Gently Tended Thoughts

I feel like I'd love a good scream.

Mike is having his thyroidectomy on Friday. If that's not nerve-wracking enough, now Amanda has discovered some kind of mass in her nasal passages. Her nose is actually no longer symmetrical (the dimple on one side is gone)! She went to the ENT today and he hasn't ruled anything out, including a tumor, and wants to see if he can aspirate anything on Christmas Eve. However, she would have to come off the Coumadin for five days, and she probably will not get approval to do that, due to the blood clots in her lung and the one in her leg.

2012 has sucked medically for my loved ones.

Right now, I feel like I just want to crawl out of my skin, I am so stressed. Just getting ready to be off for two days from the office is a lot, but you all know how that is! Even before Amanda discovered this problem, I had asked Mike to put off the thyroidectomy for another few months or so, monitor it with a scan and another biopsy, but he declined, because our business is slow Christmas week. But, it's his body and decision and it's my job to support him. My inner child just wants to run and hide for a while, though. Do you ever feel that way?

And of course the pall of what happened in Connecticut is hanging over all of us. It's just not a good time. Would appreciate prayers for my nerves and, of course, Mike and Amanda! (And I keep all of you close in prayer, as well).

You know how often I've wanted to run away and hide until it's "all better"? Yes, that often.


Sweetie, the not so great stuff just won't quit, will it?
Is there any other diagnostic that can be used on Amanda? I know an ultrasound would do the trick e.g. or a scope...something that wouldn't require he to go off the coumadin.

Sending all the loving thoughts I can for thsi new challenge. Wish we could sit a while and talk...
