I lost my brother to pancreatic cancer and my father to lung cancer, so take what I say next however you want.

This is not the place for these stories.
But while on crutches, we were able to conceive and in 2009 we had our son. Moral of the story is you can't get your wife pregnant if you aren't in the same bed at the same time.
This part made me giggle, you have a good attitude. :)

My hubby got into a very minor accident with his motorcycle and it reminds me of what you wrote in your post.

He had just gotten his motorcycle permit, took too wide of a slow motion turn and scr-aped the bike against the guard rail, and didn't realize it at first but broke his leg in 3 places, not a "good" break.. kind of a jagged diagonal break across the leg bone.

He had a titanium rod put in through the lower part of his leg via the knee. A plate on the side of your ankle where that bump is near your foot (yeah I know zero about anatomical terms). Plenty of screws and such on the xray.

He ended up with chronic pain near his knee. They operated again and took some screws out.

Pain persisted in the knee area and also his foot where the smaller plate is. He finally had all hardware removed including the rod and is doing alot better. Makes you feel fortunate when you are healthy.

Little off topic, your avatar has this motherly vibe to it, I like it :)

you may be knew to the forums


It's "new", and I'm not. Been around for years. I'm what they called a "CSF Regular", even though I never cared for that term.

If you think Sackmagraph is trolling, then don't comment. It's a nice supportive thread, for not only him, but others who are suffeing too. It only takes one fly in the ointment. Don't let it be you.
Wishing the OP and others dealing with cancer good vibes and positive developments in their lives. I lost my father to lung cancer and my grandfather to leukemia. WoW has helped me deal with the grief of both losses, and I am very sensitive about others who face those types of difficulties.

Life is really very short. It's so important to be kind to others so that our time here is rich and life-affirming.

I hadn't realized that was the vibe I was going for until you mentioned that...

Sorry for the little derail away from the topic.

Side Note: After 5 years I still can't figure out how she manages to be so blasted positive.... not to mention still being a workaholic. =/


Because if you're not positive it will eat you up. I'm over 50 and my guildies and WoW friends say I'm silly. Yep I have to be, because if you let the depression get a hold of you it won't let go. Give your Mom-in-law a hug.

I refused to talk about it for years. Now I do....rarely.

((hugs)) to all my fighting buddies out there.

he'll likely have pain in and around his knee for the rest of his life
I put my bike on the ground while wearing slacks(ouch), shredded my knee, drove the bike to hospital, that was years ago... I still feel it
My father died from cancer, and I was just recently discovered a tumor that turned out to be benign. Though I'm grateful, it was an incredible eye-opening experience and I can only offer my most profound support to everyone who has to deal with this. Hugs and support people.
I have cancer as well. It is not fatal but i am living off of disability because of it. I play Wow all the time and it takes my mind off of it very well. I play healer classes and people complain when i ask them for a pause then they feel bad when i tell them why. I hope you get over yours, maybe they will find a treatment for it, never give up, i have been told since i was 5 yrs old that i won't live for longer than a few years and i am 34 now. I hope for the best for you.
Sorry about your condition, but this is the wow forums, I'm sure you can find plenty of cancer support forums which would be more appropriate for this discussion.
Cancer is no fun at all. Albeit I don't have it myself, I heard chemo is like living death and VERY painful. I love how you're still alive and fighting.

((hugs))

I hope all goes well for you.
Even though I haven't dealt with cancer personally. I've had family who had it, my uncle which died from lung cancer in 1996 and now my stepfather who is in a comatose state and has 48 hours to live. It's hard seeing this illness eat away at a loved one or at ones self.

My prayers go out to everyone.

((Hugs everyone))
