Please pray for my family

Do you ever feel like God has tested you to your breaking point?

Here is why I ask.......

So today is my birthday. I wasn't expecting anything great, just a normal day, no major upsets and perhaps a little extra love from the family. I don't ask for much.

I start off the day with a Dr appt with my Grandmother. We find our her cancer is back and there is nothing they feel can be done at this point . She refuses to have radiation again and she cannot take the chemo she got last time b/c she wasn't in remission long enough. She is 87 and her age puts limitations on what meds they will give her. She has Mantle Cell Lymphoma which is a fairly rare and male orientated type. She found this lump early and I am hoping that they were able to remove it all.

After being thrown for that loop, I returned home to pick up my son and go eat with her. DH works nights but had or should I say was supposed to stay up and watch him while I was gone. I come home to an open back door, poop in the hallway and DH asleep on the couch. I am thankful that ds was also sitting on the couch and had decided not to venture across the VERY busy road we live on!

After lunch I come home and do the dishes and sit down to wrap my head around what had happened in the morning and I get a phone call from my dd#1's school telling me that I need to come and pick her up she has hurt her foot. I load up ds and go to get her and spend the afternoon in the Ortho's office and she comes out with a boot. She has to wear it for three weeks. This is a child who inherited my OCD and cannot stand for things not to match. She is having a mini meltdown over the fact that she has to wear this big ugly boot on one foot and a reg shoe on another. Can I catch a break please??!!

I am so ready to go to bed and be done with this day! I just pray that tomorrow is better. Thanks for listening to my rant

Sorry to hear all that happened on your birthday. I'm glad your kids were safe though when all was said and done. My niece is OCD and I know she would be crying too!
