I'm a bunch of mixed feelings, heart aches and upsets stomachs. I'd love to blame hormones but I'm sure it's just the way I am. The weekend was pretty good. Spent most of Saturday at Mama MB's. Just hanging with her, letting the girls play. Papa and Mr. MB stayed outside working on one of Papa's project trucks. I stayed inside, cleaning and hanging/talking with Mama MB. She got out of bed around lunch or so and felt.....better. The pain meds are helping, though I did hear her say today that she was still hurting.
I'm just glad she's out of bed.... eating and drinking.

I've a Dr appointment tomorrow, the first appointment with the OB. I'm curious as to if they will do an ultrasound or not. Shall see!

They're going to do some radiation on the "somebigword" gland and on her back. Those two are apparently close enough to where they can take care of them both at the same time.
Hopes are to shrink that down, it's swollen .. the gland and then maybe that will relieve some of her pains.
My aunt is also working on getting a second opinion lined up with the cancer center in Atlanta. This is all pretty much hearsay at this point for me, because I haven't spoken to my aunt yet. Just Granny MB over the phone. Will keep ya posted! I'm not asking questions with Mama MB because I don't want to push the issue of making her talk about it. Is this wrong?

This is a lovely sunrise though. I think perhaps this was me getting off the interstate heading to work.

I thought for a second this was another sunrise, but I looked again and it's of the lake and the .. steam? ... coming off the lake. That's a local fishing pond in the city!
We haven't been yet, fishing isn't my favorite thing to do. I wonder why Papa MB hasn't gone here yet. Then again a lot of the fishing lakes have like no throw back policies and pay by the pound stuff. We don't really eat fish. Guess that's a possible reason!

It only got hard when having to talk to her about Mama MB's condition. She loves us all and Mama MB as well, so it seemed fair that she hear everything as well. She was sympathetic and understood what and where I was coming from. For that I am glad. Just hope it's not another couple months before I see them again!

Did a little home improvement today in the soon to be baby MB room. (still need a MB kinda name)
Took this photo as I took a stroll over to visit with Mama and Papa MB. Just to check in, hadn't been there all day.
Mama MB didn't seem to be in a great mood today. Grumpy from whatever reason. I didn't ask. Just held my tongue and played the patience card. I'm good at that ya know! It's hard , sometimes.
One more before I go, check out the picture I snapped on the stroll over to Mama MB's today!
It's our little pathway through the woods. It's incomplete, but we were able to get these big wood things pulled out there! Mr MB blew all the leaves from the path. I miss the leaves a little, but it looks nice!
There ya have it Dingleberries. My week of 2012. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did and I'm hoping to do better next week. I can't hang out in depression land. I gotta pull through this, because... it could always be worse!!
Hang in there!
