Great Quote

I have been meaning to post this quote since Valentines Day! It was in a chocolate fortune cookie. It says, "Love is realized not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly."

I am so glad the important people in my live do not dwell on my imperfections! My husband calls me "the perfect wifey and Mom". My parents think I am the "perfect "daughter. I feel FAR from perfect, but I am glad my husband and others feel that way. It makes me want to live up to what feel about me and see in me. They love me!

My Heavenly Father sees me perfectly too! He does not see my flaws because of Jesus and what He did for me, and for the whole world! That also totally amazes and humbles me! My Creator thinks I am perfect and He loves me too!! WOW! This inspires me to be all He created me to be!

Love is amazing!!

Time Change

I think I am ready for time change this spring! I live in "sunny"Florida, but I have had a really hard time lately getting up when it is still dark. I have to drag myself out of bed.I just seem to have been more tired lately. Once I am up for awhile it is much better.

Maybe it is from all the playing last weekend. We spent Sat and Sun at Disney! We stayed in the park all day on our feet and then after coming back to our hotel and eating we would play in the HEATED pool until late. Then ,beacuse you are in a hotel room, you think you have to check out all the channels on the TV. Usually there is nothing to watch , but you keep "checking". My husband and older boys went to Downtown Disney Sunday night and were out late. They brought me a present though!

Also, I have sleep apnea and forgot to take my c-pap machine. So that contributed to poor sleep. I have to admit though that I worry in the back of my mind that the tumor is back and that it is causing the sleepiness. That is one of the things it did last time. March 1st will at least answer that question!

Anyway I hope I sleep good this week end! We don't have to be anywhere Saturday until 10:30 am!

Happy Endings

Happy Valentines Day!
I watched Oprahs Valentine show today. It was very good! I like Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwoods music. They were the main guests on the show today. I loved hearing their story and their happy ending! I was just a sweet show!

My MRI is postponed until 27 February. My insurance company wants me to go out to the AF base to have it, insted of locally where I was going to go. So, I have to wait longer.

Back in the spring of 1993 I was trying to get pregnant with our second child and it was just not happening. My period was gone but the pregnancy tests were negative. Tests were run and in August after an MRI I was diagnosed with a pituitarymicroadenoma. A benign prolactin secreting tumor of the pitutary. The pitutary is very small and the tumor was only 4 mm, but this tiny tumor caused a lot of problems. I was put on medication to supress it and was told by my Dr. that when not pregnant I would probably have to take it the rest of my life. The medicen worked, the tumor shrank to 3 mm, and in April 1994 I found out I was pregnant . As soon as I was pregnant all the weird things I was feeling went away, and I have felt great since.

After Michael was born in January 1995 they did another MRI to see if the tumor grew during pregnancy. The tumor was gone and I was told that some spontainously dissappear. Since that time my prolactin level is checked when I get my physical each year. The normal level is 10 or below. Mine is usually 5. This year it was 38 and I go for an MRI on Thursday. My prayer is that if there is a tumor there again, they will see it clearly. I do not want to go through what I went through before. It was not fun! Mainly because I could not control how I was feeling and there did not seem to be a reason I should be feeling the way I felt.
