I am so very thankful that the cat scan did not show this lump as cancer and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to get this news. However, I did find out the pain and lumps are caused from gallstones, a kidney stone, umbilical hernia (most likely from having Kathleen) and a hianal (sp??) hernia. So even though a few whammies, I am thankful it is not life threatening. The Dr. does not feel surgery is needed at this time. So I guess I will proceed back into my exercising lightly and listen to my body's signals of when to stop. :-)
If anyone out there has ever had any of the above I'd love to hear your advice/remedies! :-)
Thanks again for all your support!
We've been super busy around the house....Hayley has been working on this tipi, even large enough for her American girls :-)
Thanks to PopPop for his guidance and help in constructing it! :-)
I've been volunteering a lot at Kathleen's school and the other day I took cupcakes in to celebrate her birthday.
Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing was her request!
I'd say they were a pretty big hit! ;-)
Today was wacky dress day for Hayley's class...
Quite the outfit I'd say, lol!

My two beautiful girls!
I really enjoy helping out in Kathleen's school and I love how happy she is when she sees me arrive. These moments I treasure! :-)
She was so proud, she made the hat all by herself!
I love catching these random shots...
Having a great time with fellow classmates!
Then when we came home she made this up on her plate... always trying to get away with a junk lunch, lol. But I always steer her healthy and let a treat or two off of her plate. :-) But it sure is fun to try!!
Looks like she's following in my footsteps in making special lunches:-) I couldn't be prouder!
We arrived safely at my mom's but I was pretty torn up traveling without my Sally for the first time. She always loved my parent's house and their dogs were looking for her tonight. Will be our first holiday without her... who will eat all her leftovers? :-( Our neighbors Ben and Jessica gave us a book called Dog Heaven with a beautiful inscription inside...well yeah that got me crying again. It takes time I know...
But in better news I get a few days with family to unwind, relax and shop!! Hoping to see Breaking Dawn with Jerry while we have a sitter! :-) Hint Mom and Dad ;-) Also thinking of taking the girls to see the Muppet Movie. I grew up with the Muppets and always enjoyed them.
Have a very blessed Thanksgiving!!
