So i can't wait to see 3 of my Fav TV shows. Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and the spinoff of GA Private Practice. I thought i would post the promos here for anyone that is interested! Desperate Housewives:
OK i have lots of stuff to update everyone on so i will just do it all in one email!
Friday i took Chloie to the Dr to gt her paper for pre-school signed and because she was still sick. So Dr Smoot checks her out and of course she has another ear infection. I just knew she had one. She constantly gets them in her left ear but doesn't complain. So the Dr gives us antibiotics and explains that for some reason when Chloie gets a cold it is settling in her ear and the fluid isn't draining off like it should causing an ear infection. So we go back in 3wks to see if it is gone. Also we were given an inhaler. Now keep in mind the past 3 visits 2 non sick just check ups the Dr has heard some wheezing. Of course Friday it was worse because of the congestion. I have asthma so she is watching it and will reevaluate when we go back in 3wks. So in 3wks we will find out if she has asthma or needs more evaluating, and a possible referral to an ENT to talk about tubes for her ears.
So today i go and take care of finishing up paperwork and paying for pre-school. I have been saying i am so ready for her to start. Last night though while Cory and were talking about it i just started crying. I was realizing for the last 3yrs and 8months Chloie has been w/me basically 24/7. Everyday i wake up and she is #1 on my mind and plan my day for her. I can't believe it is time to start pre-school. I know it will be good for her but it just makes me a little sad.
I was feeling so anxious even walking in there to pay and finish registering with Chloie holding on tightly to my hand. But the second we walked in there we were greeted by one of the teachers. Evidently she could tell it was our first time for pre-school and how we were both feeling. She came said hi to me then bent down and was talking to Chloie. She asked Chloie her name, how old she was and if she wanted to come look at a classroom. Chloie let go of me and went right w/her. I felt a huge relief when that happened. I have been trying to prepare myself. Heather know VBS this summer was horrible at drop off time. All she did was cry! So keep yor fingers crossed next Tuesday goes good at drop off!
We are leaving to go out of town Thursday evening and will be back sometime Monday. Hope everyone has a great Labor day weekend!!!
We hear a lot about breast cancer these days. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes, and there are millions living with it in the U.S. today alone. But did you know that there is more than one type of breast cancer?
I didn’t. I thought that breast cancer was all the same. I figured that if I did my monthly breast self-exams, and found no lump, I’d be fine.
Oops. It turns out that you don’t have to have a lump to have breast cancer. Six weeks ago, I went to my OB/GYN because my breast felt funny. It was red, hot, inflamed, and the skin looked…funny. But there was no lump, so I wasn’t worried. I should have been. After a round of antibiotics didn’t clear up the inflammation, my doctor sent me to a breast specialist and did a skin punch biopsy. That test showed that I have inflammatory breast cancer, a very aggressive cancer that can be deadly.
Inflammatory breast cancer is often misdiagnosed as mastitis because many doctors have never seen it before and consider it rare. “Rare” or not, there are over 100,000 women in the U.S. with this cancer right now; only half will survive five years. Please call your OB/GYN if you experience several of the following symptoms in your breast, or any unusual changes: redness, rapid increase in size of one breast, persistent itching of breast or nipple, thickening of breast tissue, stabbing pain, soreness, swelling under the arm, dimpling or ridging (for example, when you take your bra off, the bra marks stay – for a while), flattening or retracting of the nipple, or a texture that looks or feels like an orange (called peau d’orange). Ask if your GYN is familiar with inflammatory breast cancer, and tell her that you’re concerned and want to come in to rule it out.
There is more than one kind of breast cancer. Inflammatory breast cancer is the most aggressive form of breast cancer out there, and early detection is critical. It’s not usually detected by mammogram. It does not usually present with a lump. It may be overlooked with all of the changes that our breasts undergo during the years when we’re pregnant and/or nursing our little ones. It’s important not to miss this one.
Inflammatory breast cancer is detected by women and their doctors who notice a change in one of their breasts. If you notice a change, call your doctor today. Tell her about it. Tell her that you have a friend with this disease, and it’s trying to kill her. Now you know what I wish I had known before six weeks ago.
You don’t have to have a lump to have breast cancer.
P.S. Feel free to steal this post too. I’d be happy for anyone in the blogosphere to take it and put it on their site, no questions asked. Dress it up, dress it down, let it run around the place barefoot. I don’t care. But I want the word to get out. I don’t want another young mom — or old man — or anyone in between — to have to stare at this thing on their chest and wonder, is it mastitis? Is it a rash? Am I overreacting? This cancer moves FAST, and early detection and treatment is critical for survival.
Just wanted to share some pics from this weekend and today. Saturday we took Chloie to Libbi Lou. Today I took Chloie & Wade to the park & while we were ther snapped a few pics! (Wade is the little boy i keep during the day)
I am so excited. My Princess Chloie has been gone to her Nana & Papaw Marc's house Sunday till present. She has been busy playing with her 11yr old Uncle Zack & 9yr old Aunt Sarah. They have stayed busy doing swimming lessons, jumping on the trampoline, playing outside, dress up etc.... She most likely will be coming home a day early! Tomorrow!!! I can't wait!! This is the longest she has ever been away from Cory and I! I think it was harder on us than her!
Another exciting thing happened today is when i went to the Post Office to get my mail there was my Disney Vacation DVD & my Passporter! For those who don't know what a a Disney Passporter is check out www.passporter.com So now sometime this week or weekend we get to sit down watch it and start planning our Thanksgiving 2008 Disney Trip! This is our 1st Disney trip and we are very excited!
