03:48 pm - 2007
January I decided to begin getting a grip on my very out of control health situations. I am currently being treated for my insulin issues and appear to be stabilizing on that front. Paneta Almira McFarlandAge 95 of St. Clair Shores died February 22, 2007, at Bay Shores Nursing Care Center. She was born in College Mound, Missouri. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Chester Kent McFarland. She was a lifetime member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Louisa St. Clair Chapter, Grosse Pointe, and a member of the Lakeshore Presbyterian Church, St. Clair Shores. Donations accepted to either organization can be sent to c/o C. McFarland, 22458 Lakecrest, St. Clair Shores, MI 48081. She is survived by a son, Rodney Kent McFarland, M.D. and wife Marilyn (Martin) of Bay City, daughter Bonnie Gay McFarland-Ladore and husband Douglas Ladore of Riverside, California, daughter Candace McFarland and husband Martin Rots of St. Clair Shores, son Stephen Davenport McFarland and wife Heather of St. Clair Shores; and grandchildren April Rose McFarland and Madelanah McFarland. Burial will be at Acadia Park Cemetery in North Tonawanda, New York, where a family service will be held at a later date. Arrangements by Penzien-Steele Funeral Home, 608 N. Madison Ave., Bay City, 48708.
Since then it was expressed to me that my GYN was highly concerned that I may have Endometrial Cancer. So onto the biopsy and sonogram fun! My biopsy came back clear (YAY!). She did however find a polyp in my uterus. I am due for surgery to remove it as well as a D & C in early April. My sonogram revealed that the PCOS I have been dealing with since I was 16 has mysteriously disappeared. I don’t understand how this happens, but if they want to be gone I’m not about to argue.
My Grandmother passed away at the age of 95 on February 22, 2007.
I spent 11 days in Michigan attempting to handle as much as I could. I will try to find words for that experience for a later post.
