Well, today was a VERY intresting afternoon!!The MRI showed a tear, IMAGINE THAT!!!!! and that I have fluid in my tendons, for the life of me I have lost the word for it and I ahve been saying it all afternoon, I need sleep!!! Anyhoo, Dr. Brady said that you know, there are risks and all of that and the possibility that it might not get better, but he feels that it will, so what did I want to do?

  HELLO....... I have lost my job, been out of work for 19 months in pain with 2 Dr's telling me "I'm sorry, there is nothing I can do for you" and "No an MRI will not be helpful" and in the span of one week this man has said "Let's see what we CAN do" and gotten an MRI that showed 2 problems so HELL YES Lets get in there and FIX THINGS!!!!!

   SO..... I am scheduled for surgery on the 19th of Feb. which leaves me able to go to FL. for my cousin's son's wedding and to see the WHOLE family which I am SO EXCITED about and my brother can do my taxes which the government should be excited about because I am terrible with numbers!(lol) And then I can get the dreaded FAFSA forms done for the girls which all you college mom's know about and can dread with me on!! AND then I will be ready to go!

   My girlfriend Cindy is going to take the day off and take care of me, she is a nurse so I will be well cared for, and my MIL wants to come and spend the night so I will be well looked after in the night!( God Bless her, she is a Saint!) My mom wants to come so bad but since she just had knee replacement, I do not think that would be such a good idea!!!

   SO.... Now, I just have to wait for my hubby to get the good news and let him be all excited and we will be off and running!!! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it is VERY BRIGHT!!!!!
