I've earned my PHD.

Warning.... for extreme sarcasm

I have thought long and hard about this(I guess that was the first mistake) I know I have earned my PHD. Really, I know I have and yet I didn't even have to attend a major university. I feel like I have gone to great lenghts to achieve my PHD. I have spent loads of time not to mention enough money to have attended ANY major university. I think the last thing is to write my thesis and I have a million ideas for the topic. I'm just not sure where I'm suppose to send my thesis when it's complete......For you see my PHD is going to be in "Pediatric Home Diagnosis !" Yes, I know there has to be a diploma with my name on it just waiting on me...but where? As, I have said I have put in the hours, money, and not to mention I have hands on with the patients at ALL times. After 16 years I feel I'm ready to hold the honor of my PHD. I'm pretty sure that when I receive my PHD I 'll also get a ID card with it. This card can be shown to all Physicians in the medical field upon our arrival to their office. This way when we get in the room we can just cut to the chase. I guess where my degree differs from the others I'll be working with is, when I stand to take my oath I'll say that "I know at times I'll be wrong and I'll admit them when I am!" OK, there was the sarcasm again...sorry! How many of you Moms out there have also earned your degree and not received it yet????

I guess this post stems from the ENT appointment I had with Jonathan yesterday. I posted on his appointment last night....sigh...sorry for the sarcasm. I'm going to have to pray long and hard about writing this post, especially after my girls read it. You see I tend to very sarcastic and it's something I've been praying about and working on, and obviously have only taken baby steps. It took me 36 years to get this way, I wonder how long it will take to get rid of it? Some sarcasm can be fun but there is a time and place for it, mine seems to be all the time. There are things you hope to pass on to your children...this isn't one of them. Yet, each day I see my girls are getting better and better at it....Ugh!!! Thank you Lord for loving me with ALL my flaws!

I am not sure I have earned my PhD yet but I'm on my way!

Hope everyone is starting to feel better.

Between Gavin and I, we've been through about 15-20 surgeries, about 6 months hospitalization, maybe a dozen different diagnoses, and countless specialists. I'm definitely earning my PhD. I think I'd be on my way with Gavin's stuff alone, but my Lupus seals the deal. My degree would be in Differential Diagnosis with a special concentration in exceptions to the rule.

I'm so behind on commenting, but I have been reading and praying for William and Jonathan during all this. So sorry for the frustrating with the ENT! Ugh!

Just wanted to let you know I gave you an award :)

I am so sorry you keep going through all of this.......... I want all my little friends feeling better and you my sweet friend back out and about. I sure miss you. I look forward to seeing you real soon- hopefully tomorrow to give Jonathan his present.
