Today, when I should be stressed and crazed, all I can feel is thankful.
I was worried about my doctor appointment and mammogram. I've had a spot on my breast for 6 weeks now. It was definitely worrying me. I loved the mammogram technician yelling at me for scheduling a routine mammogram instead of a diagnostic. We have truly crappy insurance. A diagnostic mammogram would not be covered, a routine is. No real choice there. Crappy logic on my insurance company's part, or maybe not, as their responsibility is their bottom line, but easy decision on my part. Either one would find a problem, if there is one, the difference is speed of results and how much it costs me.
Anyway, my doctor thinks everything looks good. We'll keep an eye on things and go from there, but she truly thinks it's fine and so do I.
It's impossible to get stressed out over shopping, cleaning and baking after that. Trust me.
Anyway, things are good. Mark's still sick, but getting better. He caught another bug over the weekend, the doctor said his immune system is weakened so he's going to be at risk of catching anything and everything, but he's getting better from that one too. I'm hopeful we can have a nice weekend, with him feeling better, us not stressed over my situation, and the kids doing well. Hopefully it will turn out like that. :)
My shopping's almost done. I haven't begun to wrap. I have to tackle that one of these days. I haven't cleaned, I haven't baked, I haven't done a whole lot of things, but I'm going to take it one step at a time, and remember how thankful I am, how lucky I am, and try to concentrate on only the things that really matter, big picture.
Thanks for your prayers. I felt them and it really meant a lot.
