Why it has been so long since I have posted.

So this is what I have been doing for the last little while. Don't these stitches look wicked bad? They feel about the same as they look. Well a few weeks ago I had a lump in my throat checked out, and it turned out to be thyroid cancer. So Dr. Catten said we need to remove it. So Thursday I got my entire thyroid removed. And to be honest with you I thought that I was pretty tough, but I was not near as tough as I thought. This hurt like the Dickens. I am doing so much better now, and I am home resting. I will have to do a radiation treatment in like six weeks, than I will have a scan every year for five years. But the worst part is over. If you look really close at the picture you will see the staple marks around my wound from where the Dr. stapled the drape to me. I would think maybe tape, or something would have worked just as well.

Glines Reunion

This was the Glines Reunion, we started at the Dinosaur Monument thingy. Michael was pretty focused on finding those dinosaur bones during the dig that he didn't even notice me take the picture until afterwards. Chloe absolutely loved running around with her dad.

Then it was off to the new recreation center, which by the way is so cool. Chloe is not at all afraid of the water. If I don't hold on to her all the time, she is okay with walking into the deeper parts of the water. So I have to keep my eye on her all the time. I have to watch Michael too, he is not a very good swimmer. Sometimes I have to remind to walk, and not run on the wet floors.

The next day we headed to Iron Springs to go four wheeling, and my dad let us borrow his motorcycle. Chloe loved going for rides. Just so long as she didn't spill her smarties while we rode. That made her upset. When it wasn't her turn to ride, Chloe walked around to each person and made them share whatever snack they were enjoying. That is why she has such a messy face. She is such a lunch mouth. The reunion was so much fun, and everyone was able to be there. That hasn't happened for a little while! Hopefully next year will be just as fun.
