Answered prayer

I have prayed for one particular thing to happen for more than a year. Today after having given up on it, forgotten about, no longer prayed for… it came true.

My son was accepted to the college of his choice. I couldn’t be happier. I literally sobbed like a big baby for just short of an hour. Thank you! I hope it is everything he wants it to be and more. Tomorrow is my birthday and I do not want and or need anything else, but to see him happy. He is!
So am I.


They came out of Pandoras Box

That’s what my Dad told me about woodticks.

I wish that box would have stayed shut. I pulled a small tick off my face Saturday night after taking my dog through the priory.

Beautiful natural area 2 minutes from my house that I would never had known about if it wasn’t for Geocaching. People make fun of me, but I am thankful for it. I have been introduced to many unique places in the short time I have been doing it.

Thank you to my fellow geocacers. You have opened my eyes to many new and beautiful places. Pandora can keep the ticks.

What’s a Pancreas?

When my mom was 59 she decided to sell our home and buy something simpler. She didn’t waste anytime. She sold her home, bought and bought a new one. She painted and bought new furniture for everyroom. The last room to be painted was the bathroom.
She called me as soon as she finished. She was proud of how it

turned out. She also mentioned that she felt like she pulled a muscle or something in her stomach. 
     A week went by and she told me it was different than a pulled muscle it was more of a sensation. She went to the doctor. He sent her home with antibiotics for a “stomach infection”.
After a week, she still wasn’t feeling any better, she had also fallen asleep at work. Which she chuckled about.
She had an ultrasound, then a cat scan.
I remember sitting in the waiting room with my aunt. My aunt said “it’s gonna be cancer..that is what they are going to say.” I was stunned. Stunned that the thought never came I to my mind. I was also scared. My mother had cancer when I was a teenager. I was told then she might not make it. That was almost 15 years ago.
    I remember waiting for a Radiologist to read her scan. It seemed like forever. He finally came out to tell us there showed a small cyst like mass on the Pancreas.  The what? I felt clueless as if I had never heard the word before.
I didn’t know what it was for?  I didn’t ask any of these questions out loud I just thought them.
After I got home I Googled cyst on Pancreas. I was in for a very rude awakening when I saw Pancreatic Cancer. 6% of people with Pancreatic Cancer live 5 years.

6% alive after 5 years. 6% …5 years.

I hope that isn’t what she has…
