The one thing I miss is knowing how many posts people average in a day... not that it matters, but the inner nerd in me likes to keep an eye on details like that

So in the past month I moved to the US after spending the better part of the last five years in Scotland. Got three job interviews coming up and extremely excited/anxious to see what happens! Hoping to get one of the jobs up in Washington DC so I can move in with one of my old friends who has the ultimate bachelor pad in the city!

Nice one, good luck!

Currently in Richmond,Virginia, which is where I grew up. Most likely will end up in DC by the new year or stay and work in Richmond, preferably the former.

Found out last night that my Mom probably (95%) has breast cancer.

That sucks.

It does. But good recovery rates these days.

Yep, Doctor was positive, told her it's "100% curable" these days.

Won't know for sure until she gets her mammogram and biopsy results back in a couple of weeks. But fingers crossed they've caught it early.

Still scary though.

Well, to be brutally honest, "100% cure-ABLE" doesn't mean that 100% get cured. It's still something of a lottery, sadly. But yes, the odds nowadays are WAY better than they were (say) 20 years ago. My missus is living proof.

Yeah, obviously we're taking the "curable" with a pinch of salt until the results are back, at least.

Sorry to hear it, but if you're gonna get that b*stard illness then that's not a bad type to get. Just get it early. Hopefully all will be well :thumb:

All the best to your mum Stevo. I hope the treament goes to plan.

I think I may have posted negatively. I am in a positive frame of mind to fight the beast as hard as I can and my spirits are great.

I am not scared of dying which means I can fight because I love life. Besides I have a great opportunity to say bye to people I love. Still I can fight hard and aim for a couple of years.

But honestly I am positive. I would rather take this on than any of my friends and family.
