My mom’s trip to the Ob/Gyn went well. She had the biopsy done, and after the doctor had taken it he said he would very surprised at anything other than a negative result. While this is obviously not definitive, it is hopeful and I am a big fan of hopeful. We won’t get the full results back until next week, so please keep up the crossed fingers and prayers she is totally cancer free. As for now, she isn’t in much pain and she is in really good spirits, which is awesome. She is actually concentrating more on her GI doctors appointment next week. They think she has scar tissue blockage in her bowls, because of allergies, and they know for certain she has diverticulitis. Her guts have been better since she stopped eating gluten, but there are definitely still some issues. However, as long as those issues aren’t cancer, I am a happy camper.
In other news, Sorcha has a new job and starts Tuesday! The clients for her business are all being understanding about the fact her new hours of operation have to be after 5:00 PM and on the weekends now, as they should be considering the quality of her work. She’ll be making less than 1/2 of what Priss Pot makes a year, but that is fine since SHE knows how not to spend money she doesn’t really have on an impulsive, greedy whim, and thus can live within her budget. Since Artemis and Jupiter both work they pay for their own car insurance and cell phones and clothes, which means all she has to do for her older children is make sure they have food on the table, a roof over their heads, and health insurance. Well, that and give them her love and attention, which is lavish and not a problem. Priss Pot is also going to have to pony up for child support for Gaia, and he will shit a brick edgewise when he gets the court order to do so because he hates to spend money on anything but himself. To be frank his woe will please me greatly, inasmuch as he has begrudged every dime he has had to spend on his daughter since the day of her birth and I despise him for that.
Finally, I have gone gluten free in an attempt to leash my raging ADD (persistent inattentive type). It has gone better than expected, and I already feel better and seem to be able to concentrate better. That can only be a good thing, right? I ordered some cup4cup flour from William & Sonoma, which costs the earth but works a treat, and Sweet Babou is making Lilo and I some pancakes and cinnamon rolls with it this weekend. Yay!
Thank you all for the concern you guys have expressed for both my mom and my friend and my godson. I really appreciate it, and I am so happy I have such wonderful people in my life who read this blog and make the snark with me on Facebook. You are the best!!
