Good evening all.
Has been a good day overall. I must say got my 2 measly stitches out and my knee has been so sore allday.Wishing dr would have used a steristrip but I go to the GP tomorrow and perhaps he will put one on for me. I was told that my meniscus had a small rip in it but it was mostly arthritis and a mess. level 4 arthritis. he said come back in 6wk and will reasses my ROM ( range of motion) and see how my other knee feels by then.
Dh has again played with dd invites and has it fixed. it is like 1/16th of inch but if it isn't right it doesn't fold properly. He has 2 options for her and she will have to decide so we can get them done.
Oky gotta go get something to eat, before I start munching!
talk to you all later.

Well thought I had blogged last eve, but then it was a bit of a blur. I did go on FB long enough to tell my sil and work friends that I was home from surg. but was sure I had come here to tell my spark friends too. Sorry
Surgery is done and over, only bad part was the |IV it reallly hurt and I have a big bruise but mostly cos I was so scared that I tensed up. anyway yesterday was pretty good as I was so frozen and all but today s hard. I can't walk well, and for some reason cant seem to make my good leg walk!? dh says just walk and it is like my mind doesn't know how. But that is only after I sit with it elevated. perhaps I am just exhausted as I have been awake since yesterday at 6 am except for about 1.5 hrs off and on early this am. I wasn't sore, nervous but was wide awake all night. so today still not able to fall asleep.
dh has been super a great supper last eve, and has me set up on couch, with water, phone, meds, pillows blankets and put the elec. fireplace on to take the chill out of the air. he has to go run some errands but will be back soon.
No news on the surg. dr gave me my xrays while doing it, and said bring them on thurs to get the 2 stitches out and we will talk about what I did. If i remember correctly and can read his writing the meniscus was not torn and they only debrided for arthritis. anyway painful today but only when i start walking.
Truck issues nearly done, one more thing to cross off our list. the part for the new to us truck is here so dh is going to get that done next tues. still no word on my EI money and or breast stuff. but since I didn't think to get hubby to get those papers, that will wait till he gets home or I have to get up to pee. lol which entails stairs so I wait as long as I can.
spark award for consistency. I read my emails you got a spark award. I was so excited. I dont know how I got this or what consistency I have done but awesome and if you guys had to vote or whatever thanks. I like to think in my head that it is for being upbeat and trying hard to see the rainbow during all this although spark people wouldn't know this but that is what I am most proud of.
So now that this surg. is over, I have eaten well, getting lots of water in despite the stairs and am going to be as my mantra says healthy, happy and fit!! I will get there. I am a tad curious to know whats up with my knee ect but that will only be a week to find out.
hope all you guys are well and making great choices. btw dh makes a mean hot chicken caesar salad for me!!! cya later

Well what a shmozzle. The girl from the breast cancer clinic called and said what the dr asked is not warrantying a mamo when I allready had one less than 2 years ago. He said in his report possible cystic breast hard to diagnose. So I called my gynecologist and she said since I hadn't seen him since jan 2009, I have to be re referred. OMG the gyn was the one that said I didn't need him. So called my dr back said I need a referral.... so waiting again. but do feel okay for now. Then dh and I had a huge blowout cos he says I am not stern enough on the phone, I said there is no sense in yelling, I told them I need an apt, told them all I know. anyway in the midst of our shouting match, dad rang the bell so that stopped that. After dad left dh said I am sorry, I know you did all there was and you know I am scared too even though I don't think there is anything. FIne thank you for saying that cos thats what I want, everyone is saying oh nothing, fine I tend to agree but for those close to me, don't totally dismiss it.
So now I am fine and will wait for now, but will be on the bandwagon.
We practised putting the hitch on the trailer, first time ever, took us an hr with dh getting very angry and frustrated but that was okay cos I told myself, he is just frustrated and thats fine. we got it done, got it undone and now hopefully wont be an hour tomorrow! LOL
Also got a phone call that we take the truck in for a checkup at 7 in order to return it.
So the wheels are going on that end too. Finally
All right now to make a healthy supper. and hey I came in tired, wet and frustrated and didn't eat got a hot cup of tea and am putting rice on to soak. going to make a chicken stir fry.
Best get moving.
thanks for listening, I need my Spark Friends!!

Went for my walk with the dog this am, and boy that wind is chilly. Seems like we had our one hot day of summer for May LOL as long as it doesn't rain all weekend I will be happy, I can wear a jacket, just don't want to sit out in the rain while camping.
Called the Breast screening clinic asked for whoever and had to leave a message. argh. but okay thats as far as I can do now, I will call back after while.
So head is bck on, yea still apprehensive but then who isn't and I keep saying I am fine, I am healthy ect. Guess I am only human, I am sure everyone would be somewhat thinking find out whats up.
Got another bit of xstitch done last eve and will go up and do more in a bit. I hope I can finish it on time. Has a lot of backstitching but I will persevere.
I went to work last eve to see the clients and some of the staff. when I went to my unit there were 2 people there that I had never seen. I am off, another full time on my unit is off, another burnt her hand and is off, another has 4 wks of jury duty and is off. they are hurting big time.
I got a facebook message from one of the nurses that are leaving, and oh how sweet and such encouragement. I was crying cos she sees so much in me that I am only learning is there.
I will miss working with her and the other that is leaving, well we are almost like sisters.
So today dh is going to hook truck up to trailer and get things organized for leaving friday. We are going to have a great weekend, it is his birthday on 29th and sil and our kids will come to the campground. YES fun times another reason for good weather!!
well going for now, may be back cos feel chatty LOL will hopefully have a date for mamo by end of today.

Okay breath.,..... deep breathe Cindy come on down. I am so frustrated. Why do medical things never happen easy for me. argh.
I have been waiting since May 7th for an apt for mamogram cos dr said he feels something... anyway I called the drs - secretary said I faxed it may7th. So called screening place, we don't have any info. argh so called dr back will fax it asap. okay. so gave it a half hr. called back I don't see anything but the girl that does it is gone home. Call back tomorrow 8am. arghhhh
I really wanted it done before my surgery cos I am not sure how great will feel for a week or so. anyway will call in am.
I realized that when I was doing all this I got very scared, like omg it is real now. Have I been trying to ignore it all this time, even though I have done my deep breathing and visualizing the spot and getting rid of it. I guess not, this just makes it more real. anyway will call in the am.
Not much more, been a slow day and thats okay. havent gotten any xstitch done, we took truck in for checkup, came home and I have been reading magazines from library. Oh my....
tired, scared, frustrated, pissed off. and feel like crying. dad is here so not crying - havent told him yet cos he will freak cos of mum.
okay enough, breathing again.
