Naming your tumor???

Ok, I saw on a few posts that some are naming their tumors.  I decided why not?  Maybe that would help me deal better.  Sooo, mine is Stewart (who is my favorite minnion on Depicable Me) I know....probably silly but I love those little guys.  I told my daughter who is 19, she thought it was funny and loved it. She went and rented the new movie and we watched it together.  My husband, however, is mortified.  He can't believe that I would actually name something like that and I think, thinks I have lost my mind.

    What's in a Name?

    Whatever works best for you Toni!...Naming and name calling creates a different attachment. For me personally, if I give something a name I feel closer to it, that wasn't happening! I always referred to it as the 'little blighter', a fitting old English slang term meaning a worthless waste of space!! lol!!

    Mine was named Arnold

    Just because every time the word "tumour" came out, my husband would say in Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice "it's not a tumour!!" (a line from Kindergarten Cop"). We tried to laugh about it as much as we could. Laughter is ALWAYS good. I have to say that because this tumour was a pain in my arse, I was going to name it after my ex-husband, but I didn't want to offend my kids. lol

    However, everyone deals with it in their own way. Whatever works for you! I love "Despicable Me" as well - and would love to see #2. Everytime I hear the minions during a commercial, it catches my attention. They are adorable!

    Hang in there, hon. I know it is hard to learn about RCC and accept it, but once you get over that hurdle, it will be better. It sounds like you are ready to face this - and take Stewart on!!

    Kardashians

    We should all name our tumors after the Kardashians. What wouldn't we do to make them go away?

    I wish I had named my tumor.

    I wish I had named my tumor. But it just doesn't work for me afterwards. My parting comment is... As long as Stewart is not your husband,s name, no worries.. Ta dum.. Ron

    Tumor names

    My primary tumor (9cm ovarian adenocarcinoma) was called Gizmo. By the time we were properly introduced she already had a whole bunch of baby Gremlins hiding everywhere. This caused a lot of dumb jokes ranging from the suggestion to insert a flashlight and kill them with direct light to the almost sincere refusal to get them wet after midnight.

    Walter?

    Um.... So we didn't name the primary but removal of the left kidney and lymph nodes created a wonderful hydrocele that we've named Walter.

    Close

    I  think you meant no feeding after midnight and never get them wet.

    I couldn't agree with you

    I couldn't agree with you more, Foxy!

    The Kardashians would, however, be the type of tumour to make a return, don't you think?

    Yell
