Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to everyone! Even those of us with only four-legged babies get to celebrate!
Of course, most Mommy's have animals that will cooperate for photos. But, no, Penny is "special"! Seventeen shots and this was the only one not blurry. I love you Penny Poop. I'm glad you adopted me!

A Reminder

Just wanted to remind everyone to check your bank accounts often. I checked mine today and found three days' worth of fraudulent charges to my account. The bank was very nice and immediately credited back the amount that was fraudulent. They've cancelled my ATM card and will be issuing a new one. What a hassle! I'm still limping around. I was off most of last week because I couldn't sit and could barely walk. It's better this week but still have a long way to go. I did postpone the surgery scheduled for next week. It was too soon. I need to wrap my head around this before proceeding. The good news in all of this is that I finally caved in and hired a cleaning service. They start tomorrow. Boy, do they have their work cut out! I'll have them in weekly. That should free up some time for sewing - as soon as I can sit long enough to do that. It's always something.

After a long doctor's appointment yesterday, I have answers on the horrible back pain I've been having. I thought it was a simple (although painful) case of sciatica. Well, it seems I more than likely have two herniated discs. I say "more than likely," because that's what the doctor thinks from the plain x-rays he took yesterday. I have an MRI this morning. I'm dreading laying on the table for an hour and a half, but he needs to see exactly what's going on in there. I may be getting an injection on Thursday based on the MRI results. My doctor doesn't have much of a sense of humor. I told him yesterday I needed to have an "ectomy" or "otomy" of something to relieve the pain........ no smile, nothing. This guy needs to lighten up!
