Today I went for an ultrasound on the abdomen.  I've had ongoing problems since Christmas.  I goofed and googled the organs the ultrasound involved.  The liver, the pancreas, the gallbladder and the right kidney.  Bad idea, really bad idea.  Test results to come tomorrow or the next day.

Daughter is on vacation with her Sweet Larry, aka Superman, when she discovered a place on her leg.  Long story short, she has a staph infection on her leg.  Don't google that either, Mom!!

So, note to self....don't google symptoms anymore.  It only causes more fear and worry.  Silly!

Just some free advice to those that might or might not be reading my poor neglected little blog.

Our neighbor passed away this afternoon.  She died trying to save her 14 year old daughter and her friends while they were enjoying the waters in the Gulf at Panama City, FL.  Sonia was 42.

Sonia was a single mom, working to support her only child, Jordan.  She gave Jordan everything, even an in-ground swimming pool that she paid for with her overtime money from her job one year.  Now Jordan is without her Mom, her hero.

I put a little stuffed animal on her doorstep this afternoon, about the time her Mom left this earth.  I hope it comforts her in some way.

Every one dies.  Some just do it much too soon.
