Random Thoughts

Wow. I just want to tell you a few unrelated things.
I was supposed to get a needle stuck in my neck this week to biopsy a couple of suspicious thyroid nodules. Just got a call from the doc saying they were nixing the biopsy because the radiologist who looked at my ultrasound photos thinks we should just re-ultrasound in 6 months to see if the nodules change size. There were no calcification's on the nodules, which means my nodules are leaning to the benign category. Hooray! I was not looking forward to being stabbed in the neck! Maybe some of you have had a thyroid issue? Any tips?

Also, I am so excited! I just signed up for a "Photoshop Basics" class! It's an eight week class for, get this, $139! 6:30-9pm every Tuesday. I went to Half-Price Books and bought all the Photoshop books/bibles I could get my hands on. It's going to be awesome!

My mare is having her final cisplatin injection this week and she gets to come home! Yay! My farrier graciously offered to haul her home on his way to a cutting show. It's really a big pain in the rear that we don't own a pick-up or horse trailer. It seems like she goes to Purdue for treatment once a year, at least. I hate wrangling rides and inconveniencing other people.

That's about it for today. Prepare yourselves for State Fair time.

Glad you don't have to get stuck!

And, yeah, ebay's good for Fiesta, but a lot of people are very proud of what they have and want more than the newer stuff's worth. That's what I generally get because it's cheaper. But, once in awhile you can get a good deal even on a really old piece. If you're up for a road trip, the factory is over near the top of WV and you can get some good deals there too :-)

Boy! I wouldn't want to be stuck in the neck either! Yowza! The boob was bad enough! Glad your mare gets to come home! Treatments once a yr? Means she's going to be ok?? :)
