Great News!

Our minds have been occupied with health issues and figuring out college stuff with my daughter over the past few months.   It's been a bit stressful at times.  However, the past few days have been filled with great news!

First, my daughter had a new ultrasound on Thursday and the problem she almost had surgery for is almost gone!  Surgery is OFF!  YEEEEEEHAAA!  That's such great news!  Of course, she'll continue with the extra healthy/natural eating, regular exercise and the acupuncture to to continue her healing and stay healthy.

In regards to college, she is graduating in about a month with two associates degrees and is planning to transfer to a university in the fall.  She was accepted at the universities she applied at and her auditions went great.  But, the one she wants to go to the most and that offers a program that is the best match for what she wants to study is the one that also offered her enough scholarship and grant money to make it possible to attend. We're beyond thrilled!  It's all we had hoped for and more.  She submitted her acceptance and deposit on Friday.  It looks like she has an exciting year ahead!

The great news about her health the upcoming next chapter of college are so wonderful and have lifted a lot of weight off our minds.  I'm hoping that life will get back to normal a bit around here....if there's such thing.  Less stress and more creative time would be great!  Speaking of creative time...as soon as I finish this I'm headed back to my comfy couch, my new pile of yarn and the new project I started this morning.  Ahhh...yarn time....how I have missed you!

I'm so glad that she is doing better, and I am so excited (and totally jealous hehe) about her acceptance! She's going to have a great time next year, and I can't wait to see all of her performances.

It was so nice spending the day with her today, and great seeing you and your husband! Good luck on the blanket you're making :)

I'm so happy for her. She's going to do so great there. Looks we'll both have very empty nests. R is taking a job in KC. She starts the 21st. Things are a changing.

That is such great news on all fronts. She might be an example on what a healthy diet will accomplish.

And I wish her the best of luck at her new college.
