I have a praise report. My son's friend that had to evacuate because of the fire is fine. He was at school and was happy to report that his house was saved. Yahoo! When I picked up my son Brandon from school, I went on campus for the first time since I was in the hospital. Everyone was so happy to see me. I got to chat with my favorite teacher at the school (she knows my sons so well). She said that she has cancer cells in her uterus. Her doctor is going to laser the lining of her uterus the first week in December. Her name is Lindi, so please pray for this dear sister in Christ. Prayer is the best way to love all our brothers & sisters, so keep praying everyone!!!

Well, my day started early. I was awake at 6:30 am. I did not want to get up, but I did. I was scheduled to see my main surgeon, Dr. M., for a check up at 8:30 am. Well, I got showered and all dressed, got over to the office and found out my appointment had been canceled. Someone goofed. So they got me a new appointment for next Tuesday. It was sort of a big deal because Mark took time away from work to be able to come to the appointment with me, but these things happen so not worth it to squawk. When I went down the stairwell, I ran into Dr. G., the surgeon who actually put my bowel together. He is a very kind man.

I rested at home for a bit after the doctor and then decided to hit the mall before going to pick up Brandon from school. Brandon gets out before Eric, so I pick up Brandon and Mark picks up Eric on his way home from work. Anyway, I have started doing my Christmas shopping already. Both boys have their birthdays in December, so I have extra work to do at this time of year. Okay, so I went to the mall and I picked up a gift card for a family member and then I picked up this candle holder. I could not resist. It was 50% off and amber colored.

I got this at Bath & Body Works. The orange glow you see is a tea light. Below is how it looks in the dark.

Is it not gorgeous? I think this makes up for what happened at the doctor's office. LOL
