♥ May is Melanoma Awareness Month

On March 7, 2011, I go back to my skin cancer doctor for another mole mapping.  I pray that I won’t have anymore moles taken off, but I have a feeling she will be taking a few more off that she has been eyeing.

Every time I have a mole taken off, I am filled with anxiety.  I have had 2 Melanoma’s and worry that there are more hiding in my skin.  The secret to survival is to catch them in the early stages, which thankfully both of mine were.



♥ Serendipity

An aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.  To look for something, find something else, and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.

♥ Fate

I believe in fate…do you?

♥ Happy 14th Nicole

Happy 14th Birthday my little Ne-Ne!!  No matter how old you get, you will always be my little baby!!  I love you!!  ♥ Cake

My original due date for Nicole was March 2, 1997.  I was hopeful that this pregnancy was going to be easier then Alec & Courtney’s, but at 10 weeks along, I was place on bed rest.  I kept measuring a week larger then the due date, which prompted several ultrasounds to make sure everything was alright.  On February 18, 1997 I went into the hospital with severe back labor, which is when I found out Nicole was not in the correct position.  When I went into the hospital I was dilated to a 5 and 50% effaced, so I had to walk for an hour which only made my dilation a 6 and 75% effaced.  To help the dilation move along faster, the doctor on call shoved his fist up in me.  This my friends, hurt like a bitch, but it did move things along much faster.  Once they broke my water and hard labor started, I was not allowed any pain meds yet again.  Nicole was born in 2 1/2 hours at 4:49 am.  The doctor almost dropped her because she came out so fast with only 1 1/2 pushes.  She is my last labor of love for eternity!!  ♥

♥ I Feel You ♥

I can honestly say when I sense you, it always puts me in a wonderfully happy and at ease mood.  The times when I sense you are sad…I become sad.  I know it doesn’t make much sense, I am sorry.  I am sorry you are sad…I wish I could help.  I hope I never make you sad or upset, I want you to be happy and full of life when you think of me.

Trust me, when she is finally out of your heart, you will feel such a sense of well being and peace. She is so NOT worth your heartache.
