Too long away, and very sad news to add

We went to Disney World on the 15th, and had a great time for the most part. I will post more on that when I have more time. We are trying to get the house ready for our company and I came home with a rotten cold.

The last day of our trip, I received the horrific news that one of our current seniors was killed in a car accident on Thursday evening. This didn't ruin the trip, but it did kind of dampen the spirit on Friday. Our kids organized a prayer service for Friday night, and I wish I would have been able to be there, but I will be able to go to her funeral. Its going to be rough going back to school on the 3rd.

And December begins

The month is off to a good start, but then that voice in my head says I shouldn't tempt fate. I have some cookies baked for Christmas, even have some gifts wrapped although there are still more to do. We are looking at the list of things to do before family gets here on the 27th and working as a team, but also we have a week at Disney World to celebrate us.

I had a follow up with my doctor and the bone marrow biopsy I had was negative, and the CT scan didn't show any enlarged lymph nodes which were two things he was concerned with. I am iron deficient but not anemic so I will be getting 12 weeks of IV iron replacement beginning this week. The doc is also consulting some specialist within the field to check on some other results, so things are still at a "not sure" phase, which is OK with me since the worst of the tests so far have come back clear.

I did better blogging before, and have decided to try and make December my month to stay online with my thoughts. . .although we will be in FL from the 15th-22nd.
