    Early this month I was hospitalized with jaundice and I was glowing orange with yellow eyes. I was getting ready to mock my skin tone with my new nurse. She walks in and (due to the tanning booth) she was as orange as I was!

    I kind of snickered, but didn’t say anything. At least I didn’t have to pay for my orange skin tone.

    Sometimes laughter is indeed the best medicine. Sure beats chemo and far less side-effects. I think smiling and laughing can make the days a little brighter.

    All of you crack me up! It is a blast reading these posts. Please don’t stop. Adding a little humor to things helps a lot! We could all join the Scar Club.

    Everyone have a great weekend.

    You girls, crack me up. One of Teddy’s favorite movies was “Scarface”. Don’t know why I said that. He looks upon his huge scar as a sign that “this warrior won”.

    There is an old movie called Crash, where two people are infatuated over scars and there was a line in another movie….”chicks dig scars”, so my husband says that alot when out at the pool sporting his huge scar.

    Beth, that is fantastic. My doctor told me that I was glowing so yellow that I could get a job at the airport to help land planes (Glasgow was having severe fog problems at the time) and that I looked like a Simpson’s character.

    My husband and I think that his yellow skin make his teeth look impressively white. No need to bleach them!!!

    Hi all, it’s very wonderful that you are keeping the positive spirit here :). Unluckily my Mum is not. She always worries about her situation although i think it was very good now, except the CA199 thing.

    Hope you all would be happy like this and we will overcome all hardest things in this fight.

    Having cc in the family is the last thing I would ever have expected or wanted – but without cc in our lives, my sister & I would never have met any of you lot & you are all such a BLESSING.

    Kris – we are kindred spirits! So many jokes run through my head that others would find positively morbid if I said them out loud. So now is the time to make this solemn vow (ala Animal House): “I, (state your name), do hereby vow to be completely irreverant in the face of this thing that may or may not bring my body down but cannot take my sense of humor, however dark others may find it.” Then ceremoniously eat a big piece of cake, or smear the icing on your face. Whatever makes you feel good. This is just what I needed today!

    Betsy, you gave me a BIG chuckle. I am such a tight wad I hate spending money. Perhaps I should take your attitude!

    Kris,

    I too admire your courage and sense of humor. I think it is important to see the lighter side even if others don’t understand and find it strange. It’s what keeps you strong. I agree with Lainy, it is this horrible cancer that brought me here and gave me another whole “family” who truely understand.

    All my best wishes to all on these boards.

    Love & Hugs,
    Darla
