I'm so tired

I am so tired tonight!! An update on my mom.... they released her from the hospital, shes at home. She can't be alone for the next 24 hours, they only had to make 1 incision instead of 2 like they first said. Everything went fine, she has to call on Mon to set up an appointment for Thur so that is when we will find out if the tumors were cancerous or not (keep praying they are not because breast cancer runs in my family!!) She can't take the bandages off until Tues, and she's not allowed to take a shower until then either, she can have a sponge bath that's about it!
My oldest nephew (turns 14 tomorrow) is staying with her tonight. My dad is there also, but when he goes to sleep it is sooooo hard to wake him up (he has agent orange to make things worse) Any way I would like to apologize for not posting much today, was at the hospital most of it. And to say thanks for praying for my mom I knew I could count on you!!
I'm going to try and get some sleep (If I don't stay up worrying about my mom all night, I hate being 1 1/2 hours away when something like this is going on! (I get that from my mommy :-) )
Good night all and will post another update tomorrow!!

FREE sonic!!

A coupon is emailed to you, mine took about 30 seconds to get into my email!!

My mom

Some of you already know that my mom is having surgery TODAY! She found out a couple weeks ago that she has 3 Tumors on her left breast. One is on the under side of her breast and tht one is almost 3 INCHES LONG!!!
Please please join me in praying for her today, that everything goes well, pray that the drs hae steady hands and are able to get all of them. We won't know for a few days the results, the dr told her that she can't g back to work until he gets the results (3-5 days) so we should know something next week....
I will keep you informed with any news, and thanks for reading and joining me in praying for my mom cause she is so AWESOME!!!

The winner of the Panera Bread Giveaway is........

Ok before I say who the winner is want to thank everyone who entered!! Also there were several comments that didn't count because some didnt follow the rules, some were asking me a question, I posted a comment, so there were several reasons for me not counting some comments!! I have been reading the comments, looking on Twitter to make sure people were following, etc so instead of 70 comments there were only 59!!

OK I used to do the drawing and I did it 3 times the winner will have 24 hours to contact me (You CAN leave a comment here with your email address if you havent already left it on one of the comments so I can email you) If the 1st winner doesnt respond within 24 hours then the 2nd number will have 24 hours, you get the idea

OK the winner is.................

Barnes and Noble

The Barnes & Noble children's summer reading program is coming back next month:
1. Kids read any eight (8) books of their own choosing.
2. Kids use the Summer Reading Journal to tell us their favorite part of each book. A parent/guardian signs the journal when it's complete. You can also get a Spanish-language Reading Journal.
3. Children bring their completed Reading Journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 26th & September 7th, 2009.
4. We'll give them a coupon for a FREE book! They choose from a list of exceptional paperback titles.
