the big day

this is a chest x-ray of a normal adult female. mine looks different. : ) according to dr. lee, i'm at 65% lung capacity. and i talk a lot. can you imagine how much more of this you'd have to listen to if i was at 100%? : ) the biopsy is tomorrow at 6am. the doctor is going to stick a tube in my nose and scrape some tissue from my windpipe. and then if he can't get the tissue he needs from there, then next week i have to go in so he can STICK A NEEDLE in my chest, going through my rib cage and my lung, in order to get the sample. good lord let's hope it doesn't come to that. : ) my doctor said, "don't worry; i have 80-year-olds who've done this more than once." yeah, well, i've never done it. kind of a different story with someone who's never even broken a bone (i'm not counting the pinky toe incident). i'm scared. and maybe just a little embarrassed to admit how badly this has shaken me up. well, that's about it. i'll catch you guys on the flip flop. and if you're lucky, i'll call you when i'm all doped up. hollaaaaaa. xox
p.s. back off---the excess smiley faces make me feel better. : ) : ) : ) : ) : )

I wouldn't sing you a song because that would probably burst your eardrums, and burst eardrums are the last thing you need on top of everything else. Come to think of it, I might give you a little Jay-Z...spoken word style.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
