Shiny, Happy People

I SOOOOO want to be positive. I really do. I want to post about happy things, great accomplishments, and lots of fun.

It HAS happened. The boys graduated from preschool. We spent the night a couple of weekends ago at Ang's new house, the kids swam in the pool, we played volleyball, drank lots, and their oldest daughter even made breakfast for my boys so I didn't have to get out of bed. Tomorrow night is my Southern Living party.

Unfortunately, we seem no closer to getting my mom's knee surgery. Her chest CT scan showed nodules throughout her lungs, some crystalized and others not. Cause unknown. Her head CT showed atrophy of the cerebral cortex from strokes. Her kidney ultrasound showed some atrophy there as well. So, we have to have a full-body PET scan soon to make sure the lung issue isn't anything to worry about, such as cancer. The new oncologist was great and seemed to be interviewing me as much as my mom. What is scary out of that is that I am going to get genetic testing for breast cancer and colorectal cancer genes because of my family history and my history. That kind of scares me.

I might have to go back to Ang's with the kids this weekend to get a break from being a caretaker.

Well, off to continue getting ready for tomorrow's party. I've got to cook all day tomorrow, but the recipes seem SO YUMMY! I hope I get at LEAST 10 people to actually come to this thing. Only 8 have said they are coming.

Yep - I'm popular, huh?

I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I know that it's tough. Been there a time or two myself. Not with my mom but with my brother. I have to get testing as well because my family history. Hang in there and remember to take breaks!
