Default Pootie's Surgery

Hi everyone, as some of you may already know and others of you may have gathered from our conversations in the chat box, Pootie (Donna) is very seriously ill. She suffers from a heart disorder and was recently diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. She is scheduled for outpatient surgery on Thursday, April 14th. I hope you will join me in wishing her a speedy recovery.


Good luck with your surgery, Pootie. I hope you are feeling better soon. Love ya, Lily

I hope your surgery goes as planned and you have a routine, speedy recovery. Rest all you want and don't let anyone tell you to get busy too soon. (Unless it's your doctor, of course.)

I'm lurking around, and read about Pootie's surgery, and wanted to tell her that I will keep her in my prayers, that the surgery will go well and her recovery will be quick. - Gail

Poots, my big brother in Wisconsin just underwent radiation, chemo and surgery in the past 6 months, but now he's doin' okey-dokey. (colloquial Wisconsinism). I know everything's gonna be just fine with you, too.

Smile Thank You All!!

Thank you all so very much for your kind thoughts and words.

It does mean alot and I am grateful for your support.

I'm nervous, but otherwise doing okay.

I will of course be back as soon as I can.

Everyone please take care. And pleasant solving.

(Lily: Thanks hon. You're a good pal!)

PSA: To all the women on site...please get checked by your doctors. Get a pap test done every six months if you are over forty.
Sometimes the test wont find ovarian cancer however, it can alert the doctor to any abnormalities.
I believe in the US you have something called Well visits? Even if you feel ok, it never hurts to see your doctor.
And if you are experiencing any pain, in the groin, stomach and lower back, let your docs know.
Unfortunately its too late for me. We take care of all the people in our lives...take the time to care of yourself, ladies.
Thanks for letting me say this. I hope it helps someone.

Dear Donna,

Both Barb and I were stunned to learn of your situation. We are very sad about what is going on with you, and also how you were treated so brutally by someone who supposedly cared for you.

You are in our thoughts and sincerely hope that you stick around for many more championship flags as a cryptogram supremo champ.

With love from us both!
