Put a fork in me, I'm done

Well, not yet. But I'm off to have my liver biopsy now. I should not have googled this, not for one damn second. Because this is what I found:

Liver, Liver, it makes me shiver,

It makes my little brother want to quiver.

It's wet and it's slimy,

It's gross and it's grimy,

I hate it so much I cry rivers

A nutritionist once told me the liver is the mother of all organs and like any family, when the mother is unhappy, NO ONE IS HAPPY. I am waiting to hear how things go. I hope it is not going to be painful. Have a good, biopsy and may it lead to good news and a healthier life.

robin andrea said...

Thinking of you today, divajood. I hope it's all good news.

Pursey Tuttweiler said...

I will quiver and shiver 'til I hear more about your liver. I am glad you will get an answer and your treatments will begin soon. You are very, very brave.

Sewmouse said...

Good luck, Hun. *hugs*

The Good Juju is onthe way

Coffee Messiah said...

Positve thoughts your way! ; )

Traveling Man said...

I too, am keeping a good thought for you today.

May you be well.

I too have experienced a biopsy for the prostate gland, It turned out negative, which is good news. I experienced my first Melanoma when I was in my thirties, Too much sun. I am now seventy and still truckin.

Stay in the now and good news will surely follow.

Cheers...G :

sumo said...

Keep your chin up...and don't think about that lily-liver!

pekka said...

My olde, Norse, fire dance should help your situation. I will be doing it till the house burns down.

Pursey Tuttweiler said...

An old Norse fire dance? How interesting.

How do you feel?

DivaJood said...

Well, thank you one and all.

PCMary, the liver is one serious mother, that's for sure. You made me laugh.

Robin Andrea, thank you. It was boring, and I left my Sudoku book at home.

Pursey, you're a poet, and you just don't know it, but your keyboard show it.

Sewmouse, thanks hun!

Coffee Messiah, thank you. All I wanted was a nice, serious latte all day.

Traveling Man, thank you.

Geezer, thank you for stopping by. This wasn't for cancer, it's for a "condition" that is hereditary and treated with synthetic bear bile. Yuk.

Thorne, meet Pursey. You're poets, and you just don't know its. Thanks! BTW, they gave me drugs - I miss drugs. Then the doc said something that made me laugh, it was great.

Sumo, for a second I thought it said keep your chins up, and that made me laugh.

Pekka, does your Norse Fire Dance use the Talking Heads song, Burning Down The House?

Pursey, I feel with my hands... I'm sore, but going to work now.

Donnie McDaniel said...

Problems with the liver,
It makes me shiver,
What a pain, it's just so rude,
I wish the best for DivaJood!

P.S. Bush Sucks!


Pursey Tuttweiler said...

You jokester. You must be okay to crack a funny like that, but I bet you would crack funnies like that on your death bead, so I am confused now. Hmmmm.

I see Donnie is a poet now too. What next?

sumo said...

Details Missy! We want to know that you are okay! And Donnie...that was really cool what you wrote.

DivaJood said...

Donnie, you're also a poet and you don't know it, so don't blow it.

Pursey, I would crack funnies on my death bed, because it's better than being bored.

Sumo, I'm really okayish, see post above.

Thinking good thoughts--sending good vibes! How did it turn out?

The Fat Lady Sings said...

Ew uck! I hate biopsies of anything. But it will be OK. Fingers crossed and prayers offered, my dear.

Lulu Maude said...

Isn't it great to feel all the love that cyberspace has to offer? I add my own to the above, Diva Jood. Not to mention the prayers of a true reprobate.

Lulu Maude said...

p.s. the liver resembles a jockey cap, doesn't it?

Ride 'em!

Moe Berg said...

Hang in there, Jood! If we're going to buy the Cubs, you'll have to be able to give 110% while paradoxically staying within yourself.

BTW, are they really going to treat you with bear bile? How is that administered? Pills? Drops? Injections? Something gooey and smelly you have to squeeze out of a tube? Hope it's not too disgusting!

HelenWheels said...

Best of luck, DivaJood! I'm sorry I haven't been around. I hope all goes well. Take care!!

DivaJood said...

Kvatch, I heard the doctor sauteed it up with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

TFLS, the procedure was not bad, they gave me drugs which is the only time I can legally get high, and while I am a little sore (normal) it's all manageable. I'm very cranky, though.

Lulu Maude, I appreciate the prayers and good wishes, which really do work! And yes, the love in cyberspace is amazing. But the jockey cap comment made me just snort hot tea through my nose.

Moe Berg, I'm wondering if we can SELL the Cubs as soon as we buy them. And yes, it is going to be treated with synthetic bear bile, in the form of horse pills. It's all mammal, all the time.

Helen, we need to get Alicia and do a lunch. So there.
