Still Not Home

I am staying in NC another week with my family. Travis is working 7 days a week and won't miss me much. It is also hard to leave knowing that it was 2 1/2 years since my last visit. It is also difficult to leave knowing that I have to head south instead of back to my beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I really really really can't stand the idea of it. I don't hate Texas - it just isn't my home. One bright spot is that I get to meet Stephanie on the way - and that helps a lot.
I am connecting with my family and having the absolute best time that I have had in a long while. It is terrific. We played the.most.fun game of Apples to Apples with Laurie and Chris last night. I have attended ballgames and cheerleading competitions, cookouts, and all sorts of other things. To me, right now, it really doesn't matter as long as we get to be together.
In other news, concerned about taking another week to head home and not getting back to the doctor about my test results from a month ago, I was finally able to get a nurse to review them with me over the phone somewhat. I have to have a D & C when I get back, and they need a biopsy. Would anyone like to stand in for me? Yeah, I thought not. So still no really conclusive answers - just a suggestion at a different type of cancer than I originally thought. More waiting. I am not a patient person.
I guess I'll head home next week - whatever that means.


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I can only imagine what that feels like.

    HOWEVER, you get to meet Staphanie!!! Yeah!

  2. Oh my friend! Will be praying about those tests. You need to get home and get them done with so you can know what is going on!!! (((HUGS))) I'll also be praying that God will help you to enjoy the 'journey home'. I know that seems impossible right now, but our God is almighty!!!!

  3. Well, first, I guess it is good that your hubby has enough work right now to fill a week? Bet he misses you all. Glad you are enjoying your visit. Get home and get that biopsy just done! And then let us know the results. In the meantime, will pray for negative results- as in negative,no cancer!

  4. Enjoy your time with your family! I have not been home in 2 1/2 years now and it's tearing me apart inside. I wish I could find 2-3 weeks where I could just stay with them and just be there.
    Praying for your test results.

  5. I'm so looking forward to meeting you!!!!

  6. Did you just drive by my house a second time and not stop by???

    I totally understand and I'm really glad that you have been able to spend this time with family and friends from WV. My place is a wreck anyway. . .

  7. Praying, while you're waiting.

    Still hope to meet you when you get back!

  8. It was so nice to see you again. Our prayers are with you through all of this (i.e. going home, medical & all). Keep in touch, k? Tell Kullen hi for me.cv

  9. ((((Julie))))

    Praying for you, sweetie!



Awaiting your words......
