......aaaaand the fun continues.

Well I guess Siena won't get a "Perfect Attendance" award at school this year. Yes, she's been sick with a stomach bug already. Or at least I hope that's all it is. I never got an answer from the doctor as to what it really was. She threw up in the middle of the night on Wed. & continued off & on until the morning. Never a fever & never acting too sickly other than the vomiting. She's doing okay now & of course just as sassy as ever.

Last week proved to be another strike when we had to take Mark to the ER for his severe neck pain. We were at the doctors office for it 1st but they thought the cyst in his neck was causing his pain & could have spread inflammation to his brain so they sent him over to the hospital.
After spending 5 hours in the ER it turned out that it still seems to only be the cyst but it's just so inflamed that it's causing pressure on his nerves. He's now set for day surgery next week to have it removed. Okay....let's back up a little here for some history...He's had this cyst for like, what, a year or longer? Who do you think has told him to get it taken out (months ago) because it would never really go away. That's right...yours truly. A sebaceous cyst won't go away until it's completely removed. It's just like a balloon. You can take the air out but the balloon is still there. Have I grossed anyone out yet? Sorry...being in the medical field for over 20 something years, it just doesn't phase me. But men.....ugh! Don't they know that women know best?
