Surgery

I went back to my orthopedic doctor today.  Not good news.  I need to have surgery to have a bone spur removed from my left shoulder and arthritis near the clavicle that has to be dealt with.  I might also have two small tears in the tendons or ligaments around the shoulder.  He plans to do the surgery arthroscopically, so hopefully recovery won't take too long, but I would love to hear any and all experiences you have had with shoulder surgery.  I'm second-guessing myself, and I need straight facts, advice, suggestions, anything.  Thanks, readers!  All four of you!  LOL

Good news - normal mammogram.

Friday Confessions

It's time again to 'fess up!  You can link up, too, at High Heeled Love.

I confess...
I am not looking forward to my next-door-teacher at work coming back from maternity leave Monday.  She is difficult to deal with and wants to tell pwople what to do all the time. She's strict to the point of being mean and very inflexible. When she was in school, she was the student who always reminded the teacher that homework was due when everyone else wanted the teacher to forget.  People say, "Maybe motherhood will change her."  But from recent interactions with her in preparation for her return, that has not proven to be the case.  I have to partner with her for some of our cross-curricular activities.  Oh, joy!

I confess...
I'm going to have to  go back to the orthopedic doctor Monday. I broke my shoulder years ago, and I reinjured it  somehow a year and a half ago or so.  I have two small tears in the muscle and ligament in the shoulder. It has had me in so much pain that I can't even sleep. I'm guessing I might need surgery.  Booooo!

I confess...
My daughter who is at Abilene Christian University this year is home for the weekend, and I couldn't be happier!  It's a 6-7 hour drive, so since she had fall break this weekend (just an extra day off classes), I confess that I paid for her to fly home to get her here quickly. She is riding back with friends who all left at different times. We are going to go to her favorite restaurants, shop, and craft.  She's also going to get her hair done as well as some other pampering, and spend some time with friends.

That's all for today! Have a super weekend!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Do you see what I see?  Yes!  A gray hair, or as I prefer to call it, silver.  I have been in denial for some time, but there's no denying it any more.

Link up with Wordless Wednesday!

Friday Confessions

Better late than never.  At least it's still Friday!

I confess...
My dad passed away ten years ago today.  I can say it's a little easier now, but you don't ever just "get over it."  There isn't a time limit on grief.  I think I am still in denial, and I'm okay with that.  My mom thinks I need to deal with it, but I'd rather just put up a wall.  It doesn't help that my step-sons twin boys' birthday is the 9th and my ex-husband's is the 10th.  I just want to hibernate during October, especially the first two weeks.

I confess...
The main thing I am looking forward to right now is my daughter coming home from college next weekend.  The take a one-day fall break, so she will get to come home Thursday afternoon.  It's a six hour drive (or longer, depending on who's driving), so I am flying her home, and she is riding back with friends.  I don't think my 18 year old is ready to make that drive alone, and the other girls she's riding back with are coming home at different times due to their class schedules.

I confess...
I'm not used to being busy on weekends, and she is going to keep me running!  First, she won't have her car here, so one of us will have to take her to see her friends or wherever she wants to go.  She and I have appointments to get our eyebrows waxed and our hair cut.  And she wants to do some shopping, and let me tell you, she can shop till she drops!  Thank goodness she's a bargain hunter!  Otherwise, I'd be even more broke than I am.  And of course, church on Sunday before she heads back.  I can't wait to see her!!!!

I confess...
I had to go to my step-son's house today to wish the boys happy birthday.  No problem with that, but his mom, my husband's ex, is living with them now, and that is awkward for me.  We get along fine, but it's just weird.  My ex has never been invited to our house.  That may change if we have our own grand-kids someday, but I doubt it.

I confess...
My favorite new show is "How to Get Away with Murder" and I think I'm going to watch it now!
