My Dog, Cissy

Okay, maybe it's silly, but Cissy is a great dog and I just love her. While I was taking pictures, she kept staring at me and wouldn't move. FUNNY!
When Jack was in 2nd grade he wrote a song about Cissy. Here goes:
Cissy, she's a wonderous dog.
Cissy, she's the lovenest dog.
Cissy, she goes out on the town.
Cissy, she knows all of her nouns.
Even though she has a bad back,
I've always known she's had the knack.
I guess it is an unfinished song, but I love it! (BTW, Jack was learning about nouns in school when he wrote this)

Going to the Doctor

So it has been 6 months since I had my first batch of Scleroderma tests and today I'll see my Rheumatologist out at the Mayo Clinic. (He is WONDERFUL. So wonderful in fact, that I am paying to see him even though my insurance won't cover his costs. Ahhh, my insurance, that's another story. I'll just be greatful that I have some coverage.)

I'm super nervous to hear how my tests came out and if there is anything that can be done to SLOW down, stop, or cure (no cure yet, wishful thinking ;) this horrible disease.

I was trying to think of any blessings that have come out of having Scleroderma.... I'll get back to you on that one. Right now I'm too anxious about my appt.

Wish me luck!
