One mass


On march 16th the techs and I were suppose to go to Seattle and see the red hot chili peppers, that's not what happened. I went into surgery to remove a cyst that was attached to my left ovary.

The surgery went well, there wasn't any complications. The cyst was 6 liters (gallon and a half) of liquid, and it was 30cm (a foot) big.

About 5 days later I went to the doctor to get my staples out. I had 19 all together (The nurse left 1 in. She didn't see it when she was removing the others). About 2 weeks went by and I was healing along and then my wound was leaking some red and yellow liquid (it didn't smell). I was freaking out because I wasn't sure if that was normal or not. Kommandant told me I had to call the doctor and find out if I needed to go to the emergency room. They told me to place a pad on it and then come in on Monday.

Went in on Monday and got to talk to the doctor. She looked at it and the wound was healing from the outside in. So the liquid was normal. The wound had healed at the very top and the middle. The only parts that didn't was the upper middle part and the very bottom (it was like a drain). Kommandant went with me and she poked around inside of my wound to open it up and then packed it up with this packing strips. Kommandant got to pack my wound 2 times a day (I am so lucky to have someone to do that to me.).

They told me to get up and moving so that I can build my stamina up. So about two times a day either Knittech or Kommandant would walk me around the block. We started off with the small block which took so much out of me each time we would walk it. 

About week 4 Kommandant didn't have to pack the wound any more. We did have to put a pad over it because I was still having a little leakage. Week 5 came and went and we stopped putting a pad down so that it could have all the air it wanted. Week 6 came and that's when I was sleeping and I scratched my scar in the middle and opened it up. I'm waiting for that to heal and I'm doing everything in my power from not scratching it.

We had the last doctors appointment on week 6 and she said that everything looks great and that it is 100% healed. I still have scabs on it and I have the middle part to heal. But I'm happy that it is done and over with.

oh my

Kommandant and I want to have a child. Since nothing has been happening I thought that I should get go to the doctor. I found a new doctor and told him what I wanted to do. He said okay and sent me to go to an ultrasound of my ovaries. The tech sent a lot of time looking at my right ovary. Since it was a tech doing the test they didn't say a thing to me and I had to make an appointment with my doctor to find anything out.

I went to the doctor and he said that he wanted me to do a CT. He said that there was a mass and he wanted to get a better idea of what it was. Maybe it was a hormone secreting tumor or it could be apart of the PCOS that they are 99.999% sure that I have. So I wait and wait and call the doctors office to see if I could schedule an appointment myself because they were taking so long; they told me I had to wait because they had to get an authorization from the insurance. (They told me when they called that they didn't need one) so I get in to do it and the gal that was the tech was really nice. As soon as I go to get dressed she told me to wait because they were having computer problems and I might have to do the test again. But they figured it out.

The results came in and the doctor sent me an email because I didn't want to waste my time and get an appointment. The email said that there was indeed a mass near my left ovary and he was going to refer me to a gynecologist to help me with my issue of a mass.

So the waiting game began again. I had to wait for the new doctors office to call me and set an appointment up. They called the next day or something like that. They had someone cancel their appointment and I got the appointment. I went and talked with the doctor and they did an examination and I have to have surgery to get the 30cm mass removed (the mass is the size of my belly.). They want to do it quickly so that it is out of me. They did a blood tests and made sure that it isn't cancerous. (It's not)

The surgery is going to be on the 16th of March. (I'm not happy because Knittech and I were suppose to spend a week in Seattle going to a concert and enjoying out time). Knittech is going to take me to the hospital and help me recover from this.

I told Mr. Boss Man and he wasn't happy because he relays on me a lot because I'm pretty much the only one that bends over backwards to help. I told my staff that I'm not going to be here for 4 weeks and I needed them to help Mr. Boss Man out. I'm afraid that they aren't going to help.

After telling Mr. Boss Man the news I went home and I drank a whole bottle of wine myself.  It was not a smart idea but that's what I wanted to do.

How did we get here?

One of my resolutions this year is to get checked out by the doctor and make sure everything in my reproductive system is fine. I wanted to confirm that I have PCOS. The last doctor I went to said that she was 99.999% sure that I had it and that I didn't need any tests to confirm it. All I had to do was loose weight and take metformin and I needed to loose weight.

My goal in life is to have a child by the time I'm 30. So I went to a different doctor last month and told him my goal. The first thing he did was he wanted to 100% confirm that it is PCOS. So I had a blood test to check my hormone levels. I was expecting a phone call with results, a letter came in the mail with the results. (I really liked that). The next step is getting an ultrasound done on my ovaries to see if there are masses on or in them. (The doctor said that I would get a phone call to set the appointment up and nothing happened for a week and I called them and set up the appointment myself. At least it got done.)

One of the things that I didn't like about the doctor was that he kept saying that I am obese. He could have said overweight. I'm not going to nitpick that issue with the doctor.

Sunday, October 2

I've been feeling a little stressed out since Mr. boss man told me he really wants to quit. Nothing I can do or say will make him want to stay. He's unhappy with his job which I can understand it stressful when you're the boss and you have to answer to higher ups, your employees, your assistant and just about everyone else. He says that he may want to stay to help out with the engraving for the holiday season and then he might go. He might even go before the holiday season which is really stressing me out because I don't want to be the boss when it comes to the holiday season. We still have to hire three engravers which we're trying to get one of the master engraver back that we normally get it. And I'm not even sure if he's going to come back. Then I have to hire a sales person for the season. Then I have to hire a permanent employee that only gets eight hours a week. And it's not great hours either it's normally nighttime four hours per shift.

When I got into work the first thing I did was clean my engraver. I figured out how to tighten the vise block. This morning started out with customers coming in and wanting to get their stuff engraved. There was a lot of handholding because it was customers were like: "how would you do this or how would you do that". I did make my sales goal today and it was in before 1pm.

I'm trying to get the redisplay started and it's just not happening. There's just way too many people coming in when I start trying to work and they want to ask questions, they want to see things, they want all of my attention. Whenever I start something I have to immediately stop because somebody come in I get a phone call that they want to ask a hundred questions.

So that's how my days going so far. It's about 3 o'clock so I think I'm gonna try and get my redisplay started and see how far I get.

Kommandant and I have been working a lot because of the holiday season. Kommandant has been working his normal schedule with Saturday's playing the Star Trek game. 

Me on the other hand have been working long hours. I think last week I worked 54 hours. This week I think I'm close to that again. We just didn't hire enough people this year. No one wanted to work in the mall. We hired 2 people out of the 4 to 5 people we needed to have. So I'm a little tired of working. Over the 2 weeks I've had 2 days off that weren't close to each other.

Today starts a new week and I have 3 days off in a row. So I'll be able to rest and not have to work with people at all. I'm not looking forward to working New Year's Day because we are going to the judge's house and playing games. But the store is just going to be open for 8.5 hours for 2 days, there is no point having 2 people come in for little bit of time.

For Christmas kommandant got a PlayStation 4. Knittech and I have been playing Diablo 3 on it. Kommandant just got fall out 4. Don't know when he is going to have time to play it, since knittech and I have been playing on it more then him. Knittech went and got 2 more controllers for the playstation so they can play with us.

Kommandant got me an iPhone 6s Plus phone. I LOVE it. I haven't had the chance to put it down when I'm not working. It has a GREAT battery life and I have been using the crap out of it. The speaker is nice but I just got head phones and I have been using them.

Kommandant and I have moved. It sucks because I loved LOVED that house that we were in. We didn't like having the roommates that we did because they didn't do anything and they were very messy. I don't want to live with teenagers unless they are mine or related to me and I can tell them what to do. 

We have been cleaning the house so the landlord doesn't have to do much when we are gone. He will have to replace carpets and do a deep clean of the whole house but that was there before us. We have been vacuuming the house and I have clogged 1 vacuum cleaner to the point of no return. The second one is the one that is used often so we had to fix it. It was clogged good. It took about 15 minutes to fix it.
I have to go to the house tomorrow and vacuum my room and go back through and vacuum the house and then sweep and mop the house. I'm not looking forward to it because I am going to be doing the house we are in too because it needs done.

The head of the locust bought some bread for us because she ate some of our bread. She got wheat. I don't have a problem with the choice. But I have grown into a food snob. I like good bread and not the cheap breads. I have brands that I get. It was a nice gesture for eating my bread.

So we have had an issue with lights being left on and messes bring left. Kommandant and I have to get use to having other people in the house that make messes too. I know we aren't the best people to say that we aren't messy because we are. We have to clean us after we are done eating or leaving a room. We had our own space and we used the space the way that we wanted.
I thought the problem was going to be the dishes. But having a dish washer makes a huge difference. We put our stuff in the washer and we are done. We have been using cups and I use 1 cup that is the iron horse cup and nothing else. Kommandant uses a couple of different cups. We use more cups then anything else. So I have to talk to Kommandant and the head
of the locust and get them to use 1 cup and keep it out and make sure they know it is their cup so we don't run into the issue of no clean cups in the house.

Come on end of the month!!

I'm freaking out a little bit. We have 3 days before the end of the month and we have a lot of stuff still in the house. I don't know how we are going to pull it off.
Kommandant was suppose to go to the house today and do a load to the storage and I have his keys! So we are going to go to the house and load up the car and go in the morning tomorrow.
Kommandant and I were at the house the other day to do a load and by the looks of it the roommates haven't touched anything or moved anything out. I'm stressing over it because I don't want anything bad to happen to me because their stuff is still there and they haven't moved out.
I'm going to ask for the keys and the garage door opener Tuesday because we are giving the keys over to the landlord Wednesday.

I was able to take the coffee maker to work and it is the best thing ever. I am not a huge coffee fan and my boss things that I like dark and bold coffee. I like the medium roast and I don't like to have it every day. But the roommates have been using it for the last year and I couldn't do what I wanted with it because they were using it and Kommandant didn't want to have any conflict in the house because of it.

The other night I was making a chicken roll up and I was looking for the cheese that we brought from the house and I couldn't find it, all I could find was knittech and grilltech's cheese. So I didn't use any. I asked them in the morning and the head of the locust has said that she ate it. I thought we were done with people eating things that isn't theirs.
The first or second night I got to feed rascal and the locust was saying that we was going to eat his food for lunch. I had to tell her not to because it was animal food that we make.
