Oh happy day!!

Over the last nine months we have been monitoring some swollen lymph nodes, it has been to say the least ,a scary time. Trying not to let my worried mind wander to dark places, it was a scary few months. We were finally sent to a specialist who has put all my fears to rest. After some testing they found the root of the problem, her adenoids are causing the gland to be swollen and plugged. They were huge.
We now wait for a couple of months, for the flu and cold season to slow down, then we go back to the hospital to reassess the gland and adenoids. They will then make a decision to pull them at that time.
I walked from the hospital with wings on my heart, it was lighter, happier and I felt so relieved.
Thank you for the support of my blogger buddies, your prayers and positive thinking made all the difference.

To may the day even happier I got hired today by our local grocer, a little part-time position in the Deli. It will be great to have some time for me and extra pocket change for whatever. ;)
