More News

¿Que esta` pasando? More like what hasn't been happening! LOL This week has been a bit of a blur.. but we got alot done. Confirmed our pastor who will be doing our wedding, received our rings on Monday.. I went and had my MRI Monday- Woo hoo! The good news with that is that nothing is torn.. no torn cartilage or ligaments. But we did confirm a loose body floating in my knee that, well, needs to be removed.. along with fixing a defect in my kneecap. No guarantees that it won't happen again and my knee definitely won't be brand-new again. Basically, I need surgery. Yippy skippy. Well, I guess it's better than having that loose body fall into my knee and locking it up. At least now the doc can just scope me and fix it fairly easily. Of course we will be waiting til AFTER the wedding to to this.. Even the doc agrees on that one. So now I am just sitting on all this info and debating on getting a second opinion or not.. not sure if the insurance requires it or not but the surgery seems necessary, especially when I go over all this in my head. I certainly don't need some THING in my knee locking it up! LOL

Looks like an MRI is in store for me.. Woo Hoo! So the Dr's office is calling the insurance company and then they'll call me.. then we go from there. I got a shot for the pain @ the dr's and a couple of X-rays, which revealed a "body" underneath the kneecap.. then the dr talked about the possibility of arthroscopic surgery.. I hope not. I mean, I have a wedding to attend in a few weeks... as one of the guests of honor! (What timing, huh?)

Well this totally sux... (another retro post)

This morning I was gettnig ready for work and decided to let the dog out.. Well I didn't have my glasses on and it was dark. I slipped on the floor and dislocated my kneecap.. I mean the kneecap was way up and over here and my foot was pointing in the other direction. Fortunately after a "blood-curdling" scream, Keith came out and luckily was able to get it back into place so my leg looked like a LEG again. (I certainly couldn't do it myself since I couldn't even straighten my leg myself! OWWWWWW! Took some ibuprofen (ah that stuff's good) and at least it only hurts when I try to walk normally or bend my leg. We're gonig to the doctor here in a couple of hours... Will keep ya posted.
