EVERYTHING'S OKAY!

A WORD ABOUT THE PIZZA IN MY LAST POST.....
It's a thicker pan pizza and you will definitely have to EAT IT WITH A FORK....maybe the edges you can pick up after it cools a bit - but probably not the centers.

Also, we never cook the ground sirloin before...we put it on in flat pieces and it cooks completely and quickly as the pizza bakes....and because it's ground sirloin I don't worry about it not being completely cooked (ALTHOUGH IT DOES COOK THROUGH).


This day started out very early...up at 3 a.m., left the house at 4, arrived in Milwaukee at St. Lukes hospital by 4:45....Doug went up to surgery at 7 on the nose!

I went to sit in the day surgery waiting room and in came Darren and MaryAnn to keep me company...this just missed seeing dad by 6 minutes.

At 9:30 dr. came and said it went great and that the tumor turned out to be a HUGE cyst (larger than a large egg!), which attached itself onto his saliva gland...he said it definitely was benign but they still sent it in for a biopsy and we could call on Thurs. or Fri. to get the results....all is well.
Went back down to day surgery to sit with him till he was okay to leave...we were on the road back home at 11:01!  What a morning!

So now he's sleeping and I'm doing this and then will sew the rest of the day.
Tomorrow we both will be able to attend my uncle's funeral which I'm very happy about.

I thought I would post this for EVERYONE who sent well wishes our way.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.

See you all later,
Karen
