Medical Tests and Another Crazy Week...

This week is filled with medical tests. Sunday morning started with me doing the prep work for a colonoscopy, which I had done yesterday. YUCK! If you have never had to do this, consider yourself extremely lucky! For the rest of us, we hope we don't have to do that again. Though I am thankful it turned out to be nothing major that was wrong with me. On Friday, my Mom is having her third knee replacement surgery. No, she doesn't have 3 legs, just had to have one leg done twice because her bones are so soft from osteoporosis that the first surgery didn't take. DRINK YOUR MILK LADIES or take a supplement you do not want osteoporosis! I also have to have a mammogram repeated on my left armpit area because I had an irregular one in January and they repeat them in 6 months to check. At the time they diagnosed it as a benign lymph node, so hopefully everything is still the same. I am a big believer in preventative medicine, because when we were growing up, we had no medical insurance and that lead to not going to the dr. when we should have and there were long term problems afterwards. The other crazy thing about this week, is we're doing a backpacking camp with our GS on Saturday to Sunday at Morman Island in Grand Island, NE. The girls will learn about packing your pack and canoeing, and sleeping out while on a backpacking trip. Chris filled a couple special orders last night, and I made a gorgeous stone fringe bracelet that we will get pictures up to show you soon.
