I was relieved as well, but it was his expression (and the startled one on the normally stern doctor's face) that made me grin from ear to ear.

The not so great news is that I am being sent to my 5th doctor, for probably a lesser surgery to remove cartilege fragements and repair some of the damage to the joint. But ruling things out is getting closer to an answer, I am sure.

WooHoo Laurie! I'm so glad you don't have to have a replacement yet. It is a very grisly procedure. But sadly it leaves you with the knee issue. I hope the other lesser procedure will give you some relief. Are you having spinal issues from an altered gait?

Last thing that made me smile was Goodweeds post about shoulders/butts, why women are dangerous, and why they should never tell me I am cute!

My whole day today was full of smiles, it started off with a call from Cade and Carson telling me don't cook breakfast ma we are bringing YOU something..Then when they got here they had breakfast jacks for all of us and even hot coffee..It was so nice to sit with them and my daughter and enjoy breakfast..Daughter and Carson left and Cade helped me get ready to do an exchange,he stayed by my side the whole time.While I was doing the exchange I started to say my morning prayers and he asked me if he could too..I said yes and that I had a special one I wanted to do and he added his own little prayer to that..He is really a wonderful kind little boy Then, we made cookies and had lunch and played on the computer..When mommy came to get him he gave me great big hugs and kisses..I walked them to the car and he said i love you ma, see ya in the morning...What a wonderful day I was given..
