Abba-Zaba Baby!!

One of my favorite candies ever is the Abba-Zaba. Not so good for the teeth, but very, VERY good for the tummy. Unfortunately they’re not so easy to find any more. But fortunately, there is a candy store in the King of Prussia Mall that sells them. I was in there buying candy for Christmas stockings and picked one of these little numbers up for myself. I hadn’t gotten around to eating it and yesterday I was so glad! I ate it and watched “The Quick and the Dead” in my bed and it was a long moment of sheer pleasure. Yea for me.

I’m off to see the gynecologist in a little bit. My “normal post-biopsy bleeding” has turned into what we think may be a slow hemorrhage. My very cynical self is thinking, of course it is. My poor kids have had to cancel whatever plans they’d made with their friends today and I know Todd really wanted to spend his day off work taking care of me. Oh wait. That’s always what he does on his day off work.

Taylor came in my room to see how I was feeling and I started crying. Poor guy. LOL When I could finally talk I told him I was so sorry he was having to cancel his plans today and what a lousy day off school it was turning out to be because of me. He just hugged me and said it was okay. Then Katie came in and I apologized to her for the lousy vacation day and she also said it was okay and gave me love.

*sigh* You know, even in the midst of all this medical stuff, it’s still good to be me.

    Oh dear Lord! I just said a prayer for you…I worry about you so please let us know (a.s.a.p.) how you are doing. We have a Cape May trip to plan, so you need to get better! **major hugs**

    That stinks! Your kids sound wonderful though. I’ll be thinking of you and hoping it stops soon!

    It’s me, the virgin blogger! Thanks for your comment yesterday! i just stopped by and read your blog. Are you okay? I don’t mean to seem like you have to share any thing personal with me, I guess I just wonder since I haven’t read your blog before. I am married, with 2 kids. Hope you stop by my blog again!

    I’m praying for you too, friend. Thanks for remembering me when your trial is so much bigger than mine.

    Thanks for the continued hugs, prayers and good thoughts! I’m MUCH better today on all counts. I’ll do a new post in a little bit.Anne – No need for the worrying. :o)Manic – I have my moments of parental brilliance. LOLJodi – I SO want to go to Cape May with you!! We would have so much fun, but I wonder if we would be allowed back…Erin – All went well. And I’m sorry you had to catch me in the middle of a crisis. LOLKris – Yeah, they understand. I’m lucky that they were as old as they were when this whole debacle started nearly two years ago.Jen – Next time any and/or all of them are driving me crazy I’ll have to remember this. :o)Slackermommy – Such nice words!! Thanks!!! Next time I’m questioning myself I’m going to come back and read this. LOLRadioactive – Just another one of those “things” that I know you’re well acquainted with. This too shall pass. THANKFULLY!Antsy – I’m glad you came by! I’m just sorry it was in the middle of all this junk. I’ve been needing to update my links for a while, now, so I’ll add you when I do. I’ll be over to check out your blog again in a little bit. And I’m okay. Thanks. :o) BTW – after you’ve been here a little while you’ll find out that not much is too personal for me. In fact, I probably say too much. Oh well. That’s just how I roll.Aim – I’m staying strong!!April – I’ve learned that our trials are relative. There’s always someone else going through something worse, but it doesn’t mean our problems aren’t real. So dinna fash yerself! I hope you’re feeling better and that “something” is better, as well.

    LOL! We will turn that little Victorian town on its little Victorian ear! We’ll go all 21st century on them…I don’t even know what that means, but it sounds dramatic and I love to sound dramatic. Maybe we’ll ruffle some feathers by wearing our hair down and showing our ankles! 😉
