I've been through something like this before and I asked the dr's office if this was the same thing and she said "no". This time it's different. At least the radiologist will read the test results and tell me what they say before I leave the facility on Monday. I won't have to wait. I guess because it's considered a "diagnostic" test as opposed to a "screening" test. At first I was worried and nervous and sick to my stomach. My mother had a breast removed and of course my mind went to the worst place. Today, I am much calmer, now that I've had some time to absorb everything.
There have been some good things, lest you think life is all doom and gloom. We spent Sunday afternoon at WoodsEdge Farm (I'd link it but I'm at work and blogger doesn't play nice with our browser). They have llamas, alpacas and yaks. I took my spinning wheel and Kate took her loom and we sat on the porch and spent some quality time with the lovely fall weather and some soft as a cloud alpaca roving.
My brother and his family came as well and I taught my niece and nephew how spinning wheels work. Maggie (who is 12) picked up the idea fairly well and seemed to like it. Daniel (who is 7) just wanted to treadle fast enough to achieve lift off. He couldn't have cared less about the fiber, just the movement of the wheel.
The alpacas were friendly (we were feeding them) and it was so cool to see a whole herd of llamas wandering from pasture to pasture. You usually see one or two at a show but a whole herd! They were majestic.
The shy stars of the day were the yaks. And I mean shy. They were coming out of their enclosure and heard us walking over and literally ran away. It was interesting to watch something that large run away from us. I got a few photos but mostly of yaks running away. As we were leaving, I spotted the youngsters in their pen and tried to take a photo of them. I heard (and then saw) what I think may have been Mama in the enclosure and she was making noises of displeasure so I backed off. She is considerably larger than me and there was only a board fence between us.
My brother and Pk were interested in the meat and so we bought some yak steak and some stew meat. Kate bought some burgers. Pk and Kate decided that while the meat was good, it wasn't good enough to justify the exhorbitant price.
I have photos of this beautiful day but they're home. Hopefully, we'll get home early enough tonight that I'll still have working brain cells and I'll share them.
So, as you can see, life goes on. It's not all good nor is it all bad, it just is.
