I should be used to unexpected turns.

Good or bad, that's what makes memories and stamps imprints in our Lives .

Like the collage of pictures above. Memories! Imprints!



Well---------here is a good imprint to remember.........


My dermatologist and I had a good long conversation this morning.

These bumps on my body are caused from a rare genetic disease called "Reeds syndrome"

and they can in some cases causes kidney tumors {cancer}

I will be flown to Maryland {Hi Jeri, I'm gunna come see you}

for 3 days where they will do tests on me......our tax dollars at work, this will not cost me a cent.

Reason being is cuz this is such a rare disease!



Not that this news isn't bad enough......

I was informed they have to go back in for the THIRD time and take more out from my already

huge %$#@ incision.

REALLY? I think all the blood just flushed out of my face just now.....:)


He scheduled me with a plastic surgeon so I will be put out the third time around.

They will also take out two more bumps.....great!

Guess what that means? 4 WEEKS OF NO BATHS!!!

How will I survive my daily night time bubble bath with Dt Coke?

Such sacrafice I tell ya...........



I need a sonic!
