I went to bed last night with every intention of going to classes today.

Yea. . . .Right

Snow LOTS of it right now. I can't even start my Explorer, besides it has no heat per-say either. So I am home doing homework so I am caught up(hopefully).
So today is a rather boring day. I'm home with the tv on, I have frozen water pipes and trying to unthaw them and I'm waiting to hear on my mom.

Today is the day that she has her surgery. I found out earlier this morning that she went in early as the doctor was running ahead of time. So I'm guessing the surgery would have started right at 11am if not earlier I think. As of now at 1:07pm MT I have not heard anything. So no news is good news right now. I will post updates if I have any. For now time to check on the bathroom to see about getting them unthawed.

So I had started something last time and the auto save on this thing didn't work.
That sucks.

So Mom called me on Friday morning. She was heading into work for a few hours to get things caught up she had left over from Wednesday. She didn't go into the "Battle" on "Black Friday", said that nothing really jumped out at her and said "Pick me, Pick me". Part of me wished I had sent money for her to get me that Digital Camera with docking port. Oh well. . . Will wait at tax time.

I've been spending lots of time off an on the phone with mom since she told me two weeks ago about her health. (If you're just now joining us here is a recap. My mom told on Veterans day morning that the doctors have found a five(5)inch mass on a kidney. They are taking out said kidney on this Tuesday the 28th.)
We talk at lest once a day sometimes more depending on who's calling who to talk about something. But on Friday morning she calls and she had me in tears. Now mind you my mom is taking this rather well really. She's trying to get all her ducks in a row and all the loose ends tied up just in case.
Just In Case
Who ever came up with that sucks. They probably where never on the sitting end of worry when someone who gave them life or they love with all their being is under the knife. Now I know that this is a common thing, or so I had someone tell me. But I can't make my brain wrap around that. THIS is NOT Common in my family for someone to just give up a internal organ. Sorry that don't jive for me. We have a nice visit really, I just got choked up when she talked how her and Dad could not even sit in the same room when she was telling him "If anything should happen this is what I want" list. He didn't want to have to face her when talking about because he knew he would break down an cry.

Now I know this is really not that bad but when all is left of my immediate family is my Mom Darla, Dad Mike Sr, and brother Mike Jr. That's it for my family. So excuse the fuck out of me if I don't want to lose my mom.

So I talked to mom again today, well Saturday morning. Nice chit-chat asking how things are going for the other. Dad was off Elk hunting, Lloyd was off Elk hunting too, just not together. My other half didn't get anything, but that's okay, he got two doe's, works for me. I've not done anything with homework this weekend. I know bad me, but just not having my brain on that with my mom having her "thing" here shortly. Shitty thing is I can't even get home to be there for when it happens. She said to go to classes then come up after Friday's classes. I think Lloyd is going with me, I don't know yet.

After mom's surgery and finals for me, I will be going to Billings after the 12th to help care for my mom. If they have the microscopic then its less down time, but. . . .If they have to open her up its at lest six(6)weeks of recoup time. Will see after Tuesday.

Anywho, its like 0130 and I want my bed, Lloyd is a sleep on the couch. We to sleep in some tomorrow, he's off to help butcher someones deer an then he comes home to do the honny-do list I have for him. Its not much but it needs to be done because I'm tired of shit not getting done.

Alright enough ranting sleep. . . .After I put leftovers away from dinner.

This weekend was a long weekend because of Veterans Day/Remembrance Day on the 11th. I picked this weekend to come home for my monthly visit with the folks and some friends because I won't be home for Thanksgiving. Elias' work has him working the Friday after Thanksgiving, silly people anyhow.

So I got in Thursday evening, got to have time with Penn/Athenais by having dinner and a few drinks. Then Friday morning I was up at 0445 to make sure she got to the airport to go to her grandparent's. Long story see her posts on her LJ. I spent time with Kari and Jim, two I used to work with at the property management office. Went to lunch at Famous Dave's that was good.

Then I spent Friday evening with Shauna till about 8pm before I went to my mom and dads. Seen my dad before he went out to go hunting with some of the guys. Mom and I got up Saturday morning late, and just where hanging out deciding on what to have for breakfast when she told me the news.

My mom had to have some tests and x-rays. They found a 5 inch mass in the x-ray, the had her got for CATscans. On the scans they found this mass on her kidney. She will have to have not just the mass, but the whole kidney removed, and soon. She's not saying it cancer but I think it is. So for now, its a cancerous mass on her kidney.

It was a shock to hear this and abit of moment for me because I was numb and didn't think much on it right off. Later in the day it was hitting me hard and I was a goober crying off an on. But over all she's handling extremely well and the prognosis is good from the Dr so will deal with it as it comes.

We spent the rest of Saturday being lazy bums and got up today and cracked out the den. I've got before and after pictures of this. We did good today.

So I'm leaving in the morning at 6am to head for home. Now I'm off to spend a few hours with mom before bed and to call my honny an tell him I love him for the night.
