THESE HANDS...

GOOD EVENING TO ALL...I apologize for being an awful blogger...but honestly since surgery I have no energy or ambition. Today in an attempt to blog ...I thought I would share a "story" with you.

Once Upon A Time...there was a teeny tiny Princess...and FROM the moment she could talk ...she always wanted to know if she was growing...so she would place the Palm of her hand on the Palm of her Mommy's hand to measure if she had indeed grown. This soon became a regular routine for the two of them and an important bonding memory..
 

 One morning anxious to see if she had grown...she quickly took her mommy's hand in to her own and abruptly stopped in her tracks , and sat quietly touching and staring at her mommy's hands as tears started to roll down her sweet freckled cheeks. When her Mommy asked "Why the tears?" the Princess replied "Mommy I am in such a hurry to learn and grow up ,that I didn't notice until just this moment that your hands are growing old,and they have changed, and I don't want you to ever die ".




 Her Mommy replied with this"My AMAZING ,LOVING CHILD these hands may show the wear of many illnesses ,many burdens, and lots of age that seems to have come on overnight...and though Death is scary and I never want to be without you...just remember it happens to everyone and I never want you to be scared for I will always be with you...as far as my hands ...they are my special Gift from God ...as they allow me to create to provide for you, they allow me to wipe your tears and to hold your hand to make you feel loved and safe...they allow me to tuck YOU in every night right after they turn the pages of your favorite stories,and so many other things...and even as they age they cannot stop the Love I have for you in my soul." The Princess responded "I LOVE YOU Mommy and we will Always be together no matter what!!!"
 It's amazing what children notice and think...take time to notice and appreciate the smallest moments ...because they are indeed the MOST IMPORTANT!!! GOD ONLY GIVES HIS TOUGHEST BATTLES TO HIS STRONGEST SOLDIERS..and though these hands may be aging and tired...my mind is stubborn and strong and I do Indeed FIGHT LIKE A GIRL!! I find it so amazing just how something as simple as your hands has so much meaning.Wishing each of you many hands and hearts to hold ...and until we meet again ...I'll always be just a lil raggedy Angie.Hugs

COME OVER AND LETS CHAT...A POST FROM FUDGE

I have been watching for you all...come in get cozy , this might be a long post
Good Evening to all our sweet visitors...Lil RAGGEDY is feeling a bit under the weather , as she's trying to adjust to new meds...so it is I ...blog kitty Fudge here to save the day and invite all you MEWVALOUS friends in for a visit.


In previous posts ...mom has shared her recent procedures and medical struggles with you...though her ultrasound was normal ...her pap was NOT ...which warranted another procedure called a colposcopy ( biopsy)  ...the Dr took 3 samples ...all 3 came back severely abnormal and showed signs of possible cervical cancer...so the following week mom underwent another procedure called a cone biopsy , d & c , and cauterization...which Dr said would not only allow him to see the extent of cancer but just might remove all of it and she wouldn't need any additional treatment :) ...when they got in there they ended up taking more than they had planned and froze some cells outside and left stitches inside and out...this was done on a Wednesday. AND BY THIS POINT ...WE ARE LOSING OUR MINDS AND GOING A TAD BIT MAD!! 
Well the following Monday she went back to the Dr...he had good news and bad news...The bad being the samples were plum full of carcinoma in situ and she was going to now require a full open hysterectomy...the good news being... as of now they believe this should get it all and she shouldn't require further treatment!!! PRAISE GOD!!!  SO SURGERY IS SET FOR APRIL 10 th , your prayers are always greatly appreciated...

Mom she's a fighter ...but she's worn down...she has had 6 procedures in 7 weeks with a terrible cold on top of it the past 2 weeks...on top of her lupus,fibromyalgia and everything else she battles daily. But her biggest concern is myself and Princess. So to keep her mind occupied , she's doing what she loves ...she snuggles us BUNCHES and sews her lil raggedy heart out when she can...the rest of the time she's just been resting. Mom would like to remind everyone to get those yearly pap tests and for you to remind all the ladies your life to do so as well...IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES .
Mom made this mad HARE from a vintage MOHAIR SHAWL ...he went quick to a new home

ISN'T MY LIL HUMAN JUST TOO CUTE IN HER NEW HAT AND BLING
I'm so glad you came to visit ...I sure have missed our time together. I hope you now understand why mom hasn't been posting or visiting...she wants to ...badly ...but she's just totally tapped out. Sending each of you lots of kitty kisses and many wishes for beautiful blessed days ahead...FUDGE !!

I have been able to manage the pain for the most part, so it was a lazy weekend here at the homestead, I am Blessed to have my mom only a few houses away and she was kind enough to help with Princess Fri and part of Sat while I battled through the worst of the pain.A quick post today as I've taken my pain meds and am heading back to bed...wanted to share pics today of what we did experience and wishing each of you a warm fuzzy filled DAY and until we meet again ...I'll always be just a lil raggedy Angie.Hugs

BUSIER THAN...

A 3-LEGGED CAT IN A SANDBOX...LOL Good Morning to all,I hope this post finds each of you warm and well! It is a Blustery morning here in Ohio and that dreaded white stuff is once again falling from the sky and sadly another large winter storm is predicted for the weekend.  Now to bring you all current as to explain my brief lack of blogging dedication...my injections last Thursday were nothing more than pure torture and put me in bed for far too many days ,and I have to admit I'm dreading going tomorrow for the next one. The good news is my ultrasound results were Normal ( stop laughing , I too find it amusing when they think anything about me is such lol).Bad news is that means they still don't know what is causing my abdominal pain and weight loss...however thanks to all my recent steroid injections,I'm plumping up again rather quickly :/. In other news...Fudge is LAZY, Princess well she's just something, and we are currently under attack by squirrels begging for treats, I evicted my Mr, I'm rearranging my homestead, I have finished several new works and have many in process(please visit my GOODES tabs at the top of page often as I am always adding things and don't always post them in my regular posts), other than that ...i am just impatiently waiting for Spring to arrive. What have you been doing to pass the long winter days? I apologize to all for not visiting this week on your blogs I have just been too distracted but promise to catch up this weekend while I'm in bed recovering. Today I'm sharing a lil bit of Spring in my hallway. It's time for me to head into the studio and get my day going, wishing each of you a wonderful weekend filled with Love ...and until we meet again ...I'll always be just a lil raggedy Angie . HUGS
