Three days later

So here I am at work three days later with my black eyes! Thank you all for your comments. I have been laughing the whole time. My eyes were so swollen yesterday morning that I could barely see out of my right eye. The swelling is coming to an end and it does not hurt as much anymore so I hope that the black and blue circles around my eyes will go away soon. The hardest thing about all of this is that we have our tournament games this weekend, one on Friday night and three games Sunday night and I have been told by my coach that if I play he is gonna stick me out in the outfield. UH Hello everything that goes out there are fly balls!!! I if I cant catch a throw from short stop do you think that I am gonna catch a fly ball that I will loose in the big bright lights??
I am sure that I will be fine I am not afraid of the ball so I want to play in my regular spot. I guess we will see.
Love to you all!!
P.S Thank you Grandma Lyn for the lovely card. You are so very thoughtful and I love you and Grandpa Bill so very much

I Broke my nose!!

So I broke my nose on Sunday in the last inning of our double header. So stupid. It was a routine play from short stop to second to get the out and I pulled my glove to soon and SMACK right between my eyes. I have a fracture but no displacement. I am starting with my right eye turning black and swelling up so that it is bugging the heck out of me. I got two stitches on the bridge of my nose and I will have to keep them in for 6 days. I just thought that I would share this with you all. I need to remember that I am not 18 anymore. One picture for you to see. I love you all.

Alive and kicking

So as I have stated before I hate being on the computer at home but feel so bad that you all post and I never do so I am going to post tonight!!

So raising three teenagers is becoming quite the challenge.. I have to give mom so so so much credit for not packing it all in and running far far away! I really feel like doing that most days. The farthest that I ever get is my bedroom.

Joey is getting bigger by the day and is pretty tall, long legs like his dad. I don't have to worry so much about him because he is Chris's son and I just have to deal with the normal teenage attitude and he gets the rest.

Tyler is doing well. Growing like a weed also. He is getting ready to go on a field trip tomorrow and he will not be back till Friday. This is a Learning field trip for his science class. He had a fun birthday and we took him to Dave and Busters for his birthday dinner. Had Cake and ice cream and opened his presents at the house. HE got a movie,a game for his X-box an RC truck Oreos and a digital camera. Here are a few pix.

Cody is well... Cody. He is struggling with his school work and hanging out with the wrong kids. I am getting ready to withdrawal him from school and send him to moms so that he doesn't end up getting arrested or jumped on his way home from school. The only thing that I can do for him right now is to get him out of here, change of atmosphere and I hope that being with Mom will help him realize that he is so much smarter and better than than the Jack A@# kids he has chosen to hang out with. I love him dearly but I am at a dead end.

Chris is in California for the next two days and I am missing him so much already. He is there for work learning about the new stuff that one of his vendors is coming out with. We went to Benson over the weekend and stayed at his parents house. I love going to their house, It is out in the middle of nowhere and it is so quiet and peaceful.

Chris and I bought a used piano and are looking forward to learning how to play it. I can still only play chop stix and Swans on a lake from our piano lessons that Sister Welch (I think that was her name) gave us when we were younger.

I love you all and I hope things are going good for all of you!!
Lots of hugs and kisses

I found the Pictures

Round Two Chemo

SO it is was my turn to be here at moms house to help her go through round two of her Chemo. We went to the cancer center today for her 10am appointment and Laura and Jared were still here with us.
We got started pretty quick with the pre meds, Benadryl, Tylenol and a Steroid I cant remember the name of. Laura stayed with us for about an hour an a half before she had to make her long drive home.
Mom did really well today, we were only there for about 4 & 1/2 hours. Mom read her book and I listened to my Ipod and really could not read my book because of the surroundings. It was hard to not watch the other people around and see them go through their treatment. It is nice to know that Mom will have someone there by her side for each treatment. There were about six other people in the room and only one other person had family with her.
We had a great day yesterday at the beach. Mom took Laura Jared and I to Cannon beach and we walked around to all the little shops and bought fun little treasures to mark this time of my part of her cancer treatment.
I look forward to being here with Mom and Grandma and Grandpa for the next week. They are so fun and so helpful. I love them so much.
I will post pix as soon as I find where Laura has saved them.
Love to you all.

Had to post

So for the last two weeks or so I have been reading every ones blogs and trying to see how everyone was handling their emotions. I have tried to be strong and tell my self that it is too early to over react. I need to wait to hear from the Dr. just how bad this really is. But then I have this overwhelming feeling come over me at any given moment of the day and I shed a few tears and I know that this is a serious situation and it is OK to let my guard down.
I went in to Hallmark to buy my Mothers day cards and I was there for about 5 minutes before I was balling after reading only one card. The girl that works there came up and said to me " Those cards can be pretty powerful huh" I just looked at her with big ol' tears and nodded.
I have told the boys what is going on and we have done some research together, but I think that the hardest part about telling them is to see the change in Cody. He has been so loving and tender to me that I have to take a step back and regroup. He is so concerned and anxious to know more as we all are.
I just want you all to know that I love you so much and I am grateful to have such a big loving family that will pull together in a time like this.

Mom, I love you and you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I will talk to you all on Friday!
I love you all

This is for Jill Pickle

Ok Ok, Here is my update!
I had my Hystorectomy on February 5th and I am now three days from my 6 week check up. Every thing went very well.The dr. made an incesion about 4 inches wide and took alook around. He removed my uterus and left my overies and tubes. They looked healthy so he left them in. That is a good thing as I will still be able to produce my own horomones. I am feeling great and I am looking forwared to getting back to playing softball and getting active again. I have been sitting around on my rump for to long. I still have a little tenderness around my incesion but other than that I think it was all worth it. I am excited to NEVER NEVER ever having another period again!
Chris has healed completly from his broken collar bone and was just released back to play ball and ride his dirt bike again. He is so excited that he is taking the boys out to ride and shooting tomorrow. I am not to thrilled about this but I don't get to have a say in it. Four boys against one. I LOOSE!!
I hope everyone is doing well. I love and miss all of you

Black Really?

Your color is black. The color of night. Serene and mysterious, black conjures up images of elegant evening gowns, dashing tuxedos, and gleaming limousines. Traditionally a symbol of success, black also represents power and an uncompromising demand for perfection. Not surprisingly, you tend to set challenging goals for yourself and do whatever it takes to achieve them — your strength of character is second to none. This unfaltering determination, along with your natural elegance, impresses people. But keep in mind that your personality might be intimidating to some. Try to temper your demanding side with a little softness — trust us, it won't kill you. Overall, though, black is the color of professionalism and achievement, which means it's clearly the color for you. Lisa, your true color is Black!

What a way to start the new year!!

Broken front tire of Chris's dirt bike!
So as I stated in the previous post, Chris and I went skiing for the first time (for me) and had no problems except for me falling and spraining my right thumb. On Sunday Chris went dirt bike riding with a friend of his from work. I got a call around 1:30 that Chris had a head on collision with a guy on a quad and to meet them at the emergency room. I got there and we waited around for about 5.5 hours to find out that Chris had broken his Collarbone on his left side. He is ok, will not need surgery. It will take about 6-8 weeks for him to recover from this break. I thought that I did everything around here by myself already. Boy was I mistaken. Now I really have to do it all. It is like having a toddler again. I have to get him dressed, tie his shoes( Double Knotted) Feed him, put him to bed, give him a shower. Good thing I like him!!!

For me I am going to have surgery on February5th at 12pm, I am finally going to have a historectomy!!! I cant wait. I am so tired of hurting. Give me a call if you wanna know more.

I love you all and miss you all so much!

HAPPY 2008 !!!!

Well here we go into to 2008!!! I hope it is a good one for everyone. WE love and miss all of you!!
