Post scan post (no news yet)

Summer had her CT scan this morning. No results yet, but I am anxiously awaiting them. They are going to schedule her two appointments - one with an opthamologist and one with physical therapy. Hopefully, they will both turn out to be unnecessary, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

The weekend was a nice family weekend. We went to the strawberry festival on Saturday. It was soooo hot outside, but it was fun. Summer and Lexie rode some carnival rides. They were all sold out of strawberries by the time Clint and my dad made it to where they had been selling them. So, when we had enough of the heat, we left and stopped at the fruit stand close by to get some locally grown strawberries which were delicious. I actually just made a strawberry pie to finish most of them off. I am so excited because I might actually get to eat most of it. Summer is now declaring that she doesn't like strawberry pie and it is disgusting. I know she said she liked it a few days ago, but that's how it goes sometimes. She just says things to be contrary. Well, she is in her room right now thinking about where that kind of attitude is going to get her. Or, maybe she has drifted off to sleep by now. I'll know as soon as the microwave beeps which one it was. :)

We had Sunday dinner yesterday with my mom's family. Summer got to bring home the rest of the angel food cake which I took for a surprise for her after her scan. She finished it all off without offering me a bite. Sniff. Sniff. We both love that stuff! We stopped by my Grandad's house to pet some of his horses since we got there a little early. He breeds those big Budweiser horses. And, boy are they big! I can't imagine riding on one of those cause. I can remember as a child riding horses, but they were quarter horses or appaloosas. We even had two horses of our own for a few years or so. We had some good times on my grandad's farm growing up too. I just love walking down memory lane sometimes and when I go to these family dinners, especially Grandad's farm, I get to do that. Plus, I am making new memories with my daughter. Oh, life is so good sometimes. When you just let everything else go, especially negative energy, and try to enjoy it. Looking on the bright side of things has gotten me through many a day in the past year.

Well, I haven't heard anything, so I'm assuming she fell victim to a nap. Oh well, it won't hurt her. Now what to do with a few hours of unexpected free time???? I would say pedicure, but she wants to join me for that special treat. Well, this post is written, so I'm on to bigger and better things. Or, maybe just a hour or so on the couch with a Wii remote in my hand? Hopefully, I won't sit there watching the clock waiting to see if they are going to call me with results. No news is good new though, right?

I'm praying for positive results on the CT scan. So thankful that all was clear on the MRI!

I, too, can't believe they ran out of strawberries at a strawberry festival! ha! At least you were able to pick some up nearby. I bet they were delicious! And I have never had strawberry pie before, ever. Sounds yummy!
