One lucky momma...

The sun is shining and it's Friday...what more could you ask for!!!! What a beautiful way to start the weekend.
This week, like all other weeks, has been busy. No surprise there! I went for some blood work at the end of last week and went for a bone scan on Tuesday. I, being super nosy, decided to look up the results of my blood work online...not such a good idea! The blood work showed up as being out of range???? I have no idea what that means, I just know that it's not normal! Oh well. I haven't received a call from my doctor so I'm assuming it's completely fine. I was extremely nervous for the bone scan. I woke up at 5:45 Tuesday morning to get ready to go the Abbotsford Hospital. I registered at the desk and waited for them to call my name. The whole time I was sitting there, I dreaded what was to come. My name was called, and I reluctantly trudged into the room. The technician told me to lay down on the bed and explained to me the process. I layed down and this big machine started moving. It came right around my head and came a few centimetres away from my face. I am extremely claustrophobic....I shut my eyes tight and was just praying that it would end soon! It felt like I was in a coffin. I had my arm out beside me and the technician injected radioactive fluid into my arm! It was crazy!!! Once that was done, I needed to leave for a couple of hours and then return to have the scan completed. I came back, completed the 45 minute scan, and was on my way. Now I just have to wait seven to ten days for results. I'm very impatient, so the wait is killing me!
Since I've been off work, the kids have been really helpful around the house. They've offered to help clean and do some chores that they don't normally do. Recently, Adam has been offering to do a lot for me. The other day, after he offered to help, I told him how appreciative I was. I asked him why he kept asking if I needed anything. He said to me, " Mom, I know that you're back and neck are very sore and that you aren't able to do a lot of things. I need to do acts of service and this is my way of doing it". I was blown away! I always talk to my kids about helping others and thinking of others, but never know if they really understand and truly get it. It made my heart smile to hear him talk about acts of service. I am one lucky momma!
