Well, it's one o'clock thursday morning, and I'm still up....

I keep going over the results that we got on Monday. There's a lump on my air-pipe. Nothing to worry about, because it's only 1 cm big, and if the slide would have been taken just a little bit more to one side or another, it wouldn't have even shown up at all........ So.... is that good news, or bad news? I don't know!

I'm desperately trying to find my medical records, so I can determine if the thing never went away (which would make it "good news" and only needs monitoring) or if it is new (which would make it bad news, because that means the cancer may be back!)  I have another appointment for a vein-hunt, I mean blood-test, end of August. If my blood shows signs of dead cells, it means I have to have another biopsy.... This sucks so bad, I can't find words.

BUT! I have decided, that I'm going to have good thoughts about this. After all, the "pac-man method" worked on getting me thru chemo, and my newly developed "I'm fit as a fiddle" method, will make the wait less stressful. Not to say that I don't have a constant stream of prayers going, but ..... Maybe the mind will heal the body.

On a lighter note..... Not sleeping has advantages... you have a lot of time in a day to get ideas! Couple that to not having been able to scrap for 4 months and you end up with.... 2 more pages LOL

Here they are. They are made with Star Song Studio's Sea Side kit. It is one of 4 or 5 kits I have seen in her stores. I bet, if you put all of them together, you'd never want for another nautical kit again, unless you want pirates :-) 

The pictures were taken in Domburg, Zeeland. I so missed going to the beach over the last couple of years. Hearing the tide, seeing the gulls dip in the water.... When we lived in Reno, the Ocean was only 5 hours away, but Iowa, Texas and Arizona were a whole different ballgame..... Now, we're only 4 hours away, that is, if I read the map right otherwise it takes a little longer LOL!

I like the pages, but I don't think they show off the kit to it's full extend. Being in the mood I'm in, I think I went for something to match my state of mind..... very subdued.


  1. I agree with you, keep the "fit as a fiddle" mind frame going! You are doing a great job! Keep it up! The more we think about things, the more power we give think good things... Think healthy! I will say prayers of gratitude for you. :)

  2. I´m so sorry to read about your health scare and can imagine how anxious you must be. I´ll keep you in my thoughts.

  3. Thanks Helen. Every good thought helps. :-)
