When it rains, it pours!

Well, today has been very interesting. I have been bothered with right hip pain, lower back pain, and right leg pain for almost a year now. I have had MRI, x-rays, been taking enough meds to kill a horse and still no relieve from this PAIN in my A**! I finally got them to do a xray of my right hip. Guess what they found? Just bone on bone. All of the cushion between the different bones are gone! I am now in wait mode. Waiting for an appointment with the orthopedic doctor, waiting to find out what he will want to do, and waiting to find out how we are going to survive with me out on medical leave again! I had two major back surgeries in the fall of 2006 and the spring of 2007. Please keep me in your prayers. I am not a good person who deals with pain. I am a whimp,

My son, who is in the service, his life is turned upside down and all around again. The girl he married way too soon, are now seperated. They were seperated in space by the fact that he is in Italy with the 173rd Airborne and she is here in Conover. They were married a year last Sept. They lived as man and wife maybe three months out of that year. Eric was in Afghanistan or Italy for most of the year. I knew it would happen, but hate that he is hurt ykwim.

Dana and her man are getting married sometime this year. 2008 was not a good year for her. She was plagued by breathing issues and was mistreated with steroids for way to long. She had all the bad side effects of the drug. She gained a lot of weight, she had the hand and feet swelling, the mood swings, the legs aching, and the insomnia. So, her wedding was put off because of her sickness, I think she wants to wait until she feels better before they get married.

I have not been scrapping or stamping much. I do stamp once a month since I go with a good friend to stamp night at her house.
I signed up to be a close to my heart consultant and have met my sale requirements by my friends ordering.It is Close to my heart 25th anniversary and they are having all kinds of special.
April 15, 2009 to May 15, 2009 if you order 60.00 in stamps(excluding the K size sets and the stamp of the month) you get a special kit called Tickled Pink. It has adorable paper, embellishments, and a special stamp set. Please feel free to email me if you are interested.
OK, my pain meds have kicked in and I am going to take a nap. Keep me in your prayers!
