My sister leaves tomorrow morning! *forlorn look* I can hardly believe it is time for her to return home! How I thank V for allowing his bride to be gone 2 weeks! What sacrifice and it has been so appreciated here! We have accomplished a lot; all the while having tons of fun and laughter. I guess it is time to get back in our regular routine.
I went to my orthopedic doctor at the end of May about my forthcoming surgery on my knee (scoping, actually). It was a lot like visiting my eye doctor. He would ask me, "Tell me which hurts worse, #1 (and he would push on the inside of my knee) or #2 (and he then twisted and turned my knee)?" Again, "#1 or ....#2?" Well, number 1 hurt more than #2 so we are not doing the scope at this time but he did give me a cortisone injection. (Yes, it did hurt something terribly but I did survive!)
All along my foot has been bothering me but my knee was hurting much worse, IMHO. Now that my knee is doing sooooo much better however, my foot is now screaming for attention, too. I went to my foot doctor today and came home in a "soft" cast, ace bandage and walking 'boot/shoe'. (Pilot, it's like what they put on my elbow when I had the staph infection.) It has helped to immobilize it. The pain isn't totally gone but it certainly seems like I can cope much better.
Life is always throwing things at us, don't you think? The unexpected arises. Thank goodness for God's grace to being able to deal with life's unexpected issues. May we always look up and out, seeking Him above all.
I think our strawberries are ready to serve before Pilot Dad heads off to work. I've had it rough today....we attended a luncheon at a friend's home today, then went to the foot appt., came home and picked up Pilot Dad, then went out to dinner. Somewhere in there we took a very important phone call from Pilot...(aren't all his important? wink * wink*) and now for dessert.
God Bless each of you! I don't think I've told you how much I appreciate each of you who drop in for a visit...even the "lurkers" out there are appreciated.
