Thank you. I do want to say that it is not illness.

Whatever it is that is causing you trouble, I'll be praying that it resolves soon and all will be well with you and yours, my friend.

Today is a crazy day for me because DH has to help move at work and I have a cake to finish by this afternoon, but her BF said they will keep me posted and I will get there as soon as possible. I know surgery isn't fun, but you don't know the relief that is flowing through me at the moment. This almost doesn't fit in the vent category, but since I was posting here I thought I should update you all. Thanks once again for your thoughts and prayers.
I've missed a lot since I've been at my mom's but I was very worried to read of your daughter's illness, Laurie. Has she had surgery yet? It's just awful being the one in the waiting room, isn't it? Almost as bad as being the one in the surgical suite. Please update us on how she's doing and know that she (and you) and in my thoughts and prayers. (I know your knee is still acting up so try to rest it as much as you can during this.) A big hug to you both.
Terry

Dina, I've been wondering if the results of Justin's thyroid scan are in yet. You must be very nervous about this, especially since all the tests and appointments take sooooo long. I've been thinking about Justin every day and hoping that his thyroid tests all come back normal. Please update us when you can and remember that you have a lot of friends thinking about ya'll.

I threw him in the tub and proceeded to scrub the carpet just outside the bathroom door when again I heard "Ew! Ew! Ew!". He had gone in the tub and was standing up trying to avoid it. After I got him, the carpet, and the tub scrubbed of course, the new baby decided to explode out of her diaper, followed by another exploded diaper from my son that ended up all over the carpet. It's a nice day outside, maybe I'll just send them both outside naked and keep a hose running...
I know it's probably over now, but when I read this my heart really went out to you. All of us moms have been there at one time or another and it's awful!! (Way worse than puking kids, IMO.) But it's especially tough when you have a newborn also. I know you are probably sleep deprived right now and the last thing you want to see is poop everywhere. If it's any consolation, I'm absolutely sure moms get extra karma for times like these.

Thank you Terry. Justin's results came back normal. The thyroid scan showed nothing abnormal. It's a good thing because Justin won't be dealing with hormone imbalances or anything of that sort. The problem is that we're back to square one. The endocrinologist told us today that Justin's mass is higher than the thyroid so at this point, he just said that it was an unknown mass. He assured me that it's not malignant but only a biopsy will tell. He scheduled us for Thursday morning to see a surgeon that specifically performs throat/neck surgeries. I am praying and hopeful that this new surgeon will give us a definite answer. Thank you all for your continued prayers.

On top of it all, my daughter just came down with the flu and is feeling quite ill. She'll be staying home tomorrow. Sigh!!!!!!!!

Well, I'm really relieved it wasn't his thyroid and it's functioning normally. I'm glad you're seeing a head and neck surgeon, too. There are so many nerves in that area that it's definitely better to have a specialist rather than a general surgeon if you can get one. I hope he/she can tell you more and is someone you feel confidence in. It must be so nerve-wracking for you right now. Lean on friends and family and try to remember that this, too, shall pass. In the mean time, I'll keep you and Justin in my thoughts and prayers and your DD, too. (I sure hope you don't get the flu, Dina. That would be awful!)

Some of us Dads have been there as well. I know I have. One day you will be able to look back and rib the kids about the messy times they made for you. In the meantime, let your love and compassion override you revulsion. And pray for strength.
