For the past few weeks we have been enjoying beautiful sunny afternoons, not too hot and not too cold,
just about right,
ok so that was yesterday and this is today…….
Rain, wind and with it came the cold they say tomorrow SNOW around the district….!
This time I hope they are wrong, winter is gone and I just want the beautiful spring day’s to come back and stay forever,
but its not always about we want is it??
Sometimes we don’t get a choice in what happens, life can sometimes throw a spanner in the works just to make you appreciate what you have….
I found a lump on my face about 12mths ago, I went to the local Dr to have it checked only to be told it was “normal”.
I thought it was strange at the time but maybe I was quite happy for it to be “normal”.
Normal’s good , Right!
Quite a few months later whilst at my Son’s youngest boy’s Naming day, my son noticed the lump on my face. (I was kind of impressed that he noticed it.)and he asked me what it was..
Its funny how I hadn’t paid it much attention, of course, until it stood out to someone else, that meant it had grown.
but then and there it felt HUMUNGUS, (which of course It wasn’t quite as bad as it felt).
Anyhow on return from our weekend away I straight away made an appointment with a Dr (Not the same Dr mind you) to have it checked.
The Dr straight away brought in another Dr to look at “my Lump” and was told it was either a cysts or “something else” , at this point I proceeded to cry like a baby.
I was sent for an Ultrasound, and then while there I had to have a needle biopsy.
I was sooo scared.
Finally the day came for the result’s.
Yes it was a tumour in my Parotid gland
No it wasn’t cancerous
“Yay” but it still has to be removed as it can’t be trusted to be left alone.
Off I went to the specialist for him to sit there and tell me all the Bad things,
Yada Yada Yada,
I had planned to be slightly humorous and ask him would it be possible to have a face lift at the same time but he went into serious Dr mode and so I sheepishly sat there and just listened.
Today I got the phone call to say that the Operation will proceed next Wednesday.
I cried and cried and cried.
I am scared, but this is one of those things that needs to be done,
so I’m going to face it “Hahaha” head on…..
There are so many people out there who have way worse things to face than I do.
Today even though the rain was coming down, I ventured down town as I had a very special parcel to Post to my wonderful cousin who even though we haven’t really grown up knowing each other , I feel that perhaps she may be a Kindred spirit…….
I can show what is in the parcel as she already knows what’s inside.
My flowering hanging Garden pendant,
Very befitting I think as Jodie Owns her very own Florist Shop. She deals with the beauty of flower’s every day.
The story’s she tell about some of her customer’s pull at the heart strings.
I can still hear the rain falling outside so it time to go to bed and listen to the Rhythm of the falling Rain.
