fri-sun report

Well, here’s a quick post–

Terry and Jessye are having a good time in New Orleans with the marching band. Our high school’s band won the marching contest they attended, and pretty much swept all the categories with top honors. They are supposed to be featured on the BCS game’s halftime show tomorrow night (televised)! Don’t know what network’s carrying it, but kick off is at seven pm.  (Ohhhh!  Check out the picture at the top of my blog! I told Jessye it looked like there had been an unfortunate run-in with a flute player!)

Meanwhile, Maggie is sick today. We went to the 8:30 service. As far as I knew she was just sleepy and cranky. But, by mid-Sunday school hour, a children’s ministry volunteer mom brought Maggie to me in my Sunday school class. She didn’t feel well. So, of course, we went home instead of staying to sing at the eleven o’clock service.  She has 99. 7 for a temp. And, is now complaining of an earache and pain in her jaw and ear when swallowing? I’m guessing ear infection. But, we’ll go in and let the pediatrician rule on that tomorrow. I’ve called Patsy to let her know already so I’d be able to relax about that tonight. I knew if I didn’t I wouldn’t be able to rest just from hating to have to call in. I have a wonderful supervisor, but I just always dread having to call in and say that I won’t be there to do my part.  Ya know?

Tonight is a big dance for Jessye and her band buds. It’s nice to know her Daddy will be chaperoning that event.   = )

I had a fun, fun fortieth birthday! Patsy and DeLois and Beverly and Scott decked my reception area out with all the traditional over the hill signage. I arrived to quite a display. And, hot breakfast, and gifts, and another fellow, Harold–His wife baked me a delicious cake with cinnamon and pecans swirled inside.  Then, at lunch time, Scotty watched the front desk while my department took me out to AMERIGO for lunch. I had my favorite! Shrimp scampi! Almost got backed over by a careless driver in the parking lot before I went in. That kinda pushed my nerves on over the top.   Mama and Susan met us there, too! So, that was really cool.  What’s NOT really cool is the reason Mama and Susan were convenient to the area around lunchtime. More on that in a sec. 

After work Maggie and I went home, I spiffed up a little, and then she got to go play at the Anthony’s. John watched Maggie along with Dylan and Landon) while Vicki and I went to a Premier leadership supper! The event was fun. Supper was good, and the speakers were highly motivating.  I heard from many good friends with well-wishes for a happy 40th! So, I just really had a good, good day! 

Now–re: Mama:  My mom had a consultation with a surgeon Friday morning because her recent mammogram turned up something that was abnormal–Something that was not on her mammogram last year. Turned out they actually ended up doing a needle biopsy late Friday afternoon. We should have lab results early this week. Originally they told her it looked like DCIS…(I think those are the initials?) Whatever they are, that equals early breast cancer contained to a milk duct. If that’s what it is, that’s supposed to be easy to remove. (???) Whatever! A matter for concern, for sure!  After meeting with the surgeon, he told Mama that 80% of what he was seeing on her mammogram pics turns out to be benign, and nothing to be concerned about. I like that idea MUCH BETTER.   But, we’ll find out results soon. She wasn’t supposed to be having a needle biopsy on Friday. There was just a cancellation, so Mama got the opportunity to take that vacated time slot. I’m glad she was able to get that procedure done without much waiting at all.  Please keep her in your prayers. She’s doing pretty well healing from the procedure, by the way.  It will be good to know some results.

Okay, Maggie needs her Mama…so, I’ll stop here. I hope we’ll get to rest tonight. I hope her ear doesn’t keep her in so much discomfort that she can’t get good sleep.

Goodnight friends!

    Man, what a week…one child recovering from that nasty flute accident (HA!) and one sick (sorry!). I hate that they didn’t show their band during the game.

    Way to go, Jessye! We so know what it is like to be involved in the “music/band” experience! Nothing like it! We are SO proud of you!
    Love, your Nashville family!!

    Hey! Sorry bought that flute stuck in your ‘noggin. I’ll bring you flowers.

    Much Love,

    I watched the game last night in hopes of seeing Jessye. I still can’t figure out why the show’s producers thought we would rather watch the OSU and LSU bands.

    Worry not – I’ve fired off a letter. Next year will be better.

    Love ya,
