Roger does have a bone chip in his ankle, but it is an old chip and has nothing to do with the swelling of his leg.
The podiatrist said he had a bad case of gout and gave him an injection right into the ankle joint. Tonight he says the ankle feels great!
We took Kiereney back home today, Michael took us out to lunch before he had to do a 3 day training session with the present ROTC cadets and we went to the cemetary to see my parents. Most people think cemetaries are morbid, but I think they are beautiful with the flowers and I feel so peaceful there. It was like a family reunion with my parents, aunt, uncles and grandparents for me. My daughters aren't to that point yet but enjoyed hearing stories about my family and did get to visit with their great grandmother who Kelli remembers and Kiereney never met.
We got home about 6 to two righteous dachshunds who *didn't* get breakfast today(like we had to be at the Dr. at 8 and Mr. Campbell is used to sleeping in like a retired person so it was a bit of a push and shove to get out the door) and we are so happy to just be the two of us(OK the four of us with the dachsies).
I am so worn out. Not only do I not have any spoons but no spoon holder to boot. Yet tomorrow I'm determined to catch up with the Fall cleaning that got put on hold in September. My beautiful Fall weather is leaving town this week and we're back to the 80's. I tried to trade Hallie my weather for her 51 degrees she's having.
In addition to getting to catch up with Hallie on the way home(cell phones are a wonderful thing) I got the most beautiful card from Debbie in Ohio today(Mama Bear). I am looking at it sitting on my computer desk. She is such a sweet person and to think of me with all she's had on her plate lately really touched my heart that she had the thought, time and energy to send ME a card. Friends are simply the best!
Thank you for all the good thoughts and prayers for Roger. I think if he had ended up in the hospital, I was just gonna sit right down and cry. I need some downtime.
Catching up with blogs tonight and enjoying the "good all overs" realizing that my baby girl is headache-free, my husband is not in the hospital, and all is gonna be OK in my word when payday comes in two weeks.
Please.take.time for yourself this weekend. We all need to recharge.
