Another shot
Ok so this is the only thing I "collect". I love my Christopher Radko ornaments. I usually get them every year for Christmas and my Birthday.
Grayden getting his breathing treatment. He actually enjoys it!

That is what it's been like around here!

First let me update you on my appointment with the ENT that was on Thursday. The Dr. is still really confused on why my same lymph node keeps flaring up so I had two options wait until it flared up again or remove it. Of course no one ever wants to have surgery, but I don't want to have to keep dealing with this several times a year for several more years. I have decided to have it removed. One of the ways that I came to this decision is when people have 2 or 3 throat infections a year they almost always get their their tonsils removed. The doctor's don't always know why they get the infections, but by removing the tonsils it decreases their chances for infections by a lot. I'm hoping that removing this lymph node my infections will decrease too. I am having surgery this Wednesday at Jackson's Hospital. I will go Tuesday for my pre-op to see what time my surgery will be, but the surgery coordinator for Dr. Evans said it should be around 8:00 am. I will post the time of my surgery Tuesday evening after my appt.

Let's see what's next. Oh I know, I am officially off birth control!!!! I can't tell you how much of a relief this is. Technically Jonathan and I could do treatments this month, but I'm going to rest the rest of this month from surgery, Christmas, and everything else. We will start back at ART after the first of the year. Of course I will keep everyone posted on that.

This weekend Jonathan and I went with Tab, Meribeth, and Riley to get our Christmas tree. We took some pictures at Roger's Tree Farm and some of the final product. I'm going to post some pictures for y'all to see.

One more thing. I want to ask everyone to please pray for Grayden. He has such a hard time with his breathing from infections that just won't see to go away. He was put on breathing treatments twice a day. I really hope this give him some relief.
