unexpected.....



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.....:)


GOOD NEWS?


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...........
