This Morning

Because you asked :)

Computer working once again
thankful to special son in law and Cheryl at Mouse Calls Computer in Nashville, Tennessee.
Working but it seems slow
but at least I can write once again, look at mail and research what is going on with knee

Appointment at 1:00 for injection of jell and have read way too much about this procedure.
Some it helps and others it does not.   Painful but had bone marrow biopsy 2 years ago
and that is supposed to be the most painful and I survived.

The pain in swollen knee has been horrible, sleepless nights, nauseated, etc.

So will see what today brings.

Thankful my Jamie is arriving this morning after taking her children to school.

The independent one all of her life, doing things her way, always successful it seems now
it is different. 

Guess a part of the last years on this beautiful earth even with a good mind
you need help, help you can depend on and your children have their lives
and it is way it is suppose to be.   Just not the way it was in my past years.

Without being diligent in doing everything I know to do and much thankfulness and prayer
do not know of anything else to do.

If I am not a candidate for knee replacement and pain is unbearable
guess some type of pain medication I will have to take and have not wanted too.

Enough shared, a beautiful sunny morning is arriving, will do the mat and breakfast.

Received this morning from son in Thailand
a walk leading to a special place he goes too.

So beautiful.....

Good morning Ernestine. So glad you are back on line, missed you. Hope today's doctor visit goes well for you and that the first gel injection works for you. I know the fear of taking pain meds but sometimes we do more harm by not taking them. Pain can get beyond the beyond if we don't get on top of it. It is an individual decision but at some point or for a period time we need to release ourself from the stress that chronic pain brings to us. You continue to be in my prayers.

I'm so glad you did have your daughter to help. My mother was so independent through her '80s and early '90s. She wanted to get out and do! But, as more falls, etc. happened -- with 2 sons and a daughter --- she'd ask me " Can you......!?" And I thought, "Finally I can wait on you as you did me!"

I was a SAHM, and didn't work outside my home.
Culture has been changing. During my 51 years of marriage, with two children, in a small GI house, we had all four parents come live with us at times---(not all at once!) But it never occurred to us not to be there for them.
Our daughter died in her 30s. Our son's main focus is on his own wife and children, as it should be. Her mother lives in the mother-in-law suite. He's been very good to us, too. But I don't expect our D-I-L to look after to either one of us, if/when we need someone!
Thank heavens, though, for our children, huh!
Blessings---I'm so glad your S-i-L got you up and running again, and hope pa─źn lessens!
