I vaguely remember telling someone that I would post a picture showing what I mean when I say that I have to "mow the trees" in my yard, so here it is.
Sunrise from the parking lot at work.
Alex's procedures yesterday. They went very well. Visually, everything is fine so we just have to wait for biopsy results, which we also expect will be normal. They were just done as a routine part of the scopes. Again, I'm not going into details about what is going on with him, but generally speaking we are trying to rule some things out, which it appears that we did.
|Gotta' love those post-op popsicles.|
After not eating for about 36 hours, we were hungry. He chose Spangles - and I didn't complain.
Later, we decided to go out for a bit. We grabbed something to eat for supper, stopped at the library, then headed to the pool.
|Yup. Same kid who had a colonoscopy and|
endoscopy 10 hours before...
|He *wanted* his ears like that.|
Today was a rougher day. I received news through facebook that Jared's buddy, who has been battling brain cancer since last fall, had passed away. Jared was already back at his father's house when I found out, so I let him tell him - because honestly, I couldn't. Then I found out later that he hadn't actually passed, but things were looking very bleak. Needless to say, he has been on my mind all day long.
Then The Dude and I went and met with Mortgage Lady, hoping to get some good news. My credit scores were where they needed to be to be pre-approved for a loan, and I had all of the documentation that I needed. When she pulled my official credit report, there were some issues. In the grand scheme of things, they're not major issues, but they're bad enough that it's going to be at least another month - or maybe two - until we can move on and get the pre-approval. I had gotten my hopes up, and when I left her office I felt totally deflated. Honestly, I still do.
|Just some of the paperwork so far.|
But, it could be worse.
One step at a time. That's all I can do.
