But I feel it coming...I have several things creeping up. First on the docket, my round of thyroid cancer follow-up shots and scans the week of February 8th. I'm not freaking out about it like I used to, especially since I'm keeping with my New Year's resolution of no more thyroid cancer in 2010. But it's a process - physically, emotionally, logistically. It's a pain in my routine. But you know, if that's all I've got to contend with in regards to thyroid cancer, I'll take it.
So here's the schedule:
- Feb. 8 - thyrogen shot (preps me for the scan)
- Feb. 9 - thyrogen shot
- Feb. 10 - small dose of radioactive material given (no glowing green will occur...I think!)
- Feb. 11 - whole body scan
- Feb.12 - blood work
What is the other "storm" that is approaching? Spring...every parent with a school-age child knows what spring normally brings: crazy schedules. Soccer, dance, field trips to Hershey Park, awards ceremonies, choosing classes for the next year (middle/hs students), school projects that should have been worked on all year that are done in a weekend, and standardized tests just to name a few.
With Mackenzie about to choose her classes for her senior year of high school and making college visits lately, I'm a little melancholy about spring. Yes, it's a storm and it's crazy and drives us parents nuts....but we wouldn't have it any other way, right? I love that my kids are active and engaged in life and in school, and that I am along for the ride.I don't have many of these chaotic springs left with the kids thanks to them growing up. Who said they could grow up anyway? I'm going to enjoy every minute...oh, and also complain, but you can ignore that part or better yet, remind me what I said here about "enjoying every minute".
