Results Finally!!!!!!

Yesterday I finally got a chance to meet with a Dr. over my U/S results.It was great and kinda made me feel more at ease.He told me that I was probably born with these tumors.I have 3 in total,and the largest is over 4 cm.Sometimes nothing is done until they are larger than 10 cm,or if they are bothering neighboring organs etc. My larger one is very close to a major blood vessel for my heart.I did however find out that I have several free moving gallstones,giving me the discomfort other than the tumors.This was good to hear.He was kind enough to book my abdominal CT scan along with the head one I will have next week for my neurosurgeon.The Dr. just looked at me when I told him it was a routine check up for the tumor I had in my brain.I think I shocked him.

So what else has been going on in your little part of the world? Our weather is starting to get better now. It always does right before school starts.I have been playing co-ed volleyball in the evenings,and love it,but my arms are a sight.I'm all bruised and swollen.No pain, no gain I guess.

I planned and pulled off an island wide picnic,which had great food and good attendance.I however, need to be more specific in food directions as I asked a lady to bring a tossed salad made with 2 heads of lettuce,and that is precisely what I got..........two heads of lettuce in a bowl......LOL. When life gives you lettuce, make a salad.

Here is a LO I finished of DD.I loved the bright colors of the BG Lime Rickey for this one.

Here is another LO of Evan. I had these photos for quite awhile.I just so happened to be out on the front lawn when he decided he'd be a dare devil and take off Mock 3 down our back hill on his bike.I had to capture the moment,then I went to his aid.

Home Sweet Home

I love to go away for a couple of days,but I really love to come home.We made a flying trip away the other day to pick up some hamburger that my BIL had for us and get Evan's birthday gifts.I was hoping to see a bit of that bright yellow thing up in the sky,but I only saw it briefly.On Thursday,we had torrential downpours.I thought I was going to need an ark.

While I was away of course, my Dr. called with what could finally be my U/S results.I guess I won't know anymore until after the holiday weekend,but I'll be on the phone the first thing Tuesday morning to see what is up and get this ball rolling.Sadly it looks like getting in to a Dr. that deals with the liver,can be a lengthy a YEAR!!!!!!! especially if what you have isn't deemed as an emergency,which is a good thing,but still it shouldn't be there and I'd like to get it either removed or the assurance that it is fine and won't affect me.I may qualify to see a general surgeon and if that is the case, it will be somewhat faster.We so need more Dr.s around here.

Here is a layout I did for the layout tag over at Skrapnchat.I just love Crate Paper! I think I'll add a little more to this layout now that the tag is over. I didn't want to go too far away from the original one.

I'll be back with a few more layouts shortly.I've got them stock piled here.
