Good morning Ingrid, Tom, Judi and all.
Not much planned right now...maybe a trip to the community pool around 9 am.
Have a good day...whatever you've got planned.

I had to drag myself out of bed early for golf this AM. I sure hope I can find that elusive good swing. It showed up a few times on Monday, but I need more than that. :lol: Have a good day.

Good Morning!
Couldn't sleep so I just got up and doing some chores around the house.
Thank you all for the kind words, prayers, thoughts. It means so much!
Ken said the biopsy was brutal, they numb your neck with lidocaine injections then take a series of plugs from the nodule. He said it is just human reaction to protect your neck and flinch, so it was painful.
He called me after to let me know he was done, they were delayed 2 hours for the procedure so he was there a long time. Then apparently, he passed out in his car :shock: . He said after we hung up, he felt weird/woozy and next thing he knew he woke up maybe 15 min later and felt better (thank God in the hospital parking lot and in the car with the A/C on) Scary! That is so unlike him. I think this really has him freaked out. They said results in 3-5 business days and we leave tomorrow. Someone had asked....about the trip.....
We are going to a wedding in the UK, Dave & Susan from the UK, who we met in AUA...their daughter is getting married. We would not miss it for the world. Ken said if we are going over the pond, we need to see my buddy Mike in Germany. Mike was one of our groomsmen. He is on a DoD project rebuilding the high school in Germany that Ken and Mike graduated from...pretty cool. So this is a fun trip and we are looking forward to it.
someone else asked about my parents....they are 81, turning 82 soon.
Lots to get done today, cleaning, packing, getting everything organized for my MIL to take care of the kids.
Meal planning, carpools all scheduled, etc.....worst time of the year to be traveling.
Again, I cannot thank you all enough for the kind words, thoughts and prayers. I feel so blessed to have this support network of "people you don't even know on the internet" :lol: :lol: Monkeys are the best even if others don't understand our connection!
