind words!

I am not able to be on chat due to the fact that that is my late night at work and I come home and hit the bed - no company for my husband on Thursdays! However, I am glad that you guys enjoyed it and that you were good to Elaine! Hey Elaine, if they don't behave let me know LOL

This is truly a wonderful forum that has taught me and lent support and love. We are so blessed to have each other.

Elaine, I wouldn't have it any other way then for EVERYONE to be treated with dignity and respect. If you ever run across anyone that doesn't you just let me know ok?

I had a nice time last night even though I didn't get much chance to talk to you directly. I was quite surprised at the turnout!
