Sorry, no cards or projects today. Just some life matters :) I will post some teacher’s gifts tomorrow :)
I know…I’ve been MIA for a week. Things have just been crazy here in the Holston household. My youngest son had his hand operated on two Thursday’s ago. Not one but two cysts were removed and sent for review. The pathology report said that the cysts were “vascular malformations”. What does THAT mean? Even the surgeon is baffled. We figure they don’t know and placed a big fancy name on it. Adam’s cast was removed last week. Well, his hand is developing yet another “knot”. It is very large and painful for him. I’m a wreck…that’s my baby! So back to the lab for blood test we went this morning. Tests came back normal – no infections (good). But then what is it? Our appt. with the doctor is Monday. Of course, the surgeon is on vacation for two weeks, so we see another one in the same office. For now, prayers are much welcome!
On a lighter note, we attended a family reunion in West Virginia. It was the 100th gathering of the Mann family. Isn’t that amazing?! That’s my husband’s grandmother’s family. She was the 9th child of 13. It’s a HUGH gathering! We camped in a tent for the weekend, visited with family, met new cousins, ate good food, played games, had fireworks, roasted marshmallows, hiked the mountain and returned home absolutely exhausted! Now, I’m ready for a vacation! :) Isn’t that how it usually goes? The mountains are beautiful and the fact that it is the site of the original homestead makes it all the more special. We will return again next year.
Thanks for letting me ramble today. I needed to. The mojo just hasn’t been flowing lately and now you know why. I’ll post a couple of recent end-of-the-year teacher’s gifts then, hopefully, mojo will make an appearance and I’ll have something new to share :)
