I’m tired and grumpy and in pain, but it does not matter because MY MOM is doing really well after her cancer surgery yesterday. Yay!!!
She had her major surgery yesterday because she had ovarian cancer. They did a hysterectomy to remove the two tumors that were on her ovaries, and they also removed 3 more tumors that they found on the right side (not sure at this point where these were attached), and they removed the layer of fat that covers up the organs in the abdomen, because cancer cells tend to want to hide in there... and all the rest is 'all clear'. She will need more chemo, but after that she should be in the clear.
She is one brave woman, my mom. 73 years old and what a trooper she is!
She is recovering well at the hospital, and she will be home in a few days, and I will be looking after her. Nurse Nat ready for action!
Meanwhile, I have a nasty toothache that started yesterday at the hospital when I ate a sandwich while mom was in the OR. I had made myself some food to take along, and the bread that I use has a mixture of seeds on the crust. Well, one of those little tiny seeds ended up making its way between two of my molars.
It wasn’t bad at first, and I tried rinsing it out at the hospital but I had no floss on me and no toothbrush, so I figured it would have to wait until I got home. Well, by the time I got home last night, needless to say that this little pesky seed had managed to get in deeper and started to aggravate the nerve on my one tooth. It got pretty bad last night.
I took some Tylenols and they knocked me out for awhile, but then they wore off, of course… so this morning I called my dentist and they have a short work-day on Saturdays and they were swamped with emergencies, so they could not fix that tooth for me today, it has to wait until Monday afternoon.
So I continued trying to get that seed out, and I’m not sure if I did it or not. I can still feel something in there, but the nerve is so upset now, I’m leaving it alone and we’ll see how tomorrow goes. I took more Tylenols and at least the pain isn’t shooting in my left eye anymore. And if I don’t talk, then it’s not too bad. So I’m hanging in there and being quiet (ok, mumbling and cussing under my breath LOL)
Will you look at this:
This is my new ‘mini Moo’ card design for my brand new line of ONE OF A KIND/LIMITED EDITION “OPULENT” high end jewelry “NG Originals”.
Cute design huh? Look at my Studio and Shop below (and look at my Artfire Rapid Cart on the RIGHT SIDE column), you will see some of the pieces I have already listed and the banners I’ve made for each online venue.
I figured that while I’d be looking after mom and taking over the chores she was helping me with (she was a huge help, believe me), I will most likely not have time to do a lot of work in my studio, so this way, I can do some One of a Kind pieces while keeping her company in my parent’s living room in their suite in our house, as I can use my little toolbox to bring over what I need and make some wire wrapped jewelry (mainly). It will be nicer that way for her. She won’t be able to come up the stairs for a few weeks at least, so that way, I can keep her company and make some jewelry at the same time.
Enjoy the weekend!
