Because there is a Polar Pop out there with my name on it.

First, Aunt Donna's procedure went well.  They were able to remove her tumor by doing a colonoscopy and doing it that way.  They couldn't do it at the initial colonoscopy because they needed to get some tools to perform the procedure that they didn't have.  We're glad that it was basically as minimally invasive as possible.  Aunt Donna had herself all thinking that parts of colon or intestine were being removed and that rehab would be necessary. 

Thankfully, not so.  Her procedure (wasn't full on surgery) was supposed to be at 7:30 AM so I arrived at 6:25 AM to find her no where around.  She had been rolled down at 5:50 AM, so I had to hunt down the colonoscopy room and hang out there. 

Bill was fine and I'm thankful for the word search app on the Kindle.  It took the awkwardness of the situation away. 

Tomorrow, she'll be having the lumpectomy on her breast done.  I believe that to be true since it actually came out of a physicians mouth.  Lord only knows what time I'll need to be up and out for that.  I'm good with it.  Don't think I'm not.  I wouldn't consider not being there for her, but caffeine-- oh it shall be my friend.

With that, it is supposed to be a freakishly warm 60 degree day.  Pardon me as I go crack a few windows open.  I long for fresh air. 

Keep the prayers coming.  Thanks so much!
