Pictures and more.............

First off let me say I am sorry if anyone receives a card from me that says postage due. I gave my daughter 12 cards to mail for me and the money to buy stamps for them. She walks into post office puts cards in out of town box and then goes to counter and purchases stamps. When I asked her if she mailed cards she said yes. I asked were they stamped, she says, yea mom you put stamps on them. I do not remember stamping them if I did. Only 1 has been returned and I personally put a stamp on it and mailed it. If you receive a card and it says postage due, please let me know and I will send you the postage amount or a stamp, whichever you prefer. In the mean time I will send out another card and this time I will put a stamp on it personally. Kids, grrrrrrrr.
Above you will see pictures of the snow we had, then a few days later there's no snow and it's warm enough for the kids to go outside and ride their scooters. Then there's one of me since I lost the 25 pounds. I look horrible in the face. Dark circles and baggy eyes, yuck. Excuse the nightgown I am wearing, lol. But it's cotton and very comfy and when I don't feel well I like wearing it. I also have the same one in red. So does my daughter Emma. I bought her the same ones for christmas. Of course hers is a couple sizes smaller.
Ok, some of you have asked what is going on with me, so here's what has happened so far. They cannot do a needle biopsy. After 2 more mammograms and 2 more ultrasounds it has been determined that it is 2 lympnodes that are enlarged and outter layer of them doesn't look well and they are seriously full of blood. The specialist said a needle puncture could cause alot of bleeding and cause clotting, which is dangerous. So he recommends surgery to remove the 2 lympnodes. Tomorrow I go see the breast specialist again and discuss the surgery and when I want to have it done. I want it done right away, to get it over with. I want to know if it is cancer or not. So, tomorrow is going to be a very stressful day for me. I'll be sure to let you all know what is decided. I'd better go now. My baby granddaughter is trying to climb up on my lap saying, Up mommom up. So mommom has to hold her, lol. Take care and I will try to get to your blogs today.
