RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
Genetic screening results came back. While I do have a mutation of "uncertain clinical significance" (See: Uh, it's a mutation, but we don't know yet, research wise, if it's harmful to people or not), I do not carry any mutations that make me more susceptible to colon cancer. However, given family history, I should still probably start colonoscopies in 5-10 years.

Need to think of a witty signature.

Living in times where that sort of procedure can be used is a good thing. Thumbsup

During my breast cancer thing I had genetic testing done to see if I carried the BRCA 1 and/or 2 genes. In part to see if my kids could have inherited it from me and also if it was prudent to do a hysterectomy. The tests came back negative...I was sort of surprised since my mother also had breast cancer.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Definitely! Still not perfect, but still. And it was all done using spit that was collected and analyzed. Smile

Sorry you went through that. Sad Not reassuring, given my family history of colon cancer though. But good they didn't identify BRCA 1 or 2 to pass on at least!

Oh, no! The Cone of Shame! Weeping

I tried an inflatable collar. I used it on Karma and Chopper when they were fixed and it worked great. At four this morning I woke up to the sound of Lady licking her stitches...she's back in the cone. Dodgy

Fill it with kibble. Easy eating for that dog on the go.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
