Happy Easter!!! Christ is Risen!!!!

Happy Easter Everyone!!!!

Thought I would update you all on my biopsy. My parents and my friend Steve went with me to the hospital on Friday. I was suppose to have my biopsy at 9:30, but there was someone in front of me and the radiologist was late. So mine didn't start until 11:00am. They had to do a CT scan first to be sure there were no masses and to figure out exactly where my kidneys were. They gave me some Versed to relax and numbed up my back. I don't remember much good thing I think because I remember the pain of the needle to numb up my back. I remember the click of him taking the tissue from my left kidney then he was done. On my way back to the room Steve told me I looked at him kinda funny when they wheeled me by. LOL. Hello!!!! I was on drugs!!!! LOL. Anyway, I stayed til 2:30pm and they let me go home. All I have is a small hole in my back and a bruise in my arm from the IV. Now all I have to do is wait until May 7th to hear what they found. I figure what's a few more weeks since it has been almost 6 months since it started and since HE left me. Sorry I promised myself I wouldn't talk about it today.

Steve went to my family's Easter dinner last night with me. I have talked to my parents and sister and they are OK with me seeing him. My kids LOVE him according to them whenever someone asks them if they like him or not. I have my lovable son back when he is around not the depressed kid he has become. I do have him seeing the school counselor and psychologist. I am hoping this helps him. His grades dropped this last grading period since he decided to stop doing his homework. Of course I blame myself for not checking it every night, but I need to give him some responsibility for himself.

Other than that work is going OK other than working a lot. I filed for divorce and now have paperwork started for child support. I am the sole residential parent for my son with visitation for his Dad every other weekend and Wednesdays. I feel like things are now finally moving and I can get on with my life now after almost 5 months. My kids and I were talking the other day that we are doing OK on our own. I have proved a lot to myself that I can support not only myself, but my kids too on my own. We have a roof over our heads and food to eat. I can be independent and don't have to rely on anyone else. Though I am not opposed to it. LOL. Thank you everyone for your encouragement and kind words through all of this. I hope someone out there reads about my journey and finds the strength to carry on in their time of need. If anyone needs encouragement please don't hesitate to contact me I will help in anyway I can.

Oh I have decide to let my website close. That doesn't mean I won't occasionally have things for sale, but it will be on here that you see them. I just can't keep up with everything right now. Thanks again and have a Blessed Day!

Hi Mary!

Well it sure made my Easter nicer to see your update. I pray that you results that show nothing serious. I am sure you want answers though.

It sounds like things are really looking up - and you are on your way to some resolutions. I hope those go smoothly for you.

Lots of hugs, Linda

It is so nice to see an update on how your doing.

I will pray that your test results come back with no problems. But I bet you are anxious to get some answers.

It is so good to see that everything is turning out good for you. I am sure as time goes on everything will just keep looking up.

Have a great Easter...

I've been where you are too, and it does make you feel good to know you can take care of yourself and your kids. Mine left one day, and never came home - just disappeared - so he never paid one bit of child support.
Praying your test results are good, and they find the problem.


...and a happy easter to you. you will remain in my prayers. keep us updated!

Hi Mary ~ thanks so much for updating us on your health. I hope nothing serious shows up in the results, although it can be so frustrating not knowing either!

Glad you're happy and things are going well!

Hi Mary,
So happy for you and your family that everything is going okay for you. I'm praying that the tests come back in your favor as I know they will:)

Julie said...

Wow--six months with no answers--that has got to be more than frustrating. I am having some medical problems right now--with no answers--drives me crazy. I hope you are feeling better and can move on very soon. Your home looks cute, too. Have a nice day. Julie

It's good to see you on here posting again! I sure hope they get to the bottom of your health problems and pray it's something minor!

I'm sure this journey you and your kids have had these past few months has made you all grow stronger and closer. I know your blogging about it has helped others!

God bless you, Mary!

I will offer prayers for you. divorce is a heart rnding thing to go through, much less medical problems on top of that. Don't let your creativity go! I think that making things is very healing. hugs, Robin
