We had a little bit of a health scare, but all appears well. There’s a dime-size lump under DaughterGeeding’s right breast. She thought it was pretty cool, but her mother and I were a bit concerned. Doing your own medical diagnosis on the Internet can both be alarming and calming, but no matter what, we wanted her pediatrician to check it out. As expected, it was just something called a breast bump, or medically speaking, premature thelarche. The bigger concern was precocious puberty, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. It should go disappear no longer than two months.
I will admit, when I first felt the bump, I was optimistic, however, for a brief moment, my entire world stopped down and began crumbling.
We got Christmas cards in the mail from my family in Vietnam yesterday. It was quite a surprise to open up a card and then see an origami type sail ship unfold.

It wouldn’t bother me in the least if this show won every single award it’s eligible for.
I loved the opening of ‘Fargo’ last night, it was nice seeing the cast from the first season.
Kirsten Dunst’s breakdown scene and Patrick Wilson’s story about the fall of Vietnam was some fantastic acting.
“It’s the rock we all push, men. We call it our burden, but it’s really our privledge.”
“You’ll know the angels, when they come, because they will have the faces of your children.”
“The words we say and the words we hear aren’t always the same thing.”
I loved the ending, it was tense for me up until the credits. The show was so unpredictable I was expecting something drastic, which kept me on edge. I really appreciate not having to see some kind of sentimental death scene of Betsy and having some loose ends with Hanzee on the loose and Mike Milligan starting a new life. Last year’s finale had a lot of closure, but this provide enough closure and it made me crave more, which a great story should.
