Thank You

Friendships are those fruits gathered from trees planted
in the rich soil of love, and nurtured with tender
care and understanding. These trees are
never subjected to drought.

Alma L. Weixelbaum

Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your heartfelt prayers and support. It all went well at the doctor's office, and he somewhat put me at ease. The goiter is pressing against my esophagus, but not to the point where surgery is imminent. It doesn't interfere with my swallowing, breathing, and hasn't changed my voice. Perhaps medication will shrink it. I'll be altogether at ease once all these tests are done, and I have my answers.  I know that your prayers are helping.

And then, there was the issue with my phone. When I went to work on Monday, lo and behold, my phone sat right on my desk where I left it.  Someone took the turtle food off my desk, but left the phone.  Whew!!!  What a relief that was.  Why would they take turtle food you may ask?  Heck, why did they steal one of our baby frogs?  They take just to take....and this is staff I am talking about, the weekend maintenance workers. 

Again, I know your prayers and positive thoughts were with me this week.  And thank you for your friendship. You all mean the world to me. 


  1. There's a high black market demand for turtle food, you know. WTF?

  2. Maybe they want to try to feed the baby frog the turtle food??

  3. Oh sweet Mary.....I'm so sorry I haven't popped in here sooner.....I'm sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.....Thyroid issues are actually not that uncommon in women our age.......I know this will get straightened out with yours. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

    We have been home just a few days and am so busy just getting things put away and orgainzed and put away that I have not had time to email....I will soon though.



  4. -chuckle- Took turtle food and left phone! Oh well, good for you, anyway.

    And the comments already here, are so cute! ,-)


  5. So glad you're finding the answers and your mind is slowly being put at ease. Very weird over the turtle food....I love what Debra said ; )

  6. Human mind is indead a mystery. Sometimes even turtle food seems worth stealing! Great news! I know that the medication will work and you will never have to deal with that again.
    Love and light!

  7. Sending you out virtual (((hugs)))Mary. See that your week began on a "high note". :0)
    Wishing you all the best as the week continues. (((hugs)))Pat

  8. You mean the world to me Mary and I'm so happy the Doc can now take charge and take care of you! :)

    And the turtle food-telephone debacle has me scratching my head? I gotta laugh though, maybe these workers forgot the peanut butter for their crackers and needed something to sprinkle on top...go figure! Humans are a crazy lot aren't they?

    Sending loving hugs and healing...
