First, I have to tell you that my doctor’s appointment went as expected. The most important detail is No Cancer!!! Although they did remove polyps (3) and they were precancerous. She made the comment that “You like to grow polyps.”, which means that the polyps they remove 1) grow fast 2) will develop into cancer if I don’t have them taken care of. I have the colonoscopy done every three years! And after three years, I have more polyps.
I am young to be having colonoscopies done (42) and this is my third one…the first in 2012, I think. I’m not sure at this point…all I know is every time they find polyps, they are precancerous, and there is a family history. The doctor also said she didn’t care what was going on in my life, I need to have it done. So, in three years I will be going back.
Ok, that’s over with…now on to my post!
About a month ago, my boyfriend and I watched with great interest as the Cardinal built her nest. The male was always close by. It took almost all day long…
It’s in the white dogwood tree near the deck. Very easy to spot…but not in the best place. Well, it is in a tree, but the branch that she chose wasn’t the most sturdy. I’m guessing they are young Cardinals.
The next day, we had a wind storm and, at this time, the Cardinal was still sitting on the nest. But she didn’t stay for long. I believe that by the end of the day, they had abandoned the nest. There were times throughout the day that the branch was straight up and down… the cardinal stuck it out for as long as she could.
Now, the nest is sitting there empty.
Did you know…
It’s kind of sad to know that the nest has been abandoned. But that’s way of nature…I’m sure they built a nest (quickly) somewhere else.
Hope everyone has a great Wednesday! It’s hump day!! YAY!!
