...or maybe it was just black nail polish.

I know half the people in the world have already figured out how to use Movie Maker but I've been a little behind the learning curve on this one.
I attended a workshop today where I learned digital storytelling using Movie Maker and geocaching. I am so excited to make all kinds of projects using our pictures. Woo hoo!
This is my project for the day.

That's not gonna happen. Not this time anyway. Sorry :(
Our hotel is right next to the Reliant Center. I can see it from my balcony window.

Pre-consultation is on Monday and the procedure will be on Tuesday morning. I will be allowed to stay in the hospital (Texas Children's Hospital) with her Tuesday night. She will be released on Wednesday and then we fly home later that day.
That's the trip in a nutshell, but I'm sure you guys are wanting more details.
Last year Tracey was diagnosed with having a venous malformation in her left arm. The vein walls expand when blood flows through and pools causing painful lumps in her arm. It has not restricted her activities in any way and only bothers her most when it's cold.
But it's not going away and needs to be fixed through a procedure called sclerotherapy.
So please pray that our trip goes well and that the procedure goes smoothly.
If you want, you can send notes or gifts to patients through the hospital. I am sure Tracey would really appreciate having some notes or gifts from friends and family.

So you, my lucky followers get to learn about my mysterious disease.
I had been pretty happy about the fact that I had made it this far thru the winter without getting sick. Everyone else in my family has been sick, tons of people at school are sick; but I had somehow escaped all those dreaded germs.
Until Saturday. I started feeling a little yucky.
Sunday. Yuckier still. I stayed home from church and laid in bed the whole day.
Monday. Despite earlier hopes of making it to work...it wasn't happening. At some point that day I found a flashlight (you scoff, yet you don't live in a house fully of pesky preschoolers and preteens) and peered inside my throat. Sure 'nuff, there were those tell-tale white spots in my throat.
So after dragging to myself to the doctor and listening to some old man get his toenails clipped in the next exam room I got my diagnosis.
So what is it?
Doctor doesn't know. Could be this, could be that. We'll send you home with a handfull of prescriptions and come back if things get worse.
Great. Fabulous. A mystery disease.
They referred me to an ENT doctor. But the first appointment they had was in 2 weeks. That'll do me a lot of good. The spots will either be gone, or I'll be dead. Either way it won't matter.
Tuesday- Feeling mildly better. Throat doesn't feel like it has rocks in it.
Wednesday- going to attempt going back to work. We'll see how that goes.
