I am going to try really hard not to be negative in this post so I am going to keep it as short as possible! It has been 'one of those days' the past two days! Michael has been out of town since Saturday on mission trip and the last 2 days Carver has really acted ugly and I am ashamed to admit but... so have I! It has just been one very long week.
Anyway.... let me get to the update real quick. I went for my ultrasound yesterday. I have not heard officially from the doctor yet but the tech went ahead and told me that the cysts were bigger. So... I know the surgery will happen next Friday! So... that is that. :)
I appreciate all of the prayers and I ask that you keep em coming! :) What I dread the most is having to drink that nasty gallon of stuff the night before. I have a very weak stomach for that sort of thing. I couldn't drink it all the last time and I am worried that since I already know how it is... that I won't get much of it down this time. Anyway... I know I have to but if I start throwing it up... it isn't working anyway. So... if you could also pray about that for me.... I would greatly appreciate it! Yuck! :)
I wanted to post something crafty today. I haven't been very crafty the past couple of weeks. I have not made hardly anything... not compared to 'normal'. Knowing that this surgery was coming up... I have been working hard on the house cleaning, etc and getting other things taken care of that need to be taken care of in case I am 'down' longer than expected! :) Anyway... here is a card and a tag that I made a while ago for a PC call.

I have one more prayer request. The most important one! I took C to the doc today because his ear is hurting. It wasn't a big deal... he just got some ear drops. But... I noticed a few weeks ago... a spot on his iris that was a lighter brown than his dark brown eyes. The doc (by text) didn't think it was anything to worry about and just wanted me to show it to him the next time we came in. Since we came in today, I showed it to him. He still isn't very concerned but he went ahead and tried to contact one of his ophthalmologist friends. He couldn't get him but talked to a nurse who said we should make C an appt. just to make sure. So... we have to wait A MONTH to go to this appt.!! If you could please please please pray that it is nothing and that our little boy is going to be fine... I would really appreciate it! If you are a mother... you can understand how I am feeling right now! On top of everything else and then I feel like I have to worry about this for a month to find out! I want to know now!! I am going to try not to worry but when it is your child... how can you not? Anyway....
This post was way too long! Like I said... it has just been a long week!!
Thanks for listening and praying! I hope you have a fab weekend!
Peace and Love!
