After months of
procrastination deliberation we’ve finally made a step, albeit a small one, toward getting on with the adoption efforts. Our application for homestudy is in the mail AND we have an informational meeting with an agency on Wednesday! Yee gads!
(Bobby, I need to touch base with you. What things to ask?)
So, I’ll admit I kind of hesitated. I mean, is my health really excellent? Can you see the hesitation in my writing? I talked with my cardiologist and he said yep, I’m good to go. Then this past week I had a weird lump, well rather depression in my breast, actually no lump. All of a sudden, and it hurt! Is that TMI? Ahhhh well. Luckily, I had a baseline mammogram scheduled. Went, weird stuff on the mammogram so they sent me for an ultrasound. Ultrasound clear! Yeah. A quick call to my doctor sister in law and she says yep sounds good, no lumps, just fibrous tissue. The radiologist actually said it looked like disgustingly healthy tissue, fibrous, but healthy. Now? The indentation is still there, but it no longer hurts. The body is a weird, weird, weird thing eh?
Get this, after a fair bit of talking to Dr. Google, it looks like caffeine and chocolate can play a role. Now there isn’t coffee or tea in my diet, but maybe this will be enough to break me of my chocolate addiction?
Getting the all clear was enough to send me digging for the homestudy application form and reaching for the phone. Eek! Excitement. Note this isn’t the homestudy form though, just the application for, but we did say small steps didn’t we.
