Salvete, amici Romani!

I just returned from the Oklahoma City VA Medical Center last week. I am halfway through my five-year post-cancer "surveillance period"...and I'm still clean.

BOO-YAH!!!!!!!!! *assumes Crane position, pumps fist*

Too bad they can't do anything about my scatterbrain... Ahh, well. People have to be able to recognise me when I come here, nonne? >({|;-)

Comin' Through

Salvete amici!

The VA health care system has always come through for me. It's the 'forsaken Compensation and Pension Division that hasn't given me anything but a hard time. "Jet fuel causes cancer?? --Prove it!"

But VA Medical Center Dallas screwed my head back on reasonably straight after my psychiatric episode; VAMC Loma Linda found meds that could do the job without wiping my brain; and VAMC Oklahoma City caught and removed the cancer before it got very far. For free, all of it! I defy the best-laid health-care plans of mice and men to do the same.

Great news Mari! Glad to read things are looking more on the up and up for you!

I owe you an email about the Templvm Isidis site. As soon as I find the password, I'll send it to you if you would like to have the site.

Ad Marium ipsum -

Here it is, 2019, I manage to log in once more and read your announcement of your passing that 5-year mark of "no cancer".

That was 2010 - in 2015, I myself had cancer and treatment and all that. Sometime next year, I'll be at that mark of five cancer-clear years.

Now, since this IS 2019 and this venerable old site has been still and quiet for so many years, I wonder if I can actually post this post....

Marius here too; login successful, neither lock nor key has gotten rusty, and I hope this message doesn't triple-post.

Here goes nuthin'....

I never did close the Forum to new posts, only to registering any new members. If you want to bring back the crew, you can.
