Thanks for the image Benita!
During this time I had to go to court concerning Rusty four different times. Two of those appearances were concerning his DUI that happened in March of 2006. I came to the realization that for the first time in over five years my son is truly clean of drugs and alcohol and has been for almost a year now. In my eyes this is cause for celebration!
Two weeks before Mothers day I sat in court to hear Rusty plead guilty to three felonies that carry two strikes under California’s Three Strike Law. Needless to say this was one of my proudest moments because I needed to hear Rusty take full responsibility for his actions. I could see and feel the relief of the tremendous weight that we as a family have been carrying on our shoulders. On that day there was another court date was scheduled for what I thought would be a final sentencing hearing only to find out later it was for restitution for the victims of Rusty’s crime spree. Leaving the court room that day I was unprepared for the drama that ensued on the court house steps...
At this point, I want to tell you that I have put myself under a ‘gag order’ because I really don’t want anything to come back to do any harm to myself or Rusty until his final sentencing. However, Rusty has been transferred to the California Institution for Men in Chino, California.
After arriving home I pick up my mail and I noticed a letter from my doctors office which I promptly set aside and start listening to my phone messages. The first message is from the Radiology department saying that they wanted me to call for an appointment immediately for a diagnostic mammogram is an x-ray of the breast that is used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of breast cancer has been found. Signs of breast cancer may include pain, skin thickening, nipple discharge or a change in breast size or shape. A diagnostic mammogram also may be used to evaluate changes found during a screening mammogram, or to view breast tissue when it is difficult to obtain a screening mammogram because of special circumstances, such as the presence of breast implants. A diagnostic mammogram takes longer than a screening mammogram because it involves more x-rays in order to obtain views of the breast from several angles. The technician may magnify a suspicious area to produce a detailed picture that can help the doctor make an accurate diagnosis.

Good gawd, just another thing to add to an already heavy, full and unbalanced platter that I call my life! To be continued...
It’s hump day...yay! I am so looking forward to the weekend. How is your week going?

In a rare crime, someone recently slaughtered four dolphins off the North County coast, federal authorities announced yesterday.
The long-beaked common dolphins washed ashore between May 29 and June 5 at locations between Carlsbad State Beach and Oceanside Harbor. All had most likely been shot in the head by a small-caliber weapon, authorities said. Read more here..
Rainman will be an official volunteer at this years annual San Diego Comic Con 2007. In order to do so he had to have an 'Official Resident Evil Costume' that could only be purchase from Singapore. I told him that he must pay for the costume with his own money ($178.00). Finally after months of saving it arrived by mail on Friday! I have never seen him so happy!
Thank You, Tech!
