I won't write much tonight, for some reason the arthritis in my hands is worse than normal and they are aching to type. I sorta didn't want this week to start, because each day there is a new challenge to face and so... if I could I would have chosen to skip this whole week. ( How is that for a cop out? )
The day started out taking Lee to the Dr. He has not been feeling good for a while. He is very run down and seems to be trying to catch something. The Doctor did a Strep test on him and said that he has an ear infection and swollen glands and his throat is red and swollen, so we will see? I am telling you, I always tell the Lord that I would rather be sick, than have to watch my kids be sick. Actually, they aren't sick very often and I am ...so maybe He has taken me up on that request? :)
Tomorrow I am starting the gel injections behind both knee caps. Because of arthritis in my knees ( yes more arthritis ), there is just bone on bone. So for 5 weeks (just once a week) they will slowly start to inject the gel in there and hopefully help with the pain. I am doing pretty well. I still cannot squat, kneel or walk too far but it is suppose to get better. I have heard the injections are both painful and then others have said it isn't that bad, I will let you know tomorrow night for sure. ( Just in case any of you are wondering)
Wednesday I have to go into the dentist to redo a crown and take care of an infection/bacteria that has happened with a root canal I had. I haven't met too many people who enjoy going to the dentist, but at least I love the people that work there and soooo I know I am in good hands. I am still scared to death, I don't like dental pain but if it takes the pain I am having now... away, I know that will be good.
Then on Friday we find out if Jeff gets laid of from his job or not. The cuts come Friday, we are hopeful that we will make it through them, but we are still trying to get resumes out and think positive.
Now do you understand why I just wanted to skip this week? This is nothing... to what many of my family and friends are going through, so I need to keep it in perspective and also keep saying these quotes to myself...
“When you have come to the edge of all light that you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: either there will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught to fly.”
"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." ~ Dale Carnegie
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Good night dear friends and thank you as always for your thoughts, prayers and support! We just all need to hang in there together!
