I knew it!
Well, I went to the cardiologist yesterday afternoon. Looks O.K. so far, they have to do an echo cardiogram on the 20th of next month *sigh* more waiting.... I am confident that everything will be fine, I AM Big Mama of course. They can't schedule my surgery for my other issues until they can be sure that my heart is gonna be good. SO needless to say I have some more waiting for everything else.
I know that men do read my blog and I LOVE my men!!!
SO, I have to warn you that I am going to do a little "girlspeak".
As you all know I don't talk girl very often, but I feel that you all need to know a little bit more about the what I like to call,"south of the border issues"...
I have had a non-stop period for over two years (gross!).....(visual!)
Thanks alot!!!! Sorry....
This is what I am trying to get taken care of.
Unfortunately I have also had high blood pressure for about 11 years and not one Dr. has taken it seriously until now. Now that I am showing signs of heart disease. Now that I am needing to go under.... YAY! Thanks..... That's why they call it practicing medicine I guess. My dad has always had high blood pressure and all the docs knew, I kept telling them, but no one listened. No dumbass I don't eat salt and yes I do drink lots of water, it's still high, it STAYS high, so what are we going to do about it brainiac? FINALLY!!! Someone listened to me and I can finally get it taken care of. But now that they think there may be a problem, all the other not so necessary things can wait. Yeah, let me recount that for you, my iron is low, wonder why? Oh yeah I am bleeding to death, that's right! You would think with the volume of blood loss (eeeewwwww), I would have really low pressure. I guess not.
So my friends, that's it in a nutshell. Eventually I WILL be fine, right now it's just a great big waiting game. At least I have WAY more answers today than I have had for years. See, I told you I'm fine, it just unnerved me....

Please keep that good Karma and prayers an/or positive energy flowing my way. I went to the Dr. again yesterday only to be told that I have to see the cardiologist on the 28th and they will be scheduling surgery for "other issues" after that. I am positive that I am perfectly fine and they all are making a mountain out of a mole hill. I got a little worried when "L"<-my Dr. said (with an oddly furrowed brow),"I have never in all my years seen anything like this..." Gee what a way to make a chick feel good! I think it must be a conspiracy, I have ALWAYS been healthy. Perfect blood work, perfect PAPs, perfect weight range. I haven't gained a pound in almost 12 years. I mean I eat right I exercise (now) and I feel pretty good.
I think since I'm turning 40 in June they are just trying to freak me out. Kinda like a great big PUNKED! Let's punk Big Mama...
I know in my heart that everything is going to be O.K. I really do.
Just so you all know, you do rule and I really do appreciate you more than you will ever know. I will be back to my oddly wonderful self soon, I promise.

Hey, I am sorry for not posting sooner, but I have a LOT on my plate right now. I will find out more tomorrow. I don't want to say much except I really need some good Karma and prayers right now. I will have a few answers tomorrow but the big stuff will have to wait for a couple more weeks.
No, I'm not pregnant either!
Take care everyone and I promise I will let you all in on it when I am certain of what "it" is.

Are you as excited about this as I am? I didn't think so!
1) I got attacked by a wild goose and it ate my hamburger. TRUE
...and it scared the hell outta me too! To this day I have a healthy respect for those MOFOs.
2) I was asked to leave a roller rink because I didn't have the money to rent skates. FALSE
I can't believe NOT ONE OF YOU GUESSED THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3) I worked at a full service gas station pumping gas when I was in high school. TRUE
It was a Sunoco station. Yes I am that old and they had full service back then. Hey they still do in some places back home.
4) When I was really young I fell out of a tree and broke a disc in my back. TRUE
Unfortunately I was in the 3rd grade and I have to wear a lift in my shoe now because of it.
5) I took Home Economics in school. TRUE
This one seemed most popular and I can't imagine why. I mean, I am pretty good on the home front, I can cook clean and sew. I am not a domestic goddess by any stretch of the imagination, but I can hold my own!
Y'all are so much fun! Thank you so much for playing. Now you know just a little bit more about the wonderful mystery known as Big Mama.

Stolen from NWJR, just because....
Written below are 5 statements about me. Four are true; One is a bold-faced (IN YOUR FACE) lie. Now your job is to try to figure out which one it is............NO CHEATING (if you know me)!
1) I got attacked by a wild goose and it ate my hamburger.
2) I was asked to leave a roller rink because I didn't have the money to rent skates.
3) I worked at a full service gas station pumping gas when I was in high school.

Is this...

just the most beautiful pic you have seen all day???

This totally beats reading stories about poor sweet Anna Nicole Smith or sad little Brittany Spears?!?! I am so lucky to have such a great crew surrounding me. BG and I have talked a lot about the "downfall and/or death" of celebrities. I asked my sweet little Babygirl why does that have to happen to these people? In her sweet 11 year old wisdom came the simple answer,"Their mommies didn't love them enough..." You now, the more I think about those two girls and their issues, I the more I believe that she is right. Had Anna's mom loved her and guided her just a little bit more instead of giving up on her, she could very well been here today. If Brittany's mom loved her just a little bit more, she would have had a childhood and not had to rebel. I feel sorry for her. I know the majority of people think WTF! she has tons of money and can do what ever she pleases. Which is true, but you can never give her back her childhood or turn back the hands of time. I think everyone should just leave her alone and let her get through this time of pain.

*stepping off soapbox now*

To all you parents out there, for the two (of many) girls who could have really been somebody, please take a minute to remember why you had your children. Love them just a little bit more and know that you brought them here to be with you for a reason.

My son asked me last night as he was getting ready for bed if I thought that he would be a good husband someday. Of course my instant answer was yes. Then I backed up, thought for a minute and said that since he treats me with love and respect he will most certainly treat his wife the very same way. He sees my hubby taking great care of me and treating me like a queen. I think that in and of itself makes my son a better man.

*damn that soapbox*

My son is in the 6th grade and had something surreal happen to him today and he handled it with the grace that I knew he had in him already. I am so proud of him. Another student in his band class came up to him and told him how much they admired him. This band mate also told him that they thought he was cute. At first my son was totally oblivious as to the fact this person was "hitting" on him. When it dawned on him (yeah the light bulb did finally go off)...

he looked at this other little boy and told him thank you.

*Post edit thoughts: I have been thinking about what you (all) said about the troubled girls Anna & Brittany and yes, I think there are people in this world who were born to self destruct. I pray my kids don't fall in to that category. I just thought what my daughter said really does ring true in a lot of situations. I have tried to raise my awesome twosome to have a mind of their own. To believe that what they think is worth thinking. And to also remember that they mean the world to me but the rest of the world doesn't see them the same way... I also believe that people often times put their little brats on a pedestal and try to make the kid think they can do no wrong. In the real world no one gives a shit about that kid and it makes it really hard to get along in society. There has to be some sort of balance there somewhere...*
*rant over*

You guys totally rule! Bro1 is going to be fine.
It will just take some time to heal. Here he is pictured with his grandaughter. At this point he is just happy to be alive and getting better by the day. He did find out who one of the 3 stooges in question was and he takes great comfort in the fact that this moron has a horrible life. From what he understands, this "person" is split from his wife (something about spousal abuse) and is not allowed to see or have any contact with his children... Karma, yep she is a bitch with a longass memory....

Again, thanks for all the great thoughts and prayers, we really needed them.
Oh and for all you out there, yes we had bad storms and yes we are all O.K. Thanks for your thoughts!
