Tayah's Baptism!

Tayah was Baptized Saturday March 27th. She was so excited for this day. Having the dress, her hair done, and all the fixings made it so fun for her! These are some of the pics of the day, thanks to my sweet friend Hilary for being willing to take these for us!

We're proud of Tayah and her decision to be Baptized, we hope she'll remember how much we all love her and hope she will remember how great of a day it was.

The Pathology Report

I hate to talk about myself but figure I need to brag a little bit...not. For a little over a month I felt like my stomach looked different to me. Like getting bigger...I took a "test" and it was negative which it should of been. A couple weeks ago started to feel some pain on the left side of my abdomen which was familiar to was 19 years ago I had that pain and found out I had an ovarian cyst 5 lbs. 4oz. Needless to say it was removed and was determined it was a Dermoid. Which means it had hair and teeth in it and could be cancerous. I've had cysts over the years but was able to take "pills" to shrink them down. When I went in two weeks ago we did an ultra sound and I could see it immediately. My first question was, "How big is it?" The Doctor said it was the size of a tangerine and that it had a solid mass growing in it that concerned him. He said we didn't want to wait on this one and we needed to schedule surgery ASAP. We did that last Wednesday, and it sucked! I hate surgery! I was in so much pain when I woke up and the nausea was horrible. I couldn't even take a pain pill till the next day since I couldn't keep anything down. I'm sore and I look like I'm 5 months preggo. Tayah even came up to me asking if I had a baby in my tummy...nice. Oh well.

I got the call today from the Doctor on the Pathology Report. He said he had "good" news for me and that it wasn't cancerous! I was actually already planning my funeral in my head. They ended up taking out my whole left ovary and the cyst. He said it was two cysts in one. At least it's over with and I can look forward to hopefully not going through that again. Another thought, I don't recommend Davis Hospital.
