  • I mean it must be in the Northern Hemisphere if I'm not 😕, right?

    Yep, the beginning of summer. Here in the in the southern part of the planet it's probably the opposite, the shortest day and beginning of winter.

  • Then the Bonfires would be most welcomed!? xD

    Saint John's Bonfires - and in Catalonia

  • Leo, you rotate in the wrong direction. 😃

  • Leo, you rotate in the wrong direction.

    Plus everyone down there walks around upside down, hanging off the earth like bats.

  • I was sick to the bone, quite literally.
    Been in hospital for two weeks, surgery department. Flegmona in shoulder, the doctors sliced my arm four times with local anesthetic.
    Arm's better now, but my shoulder joint area hasn't been attended, and I'm still sick, temps high, and the elbow movement is to be restored :wine:

    While I was in hospital, they started their annual hot water pipes maintenance, four days left now till I can wash my hair :faint:
    (No hairy smilies do we have! :troll: )


    How's everybody's health now?

  • :beard: :norris: :psmurf: \m/ :spock:

    That's all the hair I can find ...

  • I forgot what "HM" means on a pencil?
    "Helling Machine"? "Hardly Matters"? "Her Majesty's"?
    😕

  • Hey! I made Discord chat for Opera called "Opera Browser Friends"

    Please do join, invite link here: https://discord.gg/kSU7TmZ

    I don't have set agenda for this chat, other than Opera browser (stable, beta, dev) related discussion and support.

    The function of the chat we can all discus and decide there.

  • I forgot what "HM" means on a pencil?
    "Helling Machine"? "Hardly Matters"? "Her Majesty's"?

    I choose door number One. Though it could be "Hardness: Medium"

  • Drafting pencils are rated for hardness of the "lead" from 6B to 6H as I recall (as in, 6B, 5B, 4B, ... 4H, 5H, 6H), but I don't recall "HM". B really stands for black there, a softer pencil leaves more "lead" on the paper and is thus darker.

  • I apologise, it's "HB".
    Her Majesty was on my mind, I guess :whistle:

    Well, I guess it's like medium-medium then...
    :rolleyes:

  • Readmitted to the hospital on the 5th, I was performed with biopsy Tuesday the 10th. Home again, awaiting for the results, to get re-re-admitted for the third time - they're going to scratch my bone in any case, good if no parts removing, yikes. The doctor says when doing the bio, it might not have been resembling the ^bad^ though; however it says in my release paper, the extension seems several centimeters so it might seem I'm up to some pain one way or another.
    He treated my arm very well, however; feeling o'k, much better now. ☕

  • In such contexts, "bad" is malignant while "good" is benign. Just helping with the English there.

  • Are they treating you aggressively with antibiotics? From what I understand, that's usually indicated for treating such a problem, perhaps with some additional measures, since it's often related to something like a deep strep infection at a site.

    "Evil" 😉

    Yeah, Black.
    ABs, let alone some cutting in July to release the phlegm (like a shaft in my meat where they mostly put some unsolvable "lace" to let it stay open, because the inflammation wouldn't stop).
    In July, they didn't find why. Now they thought they did. They - at last - seem to have pumped out the phlegm and quelled the inflammation; and I was performed with tomography etc. where they find likes of it being malignant.
    My doctor though, as I must have mentioned already, said it didn't resemble %bad% much when they biopsied me.

    PS: "Awaiting" is, of course, transitive, sorry about that*;)*

    I broke the arm in that very place just making an energetic move. A piece of shit of a neighbour from 2 floor had made our house a dove territory - I was upset and moved against one trying to flap IN the building.
    ER took me to the hospital, I waited, then a traumatologist somehow immobilised it with pink gypsum.
    Yep, it's cancer. So that I wouldn't be TOO happy with the pink...

    😕 , the Hong-Cola gist (I don't know the English word spelling anyway) said it's not malignant. However, he barely even looked at the papers and he acted veeeery peculiarly.
    (Things getting peculiarlier and peculiarlier. /Alice;)
    Well, got a pass or what do you call it: consultation with a trauma surgeon in a Moscow clinic. This next Monday.
    (I hate travelling -- except I'm in charge;)

  • The English word is oncologist, as in on-colo-gist. A key factor working for you is not having it be malignant... which means it's far less likely to spread throughout the body. Usually malignancy is determined by microscopic examination of the cancer cell shape and structure to determine the type of cancer (which is why they did the biopsy), so my guess is that the oncologist simply looked at the lab report and noted the non-malignancy. Had it been malignant, time usually becomes critically important to get surgery, chemo, and/or radiation started before the cancer cells spread. If it's non-malignant, things frequently move at a slower pace unless the cancer is in a vital organ that needs immediate attention.

  • Not that breaking bones is fun, but it generally doesn't kill you.

  • Breaking an already chewed bone?
    Breaking a bone when you've got other health issues?

    Black, are you saying there is a "good" cancer and a ^bad^ cancer??? 😕


    It's flashing!
    It's not a trauma surgeon, it's cancer surgeon now (oncologist).
    Well, isn't it funny? First attempt of our local onc to send me mother called and was told "we only do legs"; now I called, and a major guy told me they didn't do bones, "though come, I'll see you".
    (:
