So, my mom got the results back on the biopsy and it turned out that the thing next to her nose was actually nothing. Which, thank goodness that was what it turned out to be because I was all prepared to go into nurse-aid mode and to take time off from work and just generally freak out. So, I’m glad that she’s okay and it turned out that my mom is fine.
Now, instead I got my eye exam yesterday and the doctor who did the exam flashed a light in both of my eyes for a long time. This normally would be quick, but he kept on scanning that intense light from one side to the other and this went on for five minutes or more.
By the end it felt like I had several flash photographs done right in my eyeball. I kept blinking to try to make the light dissipate but it didn’t work that well. He then asked me if I had glaucoma in my family which I do, my mom’s father had it. He said that the air pressure test (where they attack you with puffs of air right in your eyeball… it’s a form of torture!) was too high so I’m going to be seeing a specialist to see what they say. Oh, and my optic nerve is too large, and irregular, so they need to check that out too.
I scheduled an appointment as soon as I can to make sure that I bite this in the butt as well.
Of course, with this being Thanksgiving you have to say what you’re Thankful for. It’s just what you do on a day like today, you have to remember what it is in life that you appreciate. I’m thankful for my mom’s health and that the scare of cancer is gone and that’s a lot to be thankful for. I give thanks to many things I have, even if they may be taken away from me for moving to another place. I’m also thankful for my job that I have, my car that I recently did an oil changed and rotated the tires, my work I do is something I love, my family, my co-workers who make coming to work and massaging even more fun, and most of all, the man.
My fiancée who keeps me sane, puts up with me when I’m feeling crazy, stressed, or just tired, he’s there for me. He always tells me how beautiful I am even if I don’t feel it. I’m thankful for finding love even though I wasn’t looking for it, and I fought it in the beginning, I’m glad I gave in because I knew I loved him from the moment I saw him.
