...while you're making plans. Right? Isn't that how the quote goes?
Well, we had a lot of plans for this year, this summer.
A family vacation to D.C., Maryland, and Baltimore.
A huge vegetable garden, especially for my son who missed out on Mom gardening because of all the upheaval in our lives the last two years. I want my kids to remember me as a gardener, so they might get bit by the gardening bug one day. :^)
Fixing up the house.
Doing fun day trips together as a family.
Rejuvenating the neglected and overgrown perennial beds......
.....Then I woke up with a pain in my side. An ultrasound showed a large cyst. Follow-up tests suggest possible ovarian cancer, but I'm feeling unexpectedly upbeat right now, and the doctors are cautiously optimistic. When it comes out and they give me a definitive outcome, then I'll be upset if I have to be. My husband on the other hand is overloaded and worried...but he is being so strong!
Surgery is scheduled for sometime on Thursday, May 7th. I may be out of touch and commission for some time...or I may be bed-bound with just a laptop to keep me occupied and I'll post like a maniac. :^)
Either way...if you read this, please keep me in your thoughts on Thursday.
