I have been having difficulty sleeping at night.  Last night was my first good night's sleep in several days...6 hours uninterrupted.  I felt good enough this morning to get up and help get the kids ready for church.  My energy level is extremely low, so this was a big deal...especially for the kids!  This evening we will be headed out for my son's Cub Scout Awards Ceremony.  I am conserving my energy today for him!

We have also decided that I will not be staying in Manchester for the surgery.  We will be meeting with a surgeon down in Boston on the 31st, if not sooner.  He specializes in Endocrine Surgery...he is the director of that dept. and he is also a researcher and professor at Harvard Med School!  My endocrinologist did not even blind an eye at our request to go to Boston and immediately suggested this particular surgeon.


  1. I have been thinking about you Wendy. I know this is a hard time for you right now. I am anxious to hear good news form your appt with the new surgeon. Maybe you can move forward with the surgery and work on getting well and stronger SOON.

  2. Boston is the way to go. My grandmother had a brain tumor and they suggested a surgeon down in Boston and he did an amazing job and she lived for 15 years after that.

    As for sleep, I don't know how you do it. I have to get 8 hours every night or I feel sick.

    My thoughts go out to you. Thank you for alerting me to this blog.
