I'm still alive!!!Went to doc's yesterday. Since I have another cyst growing next to the big one , it is a case of wait. If they get too bad then I will have surgery to remove them.
I got sent to the hospital lab (Dr. has his own lab) which is unusual. They took 2 tubes of blood then I had to wait almost an hour while it was tested and the lab doctor read it. Then the decided they had to test my clot time. They cut a little slit in my arm below my elbow and timed me. It took 3 1/2 minutes, what ever that means. I go back next Thursday to see.
In the mean time I was told to not to use my wrist too much. I didn't. I came home and did 7 loads of laundry, baked a sour kraut cake and made spaghetti for dinner. Only the Good Lord knows what I'll do today. Maybe crawl back in the warm bed. It is suppose to be 55 this am. Haven't looked but I know it is cold! Have my flannel PJ pants on!!! LOL

you sure are becoming friends with a lot of professional people lately!! I hope all turns out ok with your wrists too. My daughter-in-law had one on hers and had it removed. Bless her heart she was so scared! You and your wacky cakes. . . are they good? send me some recipes!

Terry had a ganglion cyst removed from her wrist last year, I think.
I get the blood clotting test once a month since I started taking Coumadin, but they just prick my finger and squeeze a drop of blood on a test strip (like test for blood sugar) and it takes about 1 minute total. It will be interesting to hear what they tell you.
I'm trying to remember if I've made the kraut cake before; if I did, it was years ago, but it seems like it was good and very moist! '
I'll start collecting recipes to send you. Grandma's and Mom's are kind of mixed in together, but I can tell from the writing who's is whose. I have some pretty good ones, too, of my own. YOu should email Terry--her lasagne is excellent!! And they make really good stuffing at Tahnksgiving with sausage, apples, raisins...yum!! Ruth
