Good news----Life

Good morning to you.  Hope and pray you are having a wonderful day today.

I got my biopsy back and its benign!!!!  Praising God for that!  Doc says that if I have no more symptoms I don't need to see him for a year:):):)  Glad to have that out of the way and not worry about it any more!!

My knee is still giving me trouble but am continuing to work with PT and do my best to follow the instructions.  I get soooooo tired tho.... It's about all I can do to move about some days let alone ride the recumbent bike.....

The state has begun the work on the new bridge.  I will try to post some pix here to show you what it looked like before and after the work so far.  The phone company has moved some of the lines and the noise from the tree removal service nearly drove me crazy.  They were literally less than 20 feet from the front of our house.  The road will be about 8 feet closer to us than it is now.  Within the legal limits, but certainly not within the "moral" limits.  The State actually had to get a waver from the County to do this work so close to our house.  No one asked me what I thought about it:( 


We may have to leave once the real work starts.  They will be working long days and there will be much noise and dirt, etc..... We still have our travel trailer (we've been unable to sell it with the economy down) so we might just have to "take a trip". We can park at our kids' and we may just do that:)  We are planning to move as the house will be so close to the road and the tree barrier is gone.  I feel like an animal in a cage.....

You can see the before pix with the mobile home and the after.  They actually took a few more trees and shrubs than in that pix.  And yes, the mobile home needs a paint job:) 

The big house is the house I grew up in.  My parents had a dairy farm and this is the farm house.  The trees offered shade and protection from the roadway and noise.... All gone now.  The pix are reversed as that is the order they were taken in and I can't figure out how to undo it.

The plan is to raise the roadway about 4-5 feet in front of the mobile (my house) and so the road will be level with us:(  Already the noise and dirt is much worse than before and its still raining.  I can't imagine what summer will bring.

Prayers would be appreciated as we have no idea what we will do.  The family trust owns the land and it is to be sold, so we will have to move.  As I said before, I have no desire to live on the roadway.  It was bad enough before.

So, I'm trying to stay positive.  I'm trying to trust God.  I'm trying to sort and pack.... I'm trying! 

God Bless You All!

I so appreciate having found you!



  1. Okay, I must have missed something...I did not know you were having a biopsy..SO glad you had good news on the results. Benign is such a beautiful word, isn't it. So sorry to hear about what is going on where you are. Ugh. I hope you find a very serene loving place to move to Elaine...we all need that, friend. God bless.

  2. Thanks Renee. I think I forgot to post about it:):):) whoops....

  3. Elaine, I'm so glad the biopsy turned out benign! (Thanks for the explanation, too!) How wonderful for you to hear that you don't have to see at least ONE doctor for a year. I can't imagine how hard it must be to have that noise around you all day. I'll echo Renee in hoping you find a serene, loving place to live.

  4. Thank you Stacy. I appreciate the good hopes. God will indeed go before us and show us the way:) I am just impatient and worry when I don't need to:(

    Hope you are doing well!
