We interrupt this program...

I've often said I want to write a book about my life in the sandwich generation, but I'm too busy living it. Thus, faithful readers, has been my plight recently as I've tried, without much luck, to keep my blogspot current.


In between babysitting two precious grandchildren about 4 days a week and helping my mom get around (she's just past her first anniversary of widowhood and suffering from macular degeneration), and all the other normal things we do in life, I've had two surgeries on my arm recently.


Well, it was supposed to be ONE surgery...I thought I was just having a small cyst removed from the crook of my right arm. So, extremely annoyed with this little life interruption, I had the procedure done and thought that was the end of it. Much to my surprise, when I went for the follow-up appointment, three white coats entered the room and advised me that the biopsy showed they needed to go back in and remove more tissue. (Groan)

The second time I had a general anesthesia so I had a chance to get a good "nap"! Today I go for the follow-up, and I'm fully expecting a good lab report so I can get back to my life between the buns, and sharing some of it with you. I'm very much looking forward to deepening my blogger friendships as well. Thanks for bearing with me!

I suppose that life is what happens while we're busy planning the chapters of our books.
And that's why 'blogs' have become so interesting today. They allow us glimpses into the author's life between the chapters.
Thanks for sharing and may God bless you in the midst of your sandwich and your chapters!

Thank you for your thoughts! The stitches were removed the other day with barely a wince from me (didn't hurt that the doctor young and cute) but no lab report yet. He assured me though that he felt everything was fine. Every day the 4 inch incision looks a little better, so I think I'm on my way to putting this behind me!
