Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    Mrs Parallel is scheduled for surgery on March 25. There's a fair chance the surgery can be done laparoscopic and robot-assisted, but the surgeon will make that call during the procedure. There is a 75% chance that she will NOT need radiation therapy (assuming the cancer hasn't spread). All of the pre-op stuff has been done today; exam by the gynecologic oncologist, blood work, EKG and chest xrays.

    To give you an idea of her attitude, she posted the following on her FB page:

    Mrs. Parallel — "
    on the positive side the doctor said I need to wear moo moos after the surgery, so I may have to become old officially now."


    To which I replied — "
    The doctor said when you're RECOVERING moo moos are a good option. That doesn't give you carte blanche to run around like the people of Walmart." :))

    I don't know your circumstances, but if you need lodging while getting treatment, look for an American Cancer Society Hope Lodge.  Wonderful support.

    As a fellow survivor, good luck.

    Thanks for the tip Doc. We've sprung for a private room so that I can be with her to help take care of her.

    Haven't signed on in quite awhile and almost forgot my password in the meantime - but wanted to wish you the best of luck Parallel.  By the sounds of it she's a fighter and should pull through no problem.

    make sure to keep us all posted.  Us Egghead's gotta stick together.
