Thank you. I am still up and waiting. As if anyone is going to call me at 3 a.m.

Laurie, take care and listen to the doctor. Thinking of you.

Addie--you need to get some rest. I''ll take over pacing the floor for you now. Go lie down and try and get some rest, think positive thoughts. Wish I could be there with you. Channeling all the positive thoughts and love I can your way. {{{HUGS}}}

Thank you. I did get some sleep. I fell asleep about five this morning. Then my youngest called me to make sure I am all right. He is going to make some calls to some of his friends at Brigham's Hospital. They are connected with Mass General Hosp. It has been a number of years since he has had any patients at MGH.

What really sucks is that this is the weekend. And as anyone in the medical field, there is minimal staff on weekends. Just knowing that I have a place to turn to, has been a very comforting thought. Thank you all for being there for me. Now if I could just stop crying.

Still no news? We are all hoping and praying for you that it is benign. Hang in there Addie!

Oh Addie I'm so sorry. I am sure it felt good to actually talk to her. Once a plan is in place to do what needs to be done it is a little easier to sleep at night. I am praying for the doctors to have the wisdom to know and do what needs to be done. Also praying for all of you. Hang in there!

I'm so sorry. I hope all goes well for her.

I'm getting ready to go to the farmer's market and hopefully find some Kirby cucumbers. The pickles I made from regular cucumbers turned out soft. Have to figure out where I went wrong and fix it. I promised DH to make dill pickle soup this winter
