Taking a Break

For those of you that didn't know, I had a cyst removed yesterday from my chest area. This was just an in-office procedure and the cyst was removed simply because it became infected and was in an area that was causing lots of discomfort. Of course my initial mind went to "is it cancer", but it wasn't. It was just simply a nasty cyst that needed to be out. The procedure went great and I am glad I went through with it. ( I really wanted to do it at the hospital under outpatient surgery, but really it was no big deal)

Here's the problem, I don't do pain!!! I willingly took my pain pills on schedule before any pain set in and enjoyed a quiet day on my bed with the door shut. (this also meant I was a little loopy from my medicine) It's sad that a mere cyst removal is the only way I will allow myself to take a break from our busy life with 11 children.

I am so proud of J and the kids, the wheels still turned, dinner got cooked, laundry got done, and life went on without me. Sure, there were a few messes left out and beds not made just right this morning, but I loved my mini-break from being fast paced 15 hours out of my day. Thanks to my sweet family for giving me my quick break!!!
