Who knew 8 weeks could fly by so quick? Next Tuesday I go back to see Dr. Panwalkar already. My "summer" off may be on hiatus for awhile. I'm trying not to get too vested in what may come. Cue Doris Day singing in my head "Que Sera, Sera." (What will be, will be.)
The tissue around my wound has changed somewhat. It is thickened, almost lumpy. It will be something or it won't. We'll see what my tumor markers suggest.
But that isn't really the stuff I would want to share with Dr. Panwalkar about my time off.
I'd tell him about all of the people I have connected with. Like my friends above in the picture. Lisa to my right and her sister Susan sitting below us, were childhood friends of mine- our mothers were good friends.
Lisa lives in Alaska and brought her 3 children home for a visit while her husband Bill, is away on an archeological site in Alaska. How cool is that?
We spent the morning reminiscing about youth group. And about how my mom took sugar out of our diet when we were young. I'm eating Shirley's home made doughnuts as I type. Sorry mom- some things I can't resist. I also have her Russian tea recipe and I make her fudge bars all the time. Shirley made sure I was sweetened in all the right ways!
I'd have plenty to tell Dr. P. I've lived lots of moments. Really good moments. I'd hang on to more than I'd let go.
Tomorrow I leave for a girlfriend's trip with my book club gals. We are going to the lake and I can't wait! We've been counting down the days and now hours through emails and suddenly its almost here. Truth be told it feels like packing for summer camp and I just need to sharpie my name on the tags of my clothes!
In the meantime I've helped cart boys to the golf course this week. Nolan played in two different golf tournaments. Monday did not go very well. Tuesday and Wednesday he played in the Jr All City tourney. Rick estimated Nolan could shoot lower than he usually does and he landed in a flight of older boys. But it must have inspired him! He ended up 4th in his flight and even got a trophy for his efforts.
Tonight, Colton's baseball team plays in the year end championship game. Win or lose we're celebrating the season after the game with a pizza party.
I've learned to celebrate the moments, win or lose.
What are you taking time to celebrate these days?
(They won in a close game 3-2)
