I also added some fabulous earrings and a Bear necklace. In my Etsy site I added more cell phone charms, an awesome frog necklace with a matching bracelet, as shown below for a previous blog post. I also relisted some items that expired, check it out. Look for the beaded spiders - ooh. On my Artfire site I added many choices of cell phone charms, click it to see the options. . And last but not least I added a lot of new earrings and a few necklaces to my silk fair site. Check it out if you have not already.

Back in Town-Diagnosis

Hey after being at the Mayo clinic all week, we are back in town. They did tons of test and procedures. They have come up with some answers, but not all. The specialist said that she would not necessarily call it Cancer, but that she thinks he has some obscure kind, not identified yet, of Lymphoma. They also found a bacteria living in his gut that was spreading the disease to other areas instead of just inside of his intestines. It is proliferating, I think was the word she used. He is on a four pack of antibiotics and such to get rid of that and hopefully stop the spreading or proliferating. She has sent all of the findings to our Doctor at the
U of Washington, and said that he needs surgery right away. Hopefully we will be able to schedule that without too much of a delay or a hassle. We did find out that he has been misdiagnosed for 7 years by more then one Doctor. If after the surgery the masses of lymph growths come back then they will consider him as having Castleman disease and then he will need radiation/chemo. Lets hope the surgery does a good enough job to tide him over for awhile, he is not ready for Chemo, or Radiation. I am so glad we went to the Mayo clinic, it was quite the adventure, but they were so willing to help and find answers - it was like having a Doctor that cared. Isn't that what we all want, someone to care for us and our family like we care for them.
Thanks everyone for your prayers and loving thoughts. It is always helpful in times like these.

Waiting Room

Hi Everyone,
My daughter & I have been sitting in the waiting room all afternoon waiting for (Dad- my husband), we took a break for lunch. He should be out in about an hour. They just let us know that they finished with his Colonoscopy, we only have to wait a little longer. It is hard to entertain an 8yr old when she is bored out of her mind. lol - She got tired of doing all of the things we brought to do in the waiting room. Good thing she is a good kid, and that they have computers. She is on a Hanna Montana site, doing a manicure. Well I know we will be going out for dinner tonight, my husband has not eaten in days and was starving when he went in for his procedure. He is planning on eating dinner, then a really early breakfast. He can't eat after 6:00 am because he has an MRI tomorrow. We have an appt Friday night (tomorrow) to hopefully go over the three days worth of tests and procedures. They will hopefully have answers and solutions, and they will let us know if we will get to go home on Saturday or if we are staying until next week.

Mayo Clinic

Hey we flew out of town to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for most of the week. They offered an appointment to my husband, we are hoping for the best. So my husband, our 8yr old and I, all made arrangements and took off with one week notice. We were at the airport yesterday at 1:00 pm- the flight left at 3:10pm from Seattle. We flew into St Paul -Minnesota approx 8:30 and we were due to fly out to Rochester at approx 10:25. The plane coming in before us was so late it delayed our flight an entire hour. We did not get to leave for Rochester until 11:25, we arrived approx 12:35 and it was snowing. By the time we got bags, taxi & checked in - got ready for bed, it was 2:00 a.m. My husband had a 7:00 appt, we all woke up at 6:00 for his appt. So we are very tired.
It went great, they are very nice, helpful & they are doing alot of tests that were not previously done and some that need to be redone. We have appts, procedures & test scheduled for the next three days. Friday in the evening will be the big day, to tell us if we go home, or stay longer. They will hopefully have answers and help for him. My husband has been sick for seven years and this is his last shot for help. We have tried everything in Seattle and this is the best in the USA. Wish us the best and pray for him, but things are looking up. As long as we can get thru all of the tests - he is so tired of being poked and prodded and of course is a male and we know how well they do when they are sick. :(
