No, I am not one of those people who celebrate birthdays for a week. I have one daughter's birthday at the beginning of the week, and the other daughter's birthday at the end of the week. My youngest turned 15 on the 15th. The golden birthday. She announced on Saturday night that she wanted to go to Camp Sunshine, in Maine, on her birthday. So, I called up and got it arranged and off we went, for an over night. We had a great time, saw so many people that we know and love and as always, made new friends.
Meanwhile, the medical issues are getting cleared up. My older daughter has not relapsed. They are not sure exactly what is causing the headaches, but it is not cancer, nor is it life threatening. Praise God. My cancer has not come back, but is a kink in my intestines at the surgery site. Again, God is Good. It is good to know that they have found the problem. I will meet next week with the doctor to get a plan of action, which as I have studied up on is surgery. I am not keen on needing surgery, but I am very keen on not being in pain anymore. It is pretty constant, but I am able to get through the days.
Today we are off to Boston to see the Harry Potter exhibit before it leaves town. Both girls are huge Potter fans and the exhibit is supposed to be amazing. Thanks to my mom and dad, we are able to go.
We now have a museum membership at the MOS for the whole year. YAY!
On Saturday, my oldest daughter will be turning 17. We will be going into Boston again, just she and I, to see Lion King. She has loved Lion King since she was 2 years old. I am really looking forward to this time with her.
And, on the school front, I am plugging away. I have a hard time studying without my dog by my side. I know it sounds silly, but he truly was my study buddy. So I have ordered one of those lifelike stuffed puppies that breathes and makes doggy sounds. I am hoping that my school work becomes a little easier when it arrives. I seem to be able to concentrate for brief moments of time and wind up pacing around about every 5-10 minutes, just missing my Jack and his constant companionship. I know that this too shall pass, but in the meantime, I need to find a way to get through it, and I am hoping my new little study buddy will help the transition be a little smoother.
Wow, it really helps to get some of this out. It has been so long since I have blogged, but now I need to get ready for Boston, trip 1.
