Here it is Saturday already and we are spending the day with Seth and Riley while Mommy and Daddy have a day out. When I went to the Dr Tuesday my pain level was an 8 - 8 1/2. With that he decided to try the cortisone shot in my knee to see if it will help any. I have to say it has been 4 days and I have had some relief to the pain in my knee, but when you add to the equation the fibromyalgia and the pain in my hip that is a constant, the shot to the knee was sort of like throwing a bucket of water on a forest fire. Although the knee is no longer hurting the rest of me still is. He was very concerned that my Vitamin D levels in my blood work was so extremely low. So he ordered more blood work to start the process of elimination to find the cause for that. Riley had his first soccer game of the season this morning so I figured we could go by the lab, get my blood work taken care of, go to Riley's game and then spend time with the boys. It was a good plan except for the blood work. Who ever was scheduled to draw blood today didn't show up. So no blood work today.
I neglected to bring the camera, but I thought the above picture would pretty much fit in. I have a story to tell you about something Alley Oop did the last time she came to spend the night with us. The head board on the bed in the guest room is metal with bars. Pretty much like the old iron head boards. Oop had gone in to plug her cell phone in to recharge and was gone for quite some time. When she finally came back to the living room she had this sheepish grin on her face. I asked her what has she been up to and she didn't hesitate to tell us all about her adventures in the guest room...... It seems that the only outlet that she could think of to plug her phone into was behind the head board of the bed so she stuck her arm through the bars, but she couldn't feel the outlet. So she then stuck her head through the bars on the head board so she could see where the outlet was. It seems that her head got stuck and she was there for quite a while struggling to get it out. When I was able to stop laughing long enough to talk, I asked her why she didn't yell for help. I mean talk about a photo op. She laughed and said that's why she didn't yell for help. So I don't have a picture to share of that one, but it gives you a chance to use your imagination and get a mental visual of it. What was really so funny to me was that she didn't want me to take a picture of something like that, but she couldn't wait to tell us about it. That's our Alley Oop though.
We still haven't heard back from the Dr about Mindy's CT Scan. The waiting for knowledge of unknown is always the most difficult part of an illness. I will let you know when we hear anything. As for friends and family in Louisiana during Gustav, they were all fine and didn't have any damage to any of the property.
That's it for now. I wish you many blessings and much happiness.
