Life as I know it... Just a little about me and my day to day life, with my guy, my extended family, and friends... oh! And a houseful of Yorkies.

I love this collage of my daughter. I've been thinking about my little girl a lot lately. I spoke with her doctor yesterday. He was very, very nice, very knowledgeable, giving me information, and answering my questions at a level I could understand. This specific type of cancer cell is normally, a very slow moving cancer. He says we need to remove the cells that can turn to cancer, as soon as possible. I asked, just how much of my little girl would he be removing. They need to take a margin of good tissue around the bad tissue to make sure they get all the pre-cancerous cells. The size of what they need to remove is two inches long and one inch wide. The doctor said he would need to go a few millimeters deep. He said this should be done in the hospital under general anesthesia, and will cost anywhere from $5k to $10k. Can you believe that? Of course, my daughter is worth every penny!
Born and raised in California, moving to Idaho in 1992. I'm the proud parent of young adults; a 32 yr old daughter, a 24 yr old son with two beautiful grandbabies, a girl and a boy. I work fulltime outside the home, day dreaming of travel while behind a desk all day. Oh! And we have a houseful of Yorkies, a herd of Yorkies!
