Friday


This week has been full of some GOOD NEWS and some VERY BAD NEWS...I am afraid..The good news is always what we want first...


I am getting better and better by the day!! I was released from PT and so happy about that one..believe me..You will not know how happy!! I feel like I have been released from jail. I was released to go back to Curves which I did this morning. I can tell you that without exercise my body just does not like to work and it hurts more and more. Today was hard but i will just keep it up and one day I will feel better again..Right now I am mostly concerned about my left knee as it was the good one and now is not doing the best!! It just has to make it until next year..This operation (we saw the bill) was outrageous in price but easy in going through it so far..Wow!! I only hope that our insurance helps us out or well...we will not go there!!



My BAD news is that my brother's wife, Judy, has been diagnosed with breast cancer!! We were all just devastated as we had prayed that the biospy would come back good but it didn't!! So many ladies are having this horrible thing happen to them..Judy found a large lump (the size of a walnut)..she went right away and there is also another one right next to it. She has opted to have both breasts removed which I think is a great idea!! I would do that if faced with this awful problem. I have not heard when yet but hopefully it will be soon. I can only imagine that she is so ready to get this behind her. She lives in Arizona and we are here in Georgia. That is my one regret right now. I wish that we were closer. I would love to be of help to her now. One GOOD thing is that she has a good friend that has gone through the same thing and she is going to walk with Judy through all of this. Keep praying..WE are for complete healing!!


I have had some great computer problems and have spent tons of time on the phone with AT&T and also with my router...what fun..But I did talk to an American twice with AT&T and that is wonderful!! They need to give these jobs to we Americans...



I worked yesterday afternoon at Curves. I have some more hours coming up as our manager is gone. I sure do need the money. Mike is doing better. His business has picked up a tad..He is finishing up a kitchen today which is where the money is. You know we have to live.



Our home is still for sale. We are not giving up on that yet!!

Our family right now is the most important thing!! The devil seems to be after them and we are not going to let that happen...

FLIP FLOP

I just wanted to give you a little bit of information regarding your surgery bills. You said that you live in Georgia and I hope that your state has this too. Here in Mississippi we have MS Dept. Of Rehabilitation Servies. It is a program that helps people that are employed and need surgery. It does not matter that you have insurance. What your insurance does not pay, they pay all of the rest. They also help with PT. It is a good program but not a lot of people know about it. I know because I used to work for them. It is worth checking out. They will not go back and pay for services that you have already had but maybe they could help with your next surgery. Hope this helps and have a blessed weekend and Happy Easter.
Love ya,
Judy

Hi Sandy, Great news about your progress...Your left knee has been working hard to help the right knee.You could put an ice bag on the left one...take care with both knees..

I will be saying a prayer for Judy that she can find the courage to face her steps through her surgery .

Have a wonderful and a "Happy Easter". Hugs, Barb

Glad to hear your knee is doing better. I hope the other one hangs in there a while.

I will have Judy in my prayers. I'm glad business has picked up for Mike.

Have a Happy Easter!

Glad to hear that you are making such great strides with the knee. I know that getting back to Curves will make you feel a lot better.

I will be keeping your family in my prayers as you all deal with this setback.

Have a blessed Easter.

I am sorry to hear Judy's results were positive. I will keep her in my prayers. Breast cancer is SO curable these days -- and if she's having the double mastectomy, I bet her chances are excellent! Stay positive! She needs that!
