Bad Medicine

I just love this fairy!

I would like to ask for some positive energy and prayers to be sent our way again...

My dad went for his yearly CT scan for his lungs a few weeks ago.  He has some calcifications from asbestos exposure that need to be watched each year.  Last year they found a small cyst on his kidney.

Many people get these kidney cysts, in fact Hubby has two small ones, and 9 times out of 10, nothing happens with them.  Unfortunately, my dad's grew from last year until this year and he has to go for more tests.

Please, keep your fingers crossed that it is still nothing to worry about! 

Also on the medical front, Hubby went to see the gastro guy to get his colonoscopy scheduled.  That office is supposed to call tomorrow with the info.  Hubby really wants to get back to eating fruits and salads, so he wants this done quickly! 

Hubby is so aggravated by the diverticulosis happening to him at all, but hey, we don't get to pick and chose our lot in life!  Some things just happen.  He also messed up one of his toes playing basketball in bare feet with Fuzzy, and then made his bad shoulder sore throwing the kids around in the pool.

He is a bit cranky today, feeling the pain.  And, yet, he was calling me on being cranky earlier (when the kids left a mess of dessert plates and cards all over the table). 

Amazing how quickly he forgets that I am in pain all day every day.  <sigh>

Well, thanks for listening to my rambling!  I think I am going to do a meme a little later!

be well,
Dawn

Prayers for your dad being said right now.  I am sure sorry for the extra worry of this.  I don't think people who do not deal with chronic pain have any idea of how difficult it is.  And I notice some folks always believe their own pain is far worse than anybody else's lol.  Not to say that's so for your hubby but it is for some.
loving you
karyl

Okay, I better get my Rob to eat more fruits and salads now so this can be prevented maybe.  This is the second person in  J Land having to go through a colonoscopy and I am getting worried. Prayers and hugs for both dad and hubby.  Hugs,

I'm praying that all is well with your dad.  I need to schedule a baseline colonoscopy since I'm over 50.  I'm also considering paying for a CT scan of my lungs myself since I've stopped smoking to be on the safe side.  Sort of scared of that one.  I'm praying for all of you.  HUGS  Chris
