I love to read!  I got four books today and I am having the hardest time picking which one to read first!  The Woods by Harlan Coben; Lean, Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich; Hide by Lisa Gardner; and Book of the Dead by Patricia Cornwell.  They all look sooo good! Coben, Evanocich and Cornwell are my favorite three authors.  Gardner is a new one.  Hopefully she will live up to the reviews! I want to take a hot bath and read atleast half of one of these books.  I prefer hard back books.  Since I do alot of reading in the tub I have found hard back books hold up getting wet a little better!  I also do not like the library and end up buying most of my books.  Again it is because of the bath tub,  the Library hates getting warped books back!  I also hate that sometimes you find stuff in library books like boogers, or pieces of food or other peoples shopping lists.  Sometimes there is some gross stuff hiding out in library books!

Cancer Sucks & Hell

Tonight my Dad, sister and I went to to the hospital to visit my aunt.  She was the aunt who about a month ago was diagnosed with throat cancer.  Well for over a week she hasn’t been able to eat or drink.  Her throat is so swollen from the radiation.  They inserted a feeding tube and they are giving her lots of fluids.  She doesn’t look real good and it hurt me so much to see her look so bad and to not be able to hardly talk.  It really made me sad and brought back so many horrible memories of when my Mom was in the hospital dying.  Cancer is so not fair.  I know life is not fair in general, but cancer is the worst!

We were talking about Heaven and Hell in the car on the way home from the hospital.  I think everyone goes to Heaven.  I think when they get there God has a strict talking to the bad ones and then they see the era of their ways and are good again.  I was talking to Shannon about this the other night too and she is a believer in hell.  What kinda things (crimes?) do you think warrant going to hell (if you are a hell believer?)

Chocolate What?

My good friend K has found out that she has Chocolate Cysts.  Which are Endometrioma.These are cysts that form when endometrial tissue (the type that lines the inside of the uterus) invades an ovary. It is responsive to monthly hormonal changes, which causes the cyst to fill with blood. It’s called a “chocolate cyst” because the blood is a dark, reddish-brown color. Multiple endometriomas are found in the condition called “endometriosis”. Although often asymptomatic, chocolate cysts can be painful, especially during your period or during intercourse.  She has two options.  Go in for (another) surgery and have them removed, along with an ovary and a fallopian tube and then have them checked out, or wait for an oncologist to rule out cancer.  I am so scared for her.  We are going to visit her this weekend in NJ.  Please hold her in your thoughts and prayers.  She has a 1.5 year old and is a teacher, being laid up after surgery is going to be so hard for her!
