Knee update...

Today was my visit to the orthopedic surgeon for a follow-up on my knee with the meniscus problem and the cyst problem. I, of course, don't want anything to interfere with our trip in December to see James get his wings! The doctor was totally fine with my taking a "wait and see" attitude. In fact, he said that before we even do the scoping and cleaning up he would try shooting it with cortizone and see if that didn't bring some relief. I promised him that I would come back right away if needed. That was great news. I told him my knee was definitely better than when he saw me last but far from perfect. However, I did emphazise that I could live with it this way, at least for a while.

In other news, James talked with Margaret, Monte's daughter yesterday. (Monte is my cousin who came down to Moody for James' Track Select.) Margaret will finish finals on December 14 so she and her Mom will be down in Corpus Christi for the Wing Ceremony. It will be so cool to have time with them again. Neat, neat people, even if they are family! :)

James called this morning to say that he and Brent passed their Check Ride and then went and did their Solo!!! The main factor from hurrican Katrina is the winds but they were still able to fly and do their 'stuff.' Oh, I am getting so excited...I can hardly wait till December!

Well, this has to be short. I'm still in the midst of DEEEEEEPPP Cleaning and I cannot afford to get 'out of the mood.' Jim is working on clear plastic covers for our window wells and I'm doing inside 'stuff.'

Glad to hear that you can go a little longer without surgery. Hang in there, you've got a friend to see in DFW before you get to Corpus. :)

We are counting on seeing you in Corpus! Otherwise, you'll have to pop into the airport like Gayla! :)
