I am continuing to do fine so far! And I'm very pleased with that. Not much pain or bleeding and very thankful I had surgery when I did--I know I'd have been very upset with myself if I had let it go. And glad the doctor paid attention--she said people my age just absolutely don't get this, not for another 15 years, and even then, it would have only been 1/200 chance of being cancerous (she said 1/100, but I'd also looked it up). She said she was shocked by how things turned out. But I think we're both relieved now.
I keep getting locked out of my gmail and blogger account (password has been the same forever), so I've got to run more extensive spyware and virus protects and get my husband to help with computer security; husband says its probably some malevolent software. This means prying the computer out of my hands when he gets a chance and not giving it back for a bit. Nothing really that I'm worried about being compromised but sick of it. We've had our credit card number taken before and charged up years back, and if this happens again, I think a better punishment than jailing someone is transferring all our debts to them, and I actually would propose it as a serious solution. I am mad and was madder last night. That's just wrong. I will be in the middle of writing an email (or a blog post yesterday), and I'll get logged out because someone has opened the account on another browser (not my spouse, not me in another window or using another browser). I know that's what's happened because I got the same error message I did when two of us at work would log into the same account at the same time (joint account for a shared project). And then the same password I've had forever won't work when I try to log back in. And I tell you, after the work I put into the blog post yesterday, which vanished into the ethers, except for a few sentences, I was ticked, ticked, ticked. If someone's been in my account for other reasons, they are in a lot of trouble and I am not.
Still unsure about Enbrel. I asked today, and it does not increase the risk of gyn cancers, just other cancers. I know other people say they're healthier on it because they have an overactive immune system that attacks everything. You should see me waffle when I have to make bigger life decisions!
Driving to the hospital today, I looked at every business we could as we passed and estimated that about half lacked disability parking at all (many small businesses, thirty minute drive) and about a third to a quarter were completely inaccessible. There's something to be said for new construction! I still don't think I could get into Starbuck's by the hospital (my parents gave us a gift certificate). There is one curb cut at the end of the lot, but there's a big concrete planter-trashcan by the Starbucks that I don't think I could steer around. There are other places I can get into, though. I have traveled to al ot of other cities and states and don't think this is atypical. In fact, it may be more accessible than other places, especially with a lot of new construction.
