Sister's Surgery

I am back from Virginia. I went out because my sister was having surgery this past Tuesday. They found a cyst on her thyroid. Thank God, it was benign. We (my entire family) were very worried, she is only 30, she should not be dealing with cancer at her age. It definitely made me grateful to God that as children, my sister and I never had any of these issues. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like for parents with sick children - how hard it must be.

Have to say the hospital staff were extra super nice to my sister, I've never seen such nice people (reminder to self to tell sister to maybe send a gift to her recovery team). One of the nurses even came by with ice cream in the afternoon after my sister's surgery because my sister had mentioned it before the surgery (how she loves ice cream). It was really sweet.

Now my poor Mother is taking care of the invalid (well not really invalid as much as groggy patient, hopped up on painkillers). Good luck with that Mum!

I return to stinky Arizona (the pilot on my Denver to Phoenix flight had the audacity to say "The great state of Arizona." hrmph!), with a sore throat, thank you Dad (smile).

Summer heat hitting you, need something to cool down with, like to try all things unique and unusual.....hit the Starbucks Happy Hour. Between May 7 - May 16, enjoy a half-price Frappuccino blended beverage at participating Starbucks in the afternoon - 3 to 5pm.

Does your hubby like Arizona that much that you can't talk him away?
